It could mean that money is owed on the car and you could lose it if the person defaults. Or it could mean that there is a mistake and the lienholders neglected to discharge the lien. Whatever the case is, don't buy a car that has any liens on it. If you already bought it, contact the lienholder to see if the lien can be discharged.
