Hello, and welcome. I am a licensed attorney and happy to assist.
I'm sorry to hear of this unfortunate and frustrating situation, but happy to say that you may have recourse. Under the circumstances, it sounds like the judge decided you have to pay more based on his lack of recollection of what occurred at the first hearing in which you said you wanted your car back. You can still refresh his memory and get him to change his mind by ordering a copy of the original hearing transcript, presuming there was a court reporter present. You can then file a motion for reconsideration attaching the transcript to the motion as an exhibit. As long as you do this within 10 days of entry of the order at issue, the judge will likely change his ruling.
You can find instructions for obtaining court transcripts on your county court website. Be sure to submit your request as a rush order so you can get everything filed in time.
