Every state has a motor vehicle title law and almost all of them say that you are never the owner of a car until your name is put on the title to it. If your vehicle does not have a title, then legally you never really bought it. You should immediately see a local Consumer Law attorney and find out what your rights are before your rights expire and you are stuck. Call your local attorney bar association and ask for a referral or you can check this web site page where there is a national list of consumer law attorneys, including lots in California:
