I bought a car from Carmax in Feb. 2013 - loved it! The second day I heard a "knocking" took it back they "fixed" it. It's now knocking again.....bad! Doubt they fixed it properly in the first place. Also, I purchased the warranty and was told if I didn't use it within a year, that I could cancel and get all monies back. Ok, doesn't work that way...they just took the 1000.00 off the back end...

Took my jeep in for an appraisal, after seeing similar models with many more miles offered for sale at Carmax for $12,000-$14,000 or more.They drove my car, without me, came back and informed me the was an "issue" with the transmission at high speeds, even though I had the jeep serviced weeks before, and appraised at another dealer, they found no such problems. So the offer to me was $3500, but... Read more

This is a pretty old thread, but just for giggles I will contribute my thoughts. You're dealing with an industry that, to say the least and being nice about it, is known for not being the most honest. It starts from the VERY TOP of the distribution chain. The Manufacturer, GM, Toyota, Ford, etc. (when selling new cars) tries to screw the dealers with confusing sales incentives, and who knows what... Read more

The offer was 72% of Edmonds or Kelley Blue book value so I didn't sell my car but I do want to thank them for the offer. It's like the "we buy houses" ads you see on street corners. They will buy your car if you need to sell it fast. But you are only going to get 70% of market value. Shop other dealers and try the newspaper or a sign in the window around a public place if you in a big hurry.... Read more

Brought my car to be serviced under the expensive service plan they pushed me into buying. They said it would be transferred to the dealership, because the manufacturer warranty would be covering the repairs. Then they said they couldn't do that for us. We went to pick up the car, they couldn't find it! When we searched every inch of the lot, we finally found it, but they were missing the plate... Read more

I bought a 2007 Ford Explorer from my local CarMax store. Traded in my 2000 Towncar for their pathetic $300 offer just because I didn't want the hassle of selling it myself. It was getting old but book was probably $2000 at the time and I'm sure I could have gotten $1000 for it quick and easy. On the way home in the Explorer the tire pressure light comes on so I pull into a gas station and... Read more

I recently bought a car from CarMax and it's been a nighmare ever since. This is NOT the way car buying should be. Aside from the major hassle received because we did our own financing, once we got the car it fell apart, literally. Front bumper came off as well as the light switch when I went to turn on the driving lights. Then found the steering wheel controls had to be replaced and the TPMS... Read more
