Same as a regular repo.

The creditor may still put the repossession on your credit report and it would stay there for up to seven years. Notice the word "may", because it is at the creditor's discretion...

What if the co-buyer says they are not going to make any more payments and the vehicle breaks down and need repair?

If the cobuyer is in possession of the vehicle in this scenario, then eventually the lender will put it out for repossession. Once located, the repo agent will secure the vehicle or will have it assessed for the lender to determine if they want it or not, if it is worth repossessing. Either way, if you are the primary on the account, it will negatively affect your credit. It might be better for you to contact the lender and divulge the location of the unit. As a signer on the loan, you have the right to sign a voluntary repossession and surrender the vehicle. In light of the irresponsible behavior of the cosigner, it is the right thing to do.

You can't just "return" a car. You can surrender it to the lienholder. This is called a voluntary repossession, and yes, it will affect your credit ... it's still a repossession, even though it was voluntary.What you could do without negatively affecting your credit is sell it or trade it in.

How will voluntary repossession of my home in Texas affect my credit?

The effect on your credit will depend on how the lender chooses to report it to the credit bureau. Sometimes a lender will be willing to report it 'paid as agreed' or 'settled' entry on the credit report rather than an actual repossession. If it is reported as an actual repossession or foreclosure it will be on your credit for seven years and negatively effect your rating.
