Michigan Secretary of State Ruth Johnson has suspended the licenses of three auto dealers in metro Detroit, according to the Secretary of State's office.

According to Johnson, A dealer at First Place Auto Sales in Waterford Township was selling cars for which he did not have titles and continually failed to apply for titles and registrations for customers.

John Yurkovich Auto Sales in Wyandotte also had its license suspended after investigators found the dealer was not applying for titles and registrations within 15 days.

Finally, investigators found that M & M Cars, Inc. failed to provide records of auto sales and inventory, leading to its license getting suspended.

“Auto dealers who don’t follow the rules are being put on notice,” Johnson said in a release. “My team and I are committed to protecting consumers from unscrupulous sellers. Automobile transactions must have a complete and accurate paper trail, and dealers who ignore this requirement will face consequences.”
