"hiding" or 'hindering" the recovery of property subject to a lien is against the law in all states.Some states, its a felony, some a misdemeanor. Dont do it and you have NO worries.

No, the lender can not have you put in jail because they have a lien on you car. They can press charges against you in many states if your vehicle is up for repossession and you attempt to hide it or hinder the agency hired to secure it from recovering your car. Or, if the lender secures a replevin and you still refuse to turn over the vehicle, you will go to jail then for contempt of court.

Its really a moot point because you are NOT hiding a car from the repoman. YOU wouldn't do that. And the lowly repoman CANT file the charges anyway. S/he doesnt have that authority to act on behalf of the lender. The lender wouldn't waste anymore money on the clunky car you alledgedly are hiding.
