plate renewal nightmare from buying new car:(

Post by reno »

about 4 months ago as most know. we bought are 2021 GMC Acadia and traded in are 2018 leased GMC Terrain. well as it turned out the dealership screwed up the license plate transfer . so for the last 4 months my other car not been legal on the road . both cars plates are one digit off from the other also were 2 year . some how the Department of motor Vehicle was told to it just list the 2008 parked or out of use. also a 3rd cluster F. is the dealer we made the deal with sold the dealership and now its under new ownership and they have no access to that sale's recorder . we have to deal with a dealership in a different town still own by the original dealership (owner ) any way ( it is confusing as hell. been trying to get a copy of the original window sticker and hitting a wall and now this BS.
anyway this is false and we have been driving it .we do have insurance on the car and had insurance on it this whole time. (bought 2 year plates or 1 1/2 year plates when we moved full time here and first registered the cars in florida .
. the DMV wanted a letter stating that a old Lean of loan was removed from it . we bought this car brand new and that was payed off years ago . (bought brand new in 2008 ) anyway they sent a letter to the credit union that had the lean on the cars title . the letter was returned do to them because of a address change due to that branch being bought/merger by another credit union . (it was the wife work credit union )
we were never informed of this by the DMV anyway. so now were having to deal with all this BS . and from what wife telling me there a 10 day time line .
we think were making headway this afternoon on part of this but its a waiting game . also the cars are both in the wifes name only. so im unable to do the paper chase. I'm better at it but not pushing buttons as we have to live together .

update as of this moment - dealer is getting the plate part fixed they are saying and we should be able to buy / renew them thought the DMV .
the title hit a road block as the credit unit has no file on the title . so they said wife will need to get a title copy from the dmv . when she fly's up in sept.to Michigan she need to bring it with her .then they sign off were it shows a lean. in the mean time we can't sell or trade the car if we want to. maybe scrap it if we are lucky. but my guess is for free to a junk yard as it be title less .

well the dealer pick up - one year renewal of my plate on my 2008 Saturn vue . they also said they fedx over night my tag all for free . so half of the problems fix . wife still will be going to the local branch of the credit union that bought out the one she belonged to when she was working . she should be able to get a release of lean on this 2008 Saturn vue . but this will not be till mid of September.
At least im able to legally drive the car again . on a side note by the time we off this car it be going to a scrap yard anyway. if im lucky they give me $50 - $100 as junk even with a title . without a title it just be hauled away.
