truck is great but carmax is horrible

the truck is great but the service at carmax is horrible. I entered in all the purchasing and financing information online at home. then when I arrived at carmax they drug me through the same process that took four hours longer than when I entered the information online. either their sales force is incompetent or their software is geriatric

Excellent Price and Great Ride

Carmax took the hassle out of purchasing a vehicle as I didn't have to go through the lengthy process at our courthouse with taxes, tags and registration. In fact, the courthouse owed me a little bit of change when all was said and done. And, when we left Carmax in our Silverado, I didn't need to do anything except to make certain that our insurance was transferred from my 2013 Silverado to my 2016, and that was a walk in the park.


  • Fuel Economy: I have never seen a 5.3 liter V8 motor in any pickup get an average of 18 - 19 MPG, ever and it has even reached 21.5 MPG which is my new goal to beat.

  • Technology and Entertainment:


  • Technology and Entertainment: I have nothing to report on any cons at this time.

More than I had expected

When I went looking for an upgrade from my 2013 Silverado, I had looked at many different dealers and was not impressed with any of them until I checked out CarMax. When I pulled up the year, make and style, I found what I was looking for pertaining to the price range, features, milage and color. The moment I laid eyes on one particular Silverado, I requested an appointment to go an hours drive to this CarMax to look over their Silverado. I received word from them that they had accepted my request and stated that it would be ready form me upon arrival. It was, I was greeted by Paul and went through all of the standard procedures directly after test driving the truck which I fell in love with immediately. I had a price in mind for my trade in and they exceeded it, I had a payment limit I wanted to stay in and they came into my range without me having to tell them what it was and in the end, I drove the truck home!!! What really took me by surprise is that CarMax took care of ALL of the paperwork, meaning the vehicle's registration, fees, taxes, etc so the only thing I have to do is to go to our Licensing and Registration office in our courthouse and pickup the registration only. They also took care of our temporary registration to keep in the vehicle and included a copy of our proof of insurance that CarMax sent to our courthouse, also, until I receive word that it is time to go to the courthouse to pick up the paperwork. I have Always had to go through all of these procedures until we found CarMax. Now, a point of additional interest, I read a lot of reviews here and I have to say that those who gave poor reviews, well, not everyone can get along with businesses and personalities will clash. One must look inward to help understand any negative experiences and one key issue is presentation of one's self. I learned while I was in law enforcement that one's attitude makes a huge difference when it comes to the outcome of any meeting, confrontation. Expect to be treated the way one treats another is my experience so with this in mind, I do not personally believe that the negative reviews posted about CarMax are true, but this is my opinion. Thank You CarMax for making our purchase more pleasant and easier than any I have ever experienced!!!! At this time, I can Not think of any cons about our new truck!


  • Ride and Handling: I have yet to drive a vehicle that tracked as well as this vehicle and ease of keeping the vehicle stable under all wind conditions.
  • Technology and Entertainment: I really enjoy the many different info screens to obtain any and all information that I like to keep track of.
  • Cabin Noise: This is the quietest pickup I have ever driven or been in at highway speeds. I can hear sounds that I could Never hear in my previous pickup.
