How to properly buy or sell a used car

Posted by on Jul 19, 2017 in Lemon Laws | Comments Off on How to properly buy or sell a used car

The recent news of the 19-year-old who sold a 1993 Nissan Pathfinder to the suspect in the Times Square bomb threat has sparked some questions about the best way to sell a used car.The student posted the ad on Craigslist and received $1,300 cash for it from Faisal Shahzad, but there wasn’t any paperwork between seller and buyer, so there was no record of the transaction. Luckily, authorities were able to track down Shahzad through the VIN and cell phone number he used.In order for a vehicle to be properly registered, the title would have had to been signed over to the new owner. In many states, a Bill of Sale and proof of insurance is also required. In a traditional deal, rather than the circumstances surrounding this unusual purchase, the lack of paperwork would have been a serious problem.While there are some benefits to buying a used …

It was the last Saturday in June when the Newell family welcomed Cocoa into their family. Filling out his adoption papers, looking over his vaccinations and paying the fee to Pack N’ Pounce.
“My kids were obsessed with him,” Samantha said.
But after one day in their home the Newells realized something was wrong with Cocoa.

Making lemonade from lemons can be a tall order when the lemon is a new car. The pride of new car ownership can deflate quickly when one realizes that the shiny new vehicle in their driveway is in fact a dud.
Some are surprised to find that their car manufacturer’s warranty does not do enough to quickly resolve repair issues. Most warranties do not designate a maximum time period for the completion of repairs for manufacturing defects. They also do not specify that the company should buy a defective vehicle back within a time period. For that reason states have enacted lemon laws. Your Better Business Bureau has the following explanation of the law as it exists in the State of Kansas.
What’s a lemon?
The Kansas Lemon Law only applies to new cars or other vehicles (including pickup trucks) with a gross weight …

The Massachusetts Division of Standards and municipal weights and measures inspectors recently completed inspections of 263 gas stations in 74 cities and towns statewide checking for skimming devices attached to gas pumps. After examining 1,525 pumps, the agency’s 2017 Skimmer Inspection Survey reported that four skimmers were discovered inside pumps at F.L. Roberts service stations in Easthampton and Amherst on May 2nd. Local police responded to both locations to remove and recover the evidence.

Inspectors also found that service stations were not uniformly using security tape to indicate the upper chamber of a gas pump hadn’t been tampered with. Of the 263 gas stations visited, 147 had no security tape affixed to their gas pumps. Further, the agency has learned and is warning service station owners that some …

However, sometimes our day-to-day lives create legal issues that can be resolved in far simpler surroundings.Let’s revisit a topic that seemed to be of interest to many people the last time it was discussed.After a house and higher education, one of the most expensive items most of us will purchase is a new car.

It can be a financial disaster.READ: This term’s significant Supreme Court decisionsREAD: At …
