So I sold my hellcat to Carvana today.

Overall the process was painless. There were a few annoying things that happened during my initial document review but that was probably just a one-off.

It was a lease and I cleared $12,000 on the deal....didn't want to let it go but the offer was too good to pass up. I have a 2022 Escalade on order but I'm sure I'll be back to the hellcat community one day in some way shape or form.

For anyone wondering, they bought it for $62,000 with 15K on the clock....didn't test drive it or even open the hood. Started it up and handed me a check.

I learned a TON on this forum and there are some really great/helpful folks here. I wish you all well and hope to return some day.

Stay safe.

100% algorithm results... AI calculated profit based on your Age, race, (political affiliation), married/divorced, parent/childless, 10 years tax return, dog owner/car owner, 5 year internet search hx, criminal court hx, civil hx, last three zip code, credit hx. They know you better than you know you. Your car was within the profit margin based on hx. Done deal. Your car was purchased by the Borg. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

Just curious. Why do they care so much about me when my car is just a widget being sold. I see more as the bottom line profit. Buy for x and sell for z. Why would they offer me less and someone else more for the exact same car. They just want a profit seems to me. Please enlighten me since I can't see how an algorithm would matter. I'm not being a smart ass this time!

Awesome deal and I don't blame you. However, I would call Jake and order a new Hellcat right away LOL. I sold a car with Carvana and another to Vroom. Both pretty effortless. Vroom gave me 4k more than Carvana offered for my Charger Scat. SOLD!

My post was goofy and not very well thought out. I was fascinated with your comment that they didn't bother to test drive it or even look under the hood. How do they go about their decision to cut a check for $62,000 for a complex piece a machinery without so much as a hands-on inspection, etc? They must use artificial intelligence or an algorithm to make the decision for them.

Answer, they really don't care. I know this as I bought a hellcat from Carvana and let's just say I've had to spend a fair chunk of money making it right again even though they advertised it as perfect. Was a 2015 with 4K miles on it. Clean and looked perfect but after owning it for a bit I realized it wasn't well loved at all by previous owner. I'm good now as I've brought everything back up to standard and it's now a great car but wasn't near as nice as I expected at first.

I've sold 2 this way but not sure I could pull the plug on a purchase, though. When Vroom advertised the Scat they bought from us for a ridiculous price it showed several close ups photos of nicks and scratches all over the car that they claim will NOT be fixed for the next buyer. They beat the ish out of it during transport I guess. What a shame since we kept it immaculate.

Interesting on the lease. I have leased many cars and traded them in just like you would any other car. Was leasing my current hellcat and had a trade all lined up for another car and when that dealership called the leasing company, the payoff was $97k!!! $30k higher then the payoff to me if I bought the car outright from the leasing company. Obviously the trade deal fell through.

So i bought the hellcat from the leasing company this weekend so I can do whatever I want with it now.

Some manufacturers are responding to the whole lease vroom/carmax/carvanna buy back cash out....by requiring the lessee to purchase car not a third party...this is mainly because of the global inventory shortage...dealers have no new stock. Acura/honda financial have gone this route...

Wow...I was wondering where you went....guess that explains that.
I thought your car was gorgeous with the granite & the matte vapor wheels

Good luck with the Escalade!
