Nations Truck & SUV Center Complaint - Buyer Beware
SANFORD, FLORIDA -- On 10- 27-2009 I purchased an 2006 Chevy 3500 4x4 From Nations Truck & SUV Center in Sanford Florida. A very clean truck with low miles. I looked and looked for a truck like this on one, unfortunately they had one, Today I wish they didn't because I have discovered that the truck was in a major wreck and rebuilt. Just looking at it one would never be able to tell unless you knew what to look for. What I'm going to tell you is 1st hand from a very reputable body shop. The entire right side of the bed was replaced, and not done properly over half the weld points were never welded, the bed at the tail light end moves a lot when the tail gate is open its moving so much it has cracked the seam sealant that was installed over the seam and this sealant is made to stay flexible, the cab end of the bed was never welded either and has some movement, the list gets longer. The entire front clip including the core support has been removed to replace the core support, when it was all put back together nothing lines up. The head lamps are not even pointing on the road. The right upper control arm was replaced. Under the hood there is all kinds of plastic pieces broken, bolts missing, and who knows what else. The body shop stated they couldn't tell the entire extent of all the damages unless it was all taken apart. The right side of the truck was repainted, The only thing that was credited to who ever did the paint work, was really good, so good it fooled me. Conclusion, I contacted them and told them all that was discovered about the truck, they immediately said there is now way the truck was pieced together. So now I'm on the phone arguing asking them, so now your telling me Its all just a bad dream or that I'm just making all of this up. Will someone please wake me up because this is a really bad nightmare. After three days, five phone calls. I was told by a law firm to make them an offer to take the truck back refunding the total amount back to me less a set price of. 35 per mile for what miles that have been put on the truck to date. There counter offer was to bring the truck back and trade it in one something else. Well for one they don't have what I want and even if they did why should I have to pay sales tx or anything at all. They sold me a pile iof junk. All I wanted was a full refund less mileage and hand shake saying we are sorry that this was over looked since we had purchaced it from an auction, or anything along those lines. No, just denial all the way to the end. There other offer was to buy the truck back for 3k less than what I just paid for it. This is all so wrong it makes me sick. Since this letter was posted I had found out from a very reliable source that they knew the truck was rebuilt and they do this all the time. The sad part of all of this I'm out my layers fee's my time plus I had to re register my old truck and carry insurance on two trucks wile in limbo with these crooks until I decided to give in and take the only way out and have them buy it back on 11-18-09 for $28,300.00 Bringing my loss to well over $3,500.00. This should be concidered fruad, no one should have to go through what I have and loose that much money. They may not have broken any laws in there shady ways of hiding behind leagal terms but broke many morals and part of my spirt and I will do all I can to make the public aware of these type of thiefs.
