Your contract may outline certain conditions that could still result in reposession, even if you're not late on your payments. For instance, the bank may require insurance coverage be maintained on the vehicle. Failure to do so could result in reposession. Read the fine print of your contract. If you can't find anything that helps you, contact a consumer rights attorney or bankruptcy attorney for a consult. They will most likely tell you the basics of what you need to know in your state for free.
