Quick Question smog check after mods?

If I buy a used Camaro with headers and all of that good stuff do I have to get it smogged to have it registered in California? If I buy from out of state.

If i'm not mistaken the "Seller" is responsible for making the car pass smog... so buying the car should be cake - the seller should have to pay for any parts necessary to pass smog in Cali.

If the vehicle bears the 50 state / California Certified label, then anyone selling a car to a resident of California or where registration in California takes place is responsible for smogging the vehicle and the costs of repairing a vehicle to pass smog.

If the vehicle bears the 49 state label, then it is the buyers problem for not verifying before hand unless they meet one of the few exemptions.

Question: Who is responsible for obtaining a Smog Check when a vehicle is sold?

Answer: Section 24007 (b)(2) of the Vehicle Code states it is the responsibility of the seller to provide a valid smog certificate at the time of delivery of the vehicle.

Question: I just purchased a vehicle and the seller did not provide a Smog Check certificate. The vehicle needs repairs in order to pass. What should I do?

Answer: Go back to the seller, inform them about Vehicle Code section 24007 (b)(2), and try to work things out amicably. If that fails, you have the option to pay for the repairs and the Smog Check yourself, and then take the seller to court to recover your costs. Although the law clearly supports the buyer, collecting on a court judgment can be difficult. The amicable solution is usually best. If the seller is a state-licensed auto dealer, buyers have the additional option of filing a complaint with the DMV, which regulates new- and used-car dealers.
