John "The Diesel Man" Barden and Fast Lane Auto are complete scams. They sell broke-down vehicles over the internet, and they arrive at your house on a flat-bed at 5:00 a.m., get dropped off, and flatbed squeals away before you can start the truck to see if it runs, because it will not run-it will be mechanically inoperable. Further, they will not respond to your complaints. DO NOT DEAL WITH THIS MAN OR BUSINESS.
You will never buy a good truck from this guy he gets trucks sent back for repairs and stuff wrong with the truck he knew thatd why ge sells them online
I have been looking around for a 2nd gen dodge cummins for a while. I stumpled on nydiesels.com usedcumminstrucks.comalso known as fast lane auto out of cortland, NY.I started looking emailed them and started dealing with John Barden "the diesel" guyhe was nice emailed me back on xmas telling me everything I wanted to hear.well nervous I decided to go forward. I paid a lot for the truck to get a truck that is 100%.well i wired the money to john and took a week to receive the truck and over a week to receive the title because he mailed to the wong address. always a story and very poor communication.regardless receive the truck and the rear axle is leaking.One speaker is workinglets just say less then describedhe says he will pick it up and fix it or pay me half of the cost that is his warranty policy for the axle. i say forget shipping i will have fixed locally and he agrees to pay half. well over week and a half and no check.then the oil pan is leaking so need to get that fixed. also most of all the front suspension parts tie rods etc are shot. 100%? LOLgot an estimate from a reputable shop near me last saturday and looking at nearly $3500 in repairs. so let jon know and he agrees to pick it up in a few days. Today with the snow fall shift to 4wd and nothing.No emails no texts no calls and this is the last straw when the 4wd doesn't work. I called from my cell and right to voicemail. So call from the home number and get a hello? He didn't recognize the home number. I quickly explain my disatisfaction and he quickly says he is busy. do yourself a favor and don't buy from him! he talks a good talk but no follow thru and All i can say is his description of my truck was very inaccurate. I will make the truck perfect on my own dime even though it was suppossed to be that way from the start with a 30 day warranty to cover everything.You Jon Barden or how ever you spell it are a disgrace and karma will get you.You lack of follow through is terrible. Stay away in my opinion and you will be happier!!
