    Advice Needed regarding Finance.....

    Hi All,

    I need some advice.... i have an astra 1.7cdti design that i have on finance over 5 years, I got it march last year.... it cost me a fortune... about 230 a month I think... I have now lost my job and cannot afford this car anymore i have alreay missed two payments and I need to get rid of it asap...

    I cannot hand the car back until late next year and that would be the option for handing it back.... and If I tell them that i dont want it and it goes to auction, the way the car prices are at the minute i will loose shed loads of cash and still end up owing loads of money but no car..... help needed as I have no idea what to do.....

    thanks x

    OK to be fair you will be best to talk to finance company direct. They will under stand your situation and they will advise you on what is best to do.

    Ditto, if they know the details they may well offer some advice.

    If its with VX then phone them up, theyd rather cut payment down than lose you as customer, i was with them at one point and mentioned this to the salesmen, and he said to phone them and tell them your struggling to pay.

    I assume you didnt get the extra protection cover in case you lost your job etc then?

    And sorry to hear you lost your job.
