Complaint Review: Don Baskin Truck Sales - Covington Tennessee
Don Baskin Truck Sales Complete deception, extremely dishonest, fraudulent sale of Dump Truck Covington Tennessee
The first red flag I noticed when I purchased the truck they took the pic off live and they cut the pentile hitch and air hoses. Salesman goaded me by saying how good it was and many people were coming to look at it. I wired the money, $38,500. I paid their $1,000.00 to have it delivered to Peoria. Which took 10 extra days they said. Finally, it gets here at 7pm, Wednesday at dark. The truck would not start. Noticed both windows were down and was raining. There were no window regulators, all were broken. I charged the batteries for 1 hour. No start, installed new batteries. The truck would turn over but not start. Called salesman- he said to put ½ can of starting fluid in it. It finally started. Drove off trailer and would not restart. Next day started with starting fluid to take to dealer. Max speed it would go was approx. 17 MPH and at the speed I could not keep on road because front end parts. Missing front hub cap pn front wheel, no il, 1 rim rusted. No way it would pass DOT.
Did not tell me it had 12,500 hours and needed overhauled. Said it had 48,000 original miles. Total misrepresentation.
Found many other issues that would make impossible to pass DOT inspections. Delivery driver said they had it running when he picked it up as all Baskins trucks are when they are picked up and none of them restart. All need new batteries when delivered are worn out. Approximately 2.5 miles down road it stalled while pulling away from a stop light. Stalled in intersection. Had to call tow truck and take to IH dealer where the truck got checked over and here are the results. I feel this dealer should refund my money. He knowingly sold a bad truck. Took IH one month to diagnose the problems ad costs $760.00.
The engine was blown-up. Both rear-ends were bad and found out it was specked-out for a coal mine. The truck would not go overr 30 MPH. Also had incorrect radiator that did not have a transmission cooler in it. Air conditioning did not work as the salesman said it would. Wiring is a mess around the whole truck. All wheel seals leak and no brakes at all. Truck in very poor condition.
