Carmax - A Dream car... Yeah Right
2005 Aveo - Complaint
MODESTO, CALIFORNIA -- We all hear stories about friends, or just plain out strangers buying cars and a few short months down the line, their dream vehicle is sitting in the driveway collecting dust, unable to drive it but still have to pay for it. Well unfortunately that's my 'car' story and I'm sticking to it. Well pretty much, I don't have a choice but to stick with it.
About six months ago I bought a car from Carmax, the sales associate was very nice, helpful..Actually the whole entire staff was so I never thought negative about the whole situation. I test drove a 2005 Chevy Aveo. I fell in love with the car, my very own car I bought and saved up for. They showed me a report on the vehicle said it was inspected up and down, sideways back and forth you name it they inspected it. The car even came with a certificate stating it has been though various tests and protocols. I couldn't afford the warranty but didn't think it would be a big deal since the car was inspected my numerous mechanics that work at Carmax. Six months later..My car is sitting..Collecting dust...I'm unable to fix it because I still got to make the payments and the repairs to my car are equivalent to buying a whole another car. The timing belt broke after just six months of having the car. I'm just thankful nothing happened to my family and I because I was on the freeway when the car broke down.
