Can the co-buyer of a car take or sell the car without the buyer's consent? Posted on August 17, 2011

I am the co-buyer of a car. I want to take it with me when I move across the country but the buyer of the car objects to this. We both contributed to the down payment but I have been making the monthly payments for the car for the past 2 years (I still owe money on it). The buyer has been paying for the insurance. The buyer has never used the car. I am the primary driver of the car. The title has both of our names on it. Our names are separated by the conjunction "or." Is it legal for me to take the car cross-country against the buyer's wishes? Will the buyer be able to have me arrested or take legal action against me? Can I sell the car without the buyer's consent?
