BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER) --- State officials say they will wait a few more weeks before deciding whether to suspend the license of a used car dealer in Bangor.

Glenn Geiser is the owner of 'My Maine Ride.' Last week the Maine Attorney General's office announced it was suing the dealership, citing years of customer complaints.

Investigators say Geiser has made a business off selling cars that cannot pass inspection.  Meanwhile investigators with the Bureau of Motor Vehicles are also accusing Geiser of improperly obtaining state inspection stickers.

A hearing to revoke the operating license for 'My Maine Ride' was supposed to take place on Monday. It was postponed to give Geiser's lawyers more time to prepare their case.

"This is a serious situation," said Joanne Baumrind, who is a hearing officer for the bureau, "you're talking about taking a dealership like this and putting him out of business...you want to make sure he has good representation and that he has had time to adequately prepare."

Yet while the hearing did not go on as scheduled, it did not stop many of Geiser's angered patrons from showing up. 

"Mr. Geiser has just not stood behind his vehicles of the contracts that he signed with those people," said Tammy Haskell, who purchased a 2005 Pontiac Vibe from the dealer, "and I feel like I should get my $700 back."

NEWS CENTER tried to contact Geiser on Monday for a comment but the dealership referred all questions to its lawyer. The hearing for Geiser has been re-scheduled and will be held February 26, 2014 at 9:30 a.m. inside the BMV offices at the Bangor Airport Mall.
