The Mike Patton Auto Family - Your Hometown Dealer
At Mike Patton Auto Family, we are proud to be a part of the Lagrange community. Since the day we opened our doors in 1973, we have watched Lagrange grow, change, and flourish. For almost five decades, we have forged valuable relationships and have been blessed beyond belief. We Are Your Hometown Dealer and honored to be so.
Because Lagrange has been so amazing to us, we do our best to return the favor by treating our customers like family! We wholeheartedly support local Lagrange charities, nonprofit organizations, schools, and churches. We also host many special events, community functions, and more. Most of our employees were born and raised here in Lagrange, which makes us a tight-knit group working to improve our community.
Experience The Mike Patton Family Treatment
If you visit any Mike Patton Auto Family dealership, our culture permeates through our employees. We empower our employees to make decisions without worrying about negative ramifications if they make a mistake.
We expect a lot out of our employees because they are tasked with the responsibility of communicating our core values through their actions and treatment of customers. As a result, we always look for extraordinary people, but the most important facet is whether they are good people.
Mike Patton Auto Family places a significant amount of focus on training, development, overall personal improvement. Our goal is to hire the best people, so they can perform like a well-oiled championship team for you. In order to achieve this goal, we've gotten rid of the competitive sales atmosphere and replaced it with teamwork, encouragement, and communication.
One Goal, One Price, No Sales Commission!
At Mike Patton Auto Family dealerships, we do things differently! Instead of paying our sales professionals on a commission-based structure, all of our salespeople are paid on salary. We nixed commission-based compensation because it caused sales professionals and management to lose focus of customer satisfaction.
In reality, commission-based compensation rewards sales professionals for possibly taking advantage of customers and selling the vehicle for unnecessarily exorbitant amounts of money. In the end, this situation commonly resulted in the customer leaving with severe buyer's remorse and negative associations for car dealerships.
Unlike other dealerships, we pay our employees a salary and price our vehicles with the innovative Mike Patton Auto Family One-Price structure. It's simple - the price you see is the price you pay with any applicable taxes. Instead of trying to take the customer for all we can get, we strive for everyone to be on the same page working toward the same goal, which is your ultimate satisfaction.
When you purchase a vehicle from Mike Patton Auto Family, you'll never have to worry if you could've gotten a better deal, because you will "Get the Same Great Deal as Anyone."
Our Price Protection Guarantee Lets You Buy with Confidence
At other dealerships, it's not uncommon to spend hours "wheeling and dealing" only to drive down the street to see the exact car you bought at a lower price. You will never experience this phenomenon at any Mike Patton Auto Family dealership. By removing commission-based compensation, we are able to keep our overhead low and offer customers exceptionally low One Price. However, we don't just talk about it - we back it up with a Price Protection Guarantee that ensures No One Beats a Mike Patton Price.
Get to Know and Grow With the Mike Patton Family Tree
From the moment you arrive at one of our dealerships, you become part of the family. On any given day, you can find Chris, Brian, and David (the Patton brothers) walking through the dealership getting to know customers or chatting it up with employees. After growing up in the dealership, they have continually transformed and molded the Patton Philosophy into what it is today.
Although their father Mike Patton is retired, you can still find him promoting and encouraging the family atmosphere that he originally started. You'll undoubtedly notice how well Mike Patton taught his sons about the unprecedented value of you - the customer.
The Patton Auto Family has an immense passion for their employees and customers. Since they're Lagrange locals, you may even see them out on Bull Street or savoring cuisine at A Taste of Lemon, Charlie Joseph's, or any other local eateries. If you do, don't hesitate to say "hello." Besides, you're family!
