That doesnt sound right. I've gotta do some more checking.
Any vehicle with less than 7500 miles is considered "new" by CA DMV. If you purchase a new vehicle outside of CA and you are a resident of CA the vehicle must meet CA/50-State emission requirements.

I've "heard" what the DMV rep stated, but their own website does not seem to state you cannot bring it into CA.

Here's the CA DMV website page that talks about this topic: Before Buying a Vehicle From Out of State
