Is it strange that dealer is reluctant to provide bill of sale?

I recently bought my new 2011 Wee. It's been some time since I purchased a new vehicle, but I'm fairly certain that I should get a bill of sale that itemized purchase price, taxes paid, etc. I financed through Suzuki and got the loan document which shows only the total paid (including side bags and rack).

When I called the dealer, he said that loan paperwork is all I get. It has the amount financed. I told him that I itemize my taxes and thought I should get a bill of sale that included purchase price separate of taxes. He said "no." But he did offer to screen print the DMV (California department of motor vehicles) numbers.

Am I the only one that finds this strange?

Well, as I recall, normally YOU pay the taxes as the buyer. But, if you paid the taxes/reg fees to the seller to handle for you (since it was a dealer....I think they can do this or must do this?)..you should have received a receipt from them and a copy of ALL paperwork. If you didn't, something seems odd.

Sounds like your dealer knows he's going out of business soon.
I'd look around for another palce to do your maintenance and pray your bike doesn't get reposessed.

I agree. You better act now or else you'll loose your money and your bike.

Just worry about the Title. In Cali should you get a title showing a lien holder or does Suzuki get to keep the title till its paid off.

In CT and NY on ly the title matters

MY experience the bank get the title till you pay off the loan, all you get is the loan documents, the bank owns the bike, In my state, NH you get a title application showing bank as lein holder that you use to register the vehicle

usually after loan is paid it takes bank a couple weeks to send you the title

Every motorcycle I sold went out the door with a complete, detailed bill of sale, along with copies the loan paperwork, DMV forms, warranty information, etc.

Why wouldn't the dealer want you to have a detailed bill of sale? Even Burger King gives you that.

Go hakafugu yourself.

Just go straight to the source ( DMV in your state) and ask them. I am sure if there are irregulars in your transaction they can get it straighten out for you. No brainer..............

I know here in Illinois we sign a separate sales tax form which shows the amount of sales tax paid and we receive a copy of this form.

Did you negotiate a total price or a monthly payment? If the dealer took you for a monthly payment, you may find that you paid over MSRP for the bike. Use the calculator at https://www.dmv.ca.gov/wasapp/FeeCal...VehicleFees.do
to figure out what the sales tax and licensing fees should have been.
