File suit in the appropriate state court in the county in which registered owner resides. If a judgment is granted it can be executed as a lien against the vehicle according to the laws of the judgment debtor's state. The lender is the primary lien holder if the vehicle has been used as collateral and a secondary lien can be enforced without the lender's release after the lending agreement has been completed.
