Not if you are on the title to the vehicle and own it. Whoever holds the loan on the vehicle can repossess the car however if you are late with payments. Contact the lender and work something out. You do not want your car repossess. Credit will be ruined for 7 years, and you will still have to pay the repo fees plus the difference in the balance on the note and what the car brings when they sell it.

Question is not worded too clearly - but my belief is that you will have a warrant issued for your arrest for your FTA on the theft charge. When the court finds out about the theft charge it will probably revoke your bond (or the bail bondsman probably will because you are now a poor risk) and you will be remanded to jail.
