My story started 2 years ago. I purchased a used 2002 Altima SE from Middletown Nissan in CT. It was a Certified Pre Owned car with few miles on it and the Carfax came back clean. This was my first time buying a car, and the salesman who sold it to me was Dan Hoyt. Dan said all their cars go through a rigorous used car inspection and their mechanics check it from top to bottom. I took his word for it. Bad mistake. After purchasing the car, we brought it to our trusted mechanic. The car had been in a bad accident and the repair was just patchwork. The sub-frame was scratched, the clear coat was peeling, filler tube was out of place, the radiator support, fuel filler, floor rail and tire well were damaged, the paint was oversprayed, the driver's door and hood did not align properly, and there was more to come... Now, 2 years later, the paint above the gas cap started to buckle and crack in about an 8 inch area. I brought the car to many auto shops to get an estimate on the damage (about $1000) and most of the shops were horrified the car was fixed in such a manner. Too much body filler was used which caused the cracking. I traded the car into another dealership, and they sad they would not tarnish their reputation by putting the car on their lot. That alone says a lot about Middletown Nissan. They did not tell me a word of this before I purchased the car. Buyers beware.
