Hello,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

Sorry to hear what has happened.

unfortunately, you are still liable for the payment of the vehicle.

If the car dealer has gone bust, there is not much you can do there.

With regards ***** ***** car itself, depending on your finance agreement, the finance company could repossess the car if you fail to keep up payments, and then come after you for balance of payment due.
