Re: CarMax vs. Good Ol Fashion Stealership The only dealings i ever had with Carmax was to off load out old cars. They tended to give a better deal then a dealer.
As for a car loan, what about going to a bank? I talked to my local bank and the person there said that they will give a loan, no matter how bad the credit history. Though she added that it will effect interest rates.
Bu you could get pre-approved by a bank, and know how much car you can afford when you go shopping. That way the dealer can't add extras to the paper work.
For example my truck was listed at 28k. A nearby dealer was selling the same truck with hail damage, for 21k. The dealer at 28k said ok, 21k no problem.
By the time the paper work was done, we owed 29k. They managed to tack on 8k in fees onto the paper work. Well, ok, it was called interest. Paid over 5 years.
Is a person a failure for doing nothing? Or is he a failure for trying, and not succeeding at what he is attempting to do? What did you fail at today?.
