Best Answer

The cosigner has the same legal obligations to repay the debt as does the primary borrower. If the primary borrower defaults, the lender can begin proceedings to collect the full amount owed plus applicable fees from the cosigner. A cosigner can be sued just as can the primary borrower. And if the primary borrower claims bankrutpcy, the cosigner will still get "stuck" with the debt. The credit report of the cosigner will be equally affected, either in a positive or negative way, depending upon the circumstances.

I just bought a new car but two days later the dealership called and said i need a cosigner I found one and they have very good credit should my APR and monthly payment go down with a cosigner?

No because you applied for the loan with YOUR credit. For whatever reason (you have the right to find out why) the dealership decided you were too big of a risk to be granted the loan you requested. The purpose of the cosigner is that in case you mess up your cosigner will be responsible for the loan.
