"Ed Pfeiler, a mechanic who works on and off for Gannon, described him as honest and straightforward with his customers".

Ed is obviously not the brightest bulb in the string. I personally know a couple of people who've made the mistake of buying a car from Gannon. Seems he was also (allegedly) pocketing the money for the DMV registration/not reporting the sale. What a nightmare it turned out to be for the buyers. Great business Ed.

Guy is a real crum bum if you axe me!
Ha Ha, good story. Maybe you can sell it to Hollywood. Why would you take your dog in in the truck for an oil change? And how he steal it while you there? And was the cousin's daughter in the garage when she got PG?

This must be a common practise for car dealers in this town. When Red Bluff Auto Sales was Brothers they did the same thing to me and several other people. So much for trying to purchase vehicles locally. It's no wonder people leave Red Bluff to purchase their vehicles. Less chance of getting ripped off. Sad....

Gann was one of the softist talking con men that you could run into. He always acted like he had your concerns at heart, while he was figuring how he was going to get a few more bucks out of you. After this story, I would think that he would be out of businees, no matter how the court case comes out.

When I needed a Van after an auto accident, Mr. Gannon found exactly what I needed at a great price, I also purchased a warranty, and I used that warranty... He treated me better than fair, he has been a good person to me, What ever the circumstance, the whole situation is unfortunate, all I know is that he was good to me and I am grateful.

Ok so I read some of the previous posts... Really people , a dead lawn and a garden hose? A Rim Job? Yeah you are so sharp witted! If anything is giving Red Bluff a bad name, it is the people who need to look into "Hooked on Phonics" or at least need to learn how to use spell check.

Ya, some of the people that post have nothing better to do. I'm happy that you had a good deal with Gann, but some of the people that trusted him did not. We will see what comes out in court.

When my husband purchased his pickup truck from Mr. Gannon we got a good truck at a workable price. He also treated my father-in-law and his father with respect and they commented on how well he treated them.

People in Tehama County seem to have to much time on their hands.Really people get a job or something better to do than to just jump on the bandwagon.I have never had a bad dealing with Mr.Gannon.The people in Tehama County might want to be more concerned about the real crime going on in this county,that we are never privileged to.The ignorance really shows in the comments posted,did any of you graduate from school,how about take any spelling classes.Point being we should focus on the real crime going on all around us.Good luck Mr.Gan Gannon

So I also saw in the Shasta county records that Gann's brother James is CURRENTLY on charges of child molestation. I could have read it wrong... it could be more than one count

Traded in a car at gan's and had my bank call me a few weeks later asking where my payment was, I talked to gan he said he would take care of it. A month later bank called back and asked where my payment was. Turns out that LOWLIFE made a car payment. By law a dealer must have a car paid off within 30 days of trade-in. He ended up claiming bankruptcy and the car got repoed from his lot and MY credit has been hit ever since because no law protecting me. The bank expected that i could make two car payments by myself. Not that easy. May he rot in prison.

Gannon's paint job on my classic car began to bubble and chip within a few weeks after completion. No return of cost of $2500, nor any repair of his extensive damage. This criminal should be prosecuted, fined and jailed for the countless crimes he committed. Five years minimum, and hopefully he will learn a lesson.

Gan Gannon is a liar, a conman and a thief of the shadiest kind. True piece of work. Went out of his way to sell me a 4runner with blown head gasket. Tells me he personally just replaced head gaskets, timing chain and water pump, as well as registered and smogged. All lies. Truck overheated on the way home. Take to DMV- not smogged, gross poluter.Gann says he feels bad, wants to make everything right but no refund. That dirtbag burned me and let me load up my daughter into that deathtrap and sent me on down the road. Lowlife doesn't begin to describe. Now I have to sue also. BEWARE! He is still selling cars on Walnut just outside Red Bluff. If you deal with Gann you will regret it.

Trial starts today. Hope to finally see justice for 3 years of bad credit and the expenses of the LEMON that I purchased at the hands of this soft talking CONMAN.
Buyer Beware
He is selling cars under his "office helper/ girlfriend" name of Heather Herman out on Walnut Street. They are running shananigans. I would NOT be surprised if they are doing more than botch repair jobs, drugs and boxes of cheap wine while "repairing frames" of cars that we are unknowingly putting our innocent families in.
Buyer Beware!!!!!! I hope that today Tehama County gets JUSTICE!!! TBC

If nothing else I pray that today he is held accountable to a jury of his peers, and faces NO LESS than 5 years in PRISON. He must be shutdown and not able to hurt another family. Trial starts in 20 minutes. Today Tehama County DESERVES answers for how he has gotten away with this type of CRIME! He needs to answer for what he has done and face those of us that he is tortured.
