When shopping at a CarMax store, simply tell a sales associate that you'd like to take the car of your choice for a 24-hour test drive. You’ll be asked to provide a valid driver's license, verifiable comprehensive and collision coverage, and to return the car to the same store on the next business day. Please note, there is a 150-mile limit for 24-hour test drives and the car’s condition must remain consistent with when it left the store.
There's a big safety benefit to buying the newest car you can afford. When you buy a new car, you're ensuring you're getting a car that's up to the most recent safety standards in both crash testing and in safety technology. A new car compared to a used car from even five years ago can have big safety advantages with things like more airbags, a more rigid construction, and more advanced technology like a backup camera which is now mandatory on every new car sold in the U.S.
