News10NBC has learned Frontier Autohaus, an auto dealer on Avis Street in Rochester, has been shut down by the New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s office.

We are told the dealer misled customers and took in used cars but failed to pay off liens before re-selling to new owners. The AG’s office says the previous owners remained on the hook for their loans and the new owners were unable to register their vehicles.

The owner was ordered to permanently close the Avis Street location and to never operate another car dealership in New York State.
