Release date: May 23, 2019
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Division of Motor Vehicles takes an active role in protecting consumers with concerns about buying and selling vehicles.
As a part of this consumer protection function, the state of Wisconsin revoked the motor vehicle dealer license for McCoy’s of Green Bay, Inc. for failing to properly follow administrative requirements. The order, issued by the Wisconsin Department of Administration’s Division of Hearings and Appeals, determined that McCoy’s of Green Bay violated state law when they failed to perform vehicle inspections prior to selling vehicles and/or display buyer’s guides on vehicles, failed to use purchase contracts and failed to disclose service fees to customers. McCoy’s of Green Bay’s license is revoked effective May 19, 2019.
WisDOT’s Dealer and Agent Section licenses, regulates and resolves disputes about dealership sales and warranty repairs. It also investigates complaints about odometer tampering and title fraud involving dealerships and private sellers.
Disciplinary actions are part of its licensing and enforcement policy. The goal is to educate new and existing dealers to operate within Wisconsin’s legal and professional standards. This progressive enforcement policy ranges from verbal warnings, citations, criminal actions, court orders or injunctions to revoke licenses.
If a customer has serious concerns after talking with their dealer, the Dealer and Agent staff can help with purchase cancellation, warranty problems, Wisconsin’s Lemon Law and dealer complaints.
