INCORRECT INFORMATION ON AUTO TITLES (SEGMENT 3)





Common Auto Title Mistake Issues Series
Incorrect Information on Auto Titles (Segment 3)



While a title and registration seals the deal of a purchase and ownership for your vehicle; it's the information or data on the title and registration that must be highly regarded.

In this third segment of the Common Auto Title Mistake Issues Series, focus will be on incorrect information on vehicle titles/registrations.  Areas that will be covered are: types of incorrect vehicle information that can be present on a title/registration, consequences of having incorrect information on a vehicle title/registration and tips for help in avoiding having incorrect vehicle information on your title/registration.

TYPES OF INFORMATION THAT CAN BE INCORRECT ON A VEHICLE TITLE/REGISTRATION:

The most common areas on a title/registration that may contain incorrect information pertaining to the vehicle are:

A. The VIN
B. Description of the Vehicle
C. Vehicle's Weight
D. Number of Axles
E. Vehicle Branding

To elaborate further, more insight is taken for the above factors:

VIN:The VIN of a vehicle that is incorrect will usually be short of  a digit or multiple digits and or have may have a combination of the wrong numbers and or letters present in the VIN.
Note: Keep in mind that any vehicle's manufactured from 1981 to now; must contain 17 digits, versus the typical 7 or 11 digits that were present before that time.


Description of the Vehicle: Areas of the vehicle's description that can have incorrect information are: the Year, Make, Model, Body and Color.  In essence the wrong year, wrong make, wrong body type and  or color could be present on the title or registration.


Vehicle's Weight: The vehicle's weight is oftentimes the most overlooked area on a title or registration, because it's something that most vehicle owners don't really pay attention to; unless you are in the commercial motor vehicle industry (WHERE IT MATTERS).  When regarding the vehicle's weight, it's important to notice the empty weight (base weight of a vehicle including the equipment and parts on and within it-set by the manufacturer, but excluding the passengers and cargo) and the gross weight (maximum of weight set for the vehicle by manufacturers that includes passengers and cargo).

Number of Axles: The number of axles on a motor vehicle is another area that is easily targeted for mistakes, because some people don't give attention to what an axle is and the appropriate number that is applicable for the vehicle type.  For instance; some trailers have 1 axles, while commercial trailers have 3 or more and standard passenger vehicles (excluding limos and buses) have two axles.


Vehicle Branding: Regarding vehicle branding, the first thing to note is whether you should have a brand on your title/registration from the start.  If so, it's important that the correct brand is stated; repaired, rebuilt, irreparable, etc.



CONSEQUENCES FOR HAVING INCORRECT VEHICLE INFORMATION ON YOUR TITLE/REGISTRATION:

Having incorrect information on a vehicle title or registration, such as the above factors can cause the following consequences:

A. Ownership of the Vehicle can Be Questionable, if a major issue such as the VIN and description of the vehicle is incorrect on the title and registration card.

B. Vehicle Registration and License Plate costs can be affected significantly if the axle and or the weight of the motor vehicle item is incorrect.  In the area of commercial vehicles, citations, and FMCSA/DOT compliance issues can arise, if the axle and or weight amount is incorrect! Note: registration and license plate fees are usually based on the number of axles and the weight of the vehicle. 

C. Personal Property Tax Charges (if applicable), can be accessed incorrectly if incorrect vehicle information is present on the title/registration record.




TIPS FOR AVOIDING INCORRECT VEHICLE INFORMATION ON A TITLE/REGISTRATION:

The following will keep you away from the aggravation of having incorrect information on your title/registration:

1. When receiving the title from the seller; ensure that the vehicle's information on the title matches the physical overview of the vehicle; i.e. VIN, year, make, color, axles, etc.

2. Ensure that the information on your title and or registration is correct before leaving the DMV!  Note: Failing to review your title and registration right away, opens the door for delays, and costly consequences later.
