    Lawyers agree

    Answered . You're a bit unclear. Is the company that is suing you the same company who possesses your note to the car? If it's a credit card company suing you for only $1500, then it's likely an unsecured debt which means that your car cannot be repossessed. If, however, you're in default on your auto loan, then yes, the car can be repossessed.

    Answered . They cannot repossess your car. They can get a judgment against you and then try to enforce a judgment which may include forcing the sale of the car. You need to speak to someone who handles BK matters.
