If your ever in the market to buy a quality semi-truck choosing just the right truck is
very important. Choosing just the right dealership is even more important. Not all dealerships do a complete inspection on trucks and make sure that they are ready to work and ready to generate money especially once you have put down a sizeable down-payment.
Ohio Truck Sales in Sandusky, Ohio is one of those dealerships. I recently interviewed one of the unfortunate customers that chose to do business with this dealership and was sold a truck with coolant leaking into the engine as well as a cracked engine block .
This basically means sabotage because the tractor will over heat , head gaskets will fail , and cylinders also most likely the rods deep inside the engine block will need replacement. We are talking a complete over haul of the engine and components costing a whopping $21,000. Now imagine you just put down 20% on a $55,000 dollar truck . Then had other expenses such as plating , permits , inspections etc.
Ohio Truck Sales takes older model Peter Built Trucks and Kenworths that have serious mechanical issues then will paint them and put a new chrome bumper and stacks to sell for big profits and leave the customer with equipment that will fail . The lenders they use are in on the scheme this is why each unit has a tracking device installed before it leaves the shop. So that when the truck fails Ohio Truck Sales will buy the truck back at a discount from the banks to resell again.
The sales manager’s name is Ainsley in her own words, ” We do not back up our equipment , it’s old our trucks can be 20 plus years and there is no warranty we don’t care if the truck fails on the road once it leaves the lot. ” Please see the photos below of an engine block from a tractor recently purchased from Ohio Truck Sales.
