I'm not understanding all of this. If you had a contract then that contract should be honored even if a new company took over. What might have happened is that the new company bought the old one and all its assets inluding the car you were driving. Because the title was still in the old comp name the new comp transfered it to their name and has decided not to honor the contract.
You best resolution is to bring both the old company and new company to small claims court and let the court handle it.
I think these rent to own deals are ripping off predominately less fortunate people and I have little patience for rip off artists. That said, small claims does not require a lawyer so you can afford to do that on your own (just like Judge Judy if you ever watched).
Now, you will not be entitled to get everything back because you did in fact enjoy the vehicle and drive it for however many months for which you will have to pay a fair market value lease rate for that - not the inflated rent to own rate however.
If you would like to discuss further over a free phone consult, feel free to contact me anytime that is convenient.
