NO. IF the co-signor is also listed on the TITLE as co-owner, they can take possession. If not listed on the title they would need to bring a civil suit and bring enough evidence to convince the court to render a judgment transferring the title to the co-signer. Crucial evidence would be proof the co-singer paid the loan.

Seems pointless to even consider. If the primary signer didn't have enough funds to make the car payments, they probably will not have enough funds to pay any lawsuit you charge them with. Fact is, if the primary signer defaulted on payments, then the cosigner would be responsible for making them - If repossession occured, then it was due to the fault of the cosigner .. can't sue yourself.
