When the primary borrower defaults the cosigner becomes legally responsible for the loan. If the cosigner is not able to pay the loan he or she can also be subject to legal action by the lender and the cosigner's credit score will be seriously affected.

What is a cosigner responsible for on a car loan?

The co-signer will be completely responsible for paying the loan if the primary borrower defaults on the payments even though the co-signer will have no ownership interest in the vehicle. A co-signer should always be completely informed about the consequences of co-signing. They are guaranteeing that you will pay. If you miss payments it will affect their credit record. If you default it will also wreck their credit. In short, co-signers are responsible in making sure that the primary borrower is able to make the payments on time, and if not, will be their responsibility to continue and settle the payments if the primary borrower fail to do so.

Is there a way for the cosigner to be removed as cosigner if primary owner defaults?

No. The purpose of requiring a co-signer is that in the case of a default by the primary borrower, the cosigner has agreed to be fully responsible for the loan. Therefore, if the borrower defaults, that's what you're there for if you're the cosigner.
