Your car was probably repossessed by the lender who owns the car until you pay for it. Call your lender and they will be able to tell you how to locate your repossessed car.

No, but your car can be repossessed if you don't make the payments.

Repossessed cars may be purchased from many car dealerships some specialize in repossessed vehicles and others may have the occasional defaulted payment. Another great place to find repossessed cars is with a financial institution, there are many people struggling, taking credit, the car is often the first thing repossessed when the loan is called in.

Sure you can hide the car. But in doing so, you are just running up the cost of the repossession which you will eventually pay. So, is it wise to hide the car that you do not own? Or would it be much better to talk to the lender and try and work something out even if you have to voluntarily have the car repossessed, thus saving yourself the repossession fees.

It depends on which state you live in really. I lived in Louisiana and my car was in my mothers name she decided not to pay and it was repossessed well 11 years later they contacted me again and requested the money for the car. But that was in 1994.

If you still owe money, it may be repossessed at any time.

I assume you mean from a repo man. It is illegal to hide a car to prevent repossession. In some states criminal charges can be filed against you. In the end they will get the car. The lender does not want to repo the car anymore than you want it repossessed. Both you and the lender loose.Even if you hide the car eventually they will find it. Don't be foolish and try to hide it. Just set down with them and see if you can work out a deal? If not, then just turn the car over to them. This will save you the repossession fees which you are obligated to pay.

No. Your car gets repossessed, it's on you. You don't get to pass that on to someone else.

I have a welding machine on the truck they repossessed can they keep that?

Not unless you have paid for the car. The car belongs to the lender and not you. I am surprised they have not taken you to court over this. They will eventually for sure.
