Fairly simply, a co-owner owns the car, and possibly the way your phrasing it, the primary responsibility for the loan. Hence, the (co)owner will own the car when the loan is paid off. A cosigner is essentially only a guarantor of the loan receivor. He is also responsible for the payment of the loan to the bank. He has no responsibility, and possibly no rights, in the property it is attached to. I would note that it is possible (and more correct but in a sophesticated lender type of way) that the term coowner would mean that the loan is "cowned" by two (or more)lenders. As in Bank 1 and Bank 2 both own 1 loan on a property, having each given funds and each receiving the benefits (payments from the one receiving the loan) of the loan. This rarely occurs on simple finance transactions so I supect this is not what you mean.
