I'm going to call the dealer tomorrow but I don't trust them at all to know what they are talking about (!!!) so I'm asking here as well....

I bought a brand new car in June. I went to the DMV yesterday and spent forever waiting in line to get my car registered. I totally forgot to tell them I also need a title. They didn't ask me any specifics about the car other than the color. It would seem really obvious that I also need a title since it is a new car but I'm not sure that was done. Do I need to go back to the DMV and endure that terrible line again just to ask them if they also issued a title? Or is that already done by the dealership or when I registered the car?

Ugh. The DMV.

Did you pay cash? If not, your lien holder keeps the title until you pay the lien off.

I just bought a used vehicle last week out of state and was at the DMV on Monday with the out of state title needing to get a Colorado title issued. They told me that it would be mailed to me in about three weeks. The reason I am telling you this is if you bought the car in June, I would think that the title would have been sent to you by now if everything that needed to be done had been done already. Definitely see what the dealer has to say.

Whoever owns the car has the title. The dealer should hold the title to the car since it was the owner.

I would contact the dealer. They should have sent over the title to you after you bought your car.

Why is it the DMV's fault? The dealer is supposed to give you the title within a short period of time of your funds clearing.

Thanks for the responses. I did call the dealer and they said that they have to send in paper work and then the county (?) issues the title in about 4-6 weeks of the paperwork being registered. So, should just be a matter of time until it is sent to me.

When I sold a car a few years ago I just signed over the title to the buyer. Maybe the dealer has some other responsiblity by law, but I would not be surprised if they are just going to delay giving you title for a month because they have it pledged to a Bank as collateral for a loan.

My title showed up in the mail today. I was at the DMV (Denver County) on Monday. Sounds like the dealer is dragging ass.
