YOUNGSTOWN — A Market Street business is among the five car dealerships in Northeast Ohio facing a lawsuit filed by the Ohio Attorney General’s Office on Wednesday for failing to deliver motor vehicle titles as required by law.
From Y-Town Auto Sales, 3205 Market St., the attorney general’s office is seeking $2,266.50 in reimbursements to the Title Defect Recision Fund, which is used by the office to help consumers who have trouble receiving a title from a dealership.
Y-Town Auto Sales could not be reached for comment Wednesday.
Other dealerships from which the office is seeking reimbursement are Auto Bahn and R&M Auto Service & Sales, both in Cleveland; The Car Shack in Akron; and Selective Auto Mart, Garfield Heights. More than $32,000 in total reimbursements from the five dealerships are sought.
According to a press release, the dealerships violated Ohio’s Consumer Sales Practices Act by not obtaining titles in the purchasers’ name within the required time frame.
