Carmax SUCKS!!!

So I know Im gonna take crap for this, but I took my 2008FX4 Crew cab to carmax to try and trade it in. To start with its a red FX4 crew cab short bed, 6 disc media player, 20" wheels, 6.4 Diesel, BLAH BLAH BLAH. But KBB on it is $31000-$36000 depending on condition. Even carmax said its in excellent shape, but they gave me a low ball rediculous estimate of $26000. What bull****, sorry just had to vent cuz its pissed me off.

yea i couldnt believe that crap, it was rediculos considering i still owe 33 on it. Hell if they woulda even given me a half decent deal, i woulda take it even for a slight lose. But I know they can get about 36 for it, i didnt think they would try to blantently screw me over

Really, you didn't think a car dealer would try to screw you? That's what they do. When I looked into trading my 05 and trade value on it was still $24K, a Ford dealer would only offer me $16K on it in trade for another brand new Superduty. No thanks.

I actually had a great experience last week. took my 2006 F150 in to get appraised, KBB was 11,500 in good condition, they offered 14,000. Sold it to them 2 days later. No pressure, smooth transaction.

Why would you let their offer piss you off? If you don't like it you don't have to sell it to them.
