Default Any issues selling to Carvana, CarGurus, etc?

Need to seek the wife's jeep and wondering if they do any weird last minute nonsense.

Don't know about the online people, but Carmax did great for me these past few years. A quick inspection and they cut me a check for more than fair value.

I sold my '18 Explorer Sport to Carvana last year. It was probably the easiest car deal I have ever done. It was done all online, filled out all the info on their website including my lien holder (FoMoCo Credit). In a few days they showed up, looked over the vehicle, wrote down the milage and VIN, I signed the paperwork and they left. They put a lock box on the window with the keys and few hours later a tow truck showed up and took it away.

No haggling, no waiting for the salesperson to go talk to the manager, no let them hold on to your keys, no bullshit. I did see where the re-sold it for $3500. more than what they paid me, but hey that's business. If wanted the extra $3500. I would have had to list it and deal with morons.

My '21 Aviator I ordered came early and those thieves at Lincoln offered $5k less than Carvana for my Explorer. I didn't have to put anything down and I had to give Carvana a check for $1k to pay off the difference I owed and that was fine with me. Out of the three Carvana, Zoom and Carmax, Carvana offered the most.

Carmax made about $1200 on my camaro and they lost their ass on my Mustang. They moved it all over the place, finally sold it for $2000 less than they gave me.

Fuck that place. I finally sold my FILs S-10 last Friday, but 63+ people inquired about it and only two people out of the 63 actually showed up and only one person bought it. I had to buy a burner phone (highly recommend doing this) and if you do go this route be prepared for all kinds of stupid offers and ignorant people. In the end it sold but it took almost three months and lots of dealing with morons.
