Unfortunately, yes they can repossess your car. They have the right to take it at any point that you do not make a full payment on or before the indicated pay day. The only exception is if you have a written agreement that states you have a grace period.

Otherwise there is nothing you can do about it except pay in full on time every time.

Can a finance company repossess my car if I am only one week behind in car payments?

Typically, yes. Unless you have it in writing that they will change your payment date, or accept a later payment, they can repossess your car for being only a day late on your payment. However, most companies will not repossess this early as it usually ends with them losing money. They make more money by you paying your monthly payments plus interest. In the long run, if they repossess they have to sell the car at wholesale or auction and typically the person whose car was repossessed does not pay the balance due. This whole process takes a lot of time and money. Usually your finance company will avoid repossession until it is a last resort. Buy here pay here places aren't so nice however. In the end, legally speaking, the answer is yes.

Yes. Once the lending agreement is in default the lender may take whatever action they choose in recovering the monies owed.

The lender can accept the payment, still repossess the vehicle or pursue litigation.

Can a car company take payment then repossess?

Basically... probably yes. You should check the terms of your loan contract closely, but most likely it says, prettied up in lawyer-talk, "If you are even one day late with the payment, we can take the car back, sell it, and charge you for the expense of doing so plus the difference between what we sell it for and what you still owe. Also, if we accept a late or partial payment once, it doesn't change the terms of the contract or obligate us to do so again, and we can still repossess the car if you're not current on your payments."

How can your finance company accept your car payment then refuse to finance you?

That's ridiculous. This must be an unrepeatable company or you were taken advantage of. Hopefully, you paid in traceable funds (check or money order). More than likely you had some kind of scrape on your credit or there was a mix up at the dealership, but without a correct loan number they should not of taken your payment. That's very fishy, because of the fact they aren't going to take you money if they haven't even funded the deal yet.
