*General Comment: Even Kelly blue Book has several different Values
I am about to be laid off from my job so I went to Carmax in Hickory NC to sell my car. I have a loan and the payoff is $5603.33, I checked Kelley Blue Book and I had all my maintenance. records, the car is less than perfect but there are no major defects. The value that Kelley Blue Book placed on the car in the condition was $7319.00, I had already assumed that I would not get that, but that is what the industry standard is for my car.
When I arrived and got going I got the whole Carmax story about how they have 141 locations and their own auction, and how they do not use any other figures, or any such thing as Kelley, which has been a hugh part of the car industry as long as I can remember. That is when I knew that I was going to get low balled. The offer was for $3000.00 dollars, I literally laughed in the guys face. That was borderline criminal in my mind as it seemed that they wanted to rob me.
They would have given me $2603.33 less that the my loan, it would have been $4319.00 dollars less that the Kelley trade in value. That is highway robbery at it's best. I suggest that you avoid Carmax at all cost, it is time that we as American consumers take a proactive roll in containing these predatory companies, and stop sitting back letting them rob our friends and neighbors.
