"One" would then be guilty of Grand Larceny.

Roosta is wrong.

If you can retrieve the vehicle, go ahead. No court order, no law broken. You are the registered owner and have the legal rights over a repo guy.

That is what I thought Repo is actually Illeagal, this is why they do it at 2 am..... And when you call to find out where your car is they wont tell you until you pay. Even then it is like this big lockdown place where you cant see anyone. Amazing this crap is able to go on.

He is NOT wrong. There are many states where a court order is not needed. And in every state entering locked private property is considered criminal trespass. The repossession of a vehicle is not illegal when the laws of the state are followed. In many instances there is a clause in the lending contract that outlines the actions that can and will be taken if the borrower defaults. The best way to settle these disputed opinions is to consult the state repossession laws/statutes, where the person lives.
