What to do if we have a vehicle that was discharged through our bankruptcy that we are making voluntary payments on but we can no longer pay?

We can no longer make the payments. A reaffirmation agreement was never filed. The bankruptcy was already discharged. It is not being reported by any of the 3 credit bureaus at this time. If we surrender the vehicle will it then be reported? How long until it would appear?

Yes, in all liklihood, the surrender will be reported, virtually simultaneously with the day of the surrender.  Any chance of selling the vehicle for the pay-off amount?  Just a suggestion.
