Why are there laws, if there are no penalties to accompany them?
I just had a horrible experience. We received a notice that emissions are past due. We just got them done last week. The registration renewal is in November because we bought the vehicle 2 years ago in November. Now, the state says we owe a late fee for not having the emissions done on time. The state worker looked up the info and said emissions was due July 2009 (2 years before we bought it), and the vehicle was sold to us non-compliant. The law says the vehicle must be sold compliant, but there is no penalty if it is not. We were given fraudulent papers at the sale!
Even if there is no penalty for selling a non-compliant car, that doesn't mean a seller can knowingly lie about the status of the vehicle. That is fraud. If you have paperwork to prove it, that would seem to be a pretty clear case of fraud.
Thanks junkseller! I'm just beside myself right now. I've contacted motor vehicles, the attorney general, and the dept that oversees licensed dealers. It's not just about a late fee, but it's failed emissions now as well.
I think I'd be contacting a lawyer if I were you. Fixing emissions can get pricey very quickly. If the test was close, there are often some simple things you can do: premium gas, hotter car, etc. Find a shop that will give you some suggestions.
