  1. In most cases you have NO days as a grace period. I would strongly recommend you either find some money and pay it off OR see if they will work with you to tack on a payment or two at the end of your loan. Do not fool around here. It's wild wild wild west these days in the repo zone and an almost paid off car is a huge boon to a lender...
