What happens to my credit report if I am late making payments on my auto loan or my car is repossessed?

Answer:

If you are late making your auto loan payments this will likely show up on your credit report and may affect your ability to obtain other credit.

Repossessions, for instance, can stay on your credit report for seven years.
