What Are the Reviews Like for CarMax San Antonio?

Customers generally report having a good experience at the San Antonio CarMax retailer. The car buying experience depends largely on who the car salesman is. Those who are fortunate enough to work with a good sales associate will praise them and the customer service they received.

Live Oak:

Several customers describe having an excellent buying experience, but a common complaint for this location was that their experience with the service department was frustrating. After purchasing vehicles from CarMax, many reported having to come back not long after to deal with repairs. These buyers fault CarMax since they claim to conduct a 125+ point inspection on all vehicles. Other buyers did not have a good experience when it came to their scheduled appointments being honored. They described showing up to the location and having to wait over an hour to be helped even with an appointment.
