Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If she is not paying for the car and is not returning the car, then you need to file a complaint in court called a "Petition for Replevin" and ask the court to order her to return the car based on you taking the loan and it being on your insurance. Based on those issues, the court would be able to order the car returned to you or order her to take a loan to put the car under her name. This is the only other recourse you have.
