there are PRIMARY liens and SECONDARY liens. Like first come-first served, goes by DATE of lien. READ YOUR CONTRACT. You were NOT as slick as you thot you were.

When a debtor is behind on payments, NC law allows the lender to take possession of, or "repossess" the vehicle. A repo company on behalf of the lender can take the vehicle at anytime, anywhere that the vehicle is found and accessible. If the vehicle is in a locked fence or garage then the repo company cannot force entry to get to the vehicle.

No, it is illegal to impersonate someone else in order to repossess a vehicle or another asset. For example: You can't tell the R/O of the vehicle that you're from the dealership and are going to detail the car on their behalf as part of a customer loyalty reward.

If you are up to date with your repayments then the finance company are unable to repossess your vehicle. If you have defaulted on your payments then they are able to repossess the car, the number of missed repayments which qualifies for repossession will be stipulated on the agreement you signed when you first purchased the vehicle.
