Failure to register vehicle and deliver license plates in time required by law.
On aug. 21,2013 I purchased a 2006 Dodge Ram 3500 truck from Dow Chrysler Dodge Jeep. Sales tax,title application fee and registration fee was paid at time of sale. Dow Dodge was to take the paper work and fee to the county tax office and apply for title and register the truck. According to TXDMV they have a maximum of 45 days to to get this done. I called the sales rep. @ Dow Dodge the first week of October and inquired about my registeration.I told him that the temporary tags would expire on Oct.22,2013. He said that he would check and get back with me. No phone call or E-mail to this date (oct.22,2013 )On Oct.22,2013 I call and spore with the Gen. Mgr. of Dow Dodge.I informed him that the temp. tags would expire at Midnight( oct.22,2013)
and that I still didn't have my license plates. He said that he would check on it and placed me on hold. The sales rep came on the line and said they had the paper work but had not gone to the tax office. I told him that the temporary tags would expire at midnight and that it would be illegal for me to drive the truck. He said that I should get the new plates sometime the week of Oct 28th. I now have a truck that I can't drive because of their negligence.

Desired Settlement
Dealer to apply for title and registeration of
the truck immediatly and deliver all doucements and plates to me at my residence.
Dealer should also compensate me for not being able to drive my vehicle @ the rental rate for the same size and type of truck that I have for every day that it's illeagal for me to drive my vehicle.

Business Response

Customer purchased a vehicle that was owned by a sales rep, NOT Dow Chrysler Dodge Jeep. It was his personal vehicle that we were trying to sell on consignment for him. Customer purchased the vehicle on 8/21 from the rep who works at Dow Chrysler Dodge Jeep. The rep had a lien on the truck from a credit union in Tyler Tx. Once the vehicle was paid off and title was sent to us it was around October 23rd. We had to wait on the credit union to release the title and mail the title to our Mineola location. It was brought to our attention that customer hadn't received his license plates yet and the temporary plates were expiring. The offer was made to customer to issue a new temporary license plate but he wanted his metal permanent tags. Oct 23rd at 1:30 pm customer was called at both numbers that we have on file and left him a message trying to get in contact with him to deliver his temporary tags to him. At 1:35pm on October 23rd he read an email that was sent to him stating that his license plates will be available for him to pick up on October 25th. He responded to the email stating that he will be up to pick them up first thing in the morning on Friday Oct 25th. On Friday October 25th he came and picked up his license plates at approximately 7:30 AM.

Dow Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram was waiting on the title to his truck from the credit union in Tyler to be able to process the tax work on his truck. Once we received the title we were able to get his license plates with a few days of receiving the title. We offered him to replace the expiring temporary tags with a valid temporary tag while we were waiting on the tax work.

Final Consumer Response
His response is not completely accurate, but it will do. I have my plates and registration so we can consider the case closed as far as I'm concerned.
