    Ronald, every vehicle should have a vehicle title. That being said, in the state of Georgia there are a lot of older records that are pre 1985 that have not necessarily been transitioned into digital databases so it’s important to hold onto paperwork such as a vehicle title or deed to a house. It makes it a lot less complicated when buying or selling any assets or property

    I purchased a 2020 Infiniti Q50 3.0T with a salvaged title from an individual in Duluth. The car was totaled due to suspected “flood damage:. When I bought it, it only had 200 miles on it. I had it inspected by a Georgia State certified inspector and it passed and I was told there was no sign of water damage and that it looked like a brand new car and I was getting a great deal. I also had it inspected by a certified auto mechanic and was told the same thing. 2 months later I was filling it up with gad and went to start it and it wouldn’t start, I had my insurance tow it to Nalley Infiniti of Atlanta and was told the engine was shot due to water damage. A used engine is going to cost me $10,880.51. It has 4100 miles on it. Do have any kind of case against this individual for what has happened? He stated car was on a rack protected from any water as a show car. After inspections I thought It was a great deal, come to find out this individual did not tell me the whole truth about the cars shape. Do I have any grounds to go after this individual? Or have anything done?
