Awesome sales finance and service. Bought a Hyundai Santa Crus from them. 100% in every way.
I like Ford Dealership😀😀😀😀😀
Tyler and all staff are professional and friendly and knowledgeable about their business. I recommend Ray Skillman dealerships for any car needs. This is my first dealing at Skillman Hyundai but it was a great experience!
Friendly knowledgeable service. Have been buying cars from Ray Skillman Southside for over 20 years. Always seeks to satisfy the customer.
We have purchased our last several vehicles from Josh at Ray Skillman. He is honest, knowledgeable and never pushy. The people in the finance department are friendly and do everything they can to help you purchase the vehicle you can afford. I will continue to shop at Ray Skillman Ford!!
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
My sales representative went above and beyond to help me. I showed up one late Saturday evening looking for a jeep, it wasn’t locatable at first due to it being new to the lot. My sales rep, Nick made sure to give me his information and take mine so he could get back with me first thing Monday morning. He kept his word and reached out on Monday shortly after they opened. I came and viewed the jeep asked for it to be detailed before purchasing and Nick did that and went one step further by filling up my ...
excellent service, very attentive to what I was looking for🥰😁👍
Joe Marcello is the absolute best! He took the time to find out what I needed and he was so friendly! His customer service is unmatched he came in on his day off to make sure I was taken care of on the day I signed my papers. He is more than a salesperson to our family because of the way we were treated!
They took the time to try and get everything I wanted. They were pleasant and helpful. Especially the finance department. Thank You!
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
Quinton was a very helpful salesman. He showed us all of his inventory of what we were looking for. We still didn’t find what we wanted, until he found a car coming to his lot that week. It was exactly what we wanted!
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!
Joe listened to my wants and I got everything I wanted and more. Randy and Kerry we absolutely professional. I couldn’t be happier with the service and professionalism of everyone at Ray Skillman Southside Ford.
We have purchased many cars from Ray Skillman through the years. We knew we could trust them to handle things appropriately even during the supply chain problems happening due to CoVid. Every step of the process was seamless and they made the experience as painless as possible. Thank you to Brook Byrne and Josh Hembree for the excellent service.

We had a great experience at Skillman Ford! We were great promptly by Josh Polk. He showed us the escape that we were interested in and we test drove the vehicle. Josh explained the different functions of the buttons. The rest is history...we bought the car! The Finance manger spoke with us and then we were out of there....We have bought several cars through Skillman and have been very happy.
Sean and the whole team at Skillman were great to work with!! Very helpful during the sale and closing. Sean even answered my calls after I left the lot to answer questions. Would highly recommend Skillman Ford for a vehicle purchase!

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.
Excellent service! Helpful and courteous. They will do what ever it takes to please you. I will buy from them again. I have purchased two vehicles from them. Pleased with both of them.

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.
Sean is amazing. He has always been able to get my family and I into a vehicle that we loved. He goes above and beyond to help us anytime we call. Derrick is also amazing. He has done the financing for all of us and goes above and beyond to get us the best interest rate, etc. I highly recommend Ray Skillman Ford for any of your needs. I know my family and I will definitely be back.
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 ...

First NEW car buyer here! I was put at ease when meeting with Cornell and Nick. I felt very comfortable with them and did not feel as if I could not make jokes and have a laugh throughout my whole visit. no stern or strict salesman here!
Everyone is very helpful. Highly recommend Joe Marcello. He is honest, friendly and customer oriented. This is my second purchase from him. I wouldn't think of buying a car from anyone else.
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 a wonderful sales experience with Cornell Wilson and team. All options were explained in great detail so there were no surprises when I hit finance and everything went smooth as glass. Even with the trade-in, Cornell went to bat and got me over the hump to make the purchase of the new vehicle a no brainer. At this point, I will be sending my family to Cornell any future vehicle purchases.
Went to RaySkillman looking for a car. Found a great car but also found a great dealership I will return to. Clean dealership with very nice , helpful, and knowledgeable staff.
From Darla, my Sales person to Josh, the finance guru all the way to Chris, the Sales Manager they made my recent purchase experience the absolute best it could be. I'm extremely satisfied with every aspect of finding a new vehicle. I would and will highly recommend Ray Skillman Southside Hyundai to anyone. Thanks again to all of you!

This was our families seventh purchase from Ray Skillman in Greenwood. Zach Caudill and Beau Williamson are great to work with, highly recommend this dealership.
Nolan Check was awesome and made my daughter’s first buying experience a great one! He was courteous and went out of his way to get her the car she was wanting.
I wasn’t originally looking to lease a Hyundai however the Kona caught my eye and decided I wanted a test drive. I instantly fell in love with the car but didn’t want to make any decisions that day...fast forward, I left that same day with a leased Kona! I couldn’t pass up the amazing deals they were offering and our conversations were very transparent and open. I felt I wasn’t being pushed into something that wasn’t fitting my financial needs or wants. Loved my experience from the time I pulled in and pulled out ...
Their staff is very friendly and so very helpful!

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.
Awesome people. Isaac Farley was very helpful, patient, and honest thru the whole process. I highly recommend anyone going to buy a used vehicle at ray skillman ask for him. He gets things done, and done properly. I've had bad luck at other dealerships and went in with my radar on full blast. But he didn't bluff about what he was selling me, and didn't try to get me to buy something I couldn't afford. I appreciated his help and again, anyone going to ray skillman of greenwood needs to ask for him.
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.
I bought Toyota Highlander Limited 2011 year produce on this dealer. Everything was good! I am happy to have my car. I highly recommend this dealer!!!!
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.

They made buy in car easy. They listened to my wants and needs in a car then helped me search their inventory. I found the perfect car for me with their help.
Just purchased a new 2021 F-150 from Ray Skillman Ford. They went above and beyond to assist me and my family. They honored their advertised price, rebates and incentives. No hidden fees or gimmicks. Selection was great. They offered me more for my trade then 4 other dealerships I had recently visited, and a staff of about 6 all stayed almost 2 hours after closing to finish the deal in the same day. Cornell was awesome to work with. He was engaging with the kids. Very friendly and helpful. Nicholas initially approached us on the lot and was also great to deal with. He ...
Fantastic buying experience. Sales, financing, and management were great to work with. Just had an issue with initial communication on appointment but staff really made up for it once we were at the dealer. Thank you for a great buying experience!!!!

Great place. Took good care of everything. Financing was easy and smooth transaction. Would definitely recommend. I have bought from here before and will return again if I am in the market for a vehicle.
They were awesome working with my daughter to get her in a car!

Good selection of trucks from which to choose. Informative / friendly staff. Efficiently & quickly worked through the deal / paperwork portion realizing that our time was valuable.
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.
I drive by 20 different dealers and travel over 25 miles so I can do business with Ray Skillman Ford in Greenwood. Without a doubt the very best staff I have ever dealt with in 46 years of buying cars. Service department is also the best.
We worked with Joe Marcello! He’s the best and we would highly recommend him! 😊
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
Just bought a new Palisade from Ray Skillman south side. This is my 6th Hyundai I have purchased from them through Darrell Lyons (sales agent). As always it was a relaxing and pressure less experience. Their customer service is excellent which makes the buying process enjoyable.
Excellent job! Made buying a new car easy. Recommend you check out this dealership in the future if you are buying a car or truck.
Thanks to Carson, Tom and Chris for a great experience and my new Ford Escape!
I can’t thank the team enough at Ray Skillman Ford for getting me into my dream truck. This was quickest car buying process I’ve been through. HUGE shout out to Tia for her excellent communication skills. I wouldn’t have this truck if it wasn’t for her. She stayed in contact with me all week regarding the status of the truck, and contacted me as soon as it was out of service. Joe, our salesman was great too! He was very personable and knowledgeable.
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.
