KBB - $18,222
Vroom - $22,145
Carvana - couldn’t figure out a value to offer

I did get an estimate from Carvana about 6 months ago for $17,000.

I have had the car for 11 months. Used to be my commuter car. Don’t commute anymore. So off to Vroom.

Sold my '17 Volt with 62k miles to Carvana last week, had it picked up on Friday. Carvana offered $12k, Vroom offered $9.5k.

Carvana was quick and painless, maybe a total of 30 mins screentime from start to finish (if even).

I checked the value of my 2013 Pilot yesterday for kicks, which I was certain I was massively upside down in, and Carvana offered me just a touch over $15K, which was about $700 more than I owe. To say I was pleasantly surprised would be an understatement.

I sold my 2012 Wrangler with 77k miles to Carvana last week. Appraised it Monday for $15k, they came and picked it up Thursday and I had money direct deposited by 1am Friday morning.

KBB valued it at $10k which was a joke.

Vroom appraised it for $13k which wasn't bad but not what I was looking for.

Carvana was absolutely painless. I'll absolutely do it again if I need to.

This is getting dumb.

It looks like my wife will be leaving her teaching job so we might actually unload this thing if it goes up a little more.

Question for you folks.

How does the Carvana process work with a financed vehicle? Their offer is 600 dollars less than what I owe on the car. Do they pay the finance company directly and I need to pay the difference or do they cut me the check and have me take care of the loan payout? Received a pretty fair offer on my car and considering it if it is as painless as everyone says.

Honestly tempted to get rid of my GTI right now. I absolutely love the car, but I'm just not driving it. Just under 2 years into the lease and I'm at 9200 miles! Car is more or less brand new still, but with less driving/work on the table right now, the payment isn't making much sense...

Ran through a couple quotes:

Carvana: $21,600
AutoLendersGo: $22,300
Vroom: $21,400

So tempting! Just have no idea what I would replace it with right now

Carvana communicates and pays the finance company directly, you would need to provide them the difference before they take possesion of the vehicle.

I’d never heard of ALGo until this thread. Checked the SS with them for the sake of comparison to Carvana and Vroom.

Their initial pre-Zoom meeting appraisal figure is within a couple hundred bucks of what I paid new, three years ago.


It’s not going anywhere, but still, damn... :screwy:

Recently sold my '13 BRZ (18k miles) to Carvana. Easiest way Ive ever sold a car.

Tried to trade it to the dealership I purchased the TT-S from, they offered $15k.

Carvana offered $18k initially. 5 days later, they offered $18,900 for it. :eek:

The procedure was super painless and they deposited the money in my account before the advisor even left my parking lot.

Its been a couple weeks and I still haven't seen it on their website though. Im curious what its listed for. The car was only $28k new.

I feel like I ripped them off. :laugh:

Anyone gotten offers from ALgo or Vroom and then asked the other to beat or exceed? Got an offer from ALgo for almost $2,400 more than Vroom, tempted to ask Vroom to beat it, but not sure if thats a time waster.

After I sent Shift screen shots of offers from Vroom and Carvana, they agreed to beat both by a few hundred bucks but their offer is subject to a visual inspection.

Carvana was the highest for both my cars.

2019 Jetta S manual with 17000 miles - 14,800.
2016 Jetta GLi DSG with 23000 miles - 17,770.

A VW dealer gave me 14,500 for the Jetta S and 17,600 for the GLi, so I took the painless trade ins as opposed to going the Carvana route. These current used car values are crazy.
