If the dealership holds the title (Buy Here, Pay Here) then yes. If the bank you financed it with already has the title and you have your tags, then no. The dealership can, however, place a judgment on you for the amount of the down payment.
Yes, you made a financial pbligation by signing the documents for the sale of this car. So, they can legally repossess that vehicle.
You will need to pay a down payment when you get a car at a new dealership.
If you have not fully paid for the car, it is not yours. The loan papers allow you to use the car until it is paid for; without the agreement you have nothing.
A check given to the dealership will be cashed. This is normal in business. Whether they can keep the money or have to return it is based on what your purchase agreement reads. Where I live if the purchase agreement has "Subject to financing" on it the down payment must be returned if the dealer can not get you financing and you can't get outside financing. If it does not have that in it they get to keep the money.

Mike, READ the contract you signed agreeing to do certain things in exchange for a car. What does it say about if you are in DEFAULT? If you dont perform any one of the conditions of your loan, they you are in default and can be repoed.
