Used car superstores, such as Circuit City's Carmax, have begun popping up all over the country. They offer pre-inspected, low mileage, certified vehicles in a low-pressure situation. These stores often have a no-haggle approach to your purchase of a vehicle. This means no negotiating, no hassle, and sometimes a higher price. What you sacrifice in value is often made up for in assurances that you are making a wise purchase.

The major difference between a superstore and a smaller dealer is the negotiation. Usually, the salesperson does not operate on commission and the price on the window is the price you pay. It does not hurt to attempt to negotiate, but it usually won't do much good. Be wary of the add-ons just as you would at any other dealer, and make sure the car is for you.
