What are the Reviews like for CarMax Raleigh?

Customers generally report having a good experience at the Raleigh CarMax retailers. The car buying experience will most likely depend on who the car salesman is. Those who are fortunate enough to work with a good sales associate will praise them and the customer service they received. Likewise, ending up with a rep who is only there to sell cars and is not helpful results in a poor review.

Below are ratings from reputable sources:

  • Yelp: 3 out of 5 stars

A common complaint that is made is in regard to the service department and their lack of welcoming customer service, as well as repeat repairs. Many CarMax customers have left warnings to future buyers to be sure to purchase the extended warranty to avoid paying out-of-pocket for hidden or unexpected repairs. Additionally, several customers did not have a good financing experience. There are multiple stories of customers being pre-approved for an auto loan, and then showing up to the dealership and being told that was not the case. Be sure to do your research on all financing options before finalizing your purchase. Additionally, financing outside of CarMax may help to avoid situations like this, as well as potentially receiving a lower interest rate than CarMax can offer.

How many vehicles does CarMax Raleigh Offer?

As of January 2021, CarMax Raleigh has an available inventory of 341 vehicles. Through some data analysis, we found that most of the inventory is made up of Honda, Toyota and Nissan vehicles. When it comes to the age and mileage of the cars, the majority of available vehicles are between model years 2017-2019 and have somewhere between 20,000 to 50,000 existing miles. Older vehicles with higher mileage, as well as newer vehicles with low mileage are also for sale at this location.
