AG Sues Defunct Dealer for Missing Titles Featured

By Staff Writer March 06, 2019 520

The Ohio Attorney General filed a consumer protection lawsuit against a used-car dealership and its owner accused of failing to deliver vehicle titles to consumers in northwest Ohio.
The lawsuit accuses Budget Motors & RV Sales LLC and Michael Stevens, its owner and operator, of violating Ohio consumer protection laws.

According to the lawsuit, the dealership last operated at 115 West Kiracofe Ave. in Elida.
Two consumer complaints were filed against the dealership, with consumers alleging they never received the titles to vehicles they bought from Budget Motors & RV Sales.

The Ohio Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Section worked to resolve the complaints, in both cases making payments from the Title Defect Recision Fund - a program that helps used car buyers resolve certain title problems - to the consumers who could not obtain their titles.
The Attorney General’s lawsuit seeks to recover more than $8,000 that was paid from the Fund in the case. It also seeks reimbursement for affected consumers, an order prohibiting further violations of Ohio’s consumer protection laws, civil penalties, and other relief.
