Divulging Unscrupulous Business Practices in Bad Car Dealerships

By Erwin Calverley Subscribe to RSS | April 18th 2012 | Views:

Recently, the Department of Motor Vehicles put the final nail in the coffin of a car dealership in Milton, Vermont. This is after allegations of questionable business practices that has gone for a long time unchecked, said DMV officials. Even Milton residents knew something was fishy about the way that car dealership did its business.

The DMV responded to a car buyer from the said dealer about the car he bought taking too long to receive its registration. The subsequent audit by the DMV led to the discovery that the dealer was more than just on the wrong in terms of car registration. The DMV fined the dealer a total of $7,200 in administrative and civil violation penalties, as well as the suspension of its privilege to do business. Here are some of the things why this car dealership went down like a lemon.

Selling what’s not theirs: The car the complainant bought came from another dealership; but the Vermont-based car dealer failed to file the necessary papers. Vermont state laws require a car to be duly filed if ownership will be transferred for the authorities to keep track of the vehicle in question. This is the reason why it took so long for the DMV to register the complainant’s car.

This is a no-brainer for many car dealerships since they also sell cars that used to be owned by other people. Even in places other than Vermont, the rules strictly state that proper authorities must be notified of the transfer of ownership. By doing so, they can update their database and keep a close eye on the vehicle for any issues or concerns by its new owner.

Uncertified mechanic: The DMV also found out that the Vermont-based car dealer’s mechanic continued to practice his profession with an expired license. Even after his license expired in 2006, the car dealer hired him in 2010 and made hundreds of faulty inspections. For a car lot, a certified mechanic can be just as important as the buyer, as the latter’s life in his car depends on the former’s skill. Prestigious Indianapolis car dealerships hire certified mechanics to fix car problems.

Real Indianapolis car dealerships wouldn’t risk both the lot and the buyer legal and safety issues in any transaction. Keep in mind about the lessons learned in this case and you can be sure that you’re doing business with the right man. Take note that not all car lots are bad.

More on the story about the questionable car dealership can be found in the Burlington Free Press at Don’t forget to ask your car dealer about credentials that came with Indianapolis cars, as well as their staff.
