I both bought and sold a car here recently. My sales associate CARLTON BOWEN was fantastic.
SOLD: They gave me a very fair price on a 2003 Honda CRV with roughly 180K miles. The process was quick and painless. You do not have to buy a car from them to sell a car to them. I had done my homework before and knew what it was worth and I was offered a price higher than Kelly Blue Book.
BUY: Buying a used car was more complicated. It took test driving many and lots of time on their website before I found one that met the very specific details I was looking for. I decided on CarMax because I did have a very specific car in mind that I had not been able to find private seller in the two plus months I'd been looking. Also, my sales associate CARLTON BOWEN was fantastic.He spent roughly a month helping me look at cars making calls to other dealerships and coordinating multiple test drives etc. I know having him as a salesperson made a huge difference. I had looked at other dealerships and was treated only like a wallet from the moment I entered. He worked hard to help me find what I needed in a car and was pleasant and respectful the entire time. Not at all the experience I had at other dealerships. With all of the hidden fees etc other places have, carmax was not more expensive. I was glad not to give my money to sketchy people at another place.
Love my Mazda!

I don’t know if it was because I updated from a 2008 to a 2015, but my Mazda3 Hatchback is one of the best vehicles in its class. Even for a 2015, now almost 4 years old, still on the same level as some 2017’s on the road. The interior creates a minimal yet luxury feel. But I think one of its greatest aspects is simply its drive. Can drive over bumps, rough road, and sharp turns with ease. No cheap ’rickity’ feel or sound. Extremely sturdy and soft on the road, if that makes sense. Definitely recommend!
I recommend the Mazda product and Sales rep, Elijah Taylor, great and great. Ben M in finance ruined the whole experience because he threw a tantrum when I did not wish to hear and or purchase extended warranty product. To the point of demanding why I would not listen to his whole sales pitch and confronting my spouse as to why she would not say anything. He has issues but I am choosing to give Elijah the 5 stars he deserves. The other guy is creepy and should never be left alone with customers.

I bought it because it looked cool and I have never heard anything bad about Mazda. After two months of owning this car it has met all my expectations and then some! It’s teally fun and comfortable to drive. Really enjoy it and would highly recommend buying one
It will take a week to get your car looked at because they are so busy, but they fixed my truck quickly and properly with daily updates. Great service. And I highly recommend buying the 2-3 year warrenty. I'm very very thankful I did.
Still stretching it out but wow!!!

By far the best car I have ever known.... glad I got the 2.0 never tested the 2.5 but I dont trust myself with it. Superb driving experience.
Very helpful staff and were very honest/up front upon purchasing my vehicle. Larry and Ron helped me with my purchase of Kia Optima. They also reviewed the carfax before purchasing the vehicle.
Great looks, solid performer

Bought this car used, and it was "only" the Sport trim. So push button start but no keyless entry. Great car for my son though. Looks good, drives great and performs very solidly. Important is reliable bluetooth and fairly intuitive entertainment as this means fewer distractions and more eyes on the road.
