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.
They made sure I got the Truck that fit my needs. Great sales staff and service. My truck did not have a spair tire and was reimbursed what I paid for it. They registered my truck and got me a new Desert Storm Veteran plate. Thanks!
Harper made buying a car fun instead of the stressful experiences I have had in the past. They never made me feel pressured and let me come in anytime for a quick test drive without taking an hour of my time to sell me on whatever vehicle I wanted to test drive that day during my short lunch break. I would recommend Harper to anyone looking to buy a car!
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.
Scheduled an appointment for a recall issue. was told it would take 2 hours to complete. Service tech, Mr. Aquilera was very personable, pleasant and professional. appointment only took 1 hour. excellent service.

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.
Overall it was good. They are a good service if you know what you want and go in with that in mind. A little pushy, but like I said, I knew what I wanted and got what they had in that style. I would recommend if you are in the same catagory.
inquired about used car online. was informed an employee was considering it for his daughter. was later informed employee did in fact buy the car. It was a fun inquiry. I bought a similar car from a private individual later that same day. the online salesman was very professional and polite. I have bought from Reeder before. They have good quality used cars.
