How many car note payments can you miss before they repo your car?
"How many car note payments can you miss before the lender repossesses your car? I just got laid off from my job and I'm not sure how I'm going to make payments until I find a new job."
“Most lenders wait either 60 or 90 days before they being the repossession process. So even if you don’t make the payments for that long, the lender isn’t going to repo your new car until after that time frame.
Don’t let it get to that. Instead, call your lender immediately. You might be surprised how willing they are to work with you on payments, especially if you lost your job.”
