Any activity that results in the recovery of the wanted vehicle is legal, provided the peace is maintained and there is a perfected lien-holder, and that lien-holder has issued a legal order for repossession.

There are minor specifics for each state, and some for specific metropolitan areas. These make it difficult to give a succinct answer for such a broad question.

The above is correct, but it doesn't solve your problem.

If you bought it at a "buy here, pay here" lot, TALK TO the people - YOU owe the money and you owe them because they handed over THEIR PROPERTY to you BECAUSE you agreed to pay x amount of dollars on some set schedule. What they DON'T want is to be cold-shouldered by YOU, the person who has THEIR property and who is USING their

property without upholding your portion of the agreement.
