I was involved in a minor rear- end accident, and were hit from behind. We took our Rogue to get the bumper looked and fixed. The same day we got a call from the Geico adjuster who told me he had to let me know that when he took off the bumper there was “signs of work that has been done before with miss matched sealant and rust forming where paint is chipped”. He suggested we should come take a look at it. We looked at it and took pictures of it. This was the only accident we have had with this new vehicle. He did write a report about the previous damage and also took pictures. In our conversation with the GM of Henderson Nissan He said it came off the truck had an accident and made a hole in the passenger side wheel well and then they fixed it.
