2012 Kia Spectra Review

The dealer that sold me a 2012 KIA Spectrum doubled the price of my car. I feel that he took advantage of my desperate situation. My car payment was made to much higher in order for me to get credit with American Credit Acceptance. Looks like I was dealt this hand for commission. Yes I am pissed.

Carmax - Bmw X5 Review from Birmingham, Alabama

4.0
Details
The fact you didn't check your paperwork and ask for anything missing isn't just there fault. Also cars have accidents from time vehicle is wrecked and then once cars fixed only takes a week or two if no frame damage Carfax and Autocheck have about a 6mo lag time and most cars are wrecked fixed traded and resold before that 6mo update periods but that be a Carfax or Autocheck issue if you went though made sure you had and read your paperwork. Id say if you don't want a wrecked car buy new but then I wouldn't be telling truth since I work for new luxury dealer and they have wrecked cars from transport and moving around in the lots if it's under 5% and repaired with original or like parts they don't have to disclose so think about a 80k BMW X5 brand new 4,000 dollars worth damage they don't have to tell you or report it And even if they did its not gonna show for 6mo so used cars wrecked then traded in a week later and resold in 30/60days how would Carmax have any idea it been in accident unless the person trading it told them and what *** would disclose that and loose money on a trade

Wow. You really sound educated. I have a hard time believing you especially because you can't form a cohesive sentence.

Carmax sold a damaged vehicle

I bought a used 2010 Chrysler town and country from Carmax in Schaumburg Illinois in November of 2011. It was a fleet vehicle. During the next 6 months I noticed a line of rust forming on the sliding door. It corroded quickly. I just had to have the entire door replaced because the body shop opened it up to repair it and found that the support beam was bent and the door had been filled with plastic. Clearly this vehicle was hit and damaged severely enough to have a beam bent. I feel that this is something to tell the buyer when selling a vehicle. Fraudulent?

Car Max sold me a wrecked vehicle, but said it was never wrecked | Carmax review from Dallas, Texas

1.4
Details
I purchased a 2013 Mercedes in March 2014. Salesman said all was clear, no wrecks, that he was putting Car Fax in my records. I specifically asked it car had ever been wrecked, was told no. Went to trade it in a year later, Car Max said vehicle had been wrecked in June 2013, prior to me purchasing it. They offered to buy it back, but for way less than Blue Book and way less than the car was worth had it not been wrecked. I would never had purchased the car had I been told it was wrecked. Strangely, my paperwork copies do not include a copy of the Car Fax, or AutoCheck. Bottom line, they sell you a wrecked car, say it isn't wrecked, then when you try to trade it in, they now find out it was wrecked, and offer you less money for it. CROOKS.

Carmax - Car Report Review

Update by user Jun 17, 2015

This happened to me in South Florida off of Sample Rd.

Original review posted by user Jun 17, 2015

Carmax sold me a car that had an accident a year & half before I bought it. They not only lied but showed me a clean report showing no accidents & 1 owner. I went to trade in the car & saw the real carfax showing the bad accident & I am owner #5. I went down to the Carmax on Sample Rd (FL) to ask why would they do this. The response I received was they use "Auto Check". I stated there is no way that all the information did not come up as I showed them the actual 40 page carfax. They are liars & are scamming people all over the country. PLEASE do not buy a car from them. They are crooks.

Bought 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan and feel it has had nothing but problems | Carmax review from Sacramento, California

2.0
Details
bought one mini van from CarMax and after having it 40 days engine light came on. Engine bad and many other things wrong. Also the after our mechanic checked the van he said the amount of stuff CarMax had to replace on this van he would have thought the car had over 300 miles on it compared to the 60,000 the speedometer had on it!!! CarMax bought that van back from us and we purchased a 2010 dodge grand carvan from them. After having it 2 years transmission went out! and upper oil pan just cracked and that is over $800.00 to repair. I really question the inspection of the vehicles and in what shape they are in when they get them. Just hard for me to see these things happening on a car that is 5 years old.

I agree. Ours has air conditioner out, dash lights out (needs new motherboard $700 fix), struts need replacing, brakes done, transmission makes clunk noise when shifting down into lower gear. I want to buy American vehicles but I'm getting pretty frustrated by them....Discouraged in Wisconsin.

I would like to expose more of these reviews about carmax to many other social media sites. I do think it would save potential buyers much aggravation, time and money.

And carmax is suppose to be a top 100 company! B.S

No evaluation my vehicle as advertised | Carmax review from San Diego, California

Re: CarMax, 7766 Balboa Ave, San Diego, Not the CarMax I use to know: I’ve done business with Carman before and have been pretty happy with their people. Today, June 8th 2015 I was greeted by very tall young man named Jeff as I entered the building. I was speaking with him about my 2013 Red Corvette Grand Sport with 11,800 mi. fully loaded and trying to find out how much they might pay me for my car. Three times I was told my car was a special car and no need to inquire. The automobile was not a customized in any way. But he felt, on three occasions to tell to leave and try elsewhere. I have always been greeted and made to feel very welcome there but today was certainly not the case. My guess is CarMax is changing views on hospitality. And I guess if you’re buying a car do you get the same kind of treatment? Jim of Hillcrest San Diego

That's funny, carmax trains their employees to tell customers the vehicles are high quality. The signs are all over their showrooms. I guess carmax must be F.O.S.!!!
