I'm planning to get a used (2008, 09 or 10) luxury Suv.

Q1) What's your opinion on buying CarMax vs cars.com/autotrader.com etc vs Going to Dealership.

I have shortlisted to the following
Still in shortlist
Lexus RX 350
Lincoln MKX

Out from list
- Acura MDX (didn't like it), BMW X5 (costly), Navigator (costly and we are looking only for 5 seater for now).

Q2) What else I can look at, before making a choice?

Thanks for your inputs..

I like Carmax. We've gotten great deals there over the years though on occassion I have had them send in the car we wanted from out of sight. The trick with Carmax is to be really patient and wait for the car you want, at the price you want to show up anyplace around the country.

I have nothing bad to say about Carmax. The service and price have always been good and our cars last and last. In fact, my sister just got a Land Rover last year and is now a Carmax fan, after years of only buying new from the dealership.


By the way, there is a very nice African man named John at the Carmax on South Blvd. who is not at all pushy and very helpful.
