Re: Wife co-signed a car loan... now cosigner can't pay. What are our options?

[ Edited ]

I'm pretty sure that TrishN was giving another way out of this mess. In that example, they had just traded their boat in for a truck. Then they realized they were about to get a repo on the vehicle (Honda Accord) for someone they cosigned for. They traded in their 'new' truck, their personal BMW and the Honda about to get repoed. The two autos traded at a loss. The truck at a +2k profit. Then they put an extra $5 down. 

So, in the end they have paid off the car loans without any repos hitting their reports and walked away still having a Chevrolet Suburban

Edited: reread and believe they traded the boat for one vehicle not two.
