Our purpose

To drive integrity by being honest & transparent in every interaction.

Who we are

At CarMax, our commitment to innovation and iconic customer experiences have made us the nation's largest retailer of used cars. As the original disruptor of the automotive industry, our “no-haggle” prices transformed car buying and selling from a stressful, dreaded event into the honest, straightforward experience all people deserve. We've been raising the bar on customer experiences ever since.

Today, our customers have the ability to buy completely on their terms, whether that's online, in the store, or using a seamless combination of both. And as we move into the future, we stay committed to transparency, to creating offerings that put you in control, and delivering iconic car buying experiences unlike any you've seen before.
