I actually called Texas DOT. The last record in the Carfax shows a title or ownership issued. That record shows no lien or loan reported. The DOT lady said that the vehicle is clean if the last record is the history is clean. Here's the last record:

04/03/2000 Texas
Motor Vehicle Dept.
Dallas, TX
Title #00022200052464632
Title or registration issued


So I'm assuming that the car title is clean then......... :confused:

I would think so . . . if you talked to the Texas DOT . . .

I would NOT trust Texas DOT!

If you're talking about steers or cattle rather than cars, then you're OK.
Otherwise, I'd stay the hell away from a car that's from there.

Not that the Ontario system is any better!

OTOH, if you do buy it, and bring it to Canada, what could a lien-holder do? Send a posse after you, and lynch you?
Yep, they probably will!

Seriously, I don't think you want a car from there on the account of Texas DOT.

You look at the last record in the Carfax report. a lien or loan could mean the car was leased or financed. however when it transfers owners you'll see that it should either go away or be reissued. so the last one means the current owner. hope that helps.
