With that being said with that in the actual. Contract should I be able to do that with out possible repossession?

Dear Natalie,

Call the title loan company and keep them in the loop about what is going on. Ultimately they don’t want your car, they want the payment.

If you can make a friend there, come up with a mutually agreeable plan on how to deal with the past due payment and meet that plan, I think it will work out.

If you don’t communicate, leave them in the dark and don’t make the payment as you agree to then the odds are more likely the car will be taken.

Call them.
