State Suspends Dealers for Lack of Operations

By Staff Writer June 04, 2019

The Michigan Department of State has suspended the licenses of two Oakland County used-vehicle dealerships after the dealerships were discovered closed and regulation agents were unable to inspect dealership records.


Department of State regulatory staff attempted to conduct an inspection at Briggs Auto Group, 13001 Capital St., Oak Park, on March 14. The dealership, owned by Phyllis Briggs and Dustin Barlow, no longer was occupying the property and had been replaced with another business.


No one was present to provide the records, as required by law. Therefore, violations were written for noncompliance. The suspension was served May 10.


Department of State regulatory staff attempted to conduct an inspection at Memory Lane Autos Inc., 2287 E. West Maple Road, Commerce Township, on April 25. The dealership, owned by Carl Ryan, wasn’t open and didn’t have any vehicles for sale.


No one was present to provide records, as required by law. Violations were written for noncompliance.


The suspension was served May 8, and the department received a change of address form from the dealer May 23.
