So I was trying to re-register my car today since my registration expires 12/12/16. However, I get notice that I can't re-register in California until my car gets fixed and taken off recall.

Worst yet...
RECALL STATUS: Recall INCOMPLETE. Remedy not yet available.

So now I'm stuck without a car until it gets fixed. :doh::frusty:


UPDATE:

Short story…
Spent about 2 hours with the DMV and told them the whole story.
They said I could pay my registration, but not issue my car tags. No reason why.
Uh, ok.
We don’t register these types of vehicles here.
Uh, what??? What do you mean… “these types of vehicles”??? You just said I could pay here.
Later that night I decided to go online and try to register again. This was Wed, 12/7 last week.
Guess what… it worked! I was able to pay my fees, but no guarantee they’d send my tags.

My tags and registration where in my mailbox this morning!!!

Still no idea why I couldn’t register or why I couldn’t register in person.

I'd get a loaner from your dealer until such time the car is fixed. Demand it do to the circumstances.

This might not be just a California issue as the Recall is Nationwide. If your State uses NHTSA data, then you might have the same issue if your registration is due before the recall fix. :doh:

Did you do it online or in-person? You might have better luck if you try it in person at the DMV.

I would also ask for car payments to be made until the vehicle is repaired since this is out of your hands why should you make payments for a car you cannot drive legally anymore because of the open recall with no actual repair date known.

Doesn't matter... I hold California accountable for ALL NHTSA data use/abuse. :headbonk:

I like to disassemble things.
Was this online or in the office?
Just what I was wondering. More specifics please, including the statute they cite as to why.
