Yes. They repo and sell it for next to nothing. They sue in court and get a jugement that they use to put a lien on your house. Next time buy a cheap car just to get you there and back.

No, if you own the car outright and there is no lien against it, no one can repo the car under normal circumstances. The only reason I could think of would be if you owed the bank money and they sued you, and the court made you put the car up as collateral.

What does is mean to have a lien on ones property and tenets?

A lien is a security interest in the property. A lien might arise from a loan. If you buy a car with the bank's money the bank will put a lien on the car. If you don't pay the bank back, it can foreclose on its lien and take the car from you. If you have a roofer add a new roof to your house, and you don't pay him, the laws allow the roofer to put a lien on your house. The roofer now has a stake in the house. If you don't pay off the lien your house can be forcibly put up for sale in order to satisfy the lien. I believe "property and tenets" translates into modern speak as "property and belongings".
