If you do donate your car, be sure to save the receipt and do what you can to get the title out of your name or show your state's DMV that the car is no longer yoursI don't think this is an issue here in Maryland. When you donate the car to a charity, you sign the title over to them. Then you remove the tags and return them to the Dept of Motor Vehicles (within 24 hrs) and get a receipt, showing car disposed of and tags returned. Then notify your insurance company to get off that hook. I would assume that most states have a similar procedure. But MarkOYoung's right - you do have to cross the t's and dot the i's, lest something come back to bite you. I do know a fellow who donated a car to a charity and was subsequently visited by the state police because the car had been used for some nefarious purpose. Fortunately he had what he needed to establish that the car was no longer his'n. Lorenzo
