Fucking carmax is a joke! When we got the car they said it was a good running car. The alignment was off so we brought it in for a alignment and it wasn't aligned and fucked up our tires. Then they told us they have no record of my car being in the shop. My master cylinder and slave went out. They fixed that but put a dent on my drivers door. They gives us false towing information. We get different information about the car from everyone. My alternator went out they said it would be covered and now they tell us we have to pay before we get my car out of the shop. They said it is normal for 5th to rock and first to scratch. From my car being out of line for a long time it fucked up my tires and they won't give us new tires or atleast half off. Needless to say don't go to carmax they will take your money and not fix your car!!!! Ima have a few words with these mother fuckers when we get there tomorrow. Is there any thing that we can do to stop these guys from doing this to other ppl and us? Also we have only had this car for 4 months!!! Master and slave cylinder has gone out along with the alternator went bad. Everyone there gives us different info. Do not buy a car from car max!!

I bought at car at Carmax Laurel, MD June 2017 purchasing the vehicle 100% satisfied.

The real issue is with the service department needless to say my car has been at carmax for 6 weeks of the 8 that I have owned it so who really owns the vehicle?

I would like to rescind my loan and take my business elsewhere contacting the bank and lawyer is my next step.

I'm absolutely furious and would not recommend CarMax to my worst enemy.

I have filed a BBB compliant about the services for 2011 BMW 528i I purchased around March 25 at the Maple Shade location. All the dates are listed on the BBB website, I will post it once it becomes public. There is something wrong with the car it shakes whenever it gets to a quarter tank of gas. They have claimed to fix it months ago. Still not fixed. You have to wait weeks to get a service appointment and they only return calls when they feel like it. Since this has been going on with the fuel line, now I have misfire in 2 of my cylinders that in one conversation Derrick, service manager has told me is on 2 separate parts of the car and have nothing to do with the misfire that results in failed ignition coils. To now saying it might cause a misfire but not a bad ignition coil but Carmax is not repairing that because its outside of my 90 days. If the leak or whatever is going on was fixed I would not have the misfires or failed coils. During this time, I was told that BMW had issued a bulletin on the ignition coils stating that they are no longer using them. I asked why this information was not given to me when I purchased the car so that I would have had the car inspected. Derrick said they are not required to. CarMax guaranteed they did a 100% check on the car but didn't feel the need at the time of purchase to give me a bulletin. I have contacted my local BMW service department and they said they know nothing of this bulleting on ignition coils. I have asked for the date of this bulletin and a copy, no one seems to have it. I was told by Derrick to google it, I did nothing came up. Since last week another warning light is on DSC car won't go over 15mph and is not drivable. Now I cant even drive to work.

I have told Jennifer in the complaint department that all's I want to do is enjoy my car. I want it fixed. The service department is full of lies. They think they can tell a customer anything. This is not my 1st BMW and I will not stop contacting people until my car is fix.

I bought a car from Carmax in Birmingham Al on Friday August 11, 2017. The following day while driving I noticed what looked like to be BLACK electrical tape over 2 parts of the dashboard! Removed the tape and low and behold the service engine and airbag lighs were lite up. The tape was on there so well that unless the light hit it you would never notice it. As of now Carmax has the car and is promising to fix whatever is wrong. Had I seen these lights on I would have never purchased this car. Now I am skeptical that there might be more things wrong with the car since the lights were covered. Dealer assured me that that is not their practice. If Carmax is doing these extended inspections of cars this is something that should have been caught. I'm praying they fix this issue and that no issues arise from this car. And to note I was NEVER even offered and extended warranty plan should something arise in the future. Very disappointed and considering returning the car within the 5 day limit.

It wasn't disclosed that the car our daughter just bought with her hard earned money was in an accident. Not seen in the Carfax report, but we had a mechanic look it over after purchase and he saw it right away. If, like you said, they check over every vehicle before putting it out to sell, and as they claim this very thing themselves, they would have seen it and disclosed this to us.

Bought a car that was advertised with several features (have a pic of the advertised features associated with the car), transferred from PA. Realized later that the features were not present, took it back and they would not do anything. Quoted some fine print disclaimer - if you have any sense, RUN! Do not buy a car from these guys - service and guest relations suck!!!!!!!!

CarMax concept is a great idea and I was sold only to find out customer service sucks after consummating the sale. Big problem with financing but since the papers were signed I was out of luck. Spent a total of 8 hrs calling a 100 different numbers, nobody would help. Many promises of call backs but nothing, still waiting after 60 days. Here's your chance at redemption, prove me wrong, make a liar out of me.

My experience at your Jackson, TN. facility Saturday May 13, 2017 was nothing but very professional and pleasant. I purchased a 2015 $36,000 vehicle which I am very pleased with.

My concern is, that when a vehicle is purchased I would expect to have received two sets of remote controls for locking, unlocking and auto start. I only received one remote and would like to receive the second which I feel I have paid for in good faith. I was unaware of the missing remote until I paid for the vehicle and was leaving and only given one remote.

I am sure you will see thru, and follow up with your customer service pledge of integrity and forward the missing remote that had been misplaced.

Regards, Mike B

I'm absolutely disappointed with Carmax. My car needed Spark Plugs on which they said that they will repair and install. However the technician installed the wrong spark plugs in my vehicle which lead to more problems. I took it too the 100 Oaks location to try another technician but it only gets worst. They called and told me that everything was taken care of and replaced and I paid $503.75 now here we go again same issues with my car. This time I take it to the dealership and come to find out!!!!! My spark plugs were never changed. The manger called from the Rivergate location stating that I would be taken care of. I waited for the call from the dealership at miracle Chrysler dodge in Gallatin to get back with me on the rental and to give me an update on my car. Never called I had to call myself!!! Then he tells me that the manger called to discuss my vehicle issues but never consulted back with me. Then he tells me that they don't have any rentals there he would have to go and get one? Seriously? And this is a dealership? So your meaning to tell me that all customers use the same vehicle? I understand that this is a business and customers are hectic but in this Field of profession requires multitasking. And that includes keeping the customer updated on the details of your vehicle!!!!! Some people don't have another backup car if one breaks down. So you rely on your car. If Dodge cared about their customers they would escalate customers matters in finding ways to help. When the manger from Carmax called and stated that he would pay for my rental due to Carmax negligence and to pay for my repairs then the Service writer should had immediately contacted me in setting up transportation for me...... but I heard nothing...... all I heard well I'm going to get the rental as we speak? Excuse me? Where is the rental? That's not telling me nothing . Bottomline miracle Chrysler dodge should had told me look here your car is not going to be ready today because we have to order your part, however the good new is that we can get you in a rental today all expenses paid through Carmax I can't tell you when it will be ready but we're working on it... When can you come in for your rental pickup. Now that's professionalism. I'm going through this hell all because of Carmax negligence 2nd failure mistake. And Miracle Chrysler Dodge Poor Expertise in Customer satisfaction. Everyone is entitled to their first mistake but not second one. All this time I've been driving on bad plugs no wonder it was making that loud backfire sound..... No one should have to experience this issue. Technicians should be on there A-Game at all times. Our vehicles are in their hands. Place yourself in my

Purchased a 2016 Chevy equinox after the Mobile Al. Store opened, everyone was great, I was told how much the check needed to be to purchase the car. When we were filling out the paper work the sales person ask if I wanted the extended warranty and that I had to make the decision at that time and could not come back to purchase it. If Carmax gives a person five days to return the vehicle if you are not satisfied they should also give you five days to purchase the extended warranty. CEO should insure that the return policy and the purchase of the extended policy match! I hope the powers to be read this comment.

I have had very bad service experience at Carmax. I brought my car in for service A . The technician was backing it out of the service center and hit another car damaging my rear bumper. Now I took it in for the service B and paid $286, a 2.1 hour timeframe charge for this service. Guess what ? The technician done in 30 minutes. However, I paid for 2.1 hours of labor.

I'm HIGHLY PISSED OFF THAT I'VE KICK OUT AN ADDITIONAL $1028.00 ON A TRANSMISSION THAT WAS NOT RIGHT AFTER 2 MONTHS OF ME HAVING THE CAR. I HAD TO DRIVE 120 MILES A DAY 5 OR 6 DAYS OUT THE WEEK , HIGHWAY MILES. I KNOW $1000 ISN'T A LOT TO SOME PEOPLE, BUT IT IS TO LOWER CLASS CITIZEN.

Randy Zapata - 1 y ago

Well My name is Randy Zapata and I have been a loyal car buyer or client as you may consider me at this point because I have purchased approximately 6 vehicles from the Miami lakes Carmax Store and even purchased one for my son-in-law for my daughter. Each and every time I have been promoted to purchase an extended warranty and a A Gap Waiver Agreement. The pitch was that the extended warranty would cover most of any vehicle problems that might arise during the course of my ownership which has served well in that area. The problem is that I have been told that if I were to take the vehicle to any place for I repair, that there would be a deductible, but if I would bring vehicle to Carmax that there would be no deductible. So far I had not had any problems in taking my car to carmax until this last time. I had to bring car in for services that they ended up taking to the Mercedes Dealer and now I am being told that I have a deductible of $250.00. So I am quite upset that I feel that I have been lied too. The worst part is that I have had witness along with me in these purchases and they heard the same and understood the same. So I would like to file a complaint about this incident. My cell number is (hidden) and I can be reached at any time, but I would like to talk to someone in corporate office in a high position in order to discuss this problem. The Gap Waiver Agreement was another problem that I have previously written your office and someone called me from the local office and nothing was resolved. This is why I wish to talk to someone with authority. Thank You

I cannot believe Carmax's business practices. They say that they do a 125 point inspection on every vehicle. Well let me tell you my story. I saw a commercial that prompted me to go there and buy a car. So impressed with what i think they did to service their vehicles i bought two cars. IT WAS THE WORST DECISION I HAVE EVER MADE. I TRADED IN A VEHICLE AT THE CARMAX IN SOUTH SACRAMENTO THINKING I MADE A GOOD DECISION. NOT KNOWING I BOUGHT TWO DEFECTIVE CARS. THE FIRST CAR I BOUGHT BROKE DOWN THE NEXT DAY. THE OTHER VEHICLE THE DOORS DIDNT LOCK. I BROUGHT THE VEHICLE BACK AND WANTED TO GET MY CAR BACK BUT THEY SOLD IT. SO I WAS STUCK BUYING ANOTHER VEHICLE FROM CARMAX BECAUSE I COULDNT GET MY CAR BACK. I BOUGHT A THIRD VEHICLE! NEWER YEAR FOR MORE MONEY! IT BROKE DOWN THE VERY NEXT DAY. I HOPE MILLIONS OF PEOPLE READ ABOUT MY STORY. CARMAX HAS NOT DONE ANYTHING TO SOLVE MY PROBLEM. I HAVE BEEN SITTING IN THE SERVICE AREA WAITING FOR A DIAGNOSTIC CHECK ON THE VEHICLE FOR 3 HRS. IM SURE I WILL NEVER PURCHASE A VEHICLE FROM THIS OR ANY OTHER CARMAX EVER AGAIN. I WISH THEY CARED. EVERYONE I SPOKE TO AT THIS CARMAX IN SOUTH SACRAMENTO SEEMS TO THINK THIS IS NOT A PROBLEM. I HOPE NO ONE ELSE EVER HAS TO FEEL THIS WAY!!!!!!!!!

I sold a car to Carmax on 11/5/2016. I wrote them a check for almost $11,000 for the difference in what I owed and what the car was worth.

My car payment for this car was due to the lender on 11/8/2016. Because I had sold the car, I did not pay it.

On 11/20/2016 I received a letter in the mail that my car payment was past due and I now had an $85 late fee tacked on.

I contacted Carmax who was clueless and said they had sent the lender a check on 11/12/2016 but it had never been cashed.

So I called the lender. They said the check had been returned on 11/15/2016 because it did not have a pre-authorization number on it. I called Carmax back and told them what the issue was and they said they'd follow up with the lender on 11/28/2016.

Meantime, I'M still responsible for the car payment and late fee that will negatively affect my credit if it's not resolved ASAP.

You would think Carmax would WANT to get all of this figured out so they could get the title for the car so they could sell it.

But they don't seem to be in any hurry and don't seem to care that I'm still responsible for a car THEY bought almost a month ago. My personal check cleared the bank 2 days after I wrote it so they got a chunk of their money.

I've called them every day. No luck. And everyone seems to be pointing the finger at everyone else.

I've very discouraged to say the least and I will definitely think twice before I ever buy or sell a car to Carmax.
