I flew out of state to buy a vehicle in the state of Washington. I used to a credit card to purchase it despite that, they would not give me the title because they only do such to cash purchasers they said. They charged me 2.5% interest for using a credit card, which they did not advise me of ahead of time although they knew I would be making the purchase with a credit card, is this legal?
2nd, once I received the title I went to my BMV where I now live in the state of Ohio, and I could not register the vehicle. I was given the title with the original owner's name on it & paperwork to the dealership (Subara in Cali) he sold it to. WA dealership allegedly bought it from Subaru at an auction, but the BMV states that there is no paperwork showing that WA bought it from Subaru. It took me several days to get a hold of the person at the WA dealership & then asked me to send them documents. It took over a week to get the documents back & all they did was fill out a ODOMETER form and fill in the original vehicle title on the back where it reads DEALER Is this even legal? The charged me $150 doc fee I feel ripped off. I was expecting a title in my name from the get go!!!
What a nightmare hire a lawyer in your area to see if everything is legal best of luck.
