CarMax, as you may know, will appraise your car and buy it off you for a reasonable sum so long as it fits their criteria. If it isn”t the type of car they would typically be interested in, it’s likely they will make you a low ball offer in order to either turn you away or ensure they can still make a good profit on the vehicle – a lesson Doug Demuro recently found out after trying to take his Dodge Viper to CarMax.
Demuro’s Viper is a 1997 model year Viper GTS in the desirable blue and white color combo. CarMax is in the business of selling economy cars and family haulers mostly, so they didn’t really express much interest in the Viper when Demuro brought it by for an appraisal. He paid $35,000 for the car and let’s just say they offer to buy it off him for much, much less.
