Can a bank repossess your car for being 2 weeks late with a payment?

Read your contract. It likely says the lender can repo anytime you are in DEFAULT. Two weeks late is unusual, but they could repo when you are 1 day late.

If you aren't paying in full they can repossess the car. To a bank " some sort of a payment " doesn't count. Call them and make arrangements.

Once the loan is in default the bank has the right to refuse payment and repossess the vehicle.

A bank can repossess a car at any time the loan has defaulted. Many times a bank will wait until a payment is 2 to 3 months behind before repossession.

Unless it's explicitly stated in the fine print that they can't do any such thing, they have a right to repossess the moment the payment is rendered late, if they so wish. However, if you have documentation from the bank showing them explicitly giving you a deadline date, and they come to repossess before then, you may have grounds for a lawsuit. However, you would need to find out if it was the bank which had your car repossessed on that particular day, or if it was the repossessors jumping the gun and going forth with it before the date which they were specified to take possession of the vehicle.

YES, IF YOU CLAIM NOT TO KNOW WHERE IT IS. If you call the bank and say I dont know where the car is its gone, they are going to tell you to report it stolen. If you stop making payments on it then they will repossess, if there is no car to repossess then you are still responsible to pay the monthly payment car or no car If you stop paying and there is no car to repossess then they at that point can take legal action against you. I dont know if its reported stolen but take my word for it you will pay somehow.
