I just did it for fun, don't really care. If it would have told me $36k I'd have sighed though lol

20 days later my Tacoma was 3800 less and thru vroom it went up $600. I hear they like to play games

So, you guys like doing business with Carvana more than Vroom?

Vroom offers more for used cars but I heard several people had issues with them.

I checked on my impala, Carvana and another place offered 17k for it. That's only 5k less than I paid for it 4 years ago. I'm very tempted to unload it and buy a half ton pickup.

This is no big deal IMO. Carvana buys and sells a shit ton of cars.
They just cut corners and Skipped all the BS we have to deal with the DMV.




“NCDMV said Carvana failed to deliver titles to the department, sold a motor vehicle without a state inspection, and issued out-of-state temporary tags/plates for a vehicle sold to a person in North Carolina.
Carvana and NCDMV reached an agreement that revokes the Wake County location’s license until Jan. 29, 2022. The suspension began Aug. 2.
The agreement states that Carvana must cease all activities at its Navaho Drive location that require a dealer’s license – which includes the sale or attempted sale of a motor vehicle and delivery of a motor vehicle by Carvana.”

I just appraised my Camaro on Carmax website and they offered me more than both Carvana and Vroom. Maybe it’s bait, they want me to come in. So I’ll trade it in. Buy another car. Lol. Fuck that. All I want to do is sell.

Did any of you guys sell your cars to Carmax?

Even before carvana and vroom people sold cars to carmax often, it's totally legit.

Your car is in perfect shape I'm sure so if they don't honor the online quote in person, you know they're just being sketchy. Take a trip out there.

As long as the vehicle isn't modified or been in an accident Carmax will buy your car for a decent value. Minute anything isn't factory they give you an auction value which is pennies on the dollar.

I’m not surprised that dealership is asking so much for that GTI. Lol..

But, I hope at least by next spring the dealers new car inventory will get better.

Only with Ford Leases. Ford will NOT allow places like Carvana or Vroom buy there cars. Has to go to Ford dealer. NEVER had an issue with Chrysler or really any other manufacturer.

If it’s a lease he or she might have too buy it first and pay tax on the vehicle since technically they don’t own it. Or u can get a dealer buy out which will be more than customer buy out.

For my lease I had to buy it out and then go to dmv and put the vehicle in my name and pay tax and pay extra for a over night title and then sell it to vroom or carvana. It took about 25-30 days for everything to be complete.

Which sucks to pay taxes and take that lose. That was toyota? I have definitely done Chrysler /BMW/KIA and could just sell the car to any dealer without jumping through those hoops and losing that extra money.

Carvana wasn’t able to buy a leased Infiniti. They ended up trading the Infiniti in instead with no issues at the Caddy dealer.

I get it but technically I didn’t own it. If u look at a registration card it clearly has the bank first in a lease. It was 2k in tax it did suck paying it but it all worked out at the end

Those that have sold w/ Carvana or Vroom - do they care about how clean the interior/exterior is? My MIL is asking - even though her car is damn near spotless... She's like "should I wash it? vacuum it?" I said no because they're going to detail it anyway..

I can tell you this. I spent couple hours detailing my RAM truck before I dropped it off at Carvana. I asked at drop off if they cared if people cleaned them up. They laughed and said NOPE. I mean they barely even look the thing over. I have sold two cars and I would not think about cleaning shit ever again. They are just going to hand it off and do a 30 minute detail job on it anyway.

I spent about 20 minutes talking to Vroom's pickup driver. They don't care. He said 90+% of the time it goes directly to auction. Sometimes he said they will buy nice cars. My minty MDX went right to the auction house in Schaumburg. Vroom had it right on the bill of lading.
