Complaint / review text:
I purchased a Commercial Truck (2003 Freightliner Classic XL) from this Company. I got a good truck from the company. They "refurbish" these repo and auction trucks for resale and that is not the problem. I was told that the truck would meet D. O. T. Safety standards and there were several items that did not Pass inspection and they "State and D. O. T." inspected it and placed Inspection stickers for the State of PA and Federal saying there were "NO DEFECTS"
I was not getting even fair fuel MPG'S and I decided to check the Air filters (I was told they were new) and I got a shock, The air filters were 7 years old (manufactured April 2004) This could have allowed "DIRT" into the engine and caused a Engine Failure and when I contacted "Bret Stockslager" I was told that those air filters were not replaced because they were "Clean". BRET IS A LIAR, There is NO WAY that 7 year old air cleaner filters in a Truck breather are clean and he offered me "LIP SERVICE" over the issue. This has been reported to Russ Darrow Leasing and to M&I bank.
My Advice is if you are going to buy a truck from this dealer, You need to take the truck of your choise to a Mechanic and pay to have it checked out before committing to the purchase or BRET STOCKSLAGER WILL RIP YOU OFF and this is a fact!!
