Does the cosigner of a car loan show up as the registered owner of the car?
I have a cosigner on a car loan. I'm wondering if I get pulled over, will the cosigner's name show up when the cops run the tags?
“It only depends on who’s on the title. A cosigner has no legal obligation to the vehicle. They’re only on the loan to make sure that the payments get made.
Unless you added their name to the title when registering the vehicle, it shouldn’t show up at all.”
