Not resolved

Carmax pulled a fast one. Carmax increased their profit by misquoting the payoff balance by over $50.

On top of that, no one explained to me that they would take 2 weeks to submit the payoff balance on my outstanding loan. As a result, the finance company took another payment (I was on autopay) that did not get returned to me for 8 weeks. You might say that Carmax was giving themselves "processing time", but all of this stuff is electronic. No other dealer that I know of does this.

And since I had a 1.9% interest rate, there is no possibility that the payoff balance they quoted was accurate even if you added on two weeks to process. But I did not think to question them at the time since it was in the ballpark of what I expected.

When I phoned Carmax, not only were they not apologetic, they could not understand why I was calling. This is their standard practice.
