Illinois use car sales are "As Is" meaning the buyer is deemed to have inspected and accepted the vehicle in its current condition, as a general rule.
Most car contracts for used cars in Illinois have a clause similar to this......"OTHER THAN THE SELLER'S WARRANTY OF OWNERSHIP STATED ABOVE, THE BUYER TAKES THE VEHICLE "AS-IS" WITHOUT ANY WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AS TO ITS CONDITION. THE BUYER HAS PERSONALLY INSPECTED THE VEHICLE AND ACCEPTS IT "AS-IS".
There is no minimum age to buy a car in Illinois. In Illinois there is no law prohibiting a minor from holding the title to a vehicle. However, the Office of Jesse White Secretary of State advises caution to those that sell a car to someone younger than 18, because only a buyer 18 and older can be legally bound to a sales contract.
Consumers should have the dealer provide all prior information on the used vehicle, such as a complete title history. Make sure to ask for it before you buy.
