Not sure about thhe jumping the title thing but in our state, all motor vehicle dealers are title agents and are required by law to fill out and send in paperwork on your behalf at point of sale. When I purchased my S class in Tennessee, they filled out my Alabama title and sent it in. Our titles are relatively inexpensive here, $19.50.
As for the condition of the car, you should've never drove it off until you had it checked out. Buy here, pay here lots are notorious for selling subpar vehicles in poor mechanical condition because they know that you may become frustrated with repair costs which leads to non payment and him repossessing it. Then he will patch it up and sell it to some other unsuspecting buyer. It actually benefits them to sell you a crappy car. It happens here all the time.
