nmvtis vehicle history reports for car dealers ( vinaudit.com/gotplates )

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

vehicle history report in the US contains important information about a used vehicle’s past. These reports generally show title records from each state DMV, along with salvage and insurance total loss records and accident records (1, 2, 7). This information is vital for consumers when choosing which used vehicle to purchase, as it can indicate issues with the vehicle’s safety and value. Additional information in a vehicle history report are ownership changes, and vehicle details decoded from the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) such as year, make, model, and odometer history.

Vehicle history reports are typically available online from several sources. Vehicle history reports are available for automobiles including light trucks and SUVs, motorcycles, recreational vehicles (RVs) and pre-1981 classic cars (1, 2, 7).

Vehicle history reports

Before purchasing a used vehicle, potential buyers often consider the purchase of vehicle history and title reports and salvage check reports to understand a vehicle’s background history. Users are generally interested in whether a vehicle that is being considered for purchase has been in a severe accident, had its odometer rolled back or has lemon history. Sellers of vehicles also check the history of their vehicle prior to listing for sale so they are prepared to answer questions to the condition of the vehicle or history events. Dealers often buy these reports that provide a detailed background on the used vehicle to show their customers. Dealers also run reports prior to acquiring vehicles at auction or from trade-ins to help insure they pay a fair market value. Vehicle prices may be adjusted due to history events on any particular vehicle.

A vehicle history report provides information and often detailed records associated with a vehicle’s unique serial number or VIN.

Items that can be included in a vehicle history and title report
Item Description
Title information Shows if the vehicle has been reported to have been issued a negative title “brand” like salvage or junk that often come with severe accidents
Number of titles Shows the reported ownership history and the possible ownership changes
States of title Provides the states that the vehicle has been reported titled or registered in previously
Salvage or junk information from titles or other sources Shows if the vehicle has been reported as a salvage vehicle by a state or has been reported at auction or junk yard
DMV-reported odometer problems Shows when the vehicle has been reported to having had its odometer rolled back or broken
Lemon history Shows if the vehicle has a been reported as a lemon
Insurance total loss information Shows if the vehicle has been reported as a total loss by an insurance company
Auction history Lets the buyer know if it has been reported at an auto auction
Accident history Shows if the vehicle has been in a reported accident or has sustained damage
Air bag deployment Shows whether or not the vehicle’s airbag has been reported as deployed
Mileage readings Lists the odometer readings that have been reported for the vehicle
Service records Shows any reported service information
State emission inspection results Shows the results of a state inspection or emission results as reported by the state
Warranty or service contract availability Shows whether or not the vehicle has been covered by warranty or service contract

A Salvage and VIN Check Report is an abbreviated version of a Vehicle History and Title Report, which helps consumers understand the severity reported damage associated with a vehicle. It identifies the reported title brands such as salvage or junk, or whether the vehicle has been reported a total loss by an insurance company. These reports can be obtained for passenger cars and light trucks, as well as motorcycles, RVs, heavy trucks and classic cars.

Vehicle History and Title Report data is gathered from multiple sources including State Departments of Motor Vehicles, automotive auctions, fire and police departments, salvage auctions, rental agencies, automotive recyclers, insurance companies, state inspection stations, manufacturers, and car dealerships.

In order to obtain a Vehicle History and Title Report, a potential buyer can go online to a reporting service provider and purchase a full report. Some services also offer a lower cost option for a Salvage and VIN Check Report, which has just the major damage history. Salvage and VIN Check reports can be accessed online from a number of companies, at varying cost. Used car dealers often provide a report upon request for a specific vehicle as part of the selling process. Consumers can check the validity and date of these reports by running their own report and comparing the results. Old reports may not contain the latest history as the reports are time sensitive. Typically, a consumer is most interested in whether or not the vehicle has been in a severe accident or has been branded as salvage, junk or totaled.

National Motor Vehicle Title Information System

The National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS) is a program of Department of Justice intended to keep and protect consumers from fraud and unsafe vehicles. AAMVA operates the system now. Federal Law has mandated businesses and agencies such as Insurance Carriers, State Motor Vehicle Tilting Agencies, Auto Recyclers and Junk/Salvage Yards to regularly report to NMVTIS. The NMVTIS refers the public to a list of approved private vendors who sell vehicle reports from the NMVTIS database.[1]

NMVTIS has a wide database of over 9,000 numbers of Insurance carriers, auto recyclers and junk and salvage yards reporting to them and 38.9 million records of salvage or total loss, making up 87% of DMV data represents the system.

Consumers can take advantage of having a Vehicle History Report from this reliable system where they can view data such as Title Problem Checks, Odometer Checks, History of Accidents and Junk or Salvage Records.

Jay Leno Quail Car Show - H 2013

Jay Leno holds court at The Quail car show in Monterey on Friday.

Jay Leno and Patrick Dempsey are among the stars at the automotive event, where cars with Hollywood histories have mostly fizzled.

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif – Vintage Ferrari sales are breaking records up in Monterey, Calif., this weekend, where the Cannes of the automotive world is underway.

On Saturday night, a 275 Ferrari N.A.R.T. Spyder hammered at $25 million (or $27.5 million, if you include the standard 10 percent commission). Another Italian beauty — a 1953 Ferrari 375 MM — sold on Friday night for slightly more than $9 million. Both sales went down at the RM Auctions sales.

PHOTOS: Hollywood’s Private Jets: From Oprah Winfrey to Tom Cruise, Who Owns What

Meanwhile, entertainment biz folks are thin on the ground here, where multiple events are taking place over a long weekend on the Monterey Peninsula. Car enthusiasts Jay Leno and PatrickDempsey did make the trek and milled around Friday’s $550-a-ticket car show at The Quail. Dempsey caught up with Formula One champ Michael Schumacher, who spoke on a panel during the show with former Ferrari CEO Jean Todt. But other biz regulars at the annual Monterey motoring events are MIA, including Fox chairman Jim Gianopulosand attorney Alan Wertheimer.

“Too much work,” was Wertheimer’s excuse via text from Los Angeles.

And comedian Adam Carolla, who was racing his Nissan at the nearby Laguna Seca racetrack on Saturday, said, “I actually have to work tonight.” He had a stand-up gig in the area. “Yeah, it helps pay for some of this,” he said as he motioned to his car, which used to be raced by Paul Newman. (Carolla added he’s working on a Newman documentary.)

There were several cars with Hollywood histories and provenances at the auctions here, but not many fetched big sales. At the Gooding & Company sale on Saturday night, a 1927 Rolls-Royce Phantom I Playboy Roadster that made an appearance in Giant went for $341,000, while the 1920 Locomobile 48 Sportif, seen in the 1992 Robert Downey Jr. film Chaplin, came off the block at $176,000 — both selling at the low end of their estimates.

Hedy Lamarr‘s husband’s prewar French Delage D8-120 sold for $770,000 at Gooding. But the ’63 Corvette Sting Ray race car featured in the Elvis Presley film Viva Las Vegas (estimated at $375,000-$475,000) didn’t sell at Friday night’s RM auction because it didn’t fetch its reserve price.

Sunday’s final auction at Gooding isn’t expected to eclipse Saturday night’s Ferrari record, but perhaps the motorheads will be exhausted anyway — after a full day of walking the Pebble Beach lawn, where the annual Concours D’Elegance is unfolding under foggy skies.

car dealers under attack in california for following the law

By Brittany-Marie Swanson

Rosemary Shahan, president of CARS, speaks at the CFPB’s first public forum on auto lending in November.
Rosemary Shahan, president of CARS, speaks at the CFPB's first public forum on auto lending in November.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Consumers for Auto Reliability and Safety (CARS), a consumer advocacy group, submitted a new ballot initiative to the California attorney general’s office on Oct. 30. Part of the initiative calls for the elimination of dealer markup, a practice currently being scrutinized by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).

Rosemary Shahan, president of CARS, discussed the ballot measure during the CFPB’s first public forum on auto lending, held on Nov. 15 at its Washington, D.C., headquarters. The Car Buyers Protection Act is slated to appear on the November 2014 ballot.

“I would note that the provision [aimed at eliminating dealer markup] in the initiative that we just filed … polled at 82 percent support,” Shahan said during the CFPB forum, for which she served as a panelist. “And there isn’t a lot these days that polls so resoundingly well.”

Most industry and regulatory representatives present at the forum, including CFPB Director Richard Cordray, agreed that dealers deserve to be compensated for arranging financing for consumers. The CFPB is concerned that the discretion dealers are allowed when marking up rates creates a fair lending risk. Shahan, however, disagreed.

“I don’t think they should be compensated for that,” Shahan told F&I and Showroom. “It’s something you can do yourself better for free. Why would you pay someone to put you into a bad loan?”

California New Car Dealer Association (CNCDA) President Brian Maas told the magazine that Shahan’s approach is “pretty hard to respond to.”

“The short summary is, [the initiative] is a solution in search of a problem,” he said. “It would have a potentially devastating impact on the new-car business, just to fix things that frankly are going to be resolved one way or another anyway, or don’t need to be resolved at all, or are confusing. So we’re perplexed, frankly. Why this ballot measure at this time?

“Obviously, the CFPB is looking at the issue closely and trying to decide if disparate impact or discrimination exists [in auto lending], and what’s the appropriate compensation scheme and what have you,” Maas added. “But even the CFPB has conceded that dealers should be paid for performing the service.”

In addition to eliminating dealer markup, the proposed Car Buyers Protection Act would make it illegal for dealers to sell, rent, lease or loan recalled used cars, as well as improve protections against “bait and switch” financing and for victims of identity theft perpetrated at car dealerships. The proposed ballot measure would also require that dealers offer a minimum 30-day, 1,000-mile warranty on all used cars.

The initiative also seeks to eliminate the authority of the New Motor Vehicle Board to overrule disciplinary actions against dealers and manufacturers approved by the Department of Motor Vehicles.

“There are a number of problems that have been identified over the years where the public really wants to see change, but the dealers keep blocking it in the legislature either federally, or at the state level,” Shahan said. “And so [this initiative] is aimed at getting these policies enacted through popular vote.”

The advocacy group recently sponsored SB 686, a bill intended to prohibit the sale of unsafe used cars. It was blocked in California’s Assembly Business and Professions Committee in July and cannot be revived until January 2014.

At the CFPB forum, Shahan called California “ground zero” for the issue the CFPB is currently tackling: discrimination in auto lending. California is one of two states that caps dealer markups —2.5 percent for loans up to 60 months and 2 percent for longer loans.

Shahan’s organization’s next step is to meet with the California attorney general’s office, and she said she’s prepared for a long fight. “I expect it to be a battle,” she said. “I imagine the dealers are going to oppose it tooth and nail. But I think at the end of the day, we’ll win. Because … the practices really do not stand up to scrutiny.”

Maas, however, pointed out that the ballot measure may harm the people it intends to protect.

“If dealers don’t provide financing, how does a subprime customer get financed? You can’t walk into a subprime lending intuition; they don’t exist … If I’m a credit challenged customer, it’s the dealer that is working hard to get me financed,” he said. “He’s got an incentive, he wants to sell a car … and that’s why the dealer financing model works.

“We’re a bit frustrated,” Maas added. “It’s not clear at this point how much support [Shahan] has for the measure, other than the fact that she spent $200 to file it with the attorney general.”

30 day warranty mandatory for bhph car dealers

AB 1447 (Feuer)
Automobile sales finance: sellers.

The Rees-Levering Motor Vehicle Sales and Finance Act regulates conditional sales contracts for motor vehicles, and, among other things, requires a person selling or leasing a motor vehicle under a conditional sale contract to disclose certain information to the buyer of the vehicle.

A willful violation of those provisions is a misdemeanor and may render the contract unenforceable. A seller who violates the provisions of the act may also be liable to the buyer for monetary damages.

This bill requires a buy-here-pay-here dealer, as defined, to issue a 30-day or 1,000-mile warranty to the buyer or lessee of a used vehicle bought or leased at retail price, and would require the warranty to cover the engine, transmission, drive axle, front and rear wheel drive components, engine cooling system, brakes, front and rear suspension systems, steering, seatbelts, inflatable restraint systems, catalytic converter or other emissions components, heater, seals and gaskets, electrical, electronic, and computer components, alternator, generator, starter, and ignition system.

The bill requires the buy-here-pay-here dealer to either repair those covered parts that fail or, at the buy-here-pay-here dealers election, to cancel the sale or lease and reimburse the buyer or lessee, as specified.

The bill requires the buy-here-pay-here dealer to pay 100% of the cost of labor and parts for any repairs under the warranty.

The bill voids any sales agreement for the purchase or lease of a vehicle that waives, limits, or disclaims these requirements.

The bill provides that a warranty is deemed to have been issued if a buy-here-pay-here dealer fails to issue a warranty pursuant to these provisions.

The bill prohibits a buy-here-pay-here dealer from requiring the buyer to make payments in person, with the exception of the downpayment for the vehicle,

The bill prohibits the buy-here-pay-here dealer from repossessing the vehicle or charging a penalty following timely payment of a deferred downpayment.

The bill prohibits the buy-here-pay-here dealer from, after the sale of the vehicle, tracking the vehicle using electronic tracking technology and from disabling the vehicle with starter interrupt technology, except as specified, and would make a violation of these prohibitions a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $1,000.

The bill also makes findings and declarations related to buy-here-pay-here dealers, and would authorize the Department of Motor Vehicles to promulgate any necessary regulations.

The federal buyers guide must be posted to reflect a 30 day 1000 mile warranty if buy here pay here financing is offered within the dealership.

what is an autobroker and how do they make any money ???

The typical used car deal yields a profit of between $ 1500 and $ 2500. per car deal

The salesman handling the deal typically makes $ 500. per car deal

The broker bringing the deal to the table usually makes $ 300.

+++

Any broker in the business quickly learns

what type of car and what credit score is required

to close the deal

and

typically steers the buyer to an appropriate dealer

depending on the down payment offered by the buyer

and the credit score of the buyer

+++

A good broker will have standing agreements with the dealers

for a reduced price on every vehicle

in exchange for the done deal

Think of it as an outside salesperson

who only gets paid

when the sale is completed

+++

Brokers must be licensed dealers

and brokers must be bonded and insured

+++

When you are looking for your next car

consider a bonded, insured and licensed broker

just what is a VIN ???

What’s a VIN?
A Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is the 17-character identifier for your car, truck, or motorcycle. It looks like this: 1VXBR12EXCP901213, and encodes the vehicle’s manufacturer, features, and serial number. No two vehicles have the same VIN, so it serves as your car’s fingerprint– this allows for all reports of accidents, title problems, insurance incidents, and more to be tracked through each vehicle’s VIN.

Through VinAudit.com, you can look up records associated with your VIN instantly:

Enter VIN:
What’s this? Example: 1VXBR12EXCP901213

Where can I find my VIN?
You can find your vehicle’s VIN in the title document, the vehicle registration, and on the insurance policy. The VIN could also be located at the following locations on the car itself:

 

  • On the driver’s side dashboard
    (viewable through the windshield)
  • On the driver’s side door
    (on a sticker in the door jamb)

Why would I order a VIN report?
A VIN report lets you learn about your vehicle’s history. It includes checks for whether the car has been stolen, experienced accidents, recorded as salvaged, as well as many othertitle problem checks. Ordering a VIN report before purchasing a vehicle allows you to catch potential problems and purchase with confidence.

FTC tips for the red flag rules

+++

Are you complying with the Red Flags Rule?

The Red Flags Rule requires many businesses and organizations to implement a written Identity Theft Prevention Program designed to detect the warning signs — or “red flags” — of identity theft in their day-to-day operations. By identifying red flags in advance, businesses will be better equipped to spot suspicious patterns that may arise — and take steps to prevent a red flag from escalating into a costly episode of identity theft.

Resources on this site can help business people educate their staff and colleagues about complying with the Red Flags Rule.

What Compliance Looks Like

Your Identity Theft Prevention Program is a “playbook” that must include reasonable policies and procedures for detecting, preventing, and mitigating identity theft. Your Program should enable your organization to:

  1. identify relevant patterns, practices, and specific forms of activity — the “red flags” — that signal possible identity theft;
  2. incorporate business practices to detect red flags;
  3. detail your appropriate response to any red flags you detect to prevent and mitigate identity theft; and
  4. be updated periodically to reflect changes in risks from identity theft.

The Red Flags Rule also includes guidelines to help financial institutions and creditors develop and implement a Program, including a supplement that offers examples of red flags.

The FTC and the federal financial agencies have issued Frequently Asked Questions and answers to help businesses comply with the Rule.

Who Must Comply with the Red Flags Rule?

The Rule requires “financial institutions” and “creditors” that hold consumer accounts designed to permit multiple payments or transactions — or any other account for which there is a reasonably foreseeable risk of identity theft — to develop and implement an Identity Theft Prevention Program for new and existing accounts. The definition of “financial institution” includes:

  • all banks, savings associations, and credit unions, regardless of whether they hold a transaction account belonging to a consumer; and
  • anyone else who directly or indirectly holds a transaction account belonging to a consumer.

A change in the law on December 18, 2010 amended the the definition of “creditor,” and limits the circumstances under which creditors are covered. The new law covers creditors who regularly, and in the ordinary course of business, meet one of three general criteria. They must:

  • obtain or use consumer reports in connection with a credit transaction;
  • furnish information to consumer reporting agencies in connection with a credit transaction; or
  • advance funds to — or on behalf of — someone, except for funds for expenses incidental to a service provided by the creditor to that person.

Bookmark this site and check it often for revisions that reflect changes in the law.

Jay Leno Quail Car Show - H 2013
Getty Images
Jay Leno holds court at The Quail car show in Monterey on Friday.

Jay Leno and Patrick Dempsey are among the stars at the automotive event, where cars with Hollywood histories have mostly fizzled.

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif – Vintage Ferrari sales are breaking records up in Monterey, Calif., this weekend, where the Cannes of the automotive world is underway.

On Saturday night, a 275 Ferrari N.A.R.T. Spyder hammered at $25 million (or $27.5 million, if you include the standard 10 percent commission). Another Italian beauty — a 1953 Ferrari 375 MM — sold on Friday night for slightly more than $9 million. Both sales went down at the RM Auctions sales.

PHOTOS: Hollywood’s Private Jets: From Oprah Winfrey to Tom Cruise, Who Owns What

Meanwhile, entertainment biz folks are thin on the ground here, where multiple events are taking place over a long weekend on the Monterey Peninsula. Car enthusiasts Jay Leno and PatrickDempsey did make the trek and milled around Friday’s $550-a-ticket car show at The Quail. Dempsey caught up with Formula One champ Michael Schumacher, who spoke on a panel during the show with former Ferrari CEO Jean Todt. But other biz regulars at the annual Monterey motoring events are MIA, including Fox chairman Jim Gianopulosand attorney Alan Wertheimer.

“Too much work,” was Wertheimer’s excuse via text from Los Angeles.

And comedian Adam Carolla, who was racing his Nissan at the nearby Laguna Seca racetrack on Saturday, said, “I actually have to work tonight.” He had a stand-up gig in the area. “Yeah, it helps pay for some of this,” he said as he motioned to his car, which used to be raced by Paul Newman. (Carolla added he’s working on a Newman documentary.)

There were several cars with Hollywood histories and provenances at the auctions here, but not many fetched big sales. At the Gooding & Company sale on Saturday night, a 1927 Rolls-Royce Phantom I Playboy Roadster that made an appearance in Giant went for $341,000, while the 1920 Locomobile 48 Sportif, seen in the 1992 Robert Downey Jr. film Chaplin, came off the block at $176,000 — both selling at the low end of their estimates.

Hedy Lamarr‘s husband’s prewar French Delage D8-120 sold for $770,000 at Gooding. But the ’63 Corvette Sting Ray race car featured in the Elvis Presley film Viva Las Vegas (estimated at $375,000-$475,000) didn’t sell at Friday night’s RM auction because it didn’t fetch its reserve price.

Sunday’s final auction at Gooding isn’t expected to eclipse Saturday night’s Ferrari record, but perhaps the motorheads will be exhausted anyway — after a full day of walking the Pebble Beach lawn, where the annual Concours D’Elegance is unfolding under foggy skies.

car dealer license questions and answers

Vehicle Dealer Frequently Asked Questions

Listed below are the most frequently asked questions. This list is not all inclusive nor is it intended to be.

If you have any questions, please contact your local DMV Inspector or call (916) 229-3126.

Where can I obtain application forms?

All application forms and further licensing information can be downloaded from the

Apply For An Original page.


Who do I contact to get a dealer’s license?

You may obtain the necessary information and application to apply for a dealer’s license from any DMV Inspector in your area,

or see Vehicle Dealer’s License Forms page.

Applications for a used vehicle dealer’s license, or wholesale only dealers license,

will not be accepted by the DMV Inspectors without proof of completion of the Used Vehicle Dealer Education Program

and proof of successfully passing the dealer examination or proof of being licensed as a vehicle dealer within the past 36 months.

For testing appointments and information regarding a dealers license, please call one of the DMV Inspectors in your area.


Where do I file my application?

Application packages for vehicle dealers are submitted to your local DMV Inspector.


Where do I call if I have questions?

If you have general licensing questions you may call (916) 229-3126.


What is an abbreviated application?

An abbreviated application allows applicants, with conviction(s), to discover if a license will be issued or reissued

without incurring the possible unnecessary expenses of obtaining a bond,

establishing a place of business and/or attending a dealer education program.

See Abbreviated Applications page.


What is the New Motor Vehicle Board Function?

The New Motor Vehicle Board (NMVB) operates in a quasi-judicial capacity to resolve disputes (protests)

between franchised new vehicle dealers (vehicle, motorcycle, ATV, and recreational vehicle) and manufacturers.

These disputes typically concern franchise terminations or modifications,

establishments or relocations of a same line-make franchise within the dealer’s relevant market area (10 air miles),

and reimbursement for warranty or franchisor incentive program payments.

The NMVB also hears and considers appeals presented by a new vehicle dealer or manufacturer

after any final decision of the Director of the department that adversely affects the occupational license of the appellant,

such as the suspension or revocation of the license. Vehicle Code sections 507, 3050-3079.

Lastly, there is a Consumer Mediation Services Program that attempts through informal mediation

to resolve disputes between consumers and new vehicle dealers and manufacturers.


Who is the New Motor Vehicle Board?

The New Motor Vehicle Board consists of nine members. Four of the appointed members are new motor vehicle dealers,

engaged in business for a period of not less than five years preceding their appointment.

The remaining five appointed members are public members not affiliated with any licensed dealer.


How long will it take for the department to process my application?

The average time for processing an application may be up to 120 days

to allow the department time for background check and processing of the license.


Does the department issue temporary permits?

Pending the satisfaction of the department that the applicant has met the requirements for the license,

the department may issue a temporary permit for a period not to exceed 120 days while it completes its investigation

and determination of all facts relative to the qualifications of the applicant for the license. CVC Section 11719


What is the license renewal period?

The vehicle dealer license is renewed annually for the first year after receiving the original license;

and then biannually based on the month the original license was issued.

Renewals should be made before the expiration of the license.

If you do not renew your license before it expires, you may renew your license within thirty (30) days

following the expiration date by paying the renewal fee and a penalty equal to 100 percent of the original application fee.

Renewals will not be accepted for licenses that have been expired for more than 30 days. CVC Section 11717(d).


How do I renew my license?

About 90 days before the expiration of your license you should receive a courtesy notice for renewal.

After you complete the courtesy notice, you will need to mail your renewal form and fees to:

Department of Motor Vehicles
Occupational Licensing
P.O. Box 932342 MS L224
Sacramento, CA 94232-3420

If you do not receive a courtesy notice please call (916) 229-3126

or you may download the renewal form from the Renew Your License page.


How do I get additional plates, replacement plates, stickers only, or a duplicate registration card?

You will need to fill out form OL 22 for additional plates,

replacement plates, stickers only, or a duplicate registration card.


What happens to my supplies if I cease doing business?

When licensed dealers cease doing business, or a bond,

cancelled by the Surety Company is not reinstated by the cancellation date,

the dealers shall immediately surrender the business license, special plates, registration cards,

and all report of sale books to the DMV Inspector Office.


What happens if there is a change in ownership?

When a licensed dealer has an ownership change,

all supplies must be surrendered to the Department of Motor Vehicles

and the submission of an original application for license is required.

A new application will require the submission of new fees and a new bond.


How do I make a change to my existing license?

When a licensed dealer changes location, adds a branch office, changes the firm name,

or makes a change in the corporate structure,

the licensee must immediately notify the DMV Inspector,

and submit the appropriate forms and fees for the change.

Licensed dealer changes matrix

Are there any signs I must post?

Yes. Along with the “Established Place of Business” Sign,

you will need the following posted on the premises:

“…in a space conspicuous to the public in each and every location,

the license issued by the department to the dealer and to each salesman employed by that dealer” CVC section 11709(a)

Every dealer who displays or offers one or more used vehicles for sale at retail shall post a notice

not less than 8 inches high and 10 inches wide, in a place conspicuous to the public, which states the following:

“The prospective purchaser of a vehicle may,

at his or her own expense and with the approval of the dealer,

have the vehicle inspected by an independent third party either on or off these premises.” CVC section 11709

Additionally, every dealer shall conspicuously display a notice not less than eight inches high and 10 inches wide,
in each sales office and sales cubicle of a dealer’s established place of business
where written terms of specific sale or lease transactions are discussed with prospective purchasers or lessees,
and in each room of a dealer’s established place of business where sale and lease contracts are regularly executed,
which states the following:

“There Is No Cooling-Off Period Unless You Obtain A Contract Cancellation Option.”

California law does not provide for a “Cooling-off” or cancellation period for vehicle lease or purchase contracts.

Therefore, you cannot later cancel such a contract simply because you change your mind,

decide the vehicle cost too much, or wish you had acquired a different vehicle.

After you sign a motor vehicle purchase or lease contract,

it may only be canceled with the agreement of the seller or lessor for legal cause, such as fraud.

However, California law does require a seller to offer a 2 day contract cancellation option

on used vehicles with a purchase price of less than $40,000,

subject to certain statutory conditions.

This contract cancellation option requirement does not apply to the sale of a motorcycle or an off-highway motor vehicle

subject to identification under California law.

See the vehicle contract cancellation option agreement for details. CVC section 11709

retro license plates may make a revival

Retro license plate proposal on the move

California lawmakers can’t roll back gas prices or revive eight-track tape players, but they soon may offer motorists something else from decades past: replica license plates.

Assembly Bill 1658 would allow the Department of Motor Vehicles to issue plates resembling those of the 1950s, through ’80s for a fee – $50 initially, $40 per year – to cover administrative costs and raise money for environmental projects.

Assemblyman Mike Gatto, a Los Angeles Democrat who proposed the bill, said it capitalizes on nostalgia and recent production of retro-style vehicles. “What’s old is new,” he says, “and it might make the state a little money, too.”

Plates would not be issued by the DMV until 7,500 had been ordered by the public. They would come in three classic designs, with black lettering on a yellow background, or yellow lettering on either a black or blue background.

The new plates would not be exact reproductions, however. Current plates have seven digits, for example, while those of decades past had six. Reflectivity and font-type standards also have changed through the decades.

AB 1658 received bipartisan support in the Assembly Transportation Committee, 14-0, and is awaiting action in the Assembly Appropriations Committee.

odometer fraud can be a costly mistake for the craigslist car buyer

Odometer Fraud: Used Cars Lying About Their Age

It's estimated that 1 in 10 cars will have their odometer tampered with.  Look for clues both in and around the gauges, as well as along the whole car to help you determine if fraud is afoot.
It’s estimated that 1 in 10 cars will have their odometer tampered with. Look for clues both in and around the gauges, as well as along the whole car to help you determine if fraud is afoot.

Source: Manuel Cintron

It stands to reason that you’ve heard the phrase “time is money” — after all, it’s been around for over two and a half centuries.

Coined by Mr. Benjamin Franklin in 1748 as a warning to idle people, it would thrill him to know its became the motto of hustler and two-timer alike. In any circumstance, Franklin’s wisdom is inescapably true — even one he couldn’t have foreseen: the used car market.

Fitting that the coiner of the phrase, "time is money" should be the face on the $100 bill.
Fitting that the coiner of the phrase, “time is money” should be the face on the $100 bill.

Like a creeper on a dance club floor, the quickest way for a car to find somebody to go home with is to lie about its age.

Odometers have been keeping track of miles far longer than cars have been covering them (Franklin himself invented one of his own to measure the distance traveled by postal carriers for finding cost effective routes — they weren’t going to put someone who didn’t care about money on the $100 bill).

Where their accuracy helped Mr. Franklin, their inaccuracies help unscrupulous car sellers make undeserved money off of you.

Clocking” and “Spinning:

Tampering with a car’s odometer became known as “clocking” and “spinning” the dials back when they were actually dials — a ring and pinion reduction that spun the six tumblers with numbers on them.

That mechanism in the dash is connected to the drivetrain by a tightly wound, flexible cable that is engaged to measure when the car’s transmission is in-gear. Only the tumblers in the dash need be tampered with to shave a few hundred or thousands of miles off a car.

“We estimate 1 in 10 cars have their odometer rolled back,” said Jack Gillis, public affairs director for the Consumer Federation of America and the author of “The Car Book”.

The process of fiddling with analog odometers can leave behind clues that, with a keen eye, you can spot (and dodge the bullet heading for your wallet — and safety).

CarFax, makers of vehicle history-reports, recommends that you pay attention to details in and around the dash and driver’s seat for signs of a car trying to pass for “newer” than it actually is.

  • Finger prints in the inside of a gauge cluster’s clear plastic means someone’s sticky fingers were where they shouldn’t have been
  • Extra-worn gas/brake/clutch pedals, shift knobs, and steering wheels on “low mileage” cars shouldn’t be — unless the owner has a handshake grittier than sandpaper
  • Be suspicious of trim-damage (marred or warped plastics) and loose screws near the gauge cluster

CarFax recommends paying attention to analog odometers with tumblers that have gaps between them, aren’t aligned as straight as you’d expector (and this should definitely indicate something) ‘jiggle’ when you strike the dash.

The tumblers should move smoothly, without intermittent changes in the action.

Keep a close-eye on the 10,000-digit tumbler, there’s money to be had in cars that are below the five-and-six-digit mileage marks. These will be the ones likeliest to be adjusted

TIPa car with less than 10,000 miles should still be on its original tires; their make can be obtained from a brand dealer.

This shift knob has visible wear on its surface.  It's from a 13-year-old car, with nearly 133,000 miles.  Check "high-touch" surfaces that will see more wear to determine a car's age and road use for yourself.

CarFax also recommends checking mileage against service-stickers, like oil changes. These are located in the door sills and window/windshield corners.

Truthfully though, anyone who didn’t think to change these to help sell their story wasn’t trying very hard — you should look deeper, suspicious or not.

Records, Records, Records:

Every time a car changes hands and is registered to a new owner, an account of its current mileage is taken and stored with the vehicles government records.

Services like CarFax provide records of this information (along with a car’s history of reported accidents and repairs — even if the car was somewhere classified a disaster area).

Utilizing this tool instead of simply going by the title of the current owner can help you spot a mileage discrepancy that they had no ability to hide.

When looking at the title your prospective car seller has – check:

  • the dates of their ownership-title against your vehicle report (reports take their data from DMV records)
  • the mileage on their documentation for fading or anything “conveniently” making it hard to read

A full history report costs a fee, but CarFax offers free odometer-checks of charge on their website (you just need the car’s Vehicle Identification Number, located at the bottom of the driver’s-side windshield and door-sill sticker).

TIPEven this kind of meticulous record-diving is no substitution for a good vehicle inspection by a mechanic of your choosing. Opt for one when possible.

Digital Odomoters, Faithful Guard or Fraud-Assiting:

The digital odometer, operating from the car’s on board Electronic Control Unit/Module, was developed for stopping analog-tampering. Unfortunately, criminals can be ingenious and quickly adapt.

People familiar with the old style of “clocking” were foiled, but a more tech-savvy auto hustler emerged (with worryingly easy-to-find tools).

Engineers designed back doors into car’s digital systems for correcting anomalies (like mismatched odometers from replacing a car’s instruments).

There exists both software and hardware to ‘correct’ odometers, but they can also input whatever road-age you’d like. Not even reserved for the truly committed and well financed crook, some examples are relatively inexpensive.

Any vehicle claiming to be under 10,000 miles should still have its original factory tires.  If you're unsure of what model these should be, contact a local dealer of the car brand.

That’s a helluva lot of access (and felony potential) for your two Benjamin bills.

It is a felony, thanks to the Federal Truth in Mileage Act (TIMA), to tamper with any car’s odometer.

It is a costly form of fraud to potential consumers.

Without an accurate account of a car’s mileage — critical, mileage-based maintenance goes unperformed (becoming even costlier repairs).

There is no shortage of digital odometer tools for shady car sellers to obtain.

When checking a car:

Look over the cabin (especially the driver’s area)

Check the gauge cluster for the signs (especially loose tumblers on analogue odometers)

Check external components like brakes, the trunk (lift back the carpet), and a car’s fluids beneath the hood (low mileage should have fresh-looking fluids)

You can check my in-depth Hub for used-car buying here.

Your obsessiveness and attention to detail can spare you money and headache alike.

close call for tennessee tesla driver in fiery crash

November 9, 2013

By Juris Shibayama, MD

TAGS: CUSTOMERS / MODEL S / STORES /
 0 comments

I was driving home from work on the interstate in the right lane at approximately 70 miles per hour, following a truck. In the middle of the lane, there was a rusty three-pronged trailer hitch that was sticking up with the ball up in the air. The truck in front of me cleared the object. I did not have enough time to swerve to avoid the hitch, and it went below my car. I felt a firm “thud” as the hitch struck the bottom of the car, and it felt as though it even lifted the car up in the air. My assistant later found a gouge in the tarmac where the item scraped into the road. Somewhat shaken, I continued to drive.

About 30-45 seconds later, there was a warning on the dashboard display saying, “Car needs service. Car may not restart.” I continued to drive, hoping to get home. About one minute later, the message on the dashboard display read, “Please pull over safely. Car is shutting down.” I was able to fully control the car the entire time and safely pulled off the left shoulder on the side of the road. I got out of the car, and started to get all my belongings out. About 5-10 seconds after getting out of the car, smoke started to come from the front underbody of the car. I walked away from the vehicle to a distance of about 100 yards. More smoke started to come out of the bottom of the car, and about two minutes after I walked away, the front of the car caught on fire.

I am thankful to God that I was totally uninjured in any way from this impact. Had I not been in a Tesla, that object could have punched through the floor and caused me serious harm. From the time of impact of the object until the time the car caught fire was about five minutes. During this time, the car warned me that it was damaged and instructed me to pull over. I never felt as though I was in any imminent danger. While driving after I hit the object until I pulled over, the car performed perfectly, and it was a totally controlled situation. There was never a point at which I was anywhere even close to any flames.

The firemen arrived promptly and applied water to the flames. They were about to pry open the doors, so I pressed my key button and the handles presented and everything worked even though the front of the car was on fire. No flames ever reached the cabin, and nothing inside was damaged. I was even able to get my papers and pens out of the glove compartment.

This experience does not in any way make me think that the Tesla Model S is an unsafe car. I would buy another one in a heartbeat.

great savings ??? risky purchase ???…..be careful of salvage title vehicles

Top 5 Issues With Salvage Title Auto Vehicles

Though the price tag can be a real draw, many car buyers have reported a lot of problems when purchasing a salvage title auto vehicle. Here are some of the top concerns drivers should have about trying to get one of these bargains on the road.

Financing – Lots of lenders are wary of financing a salvage title deal because of the unknowns around the vehicle’s real value. Buyers will often have to pay cash up front.
Different State Requirements – Each state has its own rules and regulations for getting salvage title cars street legal. In some states, a state police officer must inspect the vehicle. First time salvage title buyers can often get blindsided with unfamiliar requirements.
Getting Coverage – Some insurers will refuse to cover a salvage title vehicle or jack up the rates, claiming the vehicle is not “roadworthy” or represents a safety risk.
Claim Situations – If a driver does get insurance for a salvage title vehicle, the insurer will probably not pay out much in the case of a claim. They may contend that because of prior damage, the vehicle is not worth much, regardless of how the vehicle looks or what the actual damage is.
Resale – Those who buy salvage title vehicles are hardly ever going to get easy resale value. Most buyers tend to avoid these vehicles because of the above problems.
These are a few of the most major problems with actually making use of a salvage title deal that looked so good on paper. Do your homework before buying to avoid these dicey situations.

Related Questions and Answers

Are there any Laws Against Getting a Rebuildable Salvage Car for Project Car Purposes?
You must show your DMV that you are getting a rebuildable salvage car for project purposes. In other words, you will have to provide to your DMV that the flood-ravaged 2011 Camaro that was floating upside-down in mud and crud-encrusted water is not having its carpeting and padding ripped out. Or, its upholstery swapped so that the vehicle meets the very minimum of the law to be sold as a “new” vehicle. Remember that if you are building a salvage car, you must show proof that the salvage parts you were supposed to have changed, were actually changed.

Are there any Restrictions to Selling a Used Salvage Car?
There are no restrictions to selling a used salvage car, provided that you clear the reason for the salvage restriction in the first place, and rebuild the salvage title into a standard title. The reason for the salvage title could be as little as a precaution on the part of an insurance company that assumed such because one car on a lot was flooded, all the cars would be flooded. Therefore, it should be totaled and sent into the salvage market. However, there are salvage titles where you must show proof that the damage that led to the salvage marking in the first place has been cleaned and replaced. You must prove this beyond the shadow of a doubt for your DMV and insurance company.

new california investigative unit to hunt for tax evaders

Governor Signs AB576

October 09, 2013

New Enforcement Effort Will Target Tax Evaders

It is estimated that tax cheaters and evaders in California are ripping off the state by billions of dollars a year, but legislation signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown this week, will work to change that.

Assembly Bill 576 provides for a new investigation and enforcement effort that will include California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) members who are investigators with the Employment Development Department (EDD), the Franchise Tax Board (FTB), and the Department of Justice (DOJ) all working with the Board of Equalization (BOE).

“These people and businesses making money, yet fudging numbers to avoid taxes and fees, or not reporting all together, hurt our economy, ” said CSLEA President Alan Barcelona.  “That’s money that could be used for public safety, consumer protection, public schools and other state services.”

AB 576 will create a centralized intelligence partnership to be known as the Revenue Recovery and Collaborative Enforcement Team until January 1, 2019.
