American Truck Group - DO NOT SIGN RELEASE when you return your truck
This company is full of liars!!! I can't say it enough. But what I can say is DO NOT sign the paper that they will insist that you sign when you return the truck. If you do, you will be signing away your rights to sue them -- and you very possibly have a lawsuit against them. They will try to bully you into signing -- DO NOT.
When you return your truck, take pictures of everything and if possible video too. Make sure that you have coverage of the keys in the ignition. They will call and tell you that the keys were not left in there.
Get a local newspaper and have someone to take a picture of you holding the paper - stand in front of the truck - in front of the building. Then zoom in and get the date on the paper.
They have been sued by a truckdriver group and I also found a lawsuit filed Oct. 6, 2012 in California for several things including racketeering. My friend is also retained an attorney and will very possibly be filing suit soon.
If you feel that you have been taken advantage of and lied to - sue the liars! You may be able to find an attorney that will take the case pro-bono.
