Carvana: Buy/Sell Used Cars for Negative User Reviews

Customer service non existentGot an offer fir my car that I accepted. I uploaded all the documents and pics required by Carvana. Once I finished the process a message saying they will review the folder and get back to me within 1 to 2 business days. It’s been several days and no one has gotten back to me. Yesterday I spent 3 hours on hold with the absolute most horrible on hold experience I’ve ever had only to be disconnected after 3 hours on hold. When calling Carvana, after the original message telling you how you’re a valued customer and that they’re doing everything possible to answer the call as quickly as possible you begin to hear music. After 30 seconds you hear a message saying “ your hold time is longer than 30 minutes”. After that the same song starts all over again only to be interrupted again after 30 seconds with the same useless piece of information that your on hold time will be greater than 30 minutes. After 3 hours on hold, still the same message that your estimated hold time will be longer than 30 minutes. Now there’s a company who is obviously not interested in giving customer service. Major thumbs down for Carvana. More like CarHell!.Version: 3.8

DisappointedThe value of being able to look over a car before purchasing it can’t be overstated. When looking at the car I was purchasing on Carvana website they showed only 2 minor chips in the paint. When I went to pick up the car I immediately noticed a large chip on the front bumper that wasn’t revealed on the site. The next few days of owning the car I noticed more and more dings and even a few rust dots developing on the drivers side rocker panel. They also bragged that they installed new brakes and tires, which is great. But the tires they put on are summer tread (I live in Pa) and they are low quality tires. The brakes are extremely loud and while the stopping power is good they will have to be closely checked during the inspection. I’m expecting to have to put on new rotors. Who puts new brakes on bad rotors? Also their detailing of the car was poor at best. The floor was swept but the cup holders were disgusting as were all steering column levers and center console. The car only came with one key so that will cost me I can only imagine how much and when I lifted the trunk mat to check the spare tire I immediately noticed that the jack and tire iron are missing. Not good for a 4 year old car with only 26k miles..Version: 3.0

WARNING: DO NOT USE THIS SERVICE!Anyone who see this, I hope that I save you the headaches I’ve had to go through and still are going through… Bought mid August 2021. It’s the end of October and I still have NOTHING to show it’s mine; no registration, no tag, not even a bill of sale! They said it would all come in the mail, but 61 days later and counting, I still have nothing. We aren’t able to drive the car due to expired tags, and today, they just told me they’re doing a “paperwork packet rebuild” that will take 60 to 90 more days before I get a tag and registration to drive the vehicle. But they still draft their payment from my bank account and were extremely quick to draft the down payment! Also, their “150 point inspection” that you can be “100% confident in” is a flat out lie. How does their thorough 150 point inspection miss 4 bad CV joints, broken axils, bushings, speakers, and the list goes on! But hey! “No worries because you’re completely covered” except; you’re not. I was left with a $200 bill. When I called, they said “our bad” and that I was getting reimbursed. That’s the fourth item I’ve been told I would be reimbursed on and I’ve yet to receive ONE reimbursement… but they still take their payment every month..Version: 4.8

Great app, terrible fulfillmentPROS: The app is slick and user-friendly and an all around excellent experience to be able to search, review and purchase a vehicle all from your fingertips. CONS: The actual, ya know, point of buying a car is to get the fricking car. Originally purchased in June and scheduled delivery for Sat July 2nd. They texted me a few days prior saying there was a “transportation delay” and rescheduled me for July 6th. I had to reschedule for Sat Jul 9th because both me and my wife are on the title of the trade-in, so she has to be present at delivery (we both work). ONE HOUR prior to new scheduled delivery on the 9th they called me saying that during inspection they discovered the car’s tint is too dark and it’s illegal so they have to replace it. Have to reschedule again. Try to give me a Tuesday afternoon. I tell them about wife situation and ask if she can get a notarized document or something so she doesn’t have to be there. Nope, she has to be present. OK I guess I’ll take the next Saturday. Nope, unavailable. Now I’m scheduled for Wednesday July 20th in the evening. Meanwhile, the terms of my financing have changed since the original purchase. Now the interest rate is a full point higher. All because of their incompetence and delays. I wish I had been a little less picky on the vehicle and just gone to CarMax..Version: 4.25

MeI’m very disappointed because I preordered a vehicle with $100 deposit and waited over 2 weeks for it to become available and as I had completed the purchase procedure and had a delivery date for that Friday and waited on the verification to be completed. I received a call the next day requesting copies of paystubs, etc Their system had technical difficulties when I went to upload documents so I called them and found out the vehicle was no longer held in my account and another customer had it on hold... the agent got it back into my account and the next day it happened again. I had signed all contracts and down payment had been verified and I got insurance on it as I expected the vehicle the next day. I was told another customer was already purchasing it and they couldn’t remove it and put it back on my account but if the purchase didn’t go through I could then purchase it. There was not another vehicle like that with the low down payment available and because of a computer glitch I was just screwed.... I asked if I chose another vehicle if they could arrange the down payment price to be close to the one I had preordered and tried to purchase as a courtesy for the system glitch and was told NO! So after 3 weeks waiting on a vehicle I was now starting the entire process over to find a vehicle with absolutely no special treatment for the problems I had with them or any compensation..Version: 4.0.6

This company is trashI purchased my car from carvana back in the middle of November last year 2020. After 3 months of waiting I still had not gotten my registration done by carvana and still had not even had my name put on the title by them. My car was totaled at the end of February 2021 and it took them 2 1/2 months to send me the registration and put my name on title meaning I was paying on a car that was TOTALED for 2 months and don’t forget interest too, this also got in the way of me getting my check for my car from my insurance company. After contacting the state they legally have 60 days to put your name on the title, oh did I mention they don’t even have a license to sell in Colorado which is where I live. Oh and don’t get me started on their finance company bridgecrest is just as bad. Absolutely no one has any idea what They’re talking about and you will get different answers every time you call. It got so bad we had to contact the founder of the company and get bbb and our local news station involved, we finally got them to give the copy of a title to my insurance company and what a surprise there total and my total on what I owe on the car is $400 higher. I have just given up fighting this company. Do yourself a favor and save your sanity DO NOT buy a car from this company.Version: 4.0.11

Poor to no service!!!!!!!Found and made all arrangements to purchase 2017 Dodge Charger and the day of delivery was notified that there was engine trouble and electrical issues with the navigation. Wa informed it would take two weeks to repair. Decided to not buy car with issues after a 150 point inspection. Found a 2017 Buick and went through all the arrangements again filling out forms. Signing all the purchase papers and adding car to my insurance policy and canceling the above stated Charger. Received a message that the Buick I had purchased and was to be delivered tomorrow will not be delivered and I would be informed when a new date could be arranged. They claimed that there was a transport issue the same thing I was informed was the issue with the Charger but I talk to the person handling the delivery on the phone that morning and was told it was engine problems and electrical issues with the Navigation. I purposely picked a vehicle that was in their FREE DELIVERY area to avoid any delivery issues. At this point I have my doubts that they have any cars at all. I have never had last minute issues like this from any car purchase before. It always amazes me how people who continue to fail at something they proclaim to be experienced at still don’t realize that we are sorry fixes nothing..Version: 4.23

5 stars to 1 starI literally don’t write reviews, but what I experienced from the last two days is unbelievable. I realized the newest app update in the worst way. So I was unaware of how to reschedule my payment via calendar, because the old app update has it where I could update the payment via calendar in plain site. The newest update was not the case. I clicked schedule payment and did not realize the calendar was positioned in the corner of the screen beside the hard coded today’s date. So since I did not realize this I click schedule payment for that hardcoded date above the button, I was thinking that the next screen would take me to the calendar. Sadly it confirmed my payment for the hardcoded today’s date. When I realized it was processing, I could not stop the payment process. That is another thing, this app needs a way to cancel payments for situations like this. My sole issue is the small calendar to edit the payment. Called the representative and they could not stop the payment. Called my bank to try to stop the payment. And it was successful. I paid the payment via phone today since this company is blocked from payment process at my bank. Now I have to call my bank back sometime next week to remove this company off the list of cancellation for my next payment arrangement in June. I will be using the website for now on. I never had a issue with this app until now. Sorry for the long post..Version: 3.0.1

Terrible!!!! Stay away!!Had the worst experience with Carvana. I found a car and purchased, arranged financing pretty easily. I selected the pickup date and boom, thought i was all set. Wrong. 2 days before my pickup date, they sent me a text saying the delivery would be delayed ONE WEEK. Keep in mind I had already updated my insurance, cancelled my next car payment, and I had even schedule a service appt for the new car. Another week goes by and they hit me with another week delay. Again I have to rearrange my life to accommodate. So finally the day arrives when I can pick up my new ride. I head down to the “vending machine” and not more than 2 minutes after I arrive the attendant informs me of an odor in my new car. So I walk open the door and am hit with the overwhelming stench of cigarette smoke. It smelled like an ashtray. I was stunned. Surely Carvana doesn’t buy cars like this!! Further, even if they did, surely they would I disclose that this car had previously been owned by a smoker. But nope. They tried to hide the smell and pull a fast one on me. At this point I am furious. I had wasted more time and money for a big fat nothing burger. I hopped in my old car and called them immediately. When I finally spoke to someone, they only offered to credit a future purchase $250. What a joke. I will never use Carvana and will continue to tell my friends and family to avoid at all costs..Version: 4.0.2

Delivery of carAt first I had a great experience with customer service very friendly people. All was arranged and car was suppose to be delivered on the scheduled date. Then it was pushed back to a different date. Then again pushed back to another date. I called both times telling them the importance of getting the car by a specific date. Then I received another call and the delivery was pushed back 2 weeks. I communicated with a customer service person whom informed me that since my delivery was pushed back that accommodates would be made. And that they would call me back. I waited and waited without a call back. Never received any communication from anyone after that. I had to cancel the order since we needed the car by a specific date (which I was guaranteed it would be there by). Very disappointing experience to say the least. To make betters worse I had to cancel my auto insurance for the existing car and insurance the new car before it arrived. Then since the transaction did not take place I had to call my auto insurance company and explain for over an hour what happened to restore my current car back to my policy..Version: 4.2.1

DO NOT BUY A CAR.I never in my life have written a review but this is an absolute must. This has been the worst experience in my entire life. I received my vehicle back in feb. 2019 AND I STILL don’t have my plates. They will not give me a rental (which they can do). My neighbor also is having the same exact issue but she has a rental vehicle. They also told me I would have them by the end of this week and still don’t have them at all, I called them again today and they told me I would have them by next week when I was already told it would come by the end of this week. Customer service is TERRIBLE. Honestly I wouldn’t not recommend this not even to my worst enemy. I’m paying for a car and insurance that I can’t even drive. They keep telling me it’s now my fault that the plates are coming next week when they have already received all the paper work they needed. There is hold on their end and they are blaming me for their hold up. I’m letting you know now this is not the place to purchase a vehicle. Do it In person with a dealership, you can even get cheaper vehicles with a longer warranty on them and get the pre certified with no issues and plates the same day, if not the same day it will be that week. Carvana is a complete scam and they told me I WASN'T ALLOWED to give the vehicle back. This is the most stressful/annoying/terrible/horrible/crazy experience of my entire life..Version: 3.2

Overall, a great way to buy a car3 stars because Carvana could be better, so I’m hoping my feedback helps. Good points: easy way to look at year, model, miles, features etc. In many cases, free delivery to your door. 150 point inspection I instills confidence that you’re buying a good car. Fair pricing. Mostly low mileage cars. Good job. Room for improvement: One car said exterior black when the car was white in the visual. Another car looked white when it was gray. So Carvana is either getting their description wrong or they are colorizing cars which goes gain at their claim that you are looking at the actual car. Hidden pricing. I got all the way to the buying point on a car then realized there was a $1500 shipping cost that only shows up after I started the purchasing process. That should show up in the initial cost. I actually took receipt of a car I wanted to buy but the body had traces of a former decal graphic that affected 3/4 of the car. Faint lines, but still noticeable. So Carvana is mostly a good way to buy a car and they just need to clean up a few practices..Version: 4.27.1

Worst experience everCar buying application was quick and easy went in a breeze. Now the delivery was a completely different story. Was scheduled to have a vehicle on Feb. 2nd at 2PM date was set up in January. On that date at 1:45PM I get a call that the vehicle was damaged and that it wouldn’t be available. That was understandable and I picked another car similar car for delivery on Feb 4th. On the 3rd it was delayed until the 7th on the 6th it was delayed until the 8th on the 7th it was delayed u til the 10th and again on the 9th which is today it was delayed til the 12th. All I’m being offered is a sorry. I’m told I can’t pick the vehicle up and that each time that it would be the last delay. You sacrifice a lot by shopping with Carvana like the ability to pay off your car early to avoid some interest. If you need a car in a reasonable amount of time I would stay away. They showed multiple times that they don’t care about you as a customer. UPDATE Carvana has replied to my review and stated they hope I’m enjoying my new ride… I’m not it was delayed again so I don’t have it. Will be calling to cancel purchase and notifying my referrals to do the same if they have the same issues. CARVANA is a JOKE.Version: 4.15

Bait and switch? Still not sure.I was excited to find a pretty great car on Carvana recognizing that it was really difficult to find any cars at dealerships…. So go through the transaction with tons of time pressure because the vehicle is only reserved for a short window while you complete the transaction and all the paperwork…. The car delivery is scheduled and low and behold the day before they contact me and reschedule- the car needs a new windshield due to damage during transit. Wow, ok. At this point I was impressed. It was rescheduled for a week later which seemed like a long time but ok. I redid all the paperwork, I cancel the car insurance and waited. Two days before the transaction I started getting automated messages that implied that I was not trading in my current car so I call in where the wait time was predicted to be over an hour. They call me back and and let me know that everything seems in order… I should ignore the automated emails…. One day before the transaction and the delivery is canceled again. I don’t get a phone call or an email to explain just a text. When I respond to the text and ask for some kind of communication I’m told the can only help me through texts. Hours pass between responses. They have now rescheduled the delivery for some time next week so I get to do the paperwork again. Redo the insurance again and arrange to work from home again. In no way has this been car buying made easy..Version: 4.2.1

Do Not Buy With CarvanaI had the worst experience with Carvana. My car had transmission issues two weeks after purchase to the point where it wasn’t drivable anymore. I got in touch with Carvana, and they made a claim with silverock. I had to take the car to the dealer, and was promised a rental for 10 days while it was being repaired. At the dealer, they said the tcm was the issue and there was a back order of 30 people ahead of me. There was no way my car was going to be repaired soon, and Carvana told me I’d have to pay the rental for it. I tried to get in touch with managers to return my car and buy another one, but they wouldn’t answer my claims. The employees I’d speak with told me I couldn’t return it because it was something that can eventually be repaired. I had the car for about three weeks and only got to drive it for one. The transmission issue with the car was never my fault, they shouldn’t sell cars without having full inspections on them. The guy at the dealership even told them it was unsafe for me to drive it and they should just return it. Still to this day I haven’t heard back on what’s going to happen, but I took the car off my insurance and not making a single payment on it. Thanks a lot Carvana..Version: 4.1.5

I like the concept, but there’s still a long way to goI saw the commercials just like everyone else and really despise car dealerships, so I figured why not, but I had no idea what I was about to experience. On the plus side, it’s easy to navigate the app and view vehicle details and pricing. However, that’s where the fun ended for me. Like a lot of people out there, I have less than perfect credit. Even so, the 24% interest rate they offered me was outrageous. I’ve NEVER been to a car dealership that offered me anything over 15%, even when my credit was below 600. On top of that, they wanted a $3,300 down payment and then said that I didn’t qualify for their 90 day no pay program. If you’re going to advertise something stand by it and don’t try to back out, especially for customers who more than likely could use a break with everything going on nowadays. If all of that wasn’t enough, I selected the trade-in option and was disgusted when they tried to offer me $150 credit for a 2010 Toyota Corolla which has been independently appraised at over $2,000! My favorite part was when they told me it was worth $1,200 but subtracted over a THOUSAND dollars because they said “the market is saturated”. I live in Atlanta...Sorry Carvana, I like the concept but you still have quite a few improvements to make before you get my business..Version: 3.6.9

Worse than the dealerUnfortunately I have to say my experience with Caravana at best has been bad. I have had to schedule delivery of the vehicle three times, because of errors by Carvana. I then found out that the car wouldn’t pass inspection and they were driving it around to solve the problem. Each time I have had to reschedule delivery it was around what worked in their schedule and if it didn’t work in mine they just kept moving the date out. I went to Caravana from a recommendation of a friend. I also did it, because working with a dealer is usually a draining nightmare. But I will have to say this has been worse than any dealer I have worked with... I have many hours of texts and phone calls trying to get the car purchased/delivered and I still don’t have the car... received a text today they can’t see into the future, but if the car is going to be delayed they will let me know... really? So after missing two delivers and hours of conversations trying to get it resolved, your telling you may miss another delivery. I have been in the customer service business for 25 years. Definitely not the customer service I would extend to my customers and especially a new customer that you hope would become repeat business..Version: 4.1.3

Not like a vending machineI received the notice that I was pre-approved but when I attempted to purchase a vehicle, there were so many hoops to jump through. The app doesn’t work well and I don’t know who Sebastian is but he should get fired. I’m thinking it’s a bot. I thought it would be easier to purchase this way versus going to a dealership but it has been equally as bad. At least at a dealership, you have a person reviewing your application and making judgment calls based on a human logic. I work as an independent contractor. I have more than one contract. My method of payment is as unconventional as the 2020 pandemic. I have relied on all of these methods to make it through this year. Unfortunately now I need a vehicle. I can’t get one because my methods of payment (debit deposits to non-banks) don’t meet some strange underwriting standard. That’s what repossessions are for. I’m just so annoyed by all of this. I need a car but the experience trying to purchase through Carvana has made me less than excited. Plus there is a disconnect between the app and the website. I keep getting text messages and emails but they don’t link up with the app. I’m actually annoyed by all of it. I just wish it worked and I could have successfully given Carvana 5 stars but right now I’m so disappointed and irritated that I wish I could give it negative stars..Version: 3.9.4

The 150 point inspection is a lie.I had to swap out my car 3 times. The first car needed tires and brakes which I had to have fixed on my 7 day test drive. On day 7 there was a bad vibration and smoke coming from the rear wheel. I decided to return the car and get another similar vehicle but slightly downgraded from the first car. I took the 2nd car for a test drive on the freeway and the tires were way out of balance. I took the car to my local tire company that I have a long time relationship with and they balanced all 4 tires at no cost to me. They said one of the tires was out of balance by 4 ounces and the other tires were off by 1-2 ounces. These were new off brand tires that I assume Carvana put on but without balancing the tires. While driving back from the tire company, I decided I didn't really like the way it drove. I then decided to go back to my original model of car, which was fun to drive when running smoothly. I figured they wouldn't give me another car that needs service immediately. On the 3rd delivery there's no 7 day test drive, just the warranty. Well this car reeked of old weed and needed 2 tires. The tires were covered under warranty and i'm waiting on my reimbursement to have the car detailed for the smell, which is still slightly present, but is dissipating. Outside of this, I like the car but they shouldn't put their customers through the hassle right after delivery..Version: 4.23

Not What Is Advertised.This is my first time writing a review, but with that, Carvana has excellent customer service. But, what they advertise online is not what they are selling you. I bought a 2017 Chevrolet Cruze LT Sedan 4D. Under the details about my car (with the VIN included) they had advertised that this car comes with keyless start, heated seats, etc. Also, in the photos, you can see where the buttons for the heated seats are. Well, when I had my car delivered to me, this car did not have that. When I was talking to the delivery guy and going over paperwork, I brought this up to him and he pulled up the advertisement and all of a sudden these features were not on the page. He suggested that I had gotten confused with another car I was looking to purchase. But I had priced this car with these features on KBB to make sure I was getting a good deal. Well, fast forward some months later, I finally found the original advertisement for my car and low & behold it has these features advertised with it. Now I am up-side-down on a vehicle with a baby on the way. Saving your stress at the time of the purchase is really just delaying it later down the line when you’re owing more on a vehicle than it’s worth that you purchased with them. Also I have contacted Carvana & they won’t do anything about this. The people on the phone were very nice and everything, but Carvana as a whole is not what they make it out to be. If you do purchase with them, be very wary..Version: 3.5.1

Lack of follow-throughThe actual car buying process was good although I received different information from different representatives regarding documents that needed to be submitted prior to the purchase. However, after reporting problems with the AC on Day 2 after the purchase, it took two days for me to be contacted. (I would’ve have probably noticed it on Day 1 if I was offered the test drive that is mentioned on the site). Instead of Carvana answering my questions about returning the vehicle, I was referred to their warranty provider who is not open on weekends. It has now been ten days since the purchase and after going to two different preferred service providers, the problem still isn’t fixed. I have not received the calls from Silverrock that the preferred providers told me I would receive. Now, I have to go to the BMW dealership who is not a preferred provider and have to change my travel plans. I have never encountered problems like this so soon after purchasing a vehicle and compared to purchasing experiences with CarMax, Carvana has mastered the buying experience but has dropped the ball on ensuring that any problems with their products are solved quickly..Version: 4.1.4

Why such a small time periodBecause this company hasn’t yet figured out that time did exist before 1992.Version: 4.17

Just need a carSo I was really excited to get a car from Carvana after reading multiple reviews. I was approved right away and I found a car that was perfect. I am a nurse needing a vehicle. I was told everything was as set I did all of the verification steps. Ola couple of days before my pick up I was told that they needed to reschedule. P I was ok but then it happened again. Still no car. The first vehicle was sold out even though I had a pending purchase secured. The second vehicle k keeps getting pushed back. I was able to catch an error that noted the car was black but the car was white on the contracts which ended up delaying the purchase even more. All the while everyone just keeps saying this is what it is now or you can pick another vehicle. So I have signed my contracts multiple times. I have spoken to multiple reps to keep saying 24 to 48 hours I have even offered to go pick up the vehicle. As a nurse I can’t spend my entire day trying to talk to people about purchasing a car and trying to fix errors that have been created by staff who have not been trained adequately. I have been told multiple times that this is a unique situation and that this doesn’t happen typically but yet you still I have no car almost a month later..Version: 4.26

Seems very disorganizedSo I must say the “idea” of purchasing my next car online with the app and having it delivered seems to be the new normal and I like the not having to deal with the car salesmen. But I’ve been trying to 2weeks in counting to make sense of the lack of communication they seem to have quite a bit of cliches with the verification process I’ve uploaded on several times all the requested information and everything is still pending I feel very much like I’m left in limbo with the lack of customer service and trying to figure out if I’m going to have this car next week or is something going on that I should be better aware of it’s not the smoothest process they have in place and it honestly seems very disorganized and makes me curious if the information I uploaded to the “secure site” is actually truly safe and out in the cyberspace by the wrong person. I would probably recommend this process if it was more organized, better customer service and easier navigation of the buying and purchasing within the app I’m not one to usually give negative feedback but it’s not a smooth easy process and I’m not sure most people would be ok with the lack of information and actual customer service. I hope they can get better processes and smoother overall buying and customer service people that can help if u do have come hiccuping along the way. Thank you!.Version: 3.7.4

Really convenient but....I really rely on this app a lot to make sure I’m able to process my payment on time and of course there’s also the great option for auto pay. All your payment information is stored and visible to you whenever you wish to access it. I also like that anything pertaining to your vehicle as far as recalls go is shown immediately. The only thing I don’t like, which is a vital component for the whole app’s success, is the tendency for the app’s lag when submitting a payment- this has happened maybe a couple of times I’ve used it—but it can be quite problematic. If you submit your payment and the app doesn’t register the submission, you’re left guessing whether your payment processed. So you might submit it a few more times to make sure the payment went through, before you know it, you’ll look at the payment history and it shows you’ve submitted the payment 5 times. The app should show, immediately, when a payment is processed and prompt you when you’re likely to make another payment back to back. This would eliminate you from calling your bank or lending institution to halt excess payments you’ve made because of a lag in the app..Version: 2.11.1

Disappointed and frustrated.So incredibly frustrated with how things have played out. At the beginning of this whole experience it seemed to be my best option for convenience. My car was supposed to arrive last Tuesday but then last minute a was told that the truck it was on broke down, and because of the holiday, my car was set to arrive on Saturday, well come to find out on Thursday night, that there was another delay on my vehicle that now has the car being delivered on Monday morning. I’ve been left without transportation for 6 days longer than I had expecting. Leaving me to pay $40 everyday for a ride share to and from work, because I didn’t get a break over the holiday. And since there weren’t any available vehicles since there isn’t a “lot”, I wasn’t given any option for temporary transportation. So incredibly frustrating and just really disappointing. For a company that stands on a mission of a “better way to buy a car” really dropped the ball. Buying a car is stressful enough, and adding all of these extra complications, especially around the holiday is just an extra sour cherry on top of it all. It’s really hard to even be excited about test driving the car when it gets here. But at the very least, I will say that every customer service representative i came in contact with was professional and as “helpful” as they could be considering the situation..Version: 3.9.7

Worst experience of my lifeI have never left a bad review before, it’s something I usually keep to myself but I cannot keep this experience to myself. The first few days of buying a car from Carvana were great until it came time for the delivery. I was notified at 5:00pm the day before the car was to be delivered,10:00am the following day, there was a “delay in transportation” and I needed to contact Carvana to reschedule immediately, so I did. The customer service told me the delivery truck broke down and it would be 5 days before I would get my car. 5 days!! That is ridiculous. I had to cancel the first few days of my vacation leaving me out several hundred dollars. They also informed me they could not refund the $200 transportation fee. I did not mind paying the fee but if the delivery is delayed 5 days, it is not right to make the customer pay it. Not only did this mess up my schedule, but my co-signer as well. The original scheduled time and date was the only time that would work for the both of us. Carvana did nothing to rectify the situation. I presented them with several solutions, one of which involved me going to get the car. None of these solutions worked for Carvana and they would not let me speak to a supervisor. This entire experience was one of the worst in my life. I do not suggest using this company..Version: 3.1.1

Good theory poor execution…Their selection is nice and theory behind their business plan sounds great. Issue is they promise a car in as little as one or two days. You work through everything to purchase the car and then after buying it and setting a shipping date, they postpone the delivery for weeks. Then the day of delivery they postpone it again. Doing research they postpone an average of three times for up to a month to get your automobile. Many are able to cancel their order but there are many more that have to put $500+ deposit that they would not get back for cancellation of a car that is weeks or months late. They postpone your order with a simple text. No phone call or anything. They give you a random date or time weeks out and if you have to reschedule their random selected date it could be another 5 or so days. I asked them if I could meet them at a vending machine hrs away to speed it up and they said “No this car is not going through any customer facing hubs”. I could go on with their issues but you get my point. Don’t be in a rush as it may be months and if you need a car right away good luck….Version: 4.25

Getting tags/Getting Registration for a New CarThe whole process of physically getting a car is very smooth, however being able to get new tags and or registration has been an absolute nightmare. Every time I’ve asked at what point in the process I’m at they haven’t been able to give me sufficient information on where my tags are at. I haven’t gotten my tags yet and it’s been about a month since they’ve claimed to submit my tags. It’s been about 2 weeks since my temporary tags have expired and I haven’t been able to drive my car since then. There’s been no updates on the dash or anything of that nature. The only way I’ve been able to get any information is through constantly calling and texting there support line only to get the same answer over and over again. You can’t even get in contact with their 3rd parties because it’s their policy not to give out that information. So it feels like nobody knows where my tags are. I don’t know who to ask and or who to talk to because nobody has any information. I’ve also asked where my tags are at to my state DMV and they haven’t even received them. It’s just frustrating because now I’m locked into making payments on a car I can’t even drive at the moment and it feels like I’m getting the run around..Version: 4.25

40K Mile Vehicle Serviced 3 Times Since DeliveryThe purchasing process was seamless but I’ve been given a faulty vehicle. I purchased this vehicle in February at around 37,000 miles. It is a 2017 vehicle, so it is only 3 years old. I had to get it serviced within 3 days of getting it (I should have gone with my gut and returned it within the week trial) only 3,000 miles later I had to get it serviced again because the vehicle kept turning off WHILE I was driving it. We’re talking about a vehicle with a little over 40K on it.. If it were closer to 75K or 100K it would make more sense for problems to occur but it has essentially been broken since I’ve gotten it. A week later I had to get it serviced AGAIN. That’s 3 times in under 3K miles.. Luckily there is still a manufacturer’s warranty on it but I wish they would have done a more thorough check of the vehicle before it was delivered or not listed a vehicle that is clearly broken? With the rate it’s deteriorating, I might have to sell a kidney after the warranty is over. It has caused me nothing but problems and I cannot trade it in for a new one. Now I am stuck with a faulty vehicle and I just want others to be cautious. You’re better off purchasing a vehicle the old fashioned way..Version: 3.8.1

NEVER DO BUSINESS WITH CARVANAI would like to start by saying I would never recommend Carvana to anyone! I’ve had nothing but the worse experience with them. They’re conniving, completely dishonest, and lack professionalism. From the very beginning, I should have known Carvana was nothing but excuses and failed promises. I was given a car with many issues! Was told that I would be able to do a “delayed swap” from numerous agents. I had been undergoing this procedure for well over a month and then told that the agent taking care of my account was fired and that I should have never been offered the “delayed swap” (although more than one agent had informed me that I was eligible). This information was relayed to me after days of missing work to acquire documentation from a mechanic that Carvana required for the “delayed swap”. This was also after weeks of being told that I should receive my new vehicle in a few days and that everything would be taken care of. After telling me they would not be moving forward with my swap, they informed me that a supervisor would be contacting me within 48 hours. It’s been 2 weeks and I haven’t heard back from anyone. Will never do business with Carvana or recommend them to anyone! Nothing but failure and disappointment!!.Version: 4.23

Brilliant business idea, horrible executionI found a vehicle that I wanted and started the process of purchasing the vehicle. I was nearly complete when I realized that there were differences between the details on the website and details on the Carfax report. I paused the purchasing process and called the customer support number because the differences were material (V8 versus V6 engine and 4-wheel drive versus 2-wheel drive). The person I spoke with confirmed that there were differences between the website and the Carfax report and told me that I the Carfax report should be correct. Thankfully I had paused the purchase in time to cancel before moving forward. After hanging up I realized that there is information on the Carvana website that is not listed on the Carfax report. I called customer support a second time to see if there is any way to validate information listed on the Carvana website that is not listed on the Carfax report and the answer was no. The representative did stress that if the vehicle was wrong that I would not have to accept it and would not be charged. My understanding from the website is that I would still have to pay for the delivery fee, but the representative said that no that was not the case. I am still unsure which is correct. My issue with Carvana is that I have found it difficult to get accurate information that can be trusted. For a purchase of this magnitude, that is unacceptable..Version: 4.1.3

App is good, car was notI was super happy with the buying process (and eventually, the return process) was super painless and strait forward. All in all, it took maybe 15 minutes of my time to be fully purchased and awaiting delivery, that’s how it should be. That’s where the positivity ends. I found what I thought was, a nice 2015 Lexus IS250 F Sport. The reported damage to the car was was very minimal, a scratch on the fender, a scratch on the hood, some wear on the steering wheel, and that was about it. I thought wow this will be a fantastic car, as I was looking for a really nice and well taken care of example, and was willing to pay for it. When the car arrived, 3 out of the 4 wheels had significant curb damage, there were numerous noticeable dents in the car, and the passenger side skirt was partially ripped off. When driving, it was evident the car needed an alignment badly. I was so disappointed in the car that I returned it abs bought a much nicer example at a local dealership. Although the buying process at the dealership was much more lengthy and a pain, the actual car was in much better condition, it was certified by Lexus, and it ended up being 1,500 dollars less. I will not be using Carvana for any purchases in the future….Version: 4.1.7

Waste of time and moneyMy husband and I both thought Carvana was the way to go when we both needed to replace our vehicles (and we were ready to spend good money if it meant having the convenience of a car delivered within a few days). Unfortunately, both of our dates for delivery kept being pushed further out with no explanation. My husband tried to find a solution because we both were in a dire place (I went without a car and he had to drive one that barely worked), but Carvana wasn’t willing to let him pick one of them up instead (he was willing to pay the extra price). The person he was talking to wouldn’t let him speak with a manager either. My husband ended up calling the main Carvana customer service and spoke to a super nice guy (Tyler H. - thank you!) who looked up both of our accounts and saw what the hold up was (our insurance policies weren’t the correct 90-day policies) and that in both of our cases Carvana failed to notify us the cause of the delays. He was so kind and sympathetic to our situations and helped us cancel our vehicles without hesitation. Unfortunately, we will not be recommending Carvana. Instead, my husband took time off of work and we went to a local dealership and found a much better price on a brand new (instead of used) one, but we’re still looking for a second car. We wasted so much time and it caused more hardship than we expected..Version: 4.26

Trust me when I say “DON’T”. Heed this warning!!It all started with a promise of a seamless transition and a great price for the car we wanted. Turned out to be everything but. We financed a 2020 VW Atlas Cross with our own bank and had everything ready and submitted literally in a day. From issues getting our payment to them (they refused to get a direct wire from our bank), to multiple delays (three delays that added an additional three weeks), to getting the car with very low brakes and moisture in the front light (both which their warranty refused to cover), and finally not receiving our license tag (it’s been almost four months and we’re still waiting). Support in the app is non existent, and good luck trying to get a solution via phone (if you’re lucky enough to get some one on the line who can offer any type of resolution). They continue to use the pandemic as an excuse for everything no matter how minor. You’re better off saving yourself the massive headache and spending the additional dollar at your local dealership. At least then you have someone you can go directly to if there’s an issue. I’ve wasted so much time try to get them on the line that it’s not even funny. Next step is to reach out to our state attorney general to see if anything can be done. License tag here are supposed to be delivered in 30 days. If you don’t believe this review, google Carvana to see some of the horror stories. They tend to consistent..Version: 4.25

Horrible & DishonestWe were excited to find the exact vehicle we were looking for. 2018 white Expedition Max XLT with tan interior and panoramic sunroof. My husband took off work so we could drive 86 miles to pick it up. We spent a lot of time the days previous getting a cashiers check from our bank, adding the vehicle to our insurance, 2 notorizations, all forms filled and submitted etc. NO ISSUES were shown in pictures except minor scratches. Vehicle looked perfect in the multiple pictures sent. They shipped this expedition across the country from SC to NV. We arrived excited to drive our perfect new vehicle home, with a $50k+ check in our hand! We immediately noticed dripping brown stains down the outside of both sides of the vehicle. Upon looking inside, we saw dirty obviously water stained headliner. We quickly realized that the large sunroof had been steadily leaking so much that there were brown stains down both sides of the white exterior! Upon opening the rear hatch door, it looked like it had been used as a mobile zoo!!! Chewed up leather seats, rear door had scratches all over the interior. White pet hair in carpeting. We never even started it up. We rejected the vehicle. None of these issues was disclosed and/or photographed in the description. So very unprofessional and disappointing to waste our time and gas/work money for this. Never again, Carvana..Version: 4.26

Terrible ExperienceThe only reason I gave a two star was the convenience factor of ordering a vehicle online. Other than that it was a terrible experience. First I placed and order for a car which was supposed to be delivered almost a week later but then I received a text message saying my delivery was delayed with no reason other than logistic issue. Then on the day of my delivery, two hours before scheduled time, I get a call from the delivery driver saying he cannot in good consciousness deliver the vehicle to me because the trunk was full of mold. MOLD!!! The customer service rep said it was bad enough where they might end up scrapping the title/car. They brag about the 150 point inspection but my car made it all the way to the delivery hub and no one noticed a trunk full of mold? I declined the sale, cancelled my order, and went to Carmax, where I walked out same day with the vehicle of my choice. If Carvana is missing a trunk full of mold then what else did their "150 point inspection" miss? Very disappointed I didn't complete one vehicle purchase with them and this is my experience and first impression. Save yourself the headache and go local or to a Carmax..Version: 4.20

Multiple delays - so stressfulWe have bought three cars from carvana now, first experience a few years ago was fine, although there was dog hair all over the back seat and we were given some reimbursement for detailing we never used because it was more complicated to use it than to just pay for it ourself. I pre ordered a car two months ago and purchased it a couple weeks later when it was “available” and it’s been delayed 3 times with no real reasoning other than “unexpected delays” after firing 2,500 people. We bought another car (because we needed a vehicle) that was delivered sooner even though we picked it up after a delay and it was still not detailed upon arrival and it wasn’t charged and we were told to just charge it down the road that it was quick and free but drove around in an area we didn’t know to find a charger we never used and it was so stressful just to try and get home with it, now our other car has been delayed again because it needed to be detailed and now again with no charge. There has been some financial reimbursement for the 6 week delay of delivery, but no where near enough to cover a rental car needed to continue working and having to reschedule so many things because of all the supposed delivery dates… It’s been a pretty terrible experience with these two cars….Version: 4.22
