IF the dealer is acting as the banks agent(hired to repo), YES.IF you bought the car from that dealer, the dealer may have had "recourse" on the loan, so that he/she had to do the dirty work if you didnt pay. $124.00 is not the main question, how LONG has the $124.00 been in default??

If you can not meet payment on a car can you take it back to the dealer?

Returning the vehicle will not relieve you of the responsibility for the debt. Typically your lienholder will sell the vehicle and charge you for the deficiency balance. However, if you cannot pay for the car the lienholder will repossess it and follow the same procedure. Also, unless the dealer provided "in house" financing they probably have no further interest in the vehicle. You are now obligated to pay the bank or finance company. In this case the dealer may not allow you to return it to the lot.

Can a lien on car you perchused full in cash but dealer has a lien on the car still be reposessed?

If you purchased the car in full with cash then there shouldn't be a lien.

A lien is where you are making payments for a vehicle and the vehicle is being used a collateral until the vehicle is paid off.

What amount of time must a dealer give you before they repossess your vehicle because you heard it was 90 days?

If the dealer accepts partial payment can they still repossess your car?

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 dealer repossess vehicle and collect from the signer and cosigner twice?

No. They can only collect the total owed them once. They can repossess your vehicle, sell it for next to nothing, and collect the remainder from you and the co-signer, part from each, or all from one or the other, but not all from both. (If they're smart, they'll just go straight to the co-signer, since the co-signer is presumably creditworthy, and will pay up without much argument. Of course, then you have Dad to deal with!!)

What do you do if the dealer took my car back for no reason and wont ive me back my Dow paymenT?

A dealer cannot just "take your car back" which is quite simply, "REPOSSESSING THE VEHICLE" for no reason. There would have to be some kind of violation of the terms of sale/payment for them to repossess it, & they would still have to file some kind of legal action or go to a COURT and obtain approval and paperwork authorizing them to repossess the vehicle. If this had been the case, you would have been served notice that you had to appear in court to admit/dispute the dealer's claim, and would have been given the opportunity at that time to work out an agreement with the dealer over the dispute, & the court would have sanctioned either the agreement between you & the dealer, or ruled in favor of you or the dealer. Any way that the court ruled would have been entered as a court ordered judgment and entered in the court records and both parties to that action would have been given a written copy of the ruling. If none of this occurred, and the dealer cannot show written proof that he obtained the legal right to repossess your car, quite simply, the dealer has STOLEN your car. If that is the case, call your local Police Department and file a stolen car report, and give them all the information as to where the vehicle was taken from and if you have spoken to the dealer and know for a fact that they have the car (as in they admitted to you that they took the car) and the car's location.

How long does dealer have to keep insurance on vehicles after bought?

a dealer should have a bond. The coverage on the vehicle is like having a liability policy. If the dealer was driving the car and had an at fault accident, he will have to pay for repairs on his vehicle and the bond will cover the other persons car. Once you buy a car from a dealer, you are responsible for purchasing insurance for the vehicle, the dealer is no longer liable. In fact, the dealer should require that you have insurance before you drive the vehicle off the lot.
