Most car dealerships have their own mechanics and they do the minimal check-ups. It's wise (and you have the right) to take the vehicle into your own mechanic. It's worth the money and can save you a great deal of pain down the road. I live in British Columbia Canada and we have "Air Care" (big cash cow here) and every 2 years you have to pay to pass air care before getting your insurance. I am not sure if you have this in the U.S. Sure hope not!

What is the state you get to before getting to California?

The answer depends on which direction you are coming from, and what part of California you are going to. There are several states that border California. These include the following: Arizona, Nevada, and Oregon. If you are coming from Texas, for instance, then you will come through New Mexico and Arizona before you get to California. If you are coming from Washington State, you will go through Oregon first. If you are coming from Colorado you could choose to go through New Mexico and Arizona to get to Southern California, or Utah and Nevada to get to Northern California. (California also borders Mexico if you are coming up from South America.)

I'm a Oregon resident buying a car in California Do I owe California sales tax?

I just called the California DMV and asked this same question. To avoid the CA sales tax you need to either; 1. Flat bed the vehicle out of California and then register it in Oregon or 2. Have the dealer deliver it to you out of the state of California. (I'm thinking of having it delivered just across the border in Ashland.) Essentially, you can not operate the vehicle in California before it gets registered in Oregon. When I asked this question of auto dealerships they were totally confused. You will need to educate them . . . lol.
