what does WHO do after the lessee "hides" the car?? Me?? IF I'm looking for the "hidden" car, I ask the lessee where they hid it. If they say it was "stolen" I ride them to the local PD and help them file a STOLEN report. If you need more help, email me.

First of all it would not be possible to be on the title of a leased vehicle, as the leasor retains ownership rights. A cosigner is only responsible for the debt if the primary borrower defaults on the lending agreement.

Defaulting on a personal loan can effect your credit in a negative way. The lower your credit rating, the harder it is to get a loan in the future. Loan default is a civil matter, not criminal, so there is no need to worry about any jail time being served because of it. If you take out a personal loan to purchase a car and then default on the payments, the bank can take the car from you. Which will then leave a repossession on your credit report.

No, there is no such a thing as a debtor's prison.

Not really. There is no residual value assigned to the leasee, so there is nothing to foreclose on. At the end of the lease you have nothing.

This is called defaulting on a loan. You will pay in the end. You will pay the difference in what they sell the car for and what you owe on the vehicle. And believe me they don't care what they sell the car for. Why should they as they know you are going to pay the difference. Your credit will also be ruined for 7 years. Are you beginning to see just how dumb it is to tell them to pick up the car and default on the loan. Another word for this is repossession. Get the car back and make the payments, or at the very least talk to the lender and explain your situation. They can restructure the loan so you can afford the payments. You do not want to allow the car to be reposed.
