You won't be arrested and the police won't come after you it is a civil matter not criminal.

You may be right, you won't be arrested and the police won't come after you but if it's a Felony in California and Florida to hide a vehicle from repossession, how is that a civil matter? Sounds criminal to me but nobody will enforce it.

Does a creditor have to give some kind of notice in Oregon when your car is up for repossession?

No. The contract you signed when you financed the car gave you the terms and conditions which had to be met in order for you to retain your vehicle - that's your notice, right there. Creditors and repossession agents tend not to give notice, largely because debtors have been known to try to hide vehicles or evade repossession by other methods.
