Default Has anyone used Carmax to buy a vehicle?

Has anyone used Carmax, and is it worth it? Does using Carmax drive up the price of a vehicle?

The transmission on my 2003 Liberty went out, and I was lucky to sell it to someone who works on cars. Now my 2001 Dodge Dakota has problems even though it is a low-mileage truck (under 50k). I'm fed up and ready to buy something else. I'd like to buy a used, late-model Suburu Forester, so I'd like a warranty, which Carmax provides.

I have never bought from a place like that- but here are some people who posted on The Straight Dope, concerning Carmax.

Good luck in finding your new ride.

Thanks, Lollie! I was on the phone last night going over Carmax Forester prices with a friend who said the cars were very high priced, and some at that link you provided said the same thing, so I'll look elsewhere.

I just got off the phone with a friend who bought a Legacy from Carmax. She is very happy with the car and has no complaints about the deal.

The pros are that if you don't like the car you get from them you can exchange it, and you get a warranty. The major con for me is the above-average sticker price that can be 25% higher than purchasing a vehicle elsewhere. I found used Foresters at Carmax that cost almost the same as a new one, which made no sense to buy.

Caveat emptor.
You made the right decision, Amica mea.
