The answer to your question depends on more facts than just who holds title. The rule that everyone seems to ignore is that one spouse cannot make a gift of community property to himself or herself. There are issues here such as when the car was acquired (during marriage?), what it was purchased with, and whether the parties entered into a written transmutation agreement.
