Is this normal?  2 weeks ago they took my car.  I tried to rationalize with them as the car was only $100 past due for only 20 days, but they were complete jerks and wouldn't budge.  They said that unless I paid it off completely about $2000, I couldn't get the car back. 

I picked up my things from the tow place and never looked back.  Today, I get a call from them saying that they want to speak with me about giving it back.  I feel like they have something up their sleeve.  Anyone have this happen to them before?

Thanks.  My friends think I'm insane for actually enjoying public transportation.

That sounds funny to me. If you do talk to them get everything in writing so you know what is going on

No, but they may have discovered that it is not worth anything to them and if you take it back, they can get their $2000 from you.

Tell them to have the title ready to sign over or to kiss your butt.

At least see what they have to say. Think about how much you already spent on the car. You only owe $2000.

Good luck

I feel like something is going on.  I'm sure they are not doing this to be the nice guys.  Either they think they can't get what I owed on it or something along those lines. My friend even thinks that they can get in trouble for picking it up for being less then 30 days past due but I doubt it.  From what I have read, it's not illegal but pretty darn shady and despicable if you ask me.

They will lose money if they resale it. They make more by giving it back.
