DeWine sues car dealer
COLUMBUS, Ohio (Legal Newsline) - Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine announced a lawsuit on Wednesday against Glory Auto Sales for multiple violations of state consumer law.
Glory Auto Sales, based in Reynoldsburg, Ohio, is a used motor vehicle dealer. Consumers cited problems with certificates of title, repairs and services, and repossessions from the company. To explain the financing terms of its vehicle sales, the company allegedly used a one page contract that did not disclose financing costs.
"This company sold used vehicles without providing the information consumers needed," DeWine said. "It provided one page contracts that fell woefully short of what the law requires. Buying a used car is a major purchase for many consumers, and it's important that they receive all the protections the law provides them."
DeWine also alleges that Glory Auto Sales often failed to provide consumers with dated receipts listing the terms of a sale and routinely failed to apply for a certificate of title within 30 days of selling a vehicle.
Glory Auto Sales allegedly violated Ohio consumer law multiple times, including violations of the Consumers Sales Practices Act, Deposits Rule, the Odometer Rollback and Disclosure Act, the Retail Installment Sales Act, and the Certificate of Motor Vehicle Title Act. The lawsuit seeks civil penalties, permanent injunctive relief and full restitution for consumers.
