Well, the right way to do it would be to take the friend to court and sue him for the money. The underhanded sneaky thing would be to report the car stolen, as the title is not in his/her name.

I bought a car in October and put the title under the name of a friend but we are no longer friends and I want the car back do i have any rights to get it back?

You signed away those "rights" when the title was assigned into the name of the former friend. The only way to revert things back on the title, is for the former friend to "sign off" as owner and for you to "sign on" as buyer - then take the ownership document to your local Motor Vehicle office and have the title legally changed to your name.

If you never registered your vehicle in your name but you did get the title in your name is the car legally yours?

Yes, if it is paid for. If it is not paid for it is legally owned by the lien holder(s) whose name appears on the title. The vehicle title always designates ownership.

Absolutely, if the friend has not paid the payments that were agreed upon in the contract you can absolutely go and reposess the car, just before you do, ask yourself how good of a friend this is, maybe they are going through a hard time a need a little break from you, if you want the car back worse than you want your friend, then by all means, go and get it, might want to go to the local police office and get a police officer to go with you just in case there is a problem.

If you sell a friend a car and he defaults on the loan can you take the car back if the title is still in your name?

Was there a written contract between you and your friend that listed repossession as a cure for non payment? I would consider contacting an attorney on this one.
