More details to this question:
I went 3 months without making a payment on my car because my card got cancelled. I did forget that I needed to switch the payment information over, but the financing company never called, didn't send any statements nothing until I physically called to figure out what was going on. Basically its years later and when I'm trying to trade this car in, I cant because they have it on my credit report that the car has been out for repossession for 2 years! I called the company and they are being rude and will not work with me. Although I'm all caught up on payments and have paid every month since that first initial payments missed. Just wondering what actions I can take against a car financing company who is doing shifty business tactics, and every time you call you get a different answer on what happened.

Why not submit a written dispute to that item as shown on your credit report?  The credit reporting company will submit the dispute to the lender and ask that the notation be verified.  If it cannot be verified or if the lender doesn't respond to the dispute, the item will probably be removed from your credit report. 

I recommend that you seek out a local attorney for a more in depth discussion of the matter. I do not recommend that you take any action steps without such a consult. Act quickly because by waiting, you may lose certain rights and remedies available to you.
