Question: In Az is it illegal for a used car dealership to sell a vehicle that had not yet been emissioned tested first? I have read on the Arizona Dept. of Enviromentak Quality page that they do,does this mean the contract I signed is technically void? Please dont judge me as i have had other repos and garnishments for them and they have all been paid for. i bought the car in late december 2012 and it wasnt till late feb. 2013 when they finally had to do an emissions test as my license plate wouldnt be mailed off till it was done. Thanks for any help with this.

Answer: ARS 49-541- 558 governs emissions inspections. While the ADEQ states that the dealer must provide the vehicle after it passes an emissions test, prior to delivering it to the purchaser, there are exemptions. In regards to the contract being void, there are certain exceptions that could render a contract void. Please refer to a licensed attorney for advice about whether the circumstance at hand calls for the contract to be rendered void. The lawyer referral service can be reached at 602-257-4434.Also, wwww.azdeq.gov does provide resources for filing a complaint in regards to the lack of emissions testing.
