    Default Unable to Obtain a Copy of an Auto Title

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

    Currently a resident of Colorado. My wife's car was purchased and registered in New York 16 years ago. The car has been paid off for 10+ years and we cannot find the title. It was co-signed by her father but he doesn't have it. We attempted to get a copy of the title from the State of New York but they no longer have the title. The goal is to simply donate the car to charity. How do I go about getting a copy or even a new title for the car? Any ideas or help would be appreciated.

    Was the car not ever registered in Colorado? If not why?

    The car is registered in Colorado (since 2010 approx.) but the CO DMV sent us to the NY DMV since the car was originally purchased there. Thanks for the reply, btw.

    I have a coworker with the same issue. Bought the car in NY, moved to WA and needed a copy of the title. NY said they didn't know anything about it/him though his car had been registered there and they can't help him and now he's stuck and there isn't much he can do except get a bonded title.

    CO has bonded titles available but if you plan to donate the vehicle I don't know that any charity will accept a bonded title. For a bonded title to convert to a regular title the bonded must have been valid for for three years from the date of issuance.

    That's not right. You had get a CO title when registered the car there.

    Well... Maybe I asked my question incorrectly or there was a misunderstanding? I shall re-engage the CO DMV on this point.
