It is illegal ALL day long and in EVERY state to do so. DONT DO IT. "EVERY" state includes CA and FL.

If your auto is "repoed" then in most states the agent has to report to the local authorities. When this is done they have a record that it is in the agents' or lenders' possession. if you still have keys and take it, it is auto theft.

It is only illegal if you get caught trespassing something repo man do everyday.It is not auto theft!!!it is your car !!!Having said that don't do it!!!!It is not worth it!!

Yes, when they auction it you will get back money if there is any left after the banks recovery expenses and the money you owe them. That is assuming the car is worth more than what you owe.

To get your repossessed car back you may need proof of residency, insurance, and, other personal information to retrieve your repossessed vehicle back to you.

It means the bank, or whoever loaned you the money for the car, will send people out to take it back.

Contact the lender who repossessed the car. You will have to make up all back payments and pay all fees associated with the actual repossession.
