Department of State suspends license of Flint vehicle dealership

FLINT - The Michigan Department of State (MDOS) has issued a summary suspension on a Flint vehicle dealership for failing to provide records.

Republic Auto Sales, located at 3640 S Saginaw St in Flint, is owned and Michael Ignace (the licensee). Following two complaint inspections by a MDOS Regulation Agent, a MDOS Compliance Analyst attempted to schedule a preliminary conference via teleconferences with the licensee on Oct. 11, notice of which was received and responded to by the licensee. After failing to produce on Oct. 11, the Compliance Analyst rescheduled the teleconference for Oct. 20. The licensee again failed to produce records on that date. The licensee was served with a summary suspension on Oct. 27.

The suspension remains in effect until Ignace contacts the MDOS Business Compliance and Regulation Division to set up another preliminary hearing, provides all required documents, and addresses complaints and violations assessed.

Consumers who have a complaint against Republic Auto Sales in Flint are encouraged to call the Office of Investigative Services automotive complaint line at 517-335-1410.
