State Sues Dealer for Unlicensed Operations
A Massachusetts used-car dealer has been sued by the state’s attorney general for allegedly selling unsafe and unreliable used cars, failing to make repairs, which were promised or required under warranties, and operating in unlicensed locations.
The complaint against Auto Number One Inc. and its owner Mark Hanna, alleges that they routinely made false representations to consumers that cars were in good working order or would be repaired, about prices charged, and about warranty periods. The business allegedly failed to issue refunds to consumers who attempted to return vehicles after discovering, within days, substantial defects which made the cars unfit for the road.
