STAY AWAY!!!!! Ken Bousquet (husband of the car dealership owner) is the biggest piece of sh*t walking this planet. If you buy ANYTHING from him, trust me you'll end up deeply regretting it. Here is a copy of the complaint I submitted to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles and the Better Business Bureau:  

My complaint is in regards to a used vehicle purchased from Ken Bousquet of 1 813 Got Cars in Tampa, FL. Ken has intentionally falsified receipts, illegally collected MA state sales tax, and used deceptive tactics to make a corrupt sale. My family and I were in search of a high quality, used vehicle and thought that Florida would be a good place to purchase one since, unlike MA, cars are not exposed to the harms of snow and salt. After contacting Ken regarding his listing for a used vehicle, he was aware that my family and I reside in MA, and were willing to travel all the way to FL if I deemed that the car was worthy. Ken assured my family and I on numerous occasions, both over the phone and in person that the car was absolutely in "perfect running condition" and was mechanically sound. He claimed he had the car looked at and serviced by a mechanic, and could provide all the receipts to confirm the maintenance completed. Further, Ken promised that he would not be wasting our time if he didn't believe the car was worth the trip since he himself is originally from the New England area, and knew how far I would have to travel. After a series of exchanges of phone calls, e-mails, and text messages, my mother and I decided to make the trip to Tampa and go to Ken's dealership to view the vehicle he had for sale. Upon meeting Ken, he again assured us that the car was in "perfect condition mechanically," and did not require any mechanical work whatsoever. When I was at the dealership, I had specifically asked Ken myself if the car would pass emissions testing. Ken said there would be "no problem." Additionally, at the time of sale, Ken had promised that he would buy factory Nissan paint to touch-up the damaged areas on a portion of the trunk as well as professionally detail the car. Furthermore, he promised he would have the window tint removed professionally from all the windows of the vehicle if I decided to purchase it, since window tint over 35% is illegal in MA. On the day when my mother and I viewed the car in Tampa, Ken said he did not have the receipts for the vehicle's maintenance at the dealership with him, but would overnight them to my home in MA once he had them. Because of these lies and false promises, I decided to purchase the car on 5/15/12. I had the vehicle shipped to my home in MA rather than drive it 1,155 miles. Although, Ken assured me that I would not have any problems if I were to drive the car home to MA. I opted to have the car shipped due to the limited amount of time I had since I was in the middle of the summer semester in college.  The car carrier picked up the car from Ken's dealership on 5/22/12 and delivered it to my home on 5/26/12. Upon receiving the Maxima from the car carrier, I discovered that the entire trunk had been entirely stripped, and left completely bare with nothing but a spare tire laying in it. I immediately notified Ken who said that he had never opened the trunk before and supposedly had "no knowledge" of this. As soon as I received the car, I attempted to register it at the RMV in MA. I was unsuccessful several times due to Ken failing to provide me with all the necessary paper work. I was finally able to get it registered on 5/29/12. I then attempted to get an inspection sticker on 5/30/12, but the car failed the test. The Maxima now has a rejection sticker that must be resolved within 60 days of the test. 24 hours later in the ensuing, the car would not start when I tried to bring it to the mechanic to have it looked at. I had to have the car serviced by AAA on two separate occasions on the same day just trying to get the car to the mechanic. Once the Maxima was finally looked over by the mechanic, a plethora of mechanical problems were revealed, all of which must be addressed in order for the car to be safely driven and pass the MA emissions testing (including a new catalytic converter!!!). The estimated cost of the mechanical work that needs to be performed now far exceeds the cost, and actual value of the car. Due to all of the issues that have arisen I have not been able to drive the Maxima in the extremely short amount of time that it has been in my possession. It is out of service and not safe to be on the road. If Ken had been honest and did not keep reassuring both my family and I that the car did not need any mechanical work, I would never have made the trip to FL to look at the car. I was duped because, Ken consistently declared there weren't any problems at all with the Maxima and kept insisting that it was perfect, mechanically. He even went so far as to lie about bringing the car to the mechanic on 5/8/12.
