Consider A Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle From Ray Skillman Westside Auto Mall

Why lose money on a new vehicle when you can have it all in the perfect certified pre-owned vehicle from Ray Skillman Westside Auto Mall?

Have you been shopping for a new car around Indy, but have sticker shock? Have you considered buying a certified pre-owned car, truck, or SUV? Let Ray Skillman Westside Auto Mall show you why you should buy from our incredible selection of Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles instead.

It is only natural to want the latest and greatest car on the market, but sometimes, our budgets or life situations dictate otherwise. It may feel like a low blow when you can’t afford a new car, but there are so many reasons why buying a certified pre-owned car can be a better option. Let Ray Skillman Westside Auto Mall explore with you why buying certified pre-owned is the ideal option.

Save Money

This might sound pretty obvious, but when you buy a certified pre-owned car, truck, or SUV, you can save a significant amount of money vs. a brand new car. When you buy a new car, depreciation occurs the moment you drive that car off of the dealership’s lot. This can be upwards of $5,000. Why not let someone else take that hit so you don’t lose your hard-earned cash. Since you save significantly on the sticker price of a certified pre-owned vehicle, that equates to lower monthly payments for you. You can afford a more upscale vehicle for a lower monthly payment. Did you know that when you buy a certified pre-owned vehicle that it could also save you money on your car insurance? Older model vehicles tend to cost less when it comes to full-coverage insurance, which puts more cash back in your wallet. Check out our certified pre-owned inventory when you visit us the Ray Skillman Westside Auto Mall and see how much money you can save.

Warranty Protection

When you purchase a certified pre-owned car, truck, SUV, or van, you get a warranty from the manufacturer of the vehicle you are looking at. These generally vary by manufacturer but can range from a 12-month/12,000-mile limited vehicle warranty to a 10-year/100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty and continue upwards. Other perks included when you buy a certified pre-owned vehicle are rental coverage, again this varies by manufacturer, but with Kia’s Certified Pre-Owned Program, you get coverage for up to $35 per day. Most manufacturers cover towing costs and roadside assistance coverage up to a maximum total per event too, so if your car breaks down under the certified pre-owned warranty period, you are covered. Some manufacturers offer a FREE CARFAX Report, travel breakdown coverage, and 3-months of SiriusXM service for free. For more information on specific warranty coverage stop by Ray Skillman Westside Auto Center, or contact us online.

Ultra Reliable

A warranty can make buying a certified pre-owned car, truck, or SUV appealing enough, but did you know that every vehicle we list as certified pre-owned has to go through a stringent test to become certified? Each manufacturer has its requirements when it comes to testing these vehicles, and most of them require each vehicle to go through a 150 multipoint inspection (with the exception of Mitsubishi, which has a 123-point inspection). This inspection looks for safety, mechanical, and cosmetic issues on the vehicle. If we find something that needs to be repaired, we make the necessary repairs before certifying these vehicles. If it is not up to par, it doesn’t qualify to become certified pre-owned so you know you are always getting a reliable vehicle. Better yet, all of our service technicians are fully trained and certified by each manufacturer so you know they have the knowledge to make sure you are getting a reliable and quality certified pre-owned vehicle. Visit us at Ray Skillman Westside Auto Mall for more information.

One of the best customer experiences ever. These folks go out of their way to make sure you leave happy and satisfied. The sales people, the technicians and the financial advisors treated us with exception care and concern. Even the new young man who took us for a test drive was great and explained most of the features and advantages of the car we were driving. These folks know their automobiles, and were happy to show us as many as we were interested in. We went to look at an Elantra, but got real happy with the perfect color and features of the Kona we drove away in. Highly recommend the Ray Skillman group.

The entire process was streamlined and completely painless. Manny and Kristin were great and I was astounded that they were able to secure financing through an awesome lender. When we got to the dealership everything was ready and from start to finish we were out in under an hour. I was really impressed.

I recently purchased a truck from Ray Skillman with the help of Ron Goode, Mitch, and Kevin Johnson. I came in with my four year old son on Saturday right before a family wedding. I wanted to surprise my husband with a new truck when he got back from a work trip on Sunday. I couldn't have had a better experience with all of the guys. They knew I was on a time crunch (since I wait until the last minute to do EVERYTHING!) and helped me get the truck I wanted on Saturday. Needless to say, my husband was completely surprised and I wouldn't have been able to pull it off without the help of Ron, Mitch, and Kevin!

I purchased my 2013 Hyundai Elantra from this Skillman's back in 2012. The experience we had was excellent, especially considering that we were treated pretty poorly by the Hyundai dealership in Bloomington (that I will never go back to). Because of this positive experience, I decided to check out their used cars after having totaled the Elantra in a 4-car collision on 65. It started with texting about information and setting up some financing, which unbeknownst to me was approved before I got there. Although the process took quite a while (they were busy), and not having intended on purchasing a car that day, we ended up buying the car right then. We were treated courteously and respectfully as we were the first time those years ago.The only reason why I did not give it a 5 star review is because we asked for Brooke and we got Beau. Now, there is nothing wrong with working with Beau (though he does need to work on his poker face lol), but we really wanted to work with a woman because so few of them are in the car sales business, and we want to support those who endeavor into a historically male-dominated field. It would also be beneficial for Skillman's to hire minorities and women into more visible roles. Bring the workforce into the 21st Century and be more representative of the demographics of the city. Seems to me that not doing so is a missed opportunity.
