My daughter recently move from Puerto Rico to Texas. We

My daughter recently move from Puerto Rico to Texas. We tried to register her car that was shipped from Puerto Rico (a U.S. Territory) and the TXDOT is requesting a US Dot form HS-7 to complete the process. Apparently this form is a release requirement for vehicles imported from a foreign country but not for US Territories. The moving company responsible for the shipment confirmed that the HS-7 is not required. I will go back this Monday to try to register the car, but without any written documentation to show them that the form is waived, it will be very difficult to prove the point. I tried finding information on several US Government websites without any success. Can you help me?JA: What state is this in? And how old is the car?Customer: Texas. The car is 5 years oldJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Not yetJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: I don't think of any additional information. I found a Fact Sheet from Pennsylvania Dot that mentioned something about US territories being exempt from the imports regulations.

In December 2010 I had an accident while driving my 2005 Dodge

In December 2010 I had an accident while driving my 2005 Dodge Ram 1500. The accident occurred at a speed of about 40 mph when the vehicle (for unknown reasons) broke traction and spun around backwards, running off the road and rolling the truck. The truck was totaled by the insurance company. I was initially ticketed for negligent driver, but subsequently acquitted.I recently received a safety recall from Chrysler stating that "a rear axle pinion nut may have been built without an adhesive patch on the threads and that a loose pinion nut could cause the rear axle to seize and a separated driveshaft could cause a loss of motive power. Either situation could cause a crash without warning." The recall number is: P77/NHTSA 14v-796.There was much confusion about what caused the accident, as it seemed to happen for no reason. My question is, could this have been the cause, and without the truck to inspect, can I file a claim against Chrysler?

I moved to Wisconsin from Quebec 18 months ago I had

I moved to Wisconsin from Quebec 18 months ago I had problems importing my vehicle from Quebec to the US. Crossing the border in Port Huron, MI, with all the necessary papers, they told me I needed a Certificate of Title for my vehicle. Quebec does nothave Certificate of Title, just Certificate of registration. The Border agent said I was wrong and could not import my vehicle. After much research and many phone calls, I confirmed with Quebec officials that the Certificate of Registration was the correctdocument to import my vehicle. I spoke to a border agent at Port Huron again and explained what had happened and he said that a mistake was made and my vehicle should have been imported when I crossed the border with my Uhaul and other belongings. He suggestedI drive it back and they would process it. Port Huron is an*****one way from where I live. I was unable to take off 1 day of work from my new job to drive back to there to get it imported. My vehicle could legally be driven in the US for one year.The Quebec registration has now expired and I am not able to legally drive it anywhere to have it imported. Is there anyone that can advise me where to go for advice or assistance to import and register my vehicle in Wisconsin?
