Why are vehicle dealers in Michigan bonded?

Michigan auto dealer surety bonds guarantee that the principal (vehicle dealer) will not sell any vehicles that they know to be faulty, conduct business at a non-licensed location or engage in any fraudulent, unethical or unlawful practices. Uniform vehicle dealer surety bonds also make certain that dealerships pay the state for any and all owed taxes or other related fees.

This bond does not allow Michigan vehicle dealers to acquire late-model vehicles or salvageable parts through a salvage pool, or broker without first obtaining a salvage vehicle agent license. The Secretary of State will investigate any and all alleged cases of persons conducting business as a salvage vehicle agent without a license.
