Help me get my car title!
I live in WA state.
I took out an auto loan in 2010 for a $4k car. Made my payments on time and in 2012 I took my tax return and paid the rest of it off to save myself $TEXAS in interest. I paid cash at their office and got a receipt (that I now cannot find...) and they told me that they did not have the title on hand, and that they would mail it to me. I went about my merry way and completely forgot about it. When registering my car this spring I noticed that the title company is still listed as a lienholder for the vehicle. I assume that I can just give them a call or write them a letter and get this all cleared up, BUT before I initiate contact with them and possibly open up a can of worms, is there anything that absolutely should/should not do? They have never contacted me (I still live at the same adress) so I assume that someone just dropped the ball, but when I was googling them to get their phone number and addresss I was reading reviews about this company completely screwing people, so I just want to get all my ducks in a row as a precautionary measure.
TL/DR - I paid my car off in 2012 - Never got my title. Anything I should be wary of?
Thanks in advance for any advice you might have!
