So, i'm preparing to purchase my first car and I'm very excited. This car is a vehicle I'm going to have for a while. At the very minimum, up through college (I'm a junior in High School right now), therefore getting a cheap clunker is not very optimal. I've been looking at a lot of CPOs online, and so far I've looked in person at a 2011 Toyota Yaris, 2012 Mazda3, and I also looked at a new 2014 Mazda2. I decided today to look at CarMax and see what they offered and I was surprised to find a 2011 Mazda3 with the same options and less miles as the CPO Mazda3 for almost $4k less! As I continued to look through their inventory I was finding better deals left and right! a 2013 Yaris (much better styling than the 2011 Yaris I looked at) for $2k less! ($13k vs. $11k). Now, I'm curious. Has anyone from MacRumors purchased a car form CarMax? Does CarMax offer any kind of warranty? Anyone have any consumer hell experiences with service or a vehicle? Would you recommend CarMax as a place to buy a car?
