Does the creditor have a security agreement listing collateral? If not, no collateral. If creditor has reduced debt to judgment, then execution on your property or garnishment of your wages or bank accounts may occur. Notice of Exempt Property at least should be filed.

Absolutely go to Court. Otherwise a Default Judgment will go down. Have proof that you paid the first month. Possibly agree to a lesser amount than sued for, but this is doubtful since you already agreed to it.

Your breach of contract action is apparently against the dealer, not the warranty carrier. You will need to hire an attorney to pursue a remedy. All possible documentary evidence will be needed, including possible advertisements.TN consumer protection act might be involved also.
