  1. Yes o long as they filed repossession rules

  2. If the dealership sold the truck to you on a contract that provided them with a lien that they could enforce if you failed to make payments, they could repossess the truck if you defaulted. Under the law, they then had to sell the car to the highest bidder and they were permitted to bid and buy it.
