If the vehicle is towed you can call a sheriff seeing as though they stole your car. He has Legal right to take your car from their lot and return it to you .
Around here its different. They tow you and to get your car back you have to pay the towing charge, and any owing amount.

But who knows you might be right that they are not allowed to legally impound it but most people probably don't know their rights.

Regarding the credit report. You should probably call a credit bureau and ask.

I know that you can bad credit if you don't pay your bank loans, mortgage, credit cards, etc. However if you pay your cell phone bill late, they don't report to the credit bureaus.

So for a stupid situation like yours I would call a credit agency and ask to be sure.
