Shawn McMahan is an awesome person. I came into the dealership twice looking for a car. My first visit was unsuccessful because I did not have the down payment. Shawn was incredibly understanding with my situation and tried very hard to get the lowest down payment possible. Once I found the car, I told him that I would be back in a few weeks with the down payment. He touched base with me once, but wasn't pushy and seemed genuinely concerned about my situation. On my second stop in, again, it seemed that the odds were against me. He went above and beyond to insure that I left with a car. I would HIGHLY recommend him to any of my family members and friends. Thanks again, Shawn, from the bottom of my heart!
What I expected

There was nothing new to this leaf. I've researched them a lot and test drove one other one. This one was on par with what I've seen/drove. My mine focus was on the drive range depletion while driving. I drove 20 miles but only lost 15 miles in drive range thanks to the braking regeneration.
Ed and staff were great. We came in from outta state, they stayed open late for us. Ed even helped us with finding our way through town, What a nice guy!
It's great. But it only has a 50 mile range.

If you have specific destinations. And don't make any side trips. You should come home with 18 to 21 miles left. The 2012 leaf has a 50-mile range. The car is reliable. But it's not built for long distances. When I bought it. I didn't understand range. So I get nervous if I go too far. The computerized voice tells me once the range hits 11 miles to charge it. And there are electric charging stations, but you have to buy a membership to use them. The price is cheap. And there are a few free charging stations. But you have to look for it. And I have charged it in the rain. But I take extra precautions like putting towels on top of the extension cord and putting a towel on where the plug goes in the car. I really think I should have gotten a hybrid. Because I use the gasoline-powered car to go longer distances. Overall, I still save thousands of dollars on gasoline by using the leaf. Maybe hundreds. And the car shakes a lot of the road is bumpy. So don't drink any water before traveling. But if the road is smooth, then the car is a great drive.

Was having such a hard time getting a vehicle & something that I liked. This place was awesome & the people were great! They worked very hard to help me. I will be going here for any service the vehicle may need as well as future purchases..
FUN Battery EV, low maintenance/great safety stats
by lspooz from Greensboro

Funky style exterior, a blast to drive, safety ratings are great - a perfect car for college student/second car (LOW maintenance/no gas to buy).
Only drawback is limited range, so make sure battery capacity is good when purchasing used (ideally would still be within the original 60 month warrant)
I worked with Jan from Carvana- she was able to explain to me the process, make sure I was comfortable with where it was at, was able to be reached and kept communication open. The pick up process went smoothly and I was able to sell my car without any glitches.

Too soon to tell as we've just purchased the car, but at this point the car feels solid and drives well, with good acceleration.
Visibility is good. A bit tight in the cockpit with limited storage.
Should prove to be excellent around town and on shorter (150 miles) trips or less. Looking forward to driving this car and not having to stop at gas stations!
After visiting several of the typical dealerships I walked away confused and Unsatisfied. After visiting Carvana.com I picked out a vehicle to my liking and price point fill out the paperwork got approval I had my new vehicle delivered to my front door. Most typical dealerships you spend half a day walking away with an overpriced vehicle in an overpriced interest-rate. Carvana has made it an enjoyable experience and it can be done from the luxury of your Home. Thanks Carvana.
It's like driving the future!

This car has been a great commuter car. It's been reliable and easy to maintain! The electric torque and power makes such a fun driving experience! Charging this car with a full charge only costs about $1, to provide up to about 70-80 miles commute. The A/C is by far the best performing of any car I have owned!
My experience with carvana was and still is very good. I wanted to sell my can a few months ago and Madison was super nice. Undirtunately I had to cancel the sell bc of personal reasons. Now I???m again in the process of selling and Madison is super patient with me and so nice!
Extremely reliable, fun and zippy to drive!

This has been a great car. It fits our family of 3 perfectly with room to spare. Charges easily and quickly. Saves thousands a year on gas!!
I posted my car on Craigslist. Never heard of Caravana before. Tom Perkins called me and told me about Caravan. He send me the link. Put a few information and walaaa, got my reasonable offer for my car. I attached a picture of my drivers license and the title of the car on the website. Made appointment to have them pick up the car, gave me my check......done. Seriously, it was that easy. Tom Perkins followed up the whole time with a text how the process is going. Best service. If you want sell your car with no hassle, go with Caravan. Thanks for the best service Tom.
Excellent Commuter Car - Saved Me A Ton
by RVG from LA, CA

This is a great commuter car. I was spending a couple hundred dollars a month on gas before I got this car. My work has free EV chargers so the increase in my power bill is minimal. I bought this car used and my car payment is about what I was paying monthly for gas. Such a blessing...
Found the vehicle we were looking for online. Stopped in before work for a test drive, Mike Banton helped us. No pressure, super friendly and helpful. Put a deposit down on the car and came back a couple days later to process the paperwork. Everything went great, no problems. Mike made this the best car buying experience of all time. If you are looking for a car, stop in and see Mike!!! he will treat you right.
Good for the buck.

This car is a good option to buy used to save money on gas. But not a dream car as the design is disappointing in my option. The range as well isn't great. But it's a decent car that I won't mind driving.
We were a bit worried about the whole negotiation process but things went really well. We were given one offer, told them where we needed to be, they matched our budget and off we went filling out paperwork. Mike (Sales), BJ (Finance) Dan (Customer Service, and Dillon (Mechanic) were all fantastic to work with.
