Racine-area auto dealer reprimanded

Right Way Motors dealership license suspended through October

For release: October 6, 2017

The motor vehicle dealer license of a Racine-area auto dealership was suspended by the state of Wisconsin for 30 calendar days. In an effort to keep its motor vehicle dealer license, Right Way Motors, 6940 Washington Ave., Racine, agreed to follow better business practices. The suspension is a result of the dealership failing to process title applications within seven days of a vehicle sale, failing to pay off vehicle liens within 14 days, as well as failing to apply for an amended dealer license after changing locations.

A Special Order issued by Brian Hayes, administrator of the Wisconsin Department of Administrations Division of Hearings and Appeals, found that these violations warranted the suspension of the motor vehicle dealer’s license. The suspension was effective October 1, 2017, and extends through October 30, 2017. This action is the result of an investigation by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation’s Dealer and Agent Section.

Wisconsin Department of Transportation's Dealer and Agent Section licenses, regulates and educates the motor vehicle industry, and resolves disputes about dealership sales and warranty repairs. It also investigates complaints about odometer tampering involving dealerships and private sellers.
