Most professional group of people I have ever worked with ! Financing was awesome,fast and efficient . I have never bought from a dealership that had me in and out within 2 hours. No Pressure ! No Hassle ! I was VERY impressed with my experience today . I am even more impressed with the GREAT deal I got on the Dodge Ram truck I drove off the lot with . I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy their next vehicle and I will be back in the future . Pay no attention to some of the petty reviews written here and I noticed there are a few . Go down use some common business sense ,do your research before you buy , and you will find Car Max has it all !
I had a great experience at Knoxville carmax location.
I went in with vehicle I wanted transferred and it was available within 5 days, even though it was quite a distance from Knoxville (Boston). Will Purvis, my sales consultant, was great to work with! I don't plan to ever buy a vehicle anywhere else again!! Thanks Will and Knoxville carmax staff!
We are new to United States only 1.5yrs. To make it worse we moved from Illinois to Tennessee and we have only been here for 7minths. We really needed a second car as me and my wife we have only relied on one car forcing us not to maximize on our working hours. As you know USA I runned on credit we didn't even have a score since my credit card was only 4months old. When I started shopping for a car I needed someone who will accept our credit status.
I came across car max through google chrome and through their website I looked for the cars they advertised and singled out two Hyundai Elantra. My wife is new in the road so she really needed small car. It did not take 20min after I saved the car on their website. A sales representative Chris called me. He professionally introduced himself and promised to work with me. I visited the facility the next day and I loved it. Enough space to receive overwhelming customers . Chris was ready to receive me when my friend and I arrived. He gave both of us a warm firm handshake with a professional smile. I felt like I was at home though my heart was wondering whether I'll get a car due to my credit score. Chris worked with us, he guided us and in two weeks we had our car. Btw the two weeks could have been shortened if the car was here in Knoxville yard. The car was shipped at no cost to us from Lexington Kentucky to Knoxville, TN. Still I was involved in the whole process and got notified.
Bought car. Paid cash and my check reached my bank the next day . That was two weeks ago. I have not received my title yet. I will not buy another used automobile again from someone that will not give me a title for the auto whenI I pay cash for it. The title existed for this auto since it was used. Why can"t it be given to the buyer since it was a cash deal? I will have to take the Knox Co. license to my county to have it changed since they wanted to register it in Knox county.

I absolutely recommend CarMax in Knoxville to anyone that wants a smooth, friendly, hassle-free car buying experience. They do not pressure the customer and are honest about pricing. This experience has been the most positive I have ever had!!!!
My wife found the car she wanted on line and we visited the Knoxville Carmax that evening. We knew the no-haggle policy upfront, and based on previous research and the condition nand features of the car they had on the lot, we felt like their price was fair. We did not have a trade-in so I cannot address teh fairness of their trade-in values. There was no pressure from the salesman, and they took care of some minor cosmetic issues after we had already signed a sales contract. Cosmetic fixes were made very quickly and results were very high quality. I would purchase from this dealer again.
Today the guys at Ole Ben Franklin Motors in Alcoa really saved me. My 2 yr old Lincoln MKZ was showing low battery in the key so I decided to change the batteries in both key fobs. They came apart easily but over 2 hrs later a total of 4 intelligent adults were unable to put them back together, so I am thinking I have to drive all the way into Knoxville to the delearship where I purchased the car. I had company coming and really didn’t have time but my car was useless until I did. So I jumped into my old Ford truck and took off. On the way I passed Ole Ben Franklin Motors so I thought why not try to see if they could do it. I walked in and explained my problem and the first guy asked if I bought the car from them. I said no and he said OK and went right to work on the fob. After a couple of minutes he decided there must be some trick to it and walked me over to Tom Weiss the general manager. Tom immediately smiled at me, took the fob and went to work on it. It took him about 4-5 minutes but he got it together and handed it back to me. I thought I may be pushing my luck a bit but took the other fob out of the bag and asked if he would do that one too. It was in 4 pieces so soon a delightful young named Mitchell walked up and between them both they got the second one back together. THANK YOU TOM AND MITCHELL for your graciousness. I was treated like their best customer ever even though they knew I had never purchased anything from them. They are the kind of people I love doing business with so I will give them a try the next time I need a car.
If you do your homework on the car you want and they have what you want, do it! The best part was, the car was delivered to me! I felt like a baller when the car showed up in my driveway. Customer service was amazing. Best part, no pressure. Just me and my laptop, looking at all the cars until I found what I wanted. Just do your homework on the vehicle, you can't go wrong!!!!! Thank you all at VROOM........
I had very specific requirements and Vroom was the only place that had what I wanted. They offered me blue book on the trade in and the purchase with no haggling. The car was as described. The lighting on their pictures was off so much I thought the interior was gray and not black. Luckily I'm fine with black. Customer service has been great. Delivery was fast. The car came with a white residue all over it, I guess the soap they use; I had to work hard to get it off. They delivered it to me in a public place with no gas. The fuel light was on. I wanted to drive around the parking lot and acclimate my self to the car but I felt immense time pressure to get to a gas station and as a result hit the road without even adjusting the mirrors. Kind of dangerous. Right now they are having a problem getting me the title almost two months after purchase; not sure if it's Vroom's fault but at least they are politely keeping me up to date and sending me a replacement drive-out tag since the first one is about to expire. As scary as it was buying a car online, I'd say overall it has gone well and I would recommend Vroom. Be aware that the contract forces you to give up your right to sue in court. You can opt out by sending a letter to Vroom's lawyers in New York.
Like most I was very skeptical about buying a car online. But I did my research and google'd the company like crazy. What I found in my research is the company had laid off people due to rapid growth and during this time frame the reviews were not good at all. Which to me makes sense and most likely vroom could have done a better job to make sure customers did not feel the effects. But after that period the reviews were really good. Also they have a very high rating with the BBB. That all said I decided to purchase my Jeep Wrangler through Vroom. The entire process from start to finish was awesome! I did not do a trade but just a purchase. I submitted my request for finance and purchase on 7/29 Sunday morning and received a call 7/30 Monday morning. I spoke to the sales person which there was no pressure just Q&A. I put down a deposit so I could secure the Jeep. There was communication via email by Vroom throughout the process including when the Jeep was in route. My jeep was delivered within the time frame they explained, which was the following Friday 8/10 cleaned and in excellent condition. I received my tag and paperwork about a month after the Jeep was delivered. I have 3 kids so spending 4 hours at a dealership is not fun. I would definitely buy from Vroom again. I hope this review helps others who might be on the fence. (Atlanta, GA)
Found the van we wanted and filled out the paperwork and a week later I had a Honda Odyssey in my driveway. This is by far the easiest, hassle free way to buy a car. Eric Smith was phenomenal answering any questions I had and very accommodating during the entire process. I will never go to a traditional dealership to buy another car. I can not recommend vroom highly enough. Give it a try, you won???t be disappointed.
I was convinced my Mercury needed a new engine but after the service manager and tech people checked it out they determined the noise was not a problem. This saved me about $5,000.00 and there was no charge for this service.
We were also provided transportation to a local restaurant for lunch while the car was being checked.
Considering the general feeling that most auto dealers are less than truthful, I am extremely pleased with this service department.
Shopped for months for a second car. Find a clean, great running car here. The annoying tire pressure light was on. Dealership replaced the sensor as part of the buying process. Other dealers wouldn't even think of doing that. Also washed and vacuumed the car everytime they touched it. Bought from Stephen Patterson. Great dude!
The purchase was simple and easy. I will purchase my next care from VROOM. I would highly recommend buying a car from VROOM. It took about an hours over the phone and VROOM kept you posted of everything happening in the delivery process. They took care of everything. Thanks.
