Choosing your next vehicle is never easy. First, you have to decide what type of vehicle you want, whether a sedan, pickup truck, or SUV. Once you’ve chosen the vehicle type, you have to decide on the specific model based on the size and features. Finally, you have to choose between new, used, or Certified Pre-Owned. This is where the sales team at Ruge’s Chevrolet steps in, using our expertise to help you find the exact Chevy model for you.
This automotive expertise didn’t happen overnight. It took many years of experience for us to develop. Our history dates back almost 100 years when Joseph Ruge opened his authorized Oldsmobile dealership at his Sunoco gas station up the Hudson River in Rhinebeck in 1935. By 1949, Joseph had added a showroom so that folks in the Hudson Valley could come in and see these great Oldsmobiles for themselves. While Oldsmobile established itself as a leading automobile brand in the Post War era, Joseph Ruge became the go-to dealership in the area, where folks knew they could get an exceptional Oldsmobile car at a fair deal. This is because Joseph combined big brand appeal with a small-town feel at his dealership, something that continues to this day at Ruge’s Chevrolet.
In 1963, Joseph’s son Lewis completed college and three years of service in the US Air Force, joining the dealership to lend his own vision to its future. This was seen in 1970, when Ruge’s opened one of the first Subaru dealerships in America, offering these economical cars alongside the dealership’s Oldsmobiles. This also helped us develop expertise in servicing smaller vehicles.
Tastes change over time, and by 2004, General Motors had decided to discontinue Oldsmobile. Our dealership didn’t miss a beat, expanding to our current location in Millbrook, New York, on the site of the former Audia Motor Sales. This new location allowed us to focus exclusively on Chevrolet cars, trucks, and SUVs. Since our sales and service staff had experience with General Motors vehicles with our 70 years of selling Oldsmobile to Hudson Valley residents, we had no problem transitioning to Chevy vehicles. This continued experience has brought our dealership the kind of expertise you need to give you peace of mind whether you are buying a car from us or bringing in your current vehicle for service.
When you shop at Ruge’s Chevrolet, you will find the benefit that comes with buying from a local, family-owned business. Joseph’s granddaughter Kristen Ruge Hutchins is now the third-generation owner of our dealership. She grew up in the Hudson Valley, so she knows what drivers in this area are looking for in their Chevy vehicles. She also is dedicated to the communities of Rhinebeck, Red Hook, and Middletown, where we run our three locations, employing over 100 fellow residents of these communities. Buying your car from us will give you the ability to leverage our almost 100 years of experience in the automotive industry. This is why you can rest assured that when you buy your next car from Ruge’s Chevrolet, you will be driving home with the right one for you and your family.
Two of the areas of pride in our dealership are our financing and service departments. Each of these goes a long way to make sure our reputation for honest dealing remains intact and that each of our customers is fully satisfied and willing to build a long-term relationship with us.
Not everyone can afford to pay for a new, used, or Certified Pre-Owned vehicle at the time of sale. We understand that each of our customers has a budget for their vehicles. This is why we offer a large number of lease and loan options through our financing department. We work with a wide variety of lenders, which increases your options when you need to finance your next vehicle purchase. We even provide options for drivers who have bad credit. This is key since there are few better ways to rebuild your personal credit rating than through a car loan.
Some folks like to pick out their next vehicle first and then discuss financing. That is perfectly fine. However, if you prefer to come into our dealership with the exact knowledge of your budget, you can apply to get pre-approved for an auto loan at Ruge’s Chevrolet. Simply fill out and submit our easy-to-use online credit form, including your personal and employment information, as well as the specific vehicle that you are considering. All of the information you provide will be kept confidential, while our finance team will use this to get you pre-approved for a loan. Not only will this save time, but it will also allow you to have a budget in mind when you come in to test drive your next car from us.
There are few things more important than keeping your car, truck, or SUV properly serviced. Every motor vehicle needs routine service, like an oil change and tire rotation. In addition, it is vital to have your vehicle inspected from time to time to make sure there are no major problems happening with the powertrain, drivetrain, electrical system, and other key functions. At Ruge’s Chevrolet, we offer a team of highly trained technicians who are standing by to help you with every need you may have to keep your vehicle running smoothly.
We have found that the key to a quality service department is making sure that we have it staffed with trained personnel dedicated to helping our customers. This is why we know you will get high-quality repairs and servicing for your vehicles when you come to our dealership. Many drivers complain about hidden fees at service centers. They find that many upcharge them for things they didn’t want or need on their car. This is we publish our service menu on our website, and our service specialist will discuss the suggested service with you before we begin work. This transparency sets our dealership apart from most others. This is another example of how Ruge’s Chevrolet uses small-town values at our dealership.
