Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to answer your legal questions.
If your friend is the owner of the vehicle, then he has the right to use the vehicle for any purpose that he wants. However, if you have an agreement that you have the right to sue the vehicle for your own purposes, then you could sue him for breach of contract. You'd need to prove that such an agreement exists. It would probably seem clear to a judge that there is some sort of agreement, otherwise you wouldn't pay for the note and insurance. But it's not clear whether your friend was entitled (under your agreement) to cancel at any time, and begin paying for the note and insurance himself. It does sound like you may have a good case, however, considering you made the down payment as well.
Does that answer your question? Please let me know if you need clarification, as I am happy to continue helping you until you are satisfied.
