No, the primary borrower would need to refinance the vehicle in their name only or with a different co-signer. Person's who agree to being a co-signer usually do so with good intentions of helping out family members or friends. Unfortunately it often turns out badly with the co-signer getting "stuck" with the debt and problems with their personal credit.

Buy cobuyer I wonder if you mean cosigner on a loan. If this is the case then the answer is no. As a cosigner you are simply agreeing to pay the loan if the person who took it out does not. It is in his or her name and you are responsible for it if they do not pay it.

What rights does a cosigner have to gain possession of the vehicle if his name is on the title in Pennsylvania?

It depends on what the title says. The title can say "The owner of the vehicle is Name 1 or Name 2." If the title says this then the cosigner has limited rights to get the car. Whoever has the vehicle can sell the car without the cosigners signature. Now if the cosigner has the car, the cosigner can sell the car without the main owners signature. If the title states Name 1 and Name 2, then you have same rights as the main owner of the car. This means if Name 1 trys to sell it, they can't sell it without your signature.

Easy, you can check your own credit report OR go to a registries office and do a quick search. A simpler method is to ask the person that is the primary borrower/buyer or call the lender. Either a cosigner or co-buyer can be listed on the title depending upon the agreement made by the persons involved.
