  • State Shuts Down Dealer for Selling Unsafe Cars

    A Massachusetts used-car business will cease operations and its owner will pay restitution after they were sued for selling unsafe and unreliable used cars, failing to make repairs that were promised or required under warranties, and operating in unlicensed locations.
    The consent judgment resolves allegations that Auto Number One, Inc. and its owner Mark Hanna routinely made false representations to consumers that cars were in good working order or would be repaired.
    Pursuant to the settlement, Auto Number One will cease all operations in Massachusetts.
    The company and Hanna will also pay nearly $25,000 in consumer restitution. An additional $85,000 in civil penalties and attorneys’ fees will be suspended pending the defendants’ compliance with the terms of the consent judgment.
    According to the AG’s complaint, Auto Number One frequently sold vehicles that failed to pass inspection and refused to provide refunds or make repairs or promised to make repairs but then did not do so. Additionally, the complaint alleged that Auto Number One retained vehicles during consumers’ seven-day inspection period, so that consumers would be unable to exercise their rights under the Lemon Aid Law.
    Consumers reported a variety of issues with their vehicles from Auto Number One, including lack of heat, oil and other fluid leaks, a broken catalytic converter, and transmission issues.
    Auto Number One has operated out of locations in Weymouth, Quincy, and Abington. The AG’s complaint alleged that Auto Number One advertised and sold vehicles from locations where it was not licensed to do so, including a location on Washington Street in Weymouth and on Adams Street in Quincy.
