    This is an update on my Carvana experience.

    I originally received an offer of $29,200 for my 2013 GMC SLT 1500 which I thought was really high. I didn't think much of it and let it be. I checked in 4-5 days later and I got an offer for $30,700 which is crazy. I made an account and took the offer. I had to send in a picture of the title, driver's license, and odometer. It was approved the same day (Monday).

    I scheduled an appointment for today at 2:30. The guy came a few minutes early with all the paperwork ready. He started it up but did not drive it. He gave me a check and I had to sign 6-7 documents. It took all of 3 minutes. A tow truck is coming later to pick it up.

    I could not have asked for a better experience. By far the best car experience I have ever had and I'm not sure it could get any better going forward. I would highly recommend them to anyone (at least in terms of selling). I will absolutely use them again.

    10/10

    Update: Listed for $33,990 one week later.

    I bought a daily from them a few months back (G37X Coupe). Easiest experience I’ve ever had buying a car. Literally bought it through the app and it was delivered 3-4 days later.

    Damn I might have to look into them for my 16 GMC SLT. It only has 24,000 miles, and didn't pay much more for it than you got for your 13. I might make money on it lol

    There's a reasons Carvana is gaining in popularity despite overcharging for their cars. I hope they put dealerships out of business.

    Sold my wife's Mitsubishi Outlander Sport to Carvana. Luckily before the Jatco CVT went out of warranty.

    Carvana offered $35.5k for my '14 RS5. The going retail price is $37-38k. Best dealer trade offer I received was $29K.

    Deal's not done yet, but Carvana seems like the easy button.

    My truck only had 35k miles so it was a bit of a gem. It didn't have a backup camera or navigation though which many of the 13+ SLT's had. I paid 33,500 for it 6 years ago. I didn't drive it much but it saw two Wisconsin winters and six Michigan winters which is enough salt for any car. I feel really good about it.

    Also tried my 2020 Telluride SX (fully loaded) and said I would have to call to get an offer.
