Illinois Used Car Sales Are "As Is”
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.
ContractMost 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".
MinorsThere 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.
Title HistoryConsumers 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.
