The Ohio attorney general announced a lawsuit against a Dayton used-car dealer accused of failing to deliver motor vehicle titles to consumers.
The lawsuit seeks reimbursement from Ashley Alexander, doing business as Alexanders Auto Sales, after nearly $11,000 from the Title Defect Rescission Fund was used to help consumers who filed complaints against the dealer.
Alexanders Auto Sales operates in Dayton at 5001 N. Dixie Drive and at 5115 N. Dixie Drive. Several consumers have filed complaints against the dealership, with most citing title problems.
The attorney general’s lawsuit accuses Alexander of violating Ohio’s Consumer Sales Practices Act by failing to obtain or deliver titles to purchasers as required by law and failing to register a business name with the Ohio Secretary of State.
In the lawsuit, the attorney general seeks an end to any violations of the law, reimbursement for affected consumers, civil penalties, and reimbursement to the Title Defect Rescission Fund.
