Carvana has become a popular choice with drivers who want to streamline their car shopping experience. Advertised as a no-haggle and no-hassle buying experience, Carvana has beckoned in many drivers – but does it live up to its promises? Here are the pros and cons of Carvana:


  • Online: As a 100% virtual retailer, all shopping and sale are done online. Arrange pickup at a Carvana Vending Machine or pay a fee for delivery.
  • Accessibility: Because Carvana is online, you can shop at all hours of the day.
  • Selection: Carvana offers a tremendous selection of used vehicles shipped from all over the country.


  • Blind Buys: Because you are doing all transactions online, you can’t test out your car before you buy. This has led to customers receiving cars with scratched exteriors, dirty cabins, and other unexpected issues at Carvana NJ.
  • Price: A “no-haggle” policy also means no negotiations, so you might not get the best deal available. There are no loyalty incentives or car specials to boost your dollar at Honda Carvana.
  • Accountability: Carvana has made news lately after customer complaints regarding missing paperwork. In fact, it has been banned in numerous states for misleading consumers.
