I believe whoever has the title or if the title is still in your name, then yes you may take the car back. You may want to ask for sheriff back-up if there are any problems. Or just key the ignition and take-off, if you can. Some state laws may differ.

What is the right to cure law?

check it out! There are different laws in different states. The ones I am familiar with send the right to cure letter the first time the payment is 45 days late. It states that you may continue the contract if you make up the delinquent payments within 20 days. If you do not make these payments, the car can be repossessed on the 21st day. If you do make the payments and reinstate the contract, the car may be repossessed anytime you are in default - and that means even one day late - without giving you any additional notice.

Read that letter carefully. The one that I am most familiar with clearly states that you have 20 days to make any past due payments and if they are paid you may continue with the original contract, BUT if you become delinquent again, they may exercise their rights without giving you any additional notice. That means from now on you had better not miss any payments, not even by one day, or your car could be repossessed.

Can your car be repossessed if there is not a lien on your car you were not behind on your payments?

If you have no lien on your vehicle then no one has a legal right to repossess it. If you're not behind on the payments there would be no reason for the lender to reprocess the car in the first place. It is hard to believe you have a loan on a car without a lien. The car stands behind the loan. If there's no lien on the vehicle then the car is not involved in the loan and cannot be repossessed.

What to do if people missed sixteen days on a payment of a truck that they took payments over from a family member and then they repossess it without motifying you?

Well, a vehicle can be repossessed with no notification, so there's not much you can do about that. If the payments were taken over by family members, it's assumed the first family member was aware someone else would be paying for the truck and so is still responsible to see that the payments are made.
