seize your car for defaulting on the downpayment.... default is default.

What does "default mean default" mean??? Can someone answer the question a little clearer than default means default. If I defaulted on the the down payment then the dealership should cancel the contract, not hold my car.

Okay, I did not have the down payment of 9k when they presented the checks. You are lucky you're not in JAIL, I think... If I default on the car note, I will have a repo on my credit and I do not want to do this. I just would like to have my car back while I am paying on it. I dont see it happening. Unfair? Im afraid I would do the same. I would give you your PP back as that is NOT covered by the contract. keeping it is also against the law. It is called CONVERSION. Also,I came in to buy a used car on their lot but they said I could not get financed for the used car because of my credit. A new one they could finance me for easier. You had a chance to leave without buying a car. The fact that you wrote 9K in hot checks doesnt say much for your honesty OR your willpower. Have you consulted a LOCAL attorney about this matter??

I just want to know where my personal stuff is. Tell the dealership that you want to get your PP. Give them your keys to the car. If that doesnt work, call an attorney, tell them ONLY that you have been repoed and cant get your PP back. Stay away from all the other issues. I am not sure what my rights are.

What state are you in? I suggested you contact an attorney because I am NOT an attorney and an attorney in your state will/should know the laws in that state. I just would like to have some idea of where my car is and who if so, is driving it. You dont need to know where it is or if anyone is driving it. All you can legally demand is your PP. Some state laws say the lender must notify you when/where they will sell the car but none say you have to know where it is stored. They would not be smart to let anyone drive the car until this is all settled. Toooo much liability. I think that is fair????? When thinking about "fair", always turn the problem around and put yourself in the opposite position. It usually looks much different from there.

The DEALERSHIP won't repossess the car, but the lender might if you don't make the monthly payments as scheduled.

They will not repossess a vehicle unless you have defaulted on the loan. Defaulting on the loan is being late with the payments. Call the lender and talk to them.

In most cases a lender will file a notace of default after 3 missed payments.
