Original review posted by user Mar 25, 2020
I bought the jeep from a New Hampshire Dealership with 18,000 miles (ca. 28,968 km) before I closed the deal I had asked for a Car Fax they said that was never in a accident and it was not necessary as the dealership has always owned the vehicle and it was the sales manager vehicle. A couple of years ago someone rear ended the vehicle and I took it to 2 different body shops only to hear the same thing the car identification was missing on the Drivers Door and the front hood and the door both had been poorly repainted. Since the day I bought it I have experienced a Anti Freeze smell and every time I brought it in to the dealership for oil changes I asked them to check for it every time. I don't believe they ever looked as the only documented once, and I was assured every time that there was no leak. However, the smell continued and I just went into the Dealership a few days ago for oil change, and they showed me a picture of the entire bottom of the radiator encrusted with dried up Anti Freeze and a leak, they recommended that I change the Radiator Immediately, as it was ready to go at anytime. I convinced that this car was in front end accident and that's why the front hood and the drivers' door was repainted and the radiator was damaged in the accident and was never noted. Well it's bad enough that I was sold damage vehicle that the Dealership owned and never disclosed the accident, but just to get blown off. Unacceptable!!!! I think it's time to turn this over to Maine Consumer Protection and see what their thoughts are on this matter.

User's recommendation: Check the Car Fax no matter what.
