Yes. I believe the loaner will contact you with a past due amount, or send you a bill. If this hasn't happened yet, contact the loaner and tell them you want possesion if the car is not being paid for by the buyer. * No. A cosigner has no legal right to a vehicle unless his or her name appears on the title. The cosigner will have to make the payments to keep the vehicle from being reposssesed or have the vehicle refinanced in his or her name with the primary borrower being released from the current agreement, this can only be done if the lender agrees.
