    Default Traded Cars, But The Other Guy Won't Agree to Undo the Trade

    My question involves vehicle registration or title in the state of:


    I traded my car it was a salvage title vehicle for another car which is a clean title and It's Salvaged in another state but he did not tell me.

    I am not satisfied with this vehicle & it was a private party trade.

    So here here is the rest of story.

    I bought the car from someone but he sent the release of the title under my name & I traded the car we exchanged the titles I did not get the new title from my previous vehicle under my name.

    My question is:

    Can I get my car back since the release of title was under my name?

    This is in State of California.


    Thanks! Any help would great it has been about 15 days since trade.

    If you believe you can prove he committed fraud, you can sue him in small claims court. Presumably the damages would be the difference in the fair market value of the car you traded to him and the fair market value of the car he gave to you in exchange.

    Did you have anything in writing in relation to this transaction? If so, exactly what did the written agreement say?

    We did not sign any kind of agreement transactions. His craigslist ad said the car was a clean title & the car was running healthy.

    Now the car over heats, and I carfaxed the car it said it was salvaged in the state of Arizona. He told me it was never involved in an accident & it showed that he bought the car from Auction. My car was salvaged & it said salvaged I sent him pictures.
