    The Michigan Secretary of State suspended the license of a Muskegon used-vehicle dealer after consumer complaints led department investigators to the discovery of violations.
    Several consumers who had purchased vehicles from Arizona Charlie’s Auto & Truck Sales in Muskegon complained that the dealership had not sought titles and registrations within the required 15 days of vehicle delivery. When an investigator from the department’s Office of Investigative Services visited the dealership, the owner could not provide required paperwork for several vehicles that had been sold.
    A summary suspension was served on the dealer on March 7, at which time he surrendered his license.

  • State Suspends Dealer for Selling Temporary Registrations

    The Michigan Secretary of State has suspended the license of Miller Used Cars after an investigation with area law enforcement found multiple violations including the alleged illegal sale of temporary vehicle registrations.
    The investigation began after the Michigan State Police informed the Secretary of State’s Office of numerous traffic stops involving vehicles displaying temporary registrations, often called paper plates, allegedly issued by the Flint dealership. The drivers of the vehicles each provided statements indicating the temporary registrations had been purchased illegally and were also unable to provide sufficient vehicle purchase documentation.
    Secretary of State investigators conducted an inspection of Miller Used Cars, with assistance from the Genesee Area Investigations Network. Upon inspection, investigators found that dealership staff could not provide requested records, could only account for 7 of 385 temporary registrations purchased, and could not account for more than 60 vehicles, even though they had the vehicle titles in possession.
