State probing customer complaints from Suski used car lots

Posted: Updated:

(01/10/14) - A well-known Mid-Michigan car dealer has closed five of its used car lots.

Andy Suski of Suski Chevrolet-Buick in Birch Run says he closed the dealerships in Flint, Fenton, Mt. Morris, Holly and Lapeer because they weren't being run up to his standards.
It appears they might not have been running up to the standards of the Michigan Secretary of State's office, either.

We talked with Andy Suski on the phone, Friday, and he is having a big sale at his car dealership in Birch Run.  

Questions to remain as to why he closed the used dealerships.

ABC12 News cameras were rolling last month as used cars were being inspected and then driven off one of five Suski Used car lots. Andy Suski says the cars have been moved to his Birch Run car dealership and are all for sale.

Suski told us on the phone that sales of the cars, trucks and SUV's at the used car lots were very good, and those brisk sales may have caused paperwork problems.

Fred Woodhams of the Michigan Secretary of State's office confirms there have been complaints from people who have purchased vehicles from the now-closed used lots.

"The department has received about a handful of complaints from consumers related to title work from some of the used car dealerships. We are working with the consumers," Woodhams said.

Suski says he is aware of the complaints and has been working with the customers as well. Some of the employees at the used lots are now working in Birch Run.

Meanwhile, Woodhams says the secretary of state investigation is an open one.

"The title is ownership, if you don't have title to a vehicle, in the eyes of the law, you probably don't own that vehicle, that is why it's a serious concern," he says.

Suski says an accounting firm is doing an audit of those five closed dealerships.
