In my experience, a lease and a loan repossession are the same - I had a voluntary repo where I brought the car back to them with keys, and just got a car with loan repossessed and they do the same process with both, and yes, you are responsible for paying any unpaid amounts. In my situation they were both sold at auction and I was responsible for the outstanding balances to pay off. I didn't see any difference in leasing or with loan to own.

i am leasing a vehicle and today is the last day of my contract and i am over the mileage and the dealership charges 15 cents a mile after calculating it ends up being more than what the car is worth what should i do if i cant refinance it

Can a paid off car be seized for debt?

In some cases yes. If the vehicle was purchased using the same lender against whom you have defaulted with a different loan, and there is a remaining balance after the repossession of that property, then the court can order a Conversion of Collateral, and the paid off vehicle can be repossessed by that lender. Additionally, if the court chooses, real property can be ordered liquidated to pay a bad debt.

You have 2 cars financed with same company you are giving 1 back can the finance company repo the other as long as you pay for it?

No, as long as you make the payments and do not default on the loan agreement on that vehicle they cannot take it. You will however be required to pay the deficiency on the loan of the car you are voluntary turning in. They will sell the car and you will pay the difference in what it sells for and the balance on the loan plus any fees associated with the repossession. Your credit will also be ruined for 7 years.
