You are the primary owner listed on your car loan and your husband was supposed to be a co - signer but they made him a co buyer and now he took your car what are your rights Can he do this legally?

Cars & Vehicles

I had a problem like this in Florida. the person-cobuyer took off with the car and didnt make the payments. There was not a thing I could do. The only thing you can do is try to get your hands on the car but you cannot cause a disturbance where the police are called. If you do get the car then he can do the same thing if he has a key. Maybe you can get the ignition switch changed if you get your hands on the car.

You are confusing me. If everything is in your name, how can you be the co-signer and not the primary borrower, and where did the "buyers" come in? Are you, perhaps 16-17 years old and your parents took away your driving privileges?
