This is an area of life/common sense at which I am not good, so bear with me. I have a nonfunctioning used car (needs transmission and a battery). It's currently parked on a surburban street with no meters, etc. I check on it every couple of days. It still has tags. I made my final payment on it a three weeks ago, and I have not gotten anything from my bank. I have the title, but I think they have a lien (right?). I expect I should get something from them saying "congrats, you're done, you own your car." But I have not yet, and I haven't been able to get to my shitty bank during work hours/get through their ridiculous phone system. I want to sell the car (for parts, I assume). In what order do I need to: Turn in the tags. Cancel the insurance. Sell the car. Also: Can I leave it parked on the street with no tags? I really don't like paying insurance on it, but I don't think I can cancel the insurance if it's still registered. Argh. Thanks, dad.
