What is your question? A car that has never been titled can still be sold as new, even if it is 1 or 2 years old. It is just a new car with mileage. Commonly called "Demonstrators". It might be easier to think of it this way: ALL new cars are untitled but not all UNTITLED cars are NEW. " Demos " or " Demonstrators " are new cars that have been used by the dealership( or one of its employees ) for a certain period of time and then returned to retail stock to be sold. There are certain special rules that apply to demos that vary by manufacturer but, provided they are current year ( 2005 )or newer (2006), they can be financed and warranted as " new " eventhough they may have a few thousand miles on the odometer. Once the CALENDAR year changes(January '06)then ALL the 2005 year models are one year old/used from the lender's/insurance co's perspective regardless of whether they've been titled or not. Again, there are certain exceptions with demos, but the situation in the car market is pretty much as described above. -David

Once they are repossesed by insurance companies and salvaged titled they will more than likely be resold if not demolished or sold for scrap depending on severity of the damage.

If the car has never been titled then it can be sold as new. A new car demonstrator or demo will often have as many as 5,000 miles on it and still sold as new.

You are responsible for the title because you were the one that traded the car. You say the vehicle was never titled. Go to the DMV with the vin number and see if the car was titled and you did receive. If it was then apply for a lost title. If it was never titled you will have to go back to the dealer where it was bought and get them to process the paperwork for the title.
