2008 Silverado Duramax Rolled - Complaint
CALIFORNIA, UTAH -- So I bought a wrecked Silverado Duramax from Getwwa a few years ago and I'm still chapped over it. Let me say I've been rebuilding salvage title autos for over 15 years. I found there site and seen this truck they were asking 13k for it it was a couple thousand less then most. The pictures looked as most do. The things a body man will look for appeared good. The windshield was crack free, the side glass was unbroken. Headlights were undamaged. It appeared to be a light roll over. The back bumper was slightly damaged on the one side of the box. I called and spoke to Jesse on the phone. I asked about the roof and if it was fixable he said it was and then I asked about the drivers rear were the damage was to the back bumper. I asked if it was hit hard at there I was concerned if it had frame damage and if the wheel was struck. He said the wheel was not hit. And if the frame was bent it wasn't noticeable. So I talked them down to 12 and said I would have them ship it to me for the 400 they quoted. Well 4 months later I finally received the truck. Not the two weeks they said it would take. So inspected the truck. The roof was jacked up into place and the wrecked the floor board by jacking the roof up. They had a new windshield in place. It was only touching in three spots. I could put my arm in between the cowl and the glass. The side windows were duck taped into place. The headlamps were zip tied in. And the bumper was jacked out. The front suspension was missing.
They had the front knuckle Jimmy rigged to the truck to mount the wheel. The tie rod welded in place. By them jack the roof up and wrecking the floor the truck needed a cab clip. They had the front end zip tied together making it appear to be undamaged so not knowing that. The cooling system was junk. The jack out the rear box and bumper replacing the wheel then lying about the damage. So the rear was bent frame was up six inches. So I replaced front and rear bumper, core support, radiator, intercooler, ac condenser, fans, both fenders, headlights, hood, cab, doors, computer was missing they said it lot drove ( sure without the ecu and tcm) frame, drive shaft missing, rear end was bent the drivers wheel wouldn't even turn, front diff, both front axles were missing, steering rack, the box, and the exhaust was missing. Seats were all bent from jacking the floor causing the mounting to all bend. so when it was said and done I bought the truck for 12k and put 19k in it. So 31k in this truck.
So I will keep put up these reviews until something is done. I know in the state of Wisconsin it is illegal for a salvage dealer to alter a vehicle prior to selling it. I think the law needs to step in with these people!
