Review Breakdown

Good sale experience with a few major flaws

The process of finding a car and applying for financing was easy. Once I had the car, it was extremely difficult to get anyone to help me with the details needed to finalize my registration. I bought my first Carvana car last November, and over four months later, I still don't have the permanent registration for it. Trying to get a customer service person is next to impossible, and when I have gotten in touch with one, they haven't been able to clearly explain why this process is taking so long.
I just got another car through Carvana last week, and hopefully this time it will go more smoothly. My advice to the company would be to make it easier for customers to access help other than the FAQ and "Sebastian" chat feature, hopefully by hiring more customer service staff. Even having a dedicated contact would have been great for this process, like being able to email one person for my post-sale details rather than waiting on hold for hours or waiting for a text from someone who's not familiar with my case.
Overall, the pros of Carvana are:
-the ability to buy a car with the specific options/specs you're looking for regardless of where it is, rather than relying on whatever cars your local dealer has in stock
-easy financing application
-decent pricing
-easily accessible details about each car for sale
The cons include:
-Not enough customer service staff
-Registration process is way more complicated than with an in-person/in-state dealer
-Third-party partners dealing with registration or other details means that Carvana staff cannot be very helpful to customers experiencing a problem because they might not have access to necessary information

Great experience

The whole experience is so easy, and the best part is you never have to leave the comfort of your home. The staff are so kind and very helpful. I am very happy and won't shop anywhere else.

Impressed

The entire process was much easier than I thought it would be. The most difficult part was selecting a car with di many options to choose from. I picked my car up from one of the Carvana locations and I highly recommend that for anyone who is buying a car for the first time or buying a car for someone else as it is quite an experience. Carvana does offer financing but the interest rates in my opinion are not competitive.
