Repossessed cars may be purchased from many car dealerships some specialize in repossessed vehicles and others may have the occasional defaulted payment.

Get a hold of the lien holder then get a hold of the owner who has the lien against them. Otherwise you may end up responsible if you desire to keep the vehicle.

Can you sell your car if it is being repossessed?

Depends on the specific laws of where you live. In general, if the car you bought is being repossessed because you cannot pay for it any more, consider selling it to someone who can. You basically sell the car at a really low price, practically just below the amount the you already spent on it. The person who bought the car from you, then would have to continue paying for the remaining balance to the dealer from where you bought the car. This way, you're credit won't go bad.

What are your rights when it comes to a car that just has a payment for half of the remainder owed and the private party it was being bought from has repossessed it for personal reason?

If the repossession occurred in a state that does not permit self-help repossession, report the car stolen; it cannot be legally repossessed. Louisiana and Wisconsin are two of these states. If you can show legal possession of the vehicle, and on time payment, report the car stolen. It cannot be legally repossessed in any state unless the debt is delinquent. If you do not wish to involve LEO's immediately, contact the private party who "repossessed" the vehicle and explain that if it is not returned within a reasonable amount of time, that you will report the vehicle stolen and give his name as the party responsible. There is no legal "personal reason" for repossessing a vehicle.
