Re: Do you get the title of a pre-owned car right away when paying in cash?

i bought my '08 CS used in April, paid via cash, they do not give you the title immediately. i've never bought a used car at a major dealership and they've given me the title the same day. they have to put it in for processing. my family has bought about a 1/2 dozen cars that way and it's all taken 2weeks to a month depending on if you're buying in-state or out-of-state. of course, out-of-state purchases take a bit longer. but once the state gets the paper work, it's only a few weeks.
