If you think your vehicle may be repossessed, take these steps:  

  • Remove all purchase and loan documents from the vehicle.
  • Remove all personal belongings from the vehicle.
  • Note the current odometer mileage.
  • Take photographs of the vehicle's interior and exterior. 
  • Request that the lender provide you with a written loan payment history.
  • Request that the lender provide you with a payoff figure.
  • Do not hide or conceal the vehicle to avoid a repossession.
