What are your rights if a dealership sells you a car that is listed as a stolen vehicle in the NCIC database?

My guess would be that they have to take it back and give you any money back that you paid. But the laws can be weird and it probably depends on the state you bought it in. You may be out of any money you paid and responsible for any money you owe. You'll have to look it up in your state or talk to the dealer and see what they tell you. You need to get onto it right away and get it taken care of. I'd personally, call the dealer and see what they say. If what they tell you makes you happy, leave it at that. If it doesn't, call the police and let them know what is going on. They may be able to help you.

Only if you are the spouse of the person listed on the title. Otherwise you have no rights to this vehicle.

ONLY if you are listed on the TITLE as co-owner. Othwise you have NO rights to possession, ONLY payment of the loan.

The 9th states that there are other rights that exists aside from the ones listed. No rights are listed.

No. A lender needs to have a "security interest" with anyone who has rights to the vehicle. If an owner is listed on the title they have the right to sell a vehicle. A lender does not want to be in a position where a non-borrower has rights over property used as collateral on a loan.

Whoever is named on the Certificate of Title has rights in the vehicle. Whoever is named on the Certificate of Title has rights in the vehicle. Whoever is named on the Certificate of Title has rights in the vehicle. Whoever is named on the Certificate of Title has rights in the vehicle.
