State Suspends Dealer’s License

State Suspends Dealer’s License Featured

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.
Laws requiring detailed recordkeeping protect against the sale of stolen vehicles and parts, and ensure the vehicle buyer receives a clear and valid title to prove ownership.
