You could probably take them to court, but be careful. They have better lawyes than you can afford and they'll find a way to go after you. Just be grateful to get your car back if they acknowledge a mistake.

When can vehicle be sold after it has been repossessed?

In most if not all US states, uniform commercial code (UCC; or a state's equivalent) requires (demands) that repossessed vehicle's be sold (in some instances, sold at auction) within a set, statutory period of time, in the absence of performance of which the debt which led to the repossession is deemed to have been satisfied in full and no further collection or action is permitted against the debtor, even if creditor remains in position of substantial loss, and even if debtor is found to have, or comes into position of having, sufficient assets to satisfy the debt. So the practical answer to "when" (but, more succinctly, to "how soon") is, in order to protect creditor's right to take further collection action against debtor, the repossessed vehicle should be sold as quickly as possible within the UCC requirements of the state in which the vehicle is registered. For particulars regarding specific state requirements, contact the vehicle licensing authority in the state in question.
