it wouldn't be reported as a "stolen" vehicle unless they signed an agreement stating when they would return it. At most, it would be unauthorized use of a motor vehicle. Best thing to do would be to send a certified, return receipt, restricted delivery letter to the person stating they have so many days to return it or it will be considered stolen. Also put in the letter that acceptance of the letter constitutes their agreement. Yes you can report your car stolen but only if you said return it by a certain time. If you failed to give a time period, then you cannot report it as stolen.

What happens if you dont return a vehicle under repo?

If you don't return a vehicle after it's put in repo status, it goes on your credit report as "Vehicle cannot be located." Once this is on your credit report, it's impossible to get refinancing for a new vehicle. The best thing to do after that is to file for a bankruptcy. The auto credit company will usually hire a investigator and they can file a lawsuit. But there is typically no criminal charges because, it's technically your vehicle.

You let your son use your car now you want it back what do you do if he wont give it back?

If your son is refusing to return your vehicle and it's registered in your name, you rson is committing grand theft. You'll need to contact the police and report the vehicle stolen. Be warned, though, if they find the vehicle, they'll probably arrest your son. The owner cannot report the vehicle as stolen since he or she is aware of who has possession of said vehicle. If the person refuses to voluntarily return the vehicle, the owner can request the assistance of the police department that has jurisdiction where the vehicle is located. The owner must appear at the police department with proper identification and the vehicle title and registration as proof of ownership, before authorities will render assistance. In a few cases the owner may need to obtain a court order to retrive the vehicle. Such action depends upon where said vehicle is being kept, such as a locked facility.
