Hey guys! After a month as a foreigner in the lone star state, it has come to my attention that it is impossible to survive here without a car. I've found a car that I really want, but there's an issue that the collective wisdom of talkbass might just be able to help me out with. First things first: At 5000 USD it's a 2002 Dodge Durango, gray, v8, one owner, clean carfax report, in excellent condition (looks and drives flawlessly). I know the seller. The thing is that the car had to be jumpstarted cause it had been sitting in a garage for half a year without being used. Fair enough. Then I had the owner do the texas vehicle inspection thing, because it wasn't current. But for some reason beacuse of the jumpstart the computer (or something) had been restarted, and it has to run 70 miles first in order for it to pass! To me this doesn't make sense, since it's illegal to drive it without a current inspection, isn't it? How big a deal is this inspection thing anyway? Does it need to be current in order to transfer a title? The registration is current....I really like the car, I just wanna avoid any problems down the road. Oh, and btw, I'm in Houston, USPS just delivered the cheapest bass known to man, and life's good!
