A: It's possible if they need it as evidence in their case. You should talk to a lawyer that may contact the prosecutor to find out why they are holding your vehicle and if it's being held as evidence or for any other reason.
A: If it is being held as evidence, you will likely not be able to get the car back until the case is resolved. If they are planning on forfeiting the vehicle, you should receive notice of such action and, if you receive such notice, you should hire an attorney right away.
