Let me see if I can help and please rate 5 stars. If something, including a car is given to you as a gift then the items is yours. A gift is not supposed to have any required obligations that the recipient has to adhere to including actions or giving something back to the gift giver. The legal term for these special demands is collateral. When someone gives another person a gift, the gift becomes the personal property of the recipientAs such the car belongs to you. I hope this helps and please rate 5 stars
