I've gotten a couple of text messages and emails from Carvana saying the re-scheduled delivery is on time and I should have my ID and insurance card ready for the delivery. BUT THEN...I get a call from them and guess what? The car is still in New Jersey. I am in California. The text messages and emails were obviously sent without anyone actually confirming them.
Delivery attempt #1 - Carvana fail.
Delivery attempt #2 - Carvana fail.
Delivery attempt #3 - I would be an idiot to allow this to continue.
As stated previously; I wish I had never started this deal with Carvana.
Pros and Cons:
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

After stewing over this for a few days, I’ve come to the conclusion that Carvana has simply built a better mousetrap.
The product is identical to all other dealers. Carvana thinks they’re separating themselves from competitors by doing the deal completely online and I’ll admit they’ve done a decent job. EXCEPT...I haven’t gotten my car and have no idea if I’ll ever get it. That’s a major screw up if you’re a CAR DEALERSHIP.
Like many other negative reviews, I’m getting a vague statement that my vehicle "missed the transport" rig headed to my area. When I inquire about more details their chatbot says no humans are available after hours. Uh...it’s 10 am.
Any time/effort you think you’re saving at Carvana will be wasted by their process that starts after you sign the contract. They’re great at getting the contract signed but buffoons when it actually matters.
I’ve rescheduled the delivery and re-signed contracts but have yet to receive any direct human communication that my vehicle will be delivered on their second attempt.
I wish I had never started this deal with Carvana.
