BRUNSWICK, OHIO -- Bought a used car from Brunswick Auto Mart. Two weeks later, the dealership mailed us a letter stating that the plates on the car (which were supposedly transferred), were illegal. They stated that we must get an e-check and obtain new plates. Why didn't the dealer tell us this when we bought the car? We have been driving around thinking everything was legal. The letter they sent us was unprofessional and had a handwritten note at the bottom of the text stating that the plates are not registered.

The salesman will not talk to us about this. I am awaiting a call back from the manager. If the issue is ignored, I will be taking this to a news network for all of northest Ohio to see.

The dealership should have given you a 30-day tag with the car, to allow you to get the E check and your plates transferred. It's your responsibility, not the dealer's, to transfer the license plates and registration from the old car to the new one. I once thought the dealer took care of this as well, when I realized, upon going to an Ohio BMV office, that I was driving the car for 9 months on my previous car's registration. Fortunately, I wasn't stopped by the police during this time-the plates would have come out as "fictitious".
