Dan Carboni
Brand Specialist / Inventory Manager
(860) 658-3508

I joined Hoffman Toyota in 2014 with a love for cars but with very little knowledge of the Automotive industry as a whole. After 5+ years with Toyota I have learned more than I ever imagined and have become a true believer in the Toyota product. The thing I enjoy most about Hoffman Toyota is the family atmosphere and how close knit our team is inside and out of the dealership. While my true passions are for the outdoors and being on a jet-ski or a snowboard depending on the time of year, I am still a sucker for a day inside watching movies or binging a TV show. I am an avid sports fan and I love a good craft beer and hitting up all of the local breweries with friends. I look forward to providing you with the car buying experience that you'd expect from a 100 year old family owned business!
