Auto Loans and Financing

Can you report a car you co-signed for as stolen if the borrower has it and is hiding it so it does not get repossessed?

WAS it stolen from YOUR possession? IS your name on the TITLE as co-owner? If you are NOT on the title, it cant be stolen from you or the lender. Best thing you can do is help the repo company find where it is hidden. Most states have laws prohibiting "Hindering a Secured Creditor". Check the g/f house, the gramma house,the coke dealers house and the "best" friends house. Cars dont just fall off the face of the earth.

Can you report it stolen if your name is on the title but the other co-signer on title has possession of it and will not give a physical address of where the vehicle is and has left the state and is trying to hide the car from repossession. You have no addresses or phone numbers to reach the party in possession of the vehicle and friends and family of that party will not give you any information. What can you do in that case?


i have the same problem as the statement above me^^^^ the credit people will not give me any information about the owner of the car i co signed for, and do not know what to even call it -that kind of case- to get a lawyer. the girl is still in the state, but i have no information at all.. and she's 3 payments behind for 2 years, i want to surrender the car, and do not know if i can sue her for the collateral bill afterwards just to be compensated for the destruction of my credit. you may need to reread this a few times, its one big problem, and then an option for a solution in question. please thank you

Sometimes its easy and sometimes not. Dont go out of your way to do it. It will get found.

If it's repossessed, it's repossessed... there's nothing to report. As long as there's a lien on that vehicle, the lienholder is the rightful owner of it, and can reclaim their property.

If you aren't hiding it and they didn't repossess it then it has been stolen. Call the police and report that your truck has been stolen.

They stay on your report until the loans are paid off.
