    Default Bought A Car That Wont Pass Emissions Test In California

    I recently purchased a car from a private party in California. When I went to take it to get smogged it failed. I have since learned it is the responsibility of the owner to smog a car before it is sold. What are my legal rights in this situation?

    You can contact the person you purchased the car from. See if they will take the responsibilty for it. Or just go ahead and take the responsibilty to repair the vehicle to be able to pass emissions.

    If the previous owner refuses to pay for the repairs. Then you maybe able to take it to small claims.

    How ever depending on the cost of the repairs to get the vehicle to pass the smog test. It maybe easier and cheaper to pay for the repair yourself.
