    Default NYS inspection for salvage car out of state?

    well i bought a car that was salvage from PA and brought it over here , fixed it. regristered it. a few weeks later, a letter came in about the car need to be inspected.
    i got some knowledge about this, but not all of it. it would cost me 150 bones and they would inspected it like a usual inspection and run the VIN.(for stolen parts, etc.)
    Im trying to prepare for this and want to know what to exspect and do.
    has anyone done this before? my tranny grinds and the clutch pedal isnt soo great. wil it pass?

    Was the car salvaged in PA? or was it in a wreck and u bought it clean titled and repaired it?


    Because if it already had a salvage PA title you would have been stopped at the DMV immediately from registering the vehicle and told to fill out a bunch of paperwork in regards to applying for the NYS Salvage/Rebuilt title and then waited 8 mos. til they had an open day. In any event...

    The salvage inspection is for stolen parts/matching vins/etched vins. It also checks vehicle safety....like air bags and other manufacturer/govt. mandated safety features....It is in no way a normal inspection where they flash your lights and check your brakes and tires. In fact u have to have that "normal" annual inspection done before you go through the salvage inspection.

    If you have any questions PM me or whatever...I have been through the entire process start to finish and I would never do it again.

    Its not that bad. My old man sends 2-3 cars a year threw it. Usually takes him around a month to get an appointment although there are times it does take several months to get in there.. My DD is a salvage title.

    Not without the inspection being done first

    I can run a carfax for you if you want. PM me the VIN. I also don't think you can pass an inspection normally with the SRS light on.

    Agreed.
    Little know fact - I once owned a focus.
    that inspection is a ball buster
    They wanted reciepts for proof of work completed and had to be back in "new" condition
    PITA

    when u get a Title(salvage) inspection In NYS they have your car for usually a full day, look it over run most if not all the parts so see if stolen
    -If something does happen to come up stolen, guess what they keep your car
    And for every part you have on your car that you used to fix it you HAVE to have a recpit for it. If u don't you pay $25 per part. I've gone threw the inspection a few times, and my dad has built totals for 20 years--- no real probs ever..... hope this helps some way

    When I failed because my car was not rebuilt with the proper airbag computer...they made me get the computer installed...provide reciept and then re apply for the test which took another 2 mos.

    It is pretty much right next to CVS/Wendy's on Dingens.
