Department of State takes action against Bangor auto repair facility
August 24, 2022
BANGOR – The Michigan Department of State (MDOS) has served a cease and desist order on a Bangor automotive repair facility for performing services on motor vehicles with an expired repair facility registration and mechanic certification.
Lenard’s Automotive, located at 622 West Monroe St. in Bangor, was served a cease and desist order on Aug. 18. Lenard’s Automotive is owned by Lenard Salinas. On June 17, a MDOS regulation agent performed an inspection at the repair facility and found it to be performing motor vehicle maintenance, diagnosis and repair service on a motor vehicle for compensation with an expired repair facility registration and mechanic certification.
The facility's registration expired March 17, 2013, and the mechanic certification expired Jan. 21, 2009. Both licenses are still expired. A notice was sent to the facility to cease and desist performing all major repairs that require a valid repair facility registration and a properly certified mechanic. On Aug. 18, an MDOS regulation agent returned and found the repair facility still performing services without a valid repair facility registration and mechanic certification.
Consumers who have a complaint against Lenard’s Automotive are encouraged to call the Office of Investigative Services automotive complaint line at 517-335-1410.
