Bridgestone auto repair will pay for violating N.J. Consumer Affairs settlement

Bridgestone auto repair will pay for violating N.J. Consumer Affairs settlement

Violations were discovered during audits of auto repair shops in Parsippany and Montclair

Bridgestone Retail Operations, the auto repair business, has agreed to pay $26,405 and revise several business practices to settle allegations that the company violated terms of a 2000 settlement with the state Division of Consumer Affairs.

The violations were discovered during the fourth and final round of audits at Bridgestone auto repair shops in Parsippany and Montclair, as required under the settlement.

Consumer Affairs’ investigators brought vehicles for service to the shops where the operators misrepresented the scope of the transmission services that were actually performed on the vehicles. The audits further revealed the shops’ failure to post signs informing consumers of their rights as required by the Automotive Repair Regulations.

“Businesses should know that we are diligent in following up to ensure compliance with our consumer protection laws and regulations following settlements,” state Attorney General Paula T. Dow said Wednesday. “If a business does not live up to the agreed-upon terms, we will act to protect consumers and their hard-earned money.”
