Well really the Texas DMV should have rejected the filing as, from my understanding, the CoO didn't match the bill of sale. (At least in Oregon they would have rejected the transaction.) And if the CoO matched the bill of sale, then the bill of sale was made out to a person different than who was filing for the title. Another no-no.Tesla sent the title and paperwork for his car to another person who registered it and now he can’t register his car. That’s entirely Teslas fault and the fact this has taken more than a week to sort out let alone 6 months is unacceptable. The only thing more FUBAR’d than his situation is your post. If a slang term offends your morality so much I suggest not going on the internet.
So it seems that both Tesla and Texas screwed up on this one. (As well as the other customer who should've have noticed the problem and got it fixed before taking the paperwork to the DMV.)
