So I'm new to the forum and I've joined for the very reason that I'm in process of purchasing a reconditioned vehicle and I need some clarification with something. This is my first vehicle so I’m not very familiar in terms of the formalities.
The vehicle I intend on purchasing is a Honda Civic ES 1 VTIS A – (YOM 2001)
The issue that I'm having is that when I took the vehicle in for valuation, I was told by the valuation center that the vehicle chassis number and the country of origin wasn’t tallying. To elaborate on this further, the chassis number is a Japanese chassis number but the country of origin reads as Singapore.
So I took this up with the seller of the vehicle and he informed me that this can be amended at the RMV after a process. He wasn’t aware of this until I brought it up.
What I like to know is that is the following:
Does this mistake of “country of origin” occur with the RMV?
Will this book amendment in any way affect the resale vehicle of the vehicle?
Should I go ahead and purchase this vehicle or do you think there has been some illegalities with the documentation in order to avoid taxes or is this is genuine mistake by the RMV?
Very much looking forward to your responses as I really like this vehicle since it has been maintained at Stafford throughout and is in excellent condition.
