Can you sue your sibling for nonpayments on a car?

yes, you can.

If you own two cars and are able to make payments on only one and are letting one get repossessed can the finance company for the repossessed car do anything toward the remaining car?

Possibly yes. They can resale your repossessed car dirt cheap and sue you for the difference in what you owed and what they got for it. Then they can sue you to collect that difference. If they win the suit they can have the sheriff pick up anything you own to sell at public auction to help pay that money they supposedly "lost". It's possible but not real likely. It depends on the mob that runs the finance Company

What can you do if you have a clear title and your car gets repossessed?

If you have a clear title, you car can't be repossessed. Either the title isn't clear or the leinholder believes monies are still owed on the car. If the title is clear, show it to the company authorizing the repossession. If you truly had clear title and there were no leins or other encumberances and a judge didn't declare that the car was to be sold to satisfy OTHER debts, you can sue for damages. If you didn't owe money to the people who had the car repossessed, you should be able to sue them for LOTSA BUCKS, and you definitely should.

My girlfriend canceled my insurance and called the car lot My car was repossessed to get the car back they want to be paid off in full what are my legal rights do I have any options?

If you owed money on the car (which is probably why it was repossessed), you need to pay what they demand. Check the paper you signed when buying the car if you think they are 'demanding' something different than you signed. Your girlfriend was smart to cancel the insurance, since a repossessed car does not need insurance. You cannot sue your girlfriend for calling the car lot, or for cancelling the insurance, because you cannot show DAMAGES to yourself.

Not at that stage of the process. Once the car is repossessed, it will be sold at auction for whatever amount it goes for. Usually very little. Then the creditor will apply that amount less fees (usually exhorbitant) to the amount owed and sue you for the balance. If the creditor gets a judgment for the difference, then it can levy upon your IRA.
