At Ray Skillman Ford, we know Indianapolis. Our group offers a wide variety of vehicles across multiple brands, so it’s stunning for us to come out and say that one particular vehicle is made for Indianapolis drivers, but here it is. The new Ford Fusion is made for Indianapolis.
We know this because we listen to our customers. Unlike many dealers in the area who view customers as “just another sale,” we build relationships with those who do business with us because we’re a part of this community. What we’ve heard from people like you is that the safety (2016 IIHS Top Safety Pick+), power (2.7L EcoBoost V6 engine powering the Fusion V6 Sport), and technological advancements (too many to list, but SYNC 3 is very cool) are top on the list of needs for people in the Indy area. Those insights help us to come to the conclusion that the Fusion is worth considering for you and your family.
Once you’ve decided that the Fusion is an option as your next new or pre-owned vehicle, it’s important to understand that Ray Skillman Ford is the right place to find one for everyone in the Indianapolis area. Our commitment to the community translates into three important things: we value every person whether they’re our customers or not, our team is made up of people who are from the area (no “hired gun” outsiders here), and we rely on our customers to be our public advocates. We’ve been in the area long enough to know that many dealerships rely on slick sales techniques and a “churn and burn” mentality. At Ray Skillman, we take pride in demonstrating that we’re here for the long-term relationships with our customers and their families.
Something that many people don’t realize about the automotive industry is that dealers generally “lean” towards new vehicles or pre-owned. For some, they prefer the ease of selling new vehicles because it requires less interaction with their customers after the sale. For others, they push their customers towards pre-owned vehicles because the potential profit margins can be higher. We understand that buying a vehicle is an extremely important decision for you. That’s why we don’t “lean” one way or the other.
Our goal is to act as your automotive consultants. Some people are natural fits for purchasing new, while others see benefits in purchasing pre-owned. We have no preference. As long as we can help you find the right vehicle to match YOUR needs, we’re here to help you make that happen. There’s a sense of quality and assurance that comes with buying a brand new vehicle, so if that’s your preference, we have plenty of new Fusions available for your to consider. There’s also a benefit to buying pre-owned when it comes to saving money and getting a vehicle that is still very high quality without paying for that “new car smell.” We’re just as prepared with an excellent selection of pre-owned Fusions for your to consider.
Regardless of which type of vehicle condition fits you the best, our intention is to help you find it. You won’t find pushy salespeople here trying to coax you in one direction or the other. Instead, we’ll help you make the decision through honest consultation if that’s what you’d like. If you’re already set one way or the other, we’ll guide you to those vehicles and help you pick out a winner!
Over the years, we’ve developed a reputation in the Indianapolis area of having the highest levels of customer service compared to any other group or individual dealership. This has been part of the Ray Skillman “DNA” since we opened and it translates into generations of customers who wouldn’t shop anywhere else.
With that said, things are different now. The transparency that the internet offers to consumers has made it extremely easy to shop dozens of different dealerships in a day instead of having to drive around town hunting for a deal. This is why we believe in complete and total transparency. From our specials to our tremendous inventories, we clearly mark prices for our customers online so you know what to expect before making the drive. That’s how the new digital economy works and at Ray Skillman Ford, we’ve fully embraced it.
As our customers already know, we do not believe in a standard practice used by many dealers in the industry: the bait and switch. We do not have a single vehicle that we advertise with a super-low price to get people to come buy it, only to find out that the inexpensive vehicle was sold “moments ago.” That practice has never been something we adopted and now that more people are becoming aware of it, we’re grateful for our decision to avoid it completely. Honesty triumphs over “tactics” in today’s world and Ray Skillman Ford is perfectly suited to deliver on the transparency you deserve.
One of the best things about the digital era is that the people have greater reach than ever before. It wasn’t too long ago when a bad experience at a car dealership meant that customers had to make phone calls, perhaps file complaints with the various bureaus, and tell their friends and family to avoid a particular store. Today, we have the power of review sites at our fingertips.
This has been a major benefit for Ray Skillman Ford. We have always wanted our customers to be able to tell the world about their experience because we proudly treat everyone with the respect that they deserve. We’ve also hoped for a time when bad experiences that we hear about that happen at other dealerships could be exposed. Thanks to the rise of sites like Cars.com, DealerRater, and Google Reviews, we have the benefit of both.
Unlike most dealerships, we proudly display our reviews on our website. This isn’t because we’re perfect. Our company attitude of complete transparency means that we encourage everyone to let us and everyone else know about how we treated them. We don’t hide our reviews. Instead, we want everyone in the Indianapolis area to know how we do business and why they should consider us first for their next vehicle purchase or service. That’s the best way for consumers to share their experiences, whether good or bad, so that others can be aware and make their own decisions accordingly. We realize that no business is 100% perfect, but we strive to make every customer happy through the buying process and more importantly after the deal is done. That’s why we’ve been in business in the area for so long. We treat our customers with the utmost respect before, during, and after the sale.
The majority of car shoppers go into the process with a plan in mind. Their intention is to shop several dealerships online, then they plan out their visits based upon the vehicles they find. Whether it’s 3, 5, or more dealerships they intend to visit, there’s something that often happens that they don’t intend. They buy a vehicle before they’ve seen all of their options.
This is done by design. Most dealerships train their salespeople to build a sense of urgency. The use of “high pressure techniques” is intended to prevent people from leaving a dealership without making a purchase. They have been led to believe based upon years of accumulated statistics that once a car shopper leaves the store, the chances of them coming back drop dramatically.
We offer a different experience at Ray Skillman Ford. Rather than pressure our customers, we stand behind our service and pricing. We are very secure in what we offer to customers, so we see no need in using high pressure tactics. The key is to make sure that car shoppers visit us before visiting others. We are confident that after seeing our prices and experiencing how we treat people, if a customer leaves to shop elsewhere, there’s a very good chance they’ll come back to see us. This is why we encourage customers to make us the first stop in their car buying process. Let us show you what we can offer in terms of a great deal and an incredible buying experience. Then, when you shop at other stores, you’ll see a very clear difference. The only time we can’t demonstrate this is if people go to other dealerships first and get pressured into buying before ever coming to see us. Let us show you how we can help first, then compare us to others. We’re confident that you’ll end up buying from us in the end.
Ray Skillman Ford Customer Reviews
Great dealership for purchase from
I started looking online at a new Elantra back in September 2017 and spoke with Taylor. She was so friendly and then had me speak to Manny. I came out and looked at the car. I knew I wanted a Hyundai because I currently have a 2005 Elantra I bought brand new and previously had a 2000 Elantra. Manny knew I wasn't buying that day but was patient and extremely professional with me. He and Taylor continued to work with me with no pressure until I came out and bought the car on 2/8/2018. He spent a lot of time with my husband and I showing us the car which he had all warm and ready when we arrived. For my experience, the Elantra sold itself by being an incredible car, but Manny sold me the Elantra from Ray Skillman in Greenwood which happens to be the farthest Hyundai dealer from our house. Thank you Manny.
After our vehicle was totaled, we were looking for a new truck. Went to different websites, was bombarded by e-mails and phone calls. We ignored them, and called Johnny Stewart at Skillman Ford. He was great on a previous purchase and certainly stepped up to the plate on this one. Everyone at the dealership stepped up to make sure we found what we wanted. They treated us like old friends, not like someone they would never see again. Absolutely would I recommend Skillman Ford.
