Gap Insurance, Warranty Not PMSI

“TRANSFORMATION” RULE AND NEGATIVE EQUITY DISCUSSED; GAP
INSURANCE, SERVICE CONTRACT NOT PART OF COLLATERAL
In re Miller, Case No 08-40935
December 2008, Judge Karlin

Debtor sought, and was permitted, to pay only the cost of the car, rather than cost plus other charges. Court did not rule on whether certain fees not adequately addressed by either side were part of the PMSI. Good discussion of the transformation rule and negative equity.
