no....
the dealership signed over documents to us.. Oswaldo and I (Michelle).. exception The owner of the dealership said that because my credit score was bad that we shouldn't put my name on the contract. (so I have a separate contract between my boyfriend and I (just a written agreement I had him write, noting that I would be making half of the payments, etc.) just a personal written agreement.
THe dealership asked us to come back within three weeks to get the smog done.. I went to his shop within five days. he was very hard to get ahold of ... anyways..
police pulled me over, pulled off my dealer plates and underneath where plates (unregistered) from previous owner prior to dealer to a guy named pedro..
