FERNDALE, Mich. – An Oakland County auto repair shop was suspended for hiring uncertified mechanics, charging customers for repairs not performed and several other violations, state officials said.
Amazin Auto Repair at 503 East Eight Mile Road in Ferndale has been suspended due to violations of the Motor Vehicle Service and Repair Act.
Members of the Secretary of State’s regulatory staff said the repair shop continually employed mechanics who lacked the proper certification to diagnose repairs and service vehicles.
