Complaint Review: Carmax
Carmax12800 Tuckahoe Creek Parkway, Richmond, VA 23238 Plano, Texas United States of America
Carmax also Maxcare ,seems to be wholly owned by Carmax, but hides that fact when trying to settle issues! deceptive trade practices, specifically false advertising and making false statements about the car we purchased Plano, Texas
Less than 6 months after buying, my son was fortunately not killed in a catastophic mechanical failure involving a flywheel breaking, clutch locking, brakes locking up, and car freezing in 2nd gear! After managing to kill the engine and get in a safe place, he called Carmax of Arlington and was told "do not bring the car here, we can not fix; take to the BMW dealership". So, he did. And the service department tried to work with Maxcare to make repairs . . until Maxcare would not send "an inspector" and kept delaying the repairs - even though a rental car bill was accruing daily! Finally, after 21 days of delay tactics through Maxcare and 21 days of rental car bills on a driver under 25 - my son picked up his "new" car. Maxcare refused to pay for the flywheel and clutch (saying that driver skills caused failure) and paid only for the broken drive chain and 7 days of rental!!! Without a doubt, this has been the biggest financial fiasco I have experienced in some time! And Carmax corporate response - they only decided to pay a portion of the costs when they realized -- wait for it --- they inadvertently gave me all the financial info on the former owner and that is how I found out how much they had lied when I was buying the car! Let's talk all levels of malfeasance and corruptness!
