Quality, value, service, and a company you can trust

15 great reasons to start at CarMax

  • Low, no-haggle prices

    Get a fair price up front without spending hours negotiating for it.

  • Flexible financing options

    We work with a variety of financial institutions to provide the best possible financing. If approved, you see your offers when we do—just choose the one that’s right for you. If you find a better option, you have three business days to refinance, penalty- and interest-free.

  • Thousands of cars priced under $12,000

    With over 35,000 cars in stock across the country, you're sure to find a car that fits your needs and budget. Most can be transferred to a store near you, often for free!

  • Our Sales Consultants are paid the same

    Fixed commissions (except in CA) put their best interests in line with yours, so they can focus on helping to find the car that best fits your needs.

  • 125+ point inspection*

    Experienced technicians put every vehicle through a rigorous Certified Quality Inspection—over 125 points must check out before it meets our high standards.

    *CarMax does not guarantee a recall-free vehicle.

  • No cars with flood or frame damage

    Not every car that looks good is good. We’re confident in the safety and reliability of our vehicles because our technicians are trained to detect those with hidden damage.

  • Every used car is renewed

    CarMax cars undergo (on average) 12 hours of renewing—sandwiched between two meticulous inspections—for a car that doesn’t look or feel used.

  • Free Full Vehicle History Report

    Every used car we sell comes with one, available online or from your Sales Consultant.

  • Clean Title Guarantee

    We guarantee every car to have accurate mileage and not ever to have been designated salvaged or flood-damaged—or we'll buy it back.

  • 5-Day Money-Back Guarantee

    If you change your mind for any reason, you can return a car hassle-free within 5 days.

    (See your Sales Consultant for written details.)

  • Limited 30-Day Warranty (60-Day in CT, 90-Day in MA and NY)

    Repairs made under warranty cost you nothing—parts and labor are included.

  • MaxCare® extended service plans

    Enjoy added security with purchase of an available MaxCare Extended Service Plan—you can choose one that meets your driving needs, and include the cost in your financing!

  • Nearly every make and model all in one place

    Don’t drive all over town to find the vehicle you need. Almost all of our stores carry over 30 top brands—from Acura to Volvo.

  • We'll buy your car even if you don't buy ours®

    We’ll buy any car we appraise, regardless of make, mileage, or condition. And your offer will be the same, whether you buy from us or not. Bring in your car today!
