Great Lakes Diesel - No on the up and up

Sold me a truck they never service, but said they did. After lying about a refrigerator being in the truck they installed a new one that doesn't work. Promised a new mattress, that they didn't put in. Left out coverage on the warranty they had listed on the buyers order. Truck came with no working cruise control. Broke down after pulling empty trailer 8 miles

Well reading all these negative posts you would think Rick is a snake oil salesman. And to a certain extent he is. The man does build a good engine and is knowledgeable. Very crafty. On the other hand he's very sneaky. I only worked there briefly but in that short...
