I recently bought a used pick-up truck in New Jersey. I got it home and found there was no dmv inspection sticker on the windshield, and no mention of motor vehicle inspection in any of the documents. Can anyone tell me what is the dealer's responsibility for inspection when selling a used car?

I can't say what the dealer's responsibility would be, but my advice would be to just head to a state run inspection station (free) and get it done. You'll probably just give yourself a headache trying to fight with the dealer.

Its your responsibility and it is free.

GL they are usually pretty thorough and ALWAYS look at emissions, ALL lights (even small ones like license plates) and brakes.

On 3 inspections they made sure power windows worked on 2. Checked the suspension on this shaking thing on 1.

as soon as you get your registration, license plates and current insurance card take it to a state inspection facility. as far as the dealer goes they dont have to do anything unless they told you that they gaurentee inspection and most dont unless you are getting some type of warantee

If the car is older than 2 years (If I recall), the dealer cannot give it an inspection. You have to do it. The police will not bother you while you have temp license and registration. You are suppose to get it inspected no later than 10 days after the expiration of the temp license/plate.

I generally will hold on to my new plates/registration until I am at the station. Put them on and then head in for inspection.

If the car is older than 22 years, it can be exempt from inspection.

If you're not required, the judge will toss it. Cops probably write things to justify themselves.

Just noticed this From State of New Jersey - Motor Vehicle Commission

Beginning August 1, 2010, purchasers of used, non-commercial vehicles purchased in or out of New Jersey will no longer require an inspection until they are at least five model years old:
Vehicles purchased without a New Jersey inspection sticker will receive a decal valid until the last day of the month of registration, five years from the vehicle model year
Vehicle owners will receive Form SS-19 at the time of registration
Visit a state-operated inspection station with a valid registration card, NJ insurance ID card, driver license and Form SS-19
In addition, effective August 1, 2010, New Car Dealers will be allowed to issue new vehicle stickers to used non-commercial vehicles less than five (5) model years old
Used vehicles with a valid sticker are not required to be inspected until the month and year of the noted expiration date

Yes, cars made for model years 1995 and older are exempt from nj inspection due to no OBDII port present. OBDII PORTS were installed for 1996 cars and newer. NJ only inspects emissions via OBDII ports....no more tail pipe, brakes, headlights, suspension, etc. I saw a car, not a jeep, but a car with a missing door pass inspection!
