Agree. This is the 12-15 new car I have purchased. Never heard of a week delay due to this?Don't understand why the dealer can't issue a temporary paper plate and deliver the jeep as long as the title and registration fee is paid by you. The dealer would then have 30/60/90 days depending on which state you are in to register and obtain permanent plates.
Not looking to place blame. As i said in all my years of purchasing new vehicles, I never heard of this.they need the Certificate of Origin to complete the paperwork. You would be more upset if they let you have the vehicle and the paper work was messed up due to some snafu if the Certificate of Origin was lost and you could not register or insure it. Don't blame the dealer blame FCA.
I have been buying new vehicles since 1975 and everyone has a certificate of manufacture. You don't generally get to see the copy as your dealer records it and then sends it to the DMV. If they fall in the wrong hands a title without a lien can be applied for that is why you never see them. I always ask for a photocopy at my DMV and they will give you one but it is after the lien info is recorded. Generally FCA would send the CO before they vehicle arrived on the dealer lot but things happen.Not looking to place blame. As i said in all my years of purchasing new vehicles, I never heard of this.
