How does Carma work?

At its very basic level Carma is a used car retailer. But it goes so far beyond that. If you’re in the market for a used, or "pre-loved", vehicle, you can start browsing cars on the Carma website. Filter not only by make, model and year, but by other specifications such as colour, mileage, body type and CO2 emissions. Once you’ve filtered the options down you can click on each car to see the full list of specifications and history, as well as take a 360° look of the car both inside and out. Once you’ve picked your car, you can put down a $500 deposit to reserve it. You can then choose to pay for the car upfront or apply for finance options with one of Carma’s partners. Carma also offers delivery of the car for purchasers in Greater Sydney.

What features come with Carma?

  • 7-day guarantee. If you change your mind in the first 7 days, Carma will either refund you or help you find a replacement vehicle.
  • Warranty. Each car comes with a comprehensive 3-month warranty.
  • Quality assurance. Each car is inspected and test-driven by experts, and undergoes complete reconditioning.
  • Roadside assistance. Carma offers a 1-year NRMA roadside assistance membership with every purchase.
  • No hassle. You can browse cars online with technical assistance and the car is delivered straight to your home if you’re in Greater Sydney.
  • Fast application. You can purchase the car online or over the phone in a matter of minutes.
  • Flexible finance options. Carma partners with finance providers giving you the option to spread the payment out over time with competitive interest rates and flexible terms.
