  • It will take more than 1 payment but 2 or 3 and it could be repossed.

  • Yes they can. Before you miss the payment call and see if you can work something out

  • call your bank and let them know your sitsuation they may be able to help you but if you miss the second payment then yes they will take your car the sooner you talk to them the better.

  • I doubt they would take it for missing one payment, but all banks are different. Call them and explain your situation to them.

  • You can call the bank that owns your car title and ask to tack this months payment to the end of your loan. The bank can take your car after missing just one payment in TX! Check your state laws.

  • can they? yes..but normally won't for one missed payment. Call them to let them know what is going on, a lot of the time they would rather work it out with you than take it.

  • I think it has to be 90 days late before they attempt to repossess it, they will give u plenty of notice tho

  • It depends on the bank but some banks will repo if youre late a week. So yes they can.

  • You can contact them and work something out my ex call them and got an extension for 90 days they told him that they are going just to move the payment dates so it would seem that instead of paying in 18 months he is going to pay in 24. I think that for them is more expenses if they repoed and then try to sell it, than work whith you in a payment plan

  • If you know you can't make the payment you should call the bank before the due date and tell them. I would also let them know your situation and see if they can work with you on the payments.
