CarMaxBirminghamALNot So Hot  
Comments: My main complaint was trade-in lowballing that I experienced at this franchise dealership. They offer a cash price "good for seven days", which is supposed to be the same as the trade-in price. Of course there was a feel-good "tax allowance" of 3.5 percent of this lowball cash value in case I wanted to trade. But the price I was offered was well below that of the reputable car-price research companies: Black Book, NADA, and Kelley Blue Book. Specifically, my CarMax offer was $1200 for a 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan SE with 104000 miles, a small scratch on the quarter panel, and a stain on the carpeting. With these minor faults, I estimated that the condition for my vehicle was "Average", according to the NADA rating. The three reputable price books give an "average" or "good" book value in the same ballpark of $2000 ($1975 to $2050.)

Comments: I used FightingChance.com
Medford FordEufaulaALPoorTony DarriganPoor
Comments: I did not buy anything yet. I went in to get brochures on a couple of different models. I live on dirt road and I am looking for a vehicle that is not built like a car. Tony wanted to argue with me about how a Ford Escape is built. Then he had the nerve to call me sweetheart. I recommend that no woman ever deal with this Neanderthal.
Palmers Toyota SuperstoreMobileALPoor  
Comments: The buying experience was ok and the price was the same at other dealerships, but Palmers Toyota of Mobile has the most unprofessional service department that I have ever experienced at a Toyota dealership. They need a change of management in the service department. They refuse to honor Toyota's factory warranty on several items. Do not take your car there for service. Take your vehicle to any of the other Toyota dealerships for service to avoid all the hassle. Toyota is a good product. Take your business elsewhere.

Comments: I recommend this website to everyone thinking of buying a new car! The tips here really do work, and will save you lots of headaches and trouble.

Comments: I enjoy your site and believe in what you are doing. Your site helps promote fair trade practices by not only empowering the consumer but also by allowing the dealers to better understand the concerns and fears of their customers. Knowledge is power, and an informed consumer is less likely to be victimized. Which, to me, explains all the belligerent, yet insanely entertaining e-mails you get from dealers who obviously fear the informed consumer. I guess when deception is the only tactic available to you, a knowledgeable and confident consumer must be like kryptonite. Good thing most car dealers are NOT con artists. Keep up the good work.
Tim Whitehead Chrysler Dodge DealerEnterpriseALExcellent  
Comments: Had all my rebates and THE FOLDER when I arrived at the Dealership; I showed them vehicle research papers and I wind up getting $1600 off invoice and free car washes for a year and it took little haggling, I was an informed shopper this time thanks to your advice. Thanks
