A Florida Chevrolet dealer will pay more than $1 million for failing to pay off liens on trade-ins as the state kicks off a campaign to combat auto fraud.

Florida’s attorney general and the state’s Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles partnered to launch the #SteerClearOfFraudOAG campaign on Aug. 5. The weeklong consumer awareness campaign is designed to warn Florida drivers about various types of automotive fraud.

The campaign’s kick off announcement included details about a settlement with Riverside Chevrolet LLC of Jacksonville and its owner, Andrew Ferguson, to pay consumer restitution of $1,215,219. The money is intended to pay off liens on vehicles traded in to the dealership between August 2017 and August 2018.

The state’s suit accused the dealership of not paying off previous liens on trade-ins, failing to pay state sales taxes and failing to pay employee withholding taxes. 

Riverside Chevrolet LLC also must pay $235,000 in civil penalties to the state, with over $58,000 of the penalties imposed for violations involving seniors, and $15,000 for the Attorney General’s attorney’s fees.

The agreement also includes a permanent injunction barring Andrew Ferguson from owning, operating, or managing an automobile dealership in Florida at any time in the future. 

CarMax Inc. announced its new personalized car buying experience is now available to CarMax customers in Florida.

Customers can now choose to complete the entire car-buying experience from home and have the car delivered, including the ability to test drive, prior to purchase.

The new personalized experience is now available in Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, Tampa, Orlando, Ft. Myers, Naples, and Jacksonville. The service launched at the end of June in Gainesville, Pensacola and Tallahassee.
