Depending on the state the answer is no. If you are in CA, AZ, CO, NY I know you must disclose that the vehicle has a salvage title.

As a private seller you are selling the car as-is but if your car was recently totaled/salvaged but you sold the car with the old clean title, that would be unethical. If I purchased the car from you and later could prove you knew of the salvage title I would certainly sue you and would probably win!

What about a if someone sell me a "junk title" car without telling me, and I can show that they knew about it ?

Is it legal to sell used cars with no spare tires without telling the buyer?

It may not be illegal but IMO it is immoral. Why not just be an honest used car salesman and tell the buyer there is no spare tire? It is not like it is going to make or break the sale. We have enough dishonest people out there trying to get away with something and for sure do not need another one. Or why not just go to a salvage yard and get a spare for the car? Would you want a car dealer to do this to you?

Is it legal to sell a car without replacing deployed airbags?

nope as long as u notify the buyer that it has a deployrd air bag Legally you may be able to sell the car if you are not a dealer and you notify the buyer that the air bag is not functioning. But make sure you have a written release that the buyer and seller signs, indicating the SRS is not functional. Have this notarized and witnessed. Otherwise you may end up in a lawsuit. Personally, I would not take that chance, and would never sell a vehicle with the SRS deployed. Just not worth the risk of the buyer having an accident and then suing you for injuries he sustained due to the fact the air bag did not deploy. It has happened before and will happen again. Be smart and do not sell this car without repairing the SRS.

Salvage vehicles in Illinois can only be held by a licensed vehicle rebuilder, vehicle recycler or scrap processor or out of state salvage buyer and may not be driven on the road. If you are sold a salvage vehicle from a private party or Illinois dealer in the state of Illinois, the sale was not legal. Contact the Secretary of State Police for help.
