Co signer does not have the right of subrogation. ( the power to recoup the losses). His agreement is only with the lender who will demand payment in case the principal borrower fails to pay. He has to honour the agreement. If he pays to the lender, he can have a legal remedy through court and can repossess the vehicle only if the court orders so. ( This is on an assumption that there is no agreement entered into between the principal borrower and the cosigner. Even if there is an agreement it can be enforced through a court only.)
