My husband has been with CarMax for 10 years. He was recruited from another dealership, in another words CarMax WANTED him, pursued him for a year, as a matter of fact, sought him out and hired him. My story starts in 1999 when CarMax told him that he had to fly to...

I wish I had discovered this website before I had a horrifying car buying experience with CarMax. I didn't know this was the way car buying was supposed to be. CarMax also sold me a flooded vehicle. It was a 2007 Saab that had extensive salt water damage, rust and...

Carmax review in Los Angeles, California: Didn't need my money
I attempted to buy a 2008 Explorer from Carmax in Monrovia, a salesman came up after we looked around for a while and ask to help us. I told him I wanted to buy a Explorer or mustang for my son. His limit was $20,000 and I would put down $10,000. He walked around with my son and he desired a mustang. I told the salesmen if when my son drove it and he liked it I would take it. He took my sons license and we waited for him to come back. Then we waited more and more, I saw him helping some other lady and decided that this guy wasn't that interested in a sale. My son grabbed his license which was on the counter and we started to leave. He had the nerve to ask whats up. I told him we were leaving, then he said here let me give you my card. I told him to keep his card and told him that I don't wait to give my money away. Carmax is a joke, I spent my money elsewhere
Carmax sold me a car with a defected driver door.
I purchased a 2005, Chrevolet, Trailblazer from Carmax October 27, 2008. After 6 months the door on the drivers' side could not be opened with a key if locked from the inside. I had to unlock the passenger door with the key, then unlock the vehicle in order to enter the vehicle from the drivers' side. The Service Center at Carmax found a rod for the cylinder lock was off the clip at the bottom which held it together, it was loose. The clip was repaired and the rod was installed and routed correctly. I was charged $97.00. I asked that the amount be waived, in that, the door was defected when I purchased the vehicle; however, a manager at Carmax only would give a $20.00 credit and said he was being generous. I strongly believe Carmax should be liable for the full amount, $97.00, not just $20.00. I was sold a vehicle with a defected drivers' door.
After reading most of these complaints. I have come to the copnclusion that most of you are really too *** to buy a car, let alone drive one. If you are as *** as your posting sounds, no wonder you feel ripped off by Carmax. You probably were you *** If you could...
I bought an '05 Dodge ram from these clowns at the Greenville, SC location last year. I blew a tire last week and was about to replace it with the spare, only to find my truck had NO JACK OR LUG WRENCH SET. I couldn't even get my spare tire down without it! I was lucky...
Carmax automotive service repairs are unreliable and costly.
I really hope that this will make everyone think twice before buying and or servicing a vehicle from Carmax. They claim to do such a complete inspection of their vehicles yet I had to have a rear window repaired the first day I bought my 02 Jeep Liberty. I do not have children or anyone who rides in the backseat(actually no-one since the repair). The first time someone put the window down it does EXACTLY the same malfunction. It took over 5 days to get appt scheduled to repair. And was charged for exact same repair... If this was the only problem I had I wouldn't complain. But within 10 day after purchase 3 of the five tires blew out or failed while driving on the highway. As well as an electrical short with the lights. Their work leaves a lot to be desired, as well as their customer service... I wish all was an exaggeration but it is not. I pray you are smarter than i was and stay clear...
