A well-known Bangor car dealership is being sued by the state.
The Attorney General says Glenn Geiser and his dealership, My Maine Ride on Washington Street, have engaged in unfair and deceptive practices.
The state claims the company targets customers with poor credit, pressures them into buying used cars that are not roadworthy, then doesn’t respond to customer complaints.
The state says the cars often don’t pass inspection and have undisclosed mechanical defects which the dealer won’t fix.
The state seeks civil penalties and wants to bar Geiser from promoting, selling or financing used cars.
My Maine Ride has also done business as Bumper-2-Bumper and Bangor Car Care.
