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.

REGARDLESS OF WHO YOU OWE TALK TO THEM, DON'T Dodge THEM.
