Carmax San Gabriel Valley/Duarte Complaint - Classic Bait and Switch

Review by Z06 on 2009-04-23
DUARTE, CALIFORNIA -- Just purchased a vehicle from Carmax Duarte, CA. When the sales person placed an 'order' they immediately took the car from the inventory list. Now, this is where things get interesting. The price mysteriously got raised $2,000, and tried to write up a contract based on this. I have heard similar incident from others online. When you do see a car you like, make sure that you print the details prior to visiting the dealership. Also, use your own finance company/banks and walk in there with already approved finance papers.

Everyone is out there to make a dime, but if you are so naive to believe Carmax's slogan... Think twice.

Was the price raised due to dealer's fees and dmv fees? Did the price raise after you signed any paperwork?
