Over $1 million in refunds from auto dealers and repair shops has been recovered and returned to New York consumers.
The Department of Motor Vehicles' Vehicle Safety Division made these recoveries last year on behalf more than 600 people statewide. More than $100,000 has been recovered in the Capital Region.
DMV says it receives more than 6,000 consumer complaints every year involving vehicle dealers or repair shops accused of selling vehicles in poor condition, failing to register vehicles, committing inspection fraud, and making faulty repairs.
