What rights does the borrower have to a vehicle if it is registered in their name if they borrowed money from a friend to purchase the vehicle?

If the car is in your name, you have all of the rights. If things were to fall through between the two of you, unless you and he have a signed agreement that you'll pay him back, you dont' have to pay him anything. Of course, that would be horrible to do, and he could take you to small claims court to get his money back. * Verbal agreements are legally binding. Only the person who holds title to a vehicle owns the vehicle. It is irrelevant who the vehicle is registered to. If the person has the title he or she can legally repossess the vehicle at any time and sue the borrower for any applicable costs connected to the repossession.

Can a parent take a 17 year old kids car away if the kid owns it?

If the vehicle is actually registered in the name of the minor, the parents cannot sell the vehicle without the owner's consent. However, in most places it is illegal to register and title a vehicle solely in the name of a child, and the vehicle would therefore legally be the property of the parents. Additionally, regardless of how the vehicle is titled, the parents have full authority to restrict the child's privileges to use the car, regardless of who owns it.
