This experience was so easy I didn’t feel pressure at all. Marcus and Matt behnke were so attentive to our needs. Great conversation
I couldn’t believe that the car buying experience could be so easy and customer friendly! Darla was awesome!
I was very impressed with the members who help me and Brad Showers was such a great help.
Quintin and Kenny were fantastic to work with! They were patient and kind to my husband and I as we test drove many models and asked numerous questions. We didn’t feel pressured or rushed and they made the process a fantastic experience. We went to other dealerships to try other models (first time purchasing a SUV), but came back to this one due to their quality and variety of cars and approachable team! Quintin and Kenny picked right back up with assisting us when we returned and assisted us well into the evening. The finance representative was awesome too! ...
I am very pleased with the insurance agent at Ray Skillman whom helped me find the best coverage needed. Thanks again for all the help
Awesome sales finance and service. Bought a Hyundai Santa Crus from them. 100% in every way.
Friendly knowledgeable service. Have been buying cars from Ray Skillman Southside for over 20 years. Always seeks to satisfy the customer.
Great dealership. I have bought a car from them two times now. Good experience both times. Brad was really helpful and friendly.
Dealership is very clean people are very friendly. Darla was the best salesman you could have she was very thorough when showing all the options my car has
We have bought multiple cars from Ray Skillman Southside dealership. The customer service is always fantastic and is a big reason why we continue to keep coming back. Austin is always a pleasure to work with.
It was a great experience. The closing was upsetting and almost didn’t go through with the purchase. Pushing a longer warranty at the end made me think I should worry about the quality of car. I called the manager when I got home and he resolved the issue. It ruined my excitement for the night but talked with others to reassure this is the car for me. I picked up the car the next day. I hope financial closing staff know when to back off when they know a customer is not interested. They should still represent your car ...
Quinton was wonderful! He was so very kind; polite & patient w/ me. He did everything he could to work w/ my budget & made me feel comfortable w/ my purchase. I highly recommend if you're in the market for a Hyundai or Genesys - go see Quinton!
Quinton; very nice and polite and helpful with all of are needs, he is one of the nicest person you can ever asked for very good salesman .We been to several car lots and they lessen very Quinton on how to deal with the public. Quinton is one of the best. Thank you for your help ! Hats off to Quinton and Walter. Thank you Robert /Janice Reed
Great experience! Our Sales Rep, Nick Woodring always excellent. We were purchasing from out of state and he always responded promptly to questions. Nick found a very small bubble in our window tint and had it corrected on the spot. He spent all the time we needed going over the features in our new Tucson Hybrid and helps with questions even after we left!
I was very happy with the experience working with Darla to find a Hyundai for me with all the safety features. She was very professional and answered all my questions.
The best experience I’ve ever had buying a new car! Phenomenal! Highly recommend them!
Cornell was great. He really took care of us! He found us a truck we wanted and I love it! He took time to show me all the extra features on our truck. Great job!

The customer service and honesty from my salesperson Briana Devine was top notch, and the sale went very quick and she made sure the car was cleaned and ready to go by the time I returned to pick it up.great job on everyone involved with the sale.
Recommend this dealership. Everyone was friendly and professional. Sale went quickly.
Our salesman was Andrew Swan. Came in on his day off to make sure ouir new car was ready to go after our purchase. This is my first hyundai and I have enjoyed both the quality of the ride and the experience with the dealership. This was thru Ray Skillman Hyundai Southside.
We just love our car. First hyundai we ever owned and we can tell its a quality car. Our salespeople were fantastic. Me and my wife would highly recommend RAY SKILLMAN .Our salesman was Quinton Tibbott and his team.
Everyone was super friendly and helpful. I love the car I bought and they did everything they could to make sure I got it. I also loved the offer on getting insurance, which I actually have a lower payment on now.
Zach C. is very professional and knowledgeable with a touch of Humor.. Most pleasant Sales Experience we had in Years. Highly recommend - Thank you very much
This dealership and sales person made the buying experience delightful, easy and efficient. The process was respectful and honest. Highly recommend this dealership and its staff.
Josh was very professional and helped us to quickly purchase the vehicle and get back on the road to home. (3hrs away) He saw we would have a long day of travel and quickly brought us to the new car office and got the vehicle washed and tires dressed and into the finance office and the finance officer whose name escapes right now was friendly, professional and did his best as well to answer all our questions and get us out the door!!! We are very happy with our purchase the vehicle is in top notch condition! Thank you Ray ...

Great buying experience working with Matt Brown and Kevin Knafel
Great experience finding a car. Bree was very determined to find me a car , she is great!!!! I would recommend Bree to others for sure.
Had such a great experience getting into a new car at Ray Skillman. Andrew Woollacott was great! He was straight to the point and answered all of our questions. He really was a pleasure to work with and my husband and I will continue to go back to him. He made the car searching process so easy!
My wife and I were very happy with the way we were treated by Tyler Gamble. He will be highly reccamended to every one we know who is looking for a car. His kindness and honesty was very helpful.he tookalot of time to make our experience great.
John Gregory worked to find me the best deal. I highly recommend shopping here for any vehicle you are looking for. They will take care of your every need.
Pleasant staff that worked hard to.close the deal. A very pleasant experience overall. I am a satisfied customer that will return for my future automotive needs
Darla was amazing! She was so friendly and easy to work with. There was no pressure or sales tactics. She carefully took time to explain car features and the whole car buying experience. We are very excited about our 2022 Tucson!
Everyone from the sales person, finance person, and insurance person were all kind and helpful. They found me my dream auto and got me into it with a price I could afford. I will be shopping Hyundai for a life time. Thanks.
Ray Skillman was so easy to work with. Everyone was so kind and professional. We bought a 2021 Sonata. We are so happy with the car & the great service they provide. They explained everything on the car before we left with it. Everyone we felt with was amazing.
Ray Skillman is an easy dealership to work with. Just purchased a 2021 Kona. This is the only dealership two generations of our family have used. Josh Polk went above and beyond in helping me get the right vehicle. Their sales department is easy to work with and the service department is top rate.
The Ray Skillman team is awesome to work with. Everyone goes the extra mile to show professionalism. Sean I have traded vehicles with several times is just the best.
Easy to work with. Dealership worked with us on our trade and drove off with a new car in a couple of hours. Nick in sales was great
Nick Woodring, the sales person was so patient and friendly in showing deals to us. We had nice experience and also we got all the details needed.
Special thanks to Quinton Tibbott, Sales Team Leader, for helping me out with the purchase of my new Chevy truck. His partnership made the process and decision making an easy buying experience
I am very happy with my recent deal at Skillman! With the help of my repeat salesperson Andrew Woollacott and Chris at the sales desk. They made me an offer on my trade putting me in a 2020 Elantra that I couldn't turn down. I also want to thank the finance person that finalized the deal. Both Andrew and his dad Pete have made deals happen for me through many years at Ray Skillman South.
Love my new car. The dealership is the best and Quinton Tibbott is a terrific sales person. He went above an beyond to help me
FROM TOP TO BOTTOM VERY SMOOTH AND TIMELY PURCHASE, EVERYONE VERY HELPFUL .FROM PRICE TO FINANCING COULD NOT HAVE BEEN TAKEN CARE OF ANY BETTER
From Darla my sales person through Kevin the Sales Manger who help my dream car come true, through finance, everyone I dealt with was top notch !
I've been going to this dealership for 8yrs. Always the best customer service, friendliest staff, and most comprehensive experience that I could ask for! I will always be a customer!
Very comfortable experience . Good as it gets related to buying an automobile, good people good Deal. Initial contact with sales was pleasant experience, no pressure. Unlike many dealerships and sales people whom just want to sell you a car this young man was interested in what it was that i was really looking for.
BEEN HERE BEFORE AND CAME BACK. DARLA WAS GREAT AT HER JOB. MY IDEA OF GREAT CAR SELLS BEGINS AT RAY SKILLMAN, WITH GREAT SALES ALL THE WAY THRU FINANCE.
Billy Binder was fabulous we have purchased several automobiles with Ray Skillman not for several years though, my husband purchased a Ford F150 on Saturday and when he came home to show me this new truck before purchasing said you need to come back to the dealership with him, said the sales person was great, after we signed off on the truck I searched the lot for an updated Ford Escape found my dream car 2017 Ford Escape, I had purchased my 2011 new car at Ray Skillman and loved my Ford Escape decided it was time to upgrade, Billy was wonderful ...
Ray Skillman’s sales team was great. Sean McCarty met all my needs and answered all my questions. My new car was ready to go!
Carson Flory was extremely helpful and made sure that my Boss 302 was delivered as advertised and as promised. He answered all my questions and even took videos of the car for me. I live in California so I wasn’t able to see the car or test drive it. Their delivery team Montway and Masney Auto Enclosed Inc was excellent. Ray Skillman Ford made sure that I received a top notch delivery team since these Boss 302’s are limited additions. Carson is a great asset to Ray Skillman Ford dealership! I also want to thank Kevin who handled my loan ...
We are repeat customers for a reason. Working with Johnny Stewart is always a pleasure. He goes above and beyond to meet our needs and expectations. We love our truck!!
I showed up with 10 minutes notice, to test drive a Palisade. Quinton had it pulled up to the front & ready when I arrived. He quickly, but in thorough detail, went over the SUV before I drove it. Striaght to the point. The deal was made quickly, with the help of Kevin. I have no complaints.
Outstanding experience: professional in every regard. Every phase of the process was easy and flawless. Sales, finance and delivery were above typical norm. This is our third purchase from Skillman Ford and Hyundai and will definitely continue with Skillman Enterprises.
Going through end of lease has always been painful. Skillman staff made this one easy. Purchased used this time and actually enjoyed the process. Didn't take much time at all. Braden & Duane helped us move through the process and we were very pleased with the outcome.
Excellent customer service all the way from the salesman to lot person to sales management to finance to insurance to the tech guru: as made for a very satisfactory customer experience 🙂
My first great car buying experience and I am old! No pressure just great service! Very very helpful in all aspects of car buying.Did not feel like I made a bad deal! Love our car!
The best car buying experience i have ever had. Definitely would recommend this dealership. The individuals i dealt with were all extremely nice and patient.
The best dealership that I've ever been involved with. Willing to go the extra mile to satisfy my needs in a vehicle. Everyone from sales to finance were all first class individuals. Mr. Skillman is to be commended for employing individuals such as these.
Staff were all very courteous and helpful and friendly. Darla was very knowledgeable. Price agreed on was fair and the process was smooth. No high preasure. New vehicle was delivered spotless and full of gas.
It was definitely the best car buying experience I have ever had the team was very fast efficient and helpful I recommend them too anyone who needs a vehicle
The Utter team makes the horror of car buying a pleasure. They listen to and respect the buyer. I needed special consideration which they provided. The website isn’t easy to use. I still prefer people.
My husband and I had been looking for a Buick Enclave and with the amazing help by Melissa Goodrich and Brent Fisher, we were able to find our dream car! It was a wonderful experience all around and we were treated like royalty the entire time. Melissa was a huge help and has a wealth of knowledge when finding us the right Enclave! She spent countless hours researching, and asking us questions about exactly what we wanted. She took great care of us through the entire process. Brent was amazing to work with on the actual sell and trade-in side! ...
Great experience. Tyler and Ron were great to work with. Both are easy going and easy to talk to. We were laughing and talking the entire time like old friends. I highly recommend Skillman Hyundai.
I have purchased 4 cars from them and my son purchased his first car from them, Darla has sold us every car and she is fabulous and Josh in finance has always worked with me to get the best rates possible. This will be the only place I ever buy a car from as they have worked with me every time I go in and my son said there service department goes out of there way to help him.
Jessika from ray. Skillman is the best. When no one would help she got me down. Great friendly people. Easy to work with. I now I will go back again. Thanks ray skillman
Everyone at the dealership was great to work with and Zach Closson was particularly helpful in answering all of my questions, addressing all my concerns, and giving me a great price for a 2019 Ranger. Everyone at Ray Skillman Ford made my purchase an efficient and pleasurable experience.
Jim Everett and Greg Young were wonderful. They made my buying experience a pleasant one. They saw me as a human being, not as a Commission! Being a woman with little experience in cars buying, they made me feel protected! Will definitely recommend this dealer!
Great place to buy a vehicle great people to deal with! Made our buying experience great! Highly recommend looking here first before purchasing a vehicle!
Darla was amazing and very patience while we figured out what kind of vehicle we wanted! We are very happy with our new Palisade! Great job!
I admired his care and discernment for our needs. We need more of his skills in other customer relation type fields. Keep up the good work🙋🏾♀️
This is our first time owning a Hyundai. The Staff couldn't have been more helpful, informative, nice & professional. Darla & Kat are Awesome! We had been to another Hyundai dealership and your dealership, by Far, out-performed them in less than a 12 hour period. (we had been dealing with the other folks for 2 weeks and got nowhere!) We LOVE our new Palisade!! Thanks again for making it so easy to buy our first Hyundai.
Let me start with thanking Stephanie for all of her “behind the scenes” help! She is great!!! When I arrived at the tent sale, Johnny helped me get into the first car I wanted. I scored an2015 with only 6015 miles, that’s right just over 6000 miles!! It’s like brand new!! My boyfriend was with me and he loved the looks of a 4Runner at the tent sale and we went back the next morning and traded his Dodge 2500 Cummins in for a 4Runner! Shout out to Mike Hendricks for all your help and entertaining us during the waiting process! ...
They have a great process in place... just what you'd want to experience while buying a vehicle, both Travis and Steve were good to work with, I have already recommended a friend to contact them !
We had a great experience with getting our first car from Ray Skillman. During our time we did not feel any pressure to buy the car and Darla and her assistant were wonderful to work with. They made getting a new car easy and simple as can be. We would highly recommend getting your next car from them! We even drove 3 hours and has no regrets! Thank you!!
Internet. I contacted the dealer and spoke with Johnny Stewart on the phone, negotiating a price, as I was to travel 340 miles to see this car. He agreed to hold the car for me, and I came all the way from Detroit, MI, to test the car and fell in love with it. The car could not have been in better condition, and everyone of the employees was extremely helpful, courteous and friendly. It made the long drive well worth it, especially when I got to drive my new Mustang convertible all the way home!
Awesome experience. Staff was very helpful and friendly ..johnny was amazing to work with and answered all the questions we had.we will Definately be going back
Ray Skillman Ford & South SIde Hyundai has an "In house financing department" (buy-here-pay-here). My Wife and I didn't have the credit to finance a newer vehicle, but did not want to go to a side street buy-here-pay-here place either. Once we found out about Ray Skillman offering a buy-here-pay-here option we went and checked it out. Jim Everett put my wife and I into a 2004 F-150 with low miles and in immaculate condition inside and out! Each and every one of the vehicles goes through a thorough inspection. After a few months we went back and ...
Feel like family and important. Responses quickly and has all the answers. Great sense of humor. Definitely going back to trade in other vehicles. Very polite and respectful.
My husband and I was looking for a used vehicle with a affordable payment. Peter the mgr and Manny who is in sales and financing helped and gave us a very affordable pymt just like we wanted. Very nice and will go back to Ray Skillman to their location because of the great service. Plus we was already pre approved and for the signing of the vehicle was fast and not at the dealership forever. Thanks for the fast and great service!
Everyone here was extremely nice and wonderful! Derek Young was my salesman and was amazing in helping me get into the vehicle I had already had my eyes on and out of my lease that was coming to an end. One of the best car experiences I've ever had. The insurance broker Amber was awesome as well getting me a lower insurance rate and everyone who worked so hard to get me where I wanted to be. Josh Owens also helped me with financing and was great! Highly recommend Ray Skillman Ford Hyundai!!
Andrew was wonderful during my entire experience with Hyundai. I felt he was very sincere and helpful with my new purchase. Finance manger, Hayden also was sincere and was able to get both a manageable interest rate and payment . I was previously a Nissan owner for almost ten years. I had spoke to Nissan about obtaining a new Altima , but the sales rep did not seem sincere and the finance manager never even had the courtesy to come out and meet me. I would recommend any of my friends to their dealership
We always use Chris Darr when buying a car he has always been Honest and patient with us and has always found the vehicle we want and at a great price we are always satisfied with our experience we had shopped at Ray Skillman for over 15 years
My car had died earlier in the morning and I was able to not only go search for a new vehicle, but I was able to purchase one the same day. Being in my early twenties, I was a little nervous to purchase a car. My sales consultant, Mike Johnson, was absolutely awesome. He knew just what I wanted and made sure I found it. The finance gentleman, Gary Wehr(sp?), was also very helpful. It made me more comfortable purchasing a new vehicle after he looked over my finances and found the most affordable price for me. I would ...
Buying a new car from Ray Skillman Ford was an enjoyable and hassle-free experience due to the wonderful employees working there. From our salesmen Josh Hembree and Cornell Wilson to Tom in the finance department, I was made to feel very comfortable during the entire process. I would highly recommend doing business with this dealership.
I went in just to see what I could do and I walked out with a brand new car. Darla was with me every step of the way and answered all of my questions and addressed any concerns. Josh, the finance manager was also great at answering all my questions!
We are now on our 4th Hyundai and have always felt the service center is quick, efficient and always helpful. Our experience in purchasing the latest Kona was through weeks of comparing and as a result of fair negotiation we walked out with a great deal and a new Kona. I certainly appreciate the efforts of all the Skillman team.
Our Customer Service by the Sales Team (Sean McCarty) and Carrie couldn't have been better. Sales let us decide on what we wanted without making us feel like it was a deal that happen right then. Pleasure to work with on a major purchase. Made a purchase in December 2018, and went back in March, 2019 to make another.
I couldn't be more satisfied with my experience at Ray Skillman Ford. The sales staff was knowledgeable of their products and assisted before and after the sale with setting up all the amenities on my new truck. The finance representative had everything completed in less time than I have ever experienced purchasing a new vehicle.
I came in because of a preapproval I had received, and I wanted to see the used cars that were available for me to finance. Pete gave me all the guidance and information I needed to purchase a brand new Hyundai Accent. He was very professional, helpful, and dedicated to making sure I was satisfied with their services. I am very pleased with the outcome of my purchase and I would recommend anyone to come to this Ray Skillman dealership when looking to purchase a vehicle.
Great customer service in all areas. Staff very polite and willing to help each other with the customers. Looking for a used or new car I would recommend very comfortable place to look. You do not feel like you are be pressured to buy or pushed to look at something other than what you are wanting. My thanks go out again to all the staff.
