If the lender is "trying" to repossess the car now, wont they be "trying" to repo the car then also? How long do you plan on driving the car for free?? Just keep on hiding the car until you get a chance to pay on it.

thank you roosta-i see that you respond to a lot of posts here. i just wanted to make sure that i wont have the police knocking on my door. I didnt know they could start repo action without notifying you. I am also not driving the car for free. I was garnished and didn't have the money. The garnishment has ended and i can now pay them what i owe on 11/11/04. i just thank god that I am not one of the people whose couldn't pay because they were unemployed. i tried to talk to the people at my finance company but they didnt want to talk so i stop trying to talk to them. i sent faxes to them and text messages to the repo guy who showed up at my job. Don't know if that is legal or not but I am not going to worry about it for now. I pray that I will never have to finance a car again as this has been one of the worst experiences of my life.

How do you repossess my car?

Firstly, is not "your" car ... The lending institution actually "owns" your car and can legally repossess it whenever the monthly payments are not being made as agreed upon when the initial loan was signed by the buyer.The lender is entitled to recover their property by most any means. And is is their right to resell that car to anyone they choose in order to recoup their losses after not being paid by the original buyer.Miss a payment, lose the car ... simple business. After all, they have your signature on a document that states you promise to make monthly payments or face the consequences.

If you made late payments due to medical reasons can that be removed from your credit score?

Fair Credit Reporting Act requires that the creditor report your payment status accurately. That means that if you agreed to pay a certain amount on a certain day, then your account is "paid as agreed". If you miss a payment for any reason other than bank error, the account has not been paid as agreed no matter what the reason for the late payment. If you have medical issues that prevent timely payment, the best arrangement would be to make arrangements with the creditor prior to the conditions of the agreement not being met.

Can the bank repossess a 30K dollar car when less than half is still owed and only 128 dollars is past due?

The bank can legally repossess a car at any time you default on the loan regardless of the vehicles value or the amount past due. If your car payment is due on April 1st and you don't pay than you are legally in default on your contract. If you make a partial payment (less than the amount you agreed to pay in your contract every month) and the bank didnt agree to this arrangement then you are still in default. The best bet would be to pay the $128 before the car is repossessed or to pay the back balance owed if it has already been repossessed.
