Committed to creating the most pleasurable car-buying experience in the Valley, the dedicated team at LeSueur Car Company provides an honest, upfront and low-pressure experience for every sales and service customer.
“We know that it is especially important with back-to-school times and times when major decisions can be stressful, to make car-buying as fun and worry-free as possible,” says Warren LeSueur, who, with his wife, Carolyn, started their business shortly after they were married.
With 38 years in the same location, LeSueur Car Company maintains their customer-focused priority and matches that with continuing improvements and the best selection of pre-owned cars anywhere.
“We go across the country looking for the best used cars and acquire inventory via our connections from all over the nation,” says Warren, who has been a buyer for 38 plus years.
They offer a large inventory, with 340 cars, trucks and vans, and, Warren says, “If we don’t have it, we can get it.” They specialize in VW, Toyota, Audi, Kia, Hyundai, Volvo, Nissan, Mini Cooper, Honda and BMW.
“We offer really cool, fun to drive, nice to be seen in, exceptionally clean, low-mileage, reliable cars,” Warren says.
Most are under manufacturers’ warranties and extended warranties are offered on all cars.
Because LeSueur’s is on a county island, customers pay no city sales tax, saving 2 percent or more. Plus, customers can visit www.usedvwaudi.com for a $300-off coupon.
“We offer great financing, trade in’s are welcome, and we ship to most places in the nation,” Warren says.
Plus, for service, “there is no need to go anywhere else. We can take care of all your automobile needs with personal, expert service.”
Two years ago, they opened a 6,400-square-foot showroom and display area, improved parking area and state-of-the-art shop.
“We are full service and do anything from painting to tinting windows to all maintenance and repairs. We have the lowest shop rates in town, and we work on all makes and models,” Warren says.
Top-of-the-line equipment includes Hunter alignment and tire mounting and balancing machines and B and G engine transmission and brake cleaners, all manned by LeSueur’s ASE-certified and well-qualified technicians. They also offer excellent paint and bodywork touchup service.
Warren and Carolyn, who still run the company, credit their staff—including sons and long-term employees, Kris, James and Steven; nephew, Kyle LeSueur; and Ryan Biggs—with the ratings LeSueur’s achieves. They maintain an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau and a 5.0 rating at DealerRater.com.
“We follow the Japanese philosophy of Kaizen for continuous improvement. We are always looking to better ourselves, our automobile selection, our service and customer care,” Warren adds. “We also believe we do better as a company by closing on Sunday and setting aside family time.”
Sales staff members speak Spanish, Phillipine Vesyan and the Cebu language.
