Yes, but the cosigner can only sue for the actual amount that was paid to prevent the loan from going into default. They might even request the title be signed over.

And if the primary borrower claims bankrutpcy, the cosigner will still get "stuck" with the debt. The credit report of the cosigner will be equally affected, either in a positive or negative way, depending upon the circumstances.

YES !!! He/she should certainly discuss it with the cosigner. It may be a gift or it may just be that the cosigner doesn't want to have that note appearing on his/her credit report. Whatever the reason, even if the cosigner did it as a gift, the primary should acknowledge and express appreciation. But be prepared if the cosigner expects the loan to be paid back.

The usual legal recourse for the cosigner when the person named as the primary on a loan has defaulted, is to make the payments on the loan.

If the loan was for a car, some states allow the cosigner to take possession of the car and sell it to recoup losses also.
