I was being all doom and gloom before...
At least it's Carmax and not Carvana or Zoom.
Carmax isn't perfect.. but they manage to keep a fairly good reputation due to actual customer service and warranty support, and do seem to actually inspect their cars before selling them (unlike Carvana).

The same thing happened with TrueCar a few years back.
I used to use cars.com for vehicle specs.
Then at one point they just dumped all that text.
I am not sure why.. because you would think just basic text on a website would require very little server storage space.
Or maybe they had too much traffic for just spec info?
I just checked their history and don't see an obvious acquisition at that time.
Maybe it was just something done at one point to make it "more efficient" if they did have space concerns.
Sucks that we lost such an easy source for basic cars specs though.
