I don't have experience buying from Carmax but what does the "No Haggle" pricing exactly mean? Is it that they will not negotiate at all? unlike other car dealerships?

Also, is Carmax a recommended place to buy used cars or are there better options out there?

    Thank you.

    You mentioned explore and try out - does that mean that it may not be a good place to actually buy one? I am in the market for a used car and wanted to see if I should consider them for actually purchasing the vehicle.

    Carmax prices could be used to haggle with the dealerships for their Certified Pre-Owned cars :smile:

    There you go...another strategy from carboy!

    As for 'what's the best place', I think the car and the price have to speak for themselves. If it's the car you want at the price you want, and you have written warranties (when applicable), then that's the best place for you.

    Car you like is the car best for you :smile:

    Important factors for me which I always check for :
    Mileage, number of owners, no fleet or rental, clean inside and blemish free outside, clean under the hood : no oil leaks, no battery leakage,, no rust, hoses in new condition, oil level full with clean oil, coolant looking fresh, ....
    Peek under the car for rust and oil leaks.
    wheels and tires good condition.

    Thats my idea of a car I would buy as used if it meets those criteria.

    Thanks but do places such as CarMax stock such used cars - pretty much all cars that I saw had a fleet/rental record against it. What are the other (better) places where I can find cars that do not have a fleet/rental record against them?

    Every used car has to speak for itself. Being a fleet/rental car isn't necessarily a reason not to buy one.

    CPO cars at the dealerships are the best used cars. Guaranteed single owner lease returned cars.
