Essentially as co-signer you are equally responsible for the default. So after the vehicle is seized, it will be sold, the proceeds applied against the loan and any remaining balance (shortfall) you and the other debtor are fully responsible for.

At this point the creditor will look to the both of you to see that the debt is satisfied in full as this is what would have been stipulated in the contract you would have signed.
