If you purchased and financed that car through the dealer, and you miss a payment ... YUP ... they can impound (repossess) the car until one brings the loan payments current. You see, when one misses a payment, the perception of the loan company is that the person no longer wants the car - or just wants something for free ... not going to happen in this day and age. The dealer, after a reasonable amount of time waiting for you to pay up, could sell the car again ... and you would then forfeit all monies you paid towards purchase.

Bottom line: pay those car loans on time, every time ... if you have to go out and get a 2nd , 3rd or 4th job - do whatever it takes to keep up with the payments.
