Does a cosigner have to be on the title of a vehicle?

No, cosigners don't have to be on the title. The loan and the ownership of the vehicle are under two completely different agencies.

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.

Im a primary borrower on a loan n i had2 have a cosigner to get my car. i have made several payments on my carnthe cosigner had told me tht he had the car sold hes now got the not makein payments?

Something is not right here. If you are the primary, then why is the cosigner making payments and why does the cosigner have possession of the vehicle? The is back-wards of what it should be. And why in the world would you put the cosigners name on the title? You have a mess on your hands, because you went about this all wrong. You need to contact a lawyer ASAP.

If a car is in your name as the primary but your cosigner has been making payment for the last year and many of those payments have been paid late can you legally take that car from the cosigner?

Since the cosigners isn't paying, unless you start paying instead, and catch up on all late payments, the dealer or the bank will repossess the vehicle shortly anyway, so your question is moot.

Can a bank repossess if the borrower defaults and there is a cosigner on the vehicle?

The cosigner becomes the target next. If you default, it is up to the cosigner to pay the bill or both of your credits are ruined and the bank takes their usual steps to repossess a vehicle.
