Payments must be paid on time when they are due. One must remember that it is not "your car" until it is fully paid for. Until then the outfit that lent you the money owns the legal title to the car. You are just the registered owner, not the legal owner. The legal owner has all rights to repossess the car anytime the payment is not made on time.

Do you have to pay the whole vehicle off if it is repossessed?

Once a car has been repossessed, you as the owner of the vehicle have the obligation to repay any amount still owed on the loan. Once a car is repossessed, it is often sold in a repossessed cars auction by the finance company. The amount which the car was sold for will be deducted from the total loan amount and then the difference will be owed by yourself. So yes you would have to pay the whole vehicle off if it was repossessed.
