TEMPE, Ariz. -- A Tempe transmission shop 3 On Your Side has reported on for almost a year now is being forced out of business by the state.

Transplant Plus Transmissions was sued twice by the Attorney General's Office under accusations it violated the Arizona Consumer Fraud Act.

After the most recent lawsuit, Transplant Plus Transmissions signed off on a settlement agreement saying it would clean up its act.

But the AG’s office says the shop violated that agreement and continued to take advantage of customers.

The store has 60 days to complete any remaining work on vehicles, then must shut its doors for good.
