My husband and I are headed to WA from KY next month. We have a 1991 Buick that my husband doesn't use much and needs some fixing up. I would rather sell it and take our best offer. My husband's sister and her husband have expressed interest in wanting the car. I have absolutely no problem with giving them the car; I'll even let them have it for free so long as they are willing to have the car title transfered under their name. But my husband wants to let them drive the car with the veichle still registered to him. I don't see the point because I know he's not ever going to ask for the car back. He thinks it'll be too expensive since for them to do that since they are having some financial problems right now.
I don't feel comfortable letting someone drive a car that we no longer want registered in my husband's name. If my SIL or her husband would get into a car accident would we be legally responsible for anything even if it's insured under their name? I'm just worried that if something happens/someone does something illegal with the car, we will be held liable since it's registered in my husband's name. Is my husband asking for trouble if he leaves the car in his name while his sister drives it?
