I was dating a man who bought me a car insisting that he do so so I could be in a better safer vehicle. I put down the $5,000 down payment toward the loan that was taken out in both of our names though he insisted it was solely mine. He then proposed three months later then he cheated on me then broke up with me. He is stating now that I owe the rest of the car. He stated it was a gift, the salesman stated "Wow, this is a hell of a nice gift" and he never had a key to it nor did he ever drive it by himself. He drove it with me a total 8 times during a year and a half. Isn't he obligated to pay the rest since it was a gift?
I want to make sure that I understand your facts. Your ex-boyfriend wanted to buy you a car, but you had to put down the $5,000 downpayment, and your name also appears on the loan? Depending upon how the vehicle is titled, you and your ex bought a car. If the loan is taken out in both of your names, then you would be responsible for the payment, as would he. Good luck.
