F&R Auto Sales Being Sued By State Attorney General’s Office
A civil suit naming F&R Auto Sales and it's owner as defendants was filed in Bristol County Superior Court this week.
Though it has nothing to do with the infamous pizza delivery video, a civil suit against the Westport used car dealership was filed on September 13 by Attorney General Maura Healey's office.
The Standard Times reports that the lawsuit stemmed from over 100 complaints from consumers.
The complaints range from car defects to improper repairs. Some say the were never given purchase documents and some were refused repairs on recently purchased vehicles. Many consumers also complained of cars failing safety or emission inspections shortly after purchase and six people said the dealership put on passing safety and emissions inspection stickers without their permission.
In total there were over 113 complaints made against F&R Auto since 2012 and only 16 were settled through mediation.
After failure to offer restitution as recently as September 3, the AG's office filed their suit against F&R Auto Sales Inc and its owner, Francis R. Correiro.
The Times tried several times to reach Correiro for comment, but a man answering the phone at the dealership said he was "not available."
