After checking all around for a lightly used Honda or Toyota minivan, I settled on CarMax since they had the ability to transfer several possible cars from nearby stores. I requested a transfer from Birmingham and it arrived earlier than promised. I test drove it, waited a week to make a final decision and made the purchase. The whole transaction was done professionally and without any extra sales pressure or tactics. This is the 2nd car in the last 6 years I've bought from CarMax and I'd certainly shop them again.
Joe Johnson went above and beyond the call of duty.

I absolutely love the vehicle I purchased from Landers McLarty with the help of Joe Johnson. He went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that I was happy and that I had a great experience at this dealership. I really appreciate everything Joe did and all the help he gave and provided to me.
This is the second time I purchased a vehicle from this dealership. I am now a loyal Altima owner. DJ made this experience smooth and very pleasant. Gone is the hard sell and in its place is a respect for the customer and a sincere effort to find the customer exactly what they are looking for. I came in knowing exactly what I was looking for and DJ was able to provide me with reasonable options and an extensive knowledge of the product line. He was diligent and went out of his way to ensure we had a satisfying purchase experience. Sylvester in Finance was terrific as well - pleasant and ensured that we got the best financing option available to him.
Erik Brown was very knowledgeable, friendly, and personable. He showed us what we first asked about but he listened to our comments / wants and showed us a vehicle that fit us and we ultimately purchased. He showed us the different features of the vehicle and assisted us in setting up items we weren't familiar with. Gary(used car sales) and Dan (financing) were also extremely helpful & friendly. Gary worked with us to come to terms we were satisfied with and Dan provided options (one that I chose) to provide better future service. The only reason I didn't rate the Buying Process as excellent was because your computer system was up & down and it took 2.5 hours to get the paperwork completed.
We were on our way to Florida when our cars transmission started giving us trouble. We stopped at auto zone and they referred us to your Chevy dealership. It was on a Saturday so we left our car and was contacted Monday morning by your repair shop. Everything was taken care of and we picked up our car the following Saturday. Excellent customer service!!
Bought my car in March. I couldnt have had a better buying experience. The purchase agreement was for first free oil change and tire rotation. I called and scheduled the appointment, arrived early, and went to the service department to sign in. Lets just say, there`s more personality in lettuce. The whole service department had a very stressful, lets dont make eye contact kind of feeling. The customers in the waiting room were wonderful - the Lynn Layton service emplyees, not so much. Being I live an hour away, I wont be going back. I was very disappointed after such a great buying experience.
We traveled 2 hours to purchase our new Tahoe. We did most of our negotiations via phone and text message. Doug Maddux was wonderful. They gave us a great price on the new vehicle, a great price on my trade in, and had everything ready for us to take possession quickly after we arrived. I highly recommend you give them a look if you are shopping for a vehicle!
Vroom rushed me thru the process of purchasing a vehicle from them. Had strict requirements of receiving payment within 48 hours. I was rushing my loan department to get my paperwork completed ahead of other customers in fear of losing the vehicle I wanted to another buyer. The loan paperwork and a check had to be overnighted to Vroom to meet their qualifications. THEN CAME TIME FOR THEM TO GET THE THINGS I NEEDED TO ME!!! I HAD TO REPEATEDLY ASK ABOUT THE ARRIVAL OF MY TRADE IN TO THEIR FACILITY (which they kept telling me for 15 days that it hadn???t reached their facility??!! Yeah right)!! THEY DRUG THEIR FEET ON SENDING THE PAYOFF OF MY TRADE IN SO LONG THAT THE 15 Day PAYOFF THEY WERE QUOTED EXPIRED AND I HAD TO PAY THE DIFFERENCE FROM MY OWN ACCOUNT!! I WAITED 26 DAYS TO RECEIVE TITLE PAPERWORK!! BUT THE PAPERWORK THEY NEEDED FROM ME HAD TO BE SENT WITHIN 2 BUSINESS DAYS!! YOU SHOULD GIVE AS GOOD AS YOU EXPECT, VROOM!! I HAD TO KEEP REQUESTING A REFUND OF THE $500 THEY CHARGED TO MY CREDIT CARD TO HOLD THE VEHICLE FOR A WEEK!!! LASTLY, the 2nd person I dealt with following the sales person was RUDE.
