I can't stand Carmax because I think they charge to much. Dealerships charge more, but give you room to negotiate a price. No dice at Carmax.
Plus the salesmen are douchebags.

"HI, welcome to Carmax, it doesn't matter the price of the car you purchase, I get paid the same commision regardless. Would you like a carfax report? I know you haven't picked out a car yet, but I'll get one for you anyways. Do you want to trade in your car? No, are you sure we can give you a good amount for it. It doesn't matter if you don't like what we have on our lot, we can transfer it from any carmax for a non refundable fee."

I just don't really like them, very pushy and set on a price.

Before I baught my Jeep, the wife and I went to carmax. We nearly baught a 04' for $18,000+ all the tax, and other B.S. that goes with it.
They will not negotiate with you, at all, not even for the B.S.
Plus the sales dweeb didn’t know anything about Jeeps, to quote him “it has rack and pinion steering!”

Jeeps I'm not so sure about, but my parents bought their suburban from carmax in 2000 (a 1999 suburban) and they have only had 2 big problems with it. They bought it with 17k miles for $28k and it is well equipped. It now has 137k miles and only problems have been busted water pump (shit happens), and a severely screwed manifold (factory defect something to do with corrosive coolant), and a busted caliper (didn't release, overheated and smoked after 20 miles). Apart from that no problems.

Moral of the story...They (Carmax) may overcharge big-time, but they sell good stuff (in my experience).
