DE SOTO, Kan. — When Dustan Broom bought a car from a dealer in De Soto, Kansas, he never imagined the problems it would cause. Broom said his credit was ruined when Alliance Motor Group never paid off the loan on the car he traded in, as promised in the paperwork he signed.

“They had possession of my car for two months and never paid it off,” said Broom, a single dad.

Broom said he started getting threatening calls multiple times a day from his old loan company wondering why he was no longer making payments on the Mustang he traded in. He said he was told he owes $12,000 or it’s taking him to court.

Not only did Alliance Motors not pay off his car, but Broom said the $795 he gave Alliance Motors to buy gap insurance for his car, never went to the insurance company.

“Alliance paid for the gap coverage and then a few months later terminated the gap policy and the policy reimbursed the money to Alliance,” said attorney Donovan Dodrill who is representing Broom.

Dodrill and attorney Matt Kentner are suing Alliance Motors on behalf of Broom. They say their client isn’t the only unhappy customer. They were informed by the Kansas Department of Revenue that five other former Alliance customers also never got a title to their cars. When Problem Solvers called KDOR, it was unable to confirm that allegation, but we did receive a complaint from another customer also missing a title and found a lawsuit filed by a third customer claiming also not to have received a title.

What does Alliance Motor Group have to say? The De Soto car lot shut its doors earlier this year, so we paid a visit to the man who was listed as owner with the Kansas Secretary of State’s office, Darin Walker.

Walker lives just a few miles down the road in Lawrence. When we approached his home with our camera we saw a man who looked like Walker working on his boat in his front yard. When he saw us, he ducked inside the boat and denied he was Walker .

We later got an email from Walker, acknowledging it was him on the boat. He said he’d lied to us about who he was because his attorney warned him not to talk to the media. Walker blamed complaints about Alliance Motor on a business partner. But that business partner, put the blame on Walker.

Broom filed a complaint with the Kansas Attorney General’s office, but it said it couldn’t help him because Alliance Motors is out of business.

Or is it?

When we visited last October, a new car lot was operating in the same location called NexCar. Walker is no longer listed as the owner by the Secretary of State’s office, but behind the building sits Walker’s boat. If you check out NexCar’s website, the man you have to talk to to buy a car is Darin Walker.

This month, NexCar also closed up shop. However, attorneys suing Alliance Motors on behalf of Dustan Broom say they will also go after NexCar for financial relief. They tell FOX 4 Problem Solvers that when NexCar took over the car lot from Alliance Motors, it assumed all liabilities. We’ll let you know what happens.
