Department of State revokes Saginaw vehicle dealers license

SAGINAW - The Michigan Department of State (MDOS) has revoked the dealer license of a Saginaw auto dealer for multiple violations of the Michigan Vehicle Code.

Carey Butterfield, owner of Butterfields Used Cars and Wholesaling, 4756 Dixie Highway, appeared at an administrative hearing on Oct. 26, 2021, to address violations of the Michigan Vehicle Code including:

  • fraudulently signing documents
  • exceeding authority as a dealer
  • failing to properly complete applications for title and registrations
  • failing to apply for title and registration within 15 days of vehicle delivery
