Dealer Admits to Selling Recalled Vehicles

By Staff Writer June 14, 2018

A Kansas used-car dealer has entered into a consent judgment with the local district attorney based on allegations he failed to disclose safety recalls and attempted to disclaim implied warranties.


The agreement between Thomas Bland, owner of Quality Automotive Group LLC, and the Sedgwick County District Attorney’s Office calls for him to pay $16,035.68 in civil penalties, restitution, court costs, and fees. The agreement also requires Bland to check all his vehicles for recalls, fully disclose any recalls before selling the cars to consumers and provide proper written Buyers Guides as required by law.


The District Attorney’s Consumer Protection Division alleged Bland failed to disclose three safety recalls and was distributing an improper Buyers Guide.
Bland admitted the allegations.
