A vehicle is considered a secured debt. Therefore there is no SOL governing the repossession or collection of amount owed. The vehicle legally belongs to the lender/creditor until payment is made in full. * There is an SOL pertaining to when the lender may file a lawsuit to recover any outstanding debt. Vehicle loans are considered written contracts and under NH law the SOL for a written contract is 3 years.
