Good morning. Can you please share with me a little more about the situation? I understand you are close to two months past due but no really clear about the other language

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have a car loan with a dealer and I didn't pay the tag fee for $ 200 due in March 31st and the regular payment in may for $480, and yesterday I receive 58 days past due notice, what does it means exactly ?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It means I have 58 days to pay or I closed to 58 days past due and I am at risk for collection or repossession ?
Expert:  LegalKnowledge replied 1 year ago.

Thank you. The money owed to the dealer, as part of the car loan, needs to be paid. If you did not pay what was owed, then the balance is past due and needs to be paid ASAP. It does NOT mean you have 58 days to pay and it DOES mean that if you do not pay it, that it will be sent to collections and the vehicle would be at risk for repossession. With that being said, you want to make payment immediately, to avoid any problems.

I offer yesterday to paid the half balance right now and the due balance at the end of june in order to continue to pay the rent june payment and the past due, but they refuse and want everything or nothing, according to the law are they able to make a repossession process and when ?
Expert:  LegalKnowledge replied 1 year ago.

Yes, they can, if money is due and owed on the car. While you are certainly acting in good faith and trying to work this out with them, they do not have to accept anything less then what is owed and do not have to agree on a payment plan. They could repossess the car if payments are past due. Generally, your creditor has legal authority to seize your car as soon as you default on your loan. Once you are in default, your creditor may repossess your car at any time without prior notice and may come onto your property to do so.
