Thanks for all the advice guys
I took it to a dealership - looking to trade it in - I have a pretty sweet offer on the table which includes them giving me a huge break on my potential next car and them taking it off my hands.
They will pay off the balance car and remove the down payment for the next one. I haven't touched the car at all, not even a car wash or interior cleaning. They are fine with it, and I will probably try to take offer soon.
What we're dealing with here is a complete lack of respect for the law.
