EDMONTON, Oct. 29, 2015 /CNW/ - The Alberta Motor Vehicle Industry Council is warning consumers about Miks Motor Inc. in Edmonton. The used car dealership may still be selling vehicles even though AMVIC cancelled its licence in July.
AMVIC has since issued Miks Motors Inc. a Director's Order to immediately stop selling vehicles but it appears that sales may be continuing.
AMVIC is now seeking a court order to enforce the Director's Order.
"As the regulator of Alberta's automotive industry we take consumer protection very seriously," Laura Lowe, communications and education manager of AMVIC said.
AMVIC encourages consumers to use the online search tool available at amvic.org to confirm if a business is AMVIC licensed before entering in to a transaction.
"Unlicensed or improperly licensed sellers are considered curbers. If you suspect a curber you should steer clear and report it to AMVIC," Lowe said.
AMVIC continues to investigate Miks Motors Inc. Consumers should submit their concerns on our website, amvic.org or by calling 1-877-979-8100.
