A: You should not have it towed to a WalMart first. Instead, have the car examined by a mechanic of your choice first and if that mechanic believes an error with the oil change caused the issue, get that opinion in writing. Then, have the car towed to WalMart for inspection and provide WalMart with a copy of the opinion.
You generally have to pay for all repairs and consequential damages like a car rental, hotel, etcetera and then seek reimbursement from the at fault party. There is no way to quickly force them to cover those expenses for you. You also have a duty to mitigate your damages, in other words don't wait in a hotel in Virginia for a week and then have the car towed. You take

A: A lawyer needs to see the car loan agreement in order to accurately answer your question. In general, the lender is not required to give you advance notice of a repossession. Repossession from a public area is not illegal. Repossession on a Saturday is not illegal. Most likely, if you were late on the payment under the terms of the loan, what they did is allowed and you will not only have to bring the loan current but you will also have to pay all late fees, repossession fees and storage fees in order to get the car back. You may have claims against the repo agent if they damaged the car in the process.
