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.

A repossession is a repossession, no matter if it is voluntary or not. Your credit will be ruined for 7 years.

The legal remedy for vehicle repossession is covered by UCC laws. Regardless of where the lender is located the car can be repossessed under the laws of the state where it was purchased or where it is now located, whichever means is most advantageous to the lender.

You might be able to get a personal loan after a car repossession. However, you would get the loan at a very high interest rate one the repossession is on your credit report.

Possibly, but they can certainly prevent you from interfering, as it is no longer your car, hence the repossession.

The tow/repossession company has to notify the police of the repossession so the car can't be reported stolen..

That is a decision made by the lender, and some do have photographs taken before the car is seized, but it is not a legal requirement. The repossession agent/agency does not assume responsibility for any damage to a vehicle that happens while it is being recovered.

The repossession agent shows up and takes the car if everything goes correctly.

File a lawsuit against you and the sheriff comes out and forces you to give up the car. Do not give it up and you will likely be in jail.

It goes through a legal process, and if you fail to get your vehicle back, it will be auctioned of to help fund the government.
