Check out the Poll!

It's just for fun, so don't be afraid...

The question is simple. What mode of transportation would you prefer should a Zombie Outbreak occur? I mean, Zombies are everywhere, and you need to get through a city or to a supermarket or up into the mountains....which vehicle, in your opinion, would serve you best?

Fall is Officially Here!

It's about time the weather cools off a bit! We now usher in the era where Arizonans far and wide bundle up tight in the chilly 60 degree weather. I know, our "winter" is brutal, but if you can bare the arctic temperatures, it's actually a good time to buy a car.

Autumn and Fall are the same thing, but I like Fall better, because I can say that our prices are falling too! Haha, funny, I know. I've been called a "Sit-Down Comedian" before. I stand up, tell a joke, and the crowd yells for me to sit down. That was a joke too, by the way.

All jokes aside, the weather is quite nice lately, and it's only getting better. Pretty soon we can shut off our air conditioners and open our windows, even the windows on our cars while we drive! How about moon roofs and convertibles! We've got three hard-to-find Mini Cooper Convertibles, perfect for experiencing the Autumn Air firsthand!

Low Overhead Means Lower Prices!

You got that right. You don't need a 34 million dollar facility to get a good deal on a car these days. In fact, it's quite the opposite. Surprised? I didn't think so. Imagine the mortgage payment! Well, so you don't have to imagine, it's right around $100,000 a month, and that's not counting interest. It doesn't take an accountant to say that's a lot of overhead.

Here at LeSueur's, we own our land and buildings outright. Sure, it may not be the prettiest of places, but our low overhead means lower prices than anyone else can muster. Don't be fooled by expensive ad campaigns on television or crazy promotions blaring over your radio. Those kinds of advertisement don't come cheap, and that adds more overhead to that hefty mortgage payment.

Another great thing about LeSueur's is, not only do we own our buildings and property, we also own all of our vehicles outright. That means there is no interest paid by us, meaning lower overhead. And you already know what low overhead means, don't you?

At 35 years in the same location, we've got to be doing something right. We have helped thousands of people find cars they love, and at great prices all along. You won't find any "dealer ad-ons" here, like the infamous "thousand-dollar window tint," and you'll be paying the lowest tax in Phoenix.

And if that's not enough to drag you down to check us out, may I kindly remind you how kind-hearted we are here. Being family owned and operated, the only bickering that goes on is amongst ourselves....haha, only kidding. We'll try and keep that to a minimum, I promise. But the great thing about us is that there's no fear of being pressured, pushed, shoved, pulled, duped, or succumbing to any other verb with negative connotation.

Come and try it for free. That's right, looking around and experiencing greatness at work is entirely free! You've got nothing to lose but those "dealer ad-ons" and absurd prices!

We Will Never Forget 9/11

People have said that it's better to move past it and get on with our daily lives. In a sense, they are right. We cannot dwell upon the sadness we felt eight years ago.

But to them, I say, we can never forget what happened that day. Thousands of people perished, our lives were changed forever, and our country united more than it had been since World War II. Freedom was challenged, and fear, something we've lived without for so long, became real to us again.

No matter where your political loyalties lie, this was a tragic event for everyone. Our country, our nation built upon a rock, was shaken and brought to its knees. But with each passing year millions forget. A new generation is rising, a generation too young to remember what happened that day. It is our fault that they do not remember. It is our fault if we ourselves forget.

It's too bad that patriotism only comes through on days such as this, only to go away and hide until our next national holiday. Let us turn off "Jon and Kate Plus 8," "American Idol," and meaningless celebrity gossip. It's time for a change, America. It's time to remember who we are and how we got here. Let us always remember.

Labor Day Hours

LeSueur Car Company is celebrating it's 35th Labor Day this year.

We are closed on Sunday, in typical LeSueur fashion, but we'll be open on Monday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. What better way to celebrate Labor Day than by laboring?!

Anyway, I hope everyone is enjoying the rain as much as we are. It's great weather for car shopping.

Happy Labor Day everyone!

Honda Ridgeline

A Honda Ridgeline is to a garage what a swiss army knife is to your pocket. Think about that for a moment.
Swiss army knives are full of handy doo-dads and features to help you accomplish everyday tasks with ease. The Ridgeline does the same, only on a much larger scale. It's a toolbox on wheels, a rugged all-wheel drive workhorse, and an industrially styled people mover.

Although obscure and oddly shaped, the Honda Ridgeline is a truck above the rest. It's not a full-size truck, but it has an in-bed payload of similar capacity. Ridgeline has a first-ever dual action tailgate, opening like a conventional tailgate, and also being able to swing it out like a door. Underneath the bed of the truck is a seperate compartment big enough for multiple sets of golf clubs, which is lockable and waterproof, for the few rainy days here in Arizona. I guess it's probably dust/dirt proof, too.

Don't discount these trucks just because of their looks. They're roomy, functional, and reliable. Honda makes more engines than any company in the world. That would be a different story if their products weren't such high quality.

We had two Ridgelines, but one already sold. We're always trying to get more of them, but they go fast. Come check it out today, or tomorrow...but don't come in on Sunday. We also have Tundras and Tacomas on our lot, but hurry, they go fast too.

Come and See the Difference, but Come Before We Close, Please

While I love to sell cars, few things are worse than watching a few customers roll in just moments after we've closed. It can be frustrating even a few minutes before closing. Sometimes I think people have the idea that buying a car is as simple as swiping a credit card. We are very fast, compared to most places, but not that fast. Other times I have the feeling that people just hate us (car sales people) and wish to enact their own form of vengeance upon us by showing up at the close of business.

Might I offer a suggestion to people wanting to pay us a visit. Our sales guys get hounded all day long. By the end of the day, the average guy has been hung up on 7 times, completely ignored by customers on the lot 3 times, and had their mother insulted 38 times (figures may vary). The point is, by the end of the day, we get grumpy and grouchy. We want to go home. We want to give up and never come back. Being outside in the heat singes our fuses down to the point of combustion, and dealing with people who often want to steal our cars (by offering a price WAY too low) doesn't help either.

On to the suggestion: come and buy a car in the morning. Make our day a bright and happy one, and catch us when we're slow and groggy. We'll be much more upbeat, energetic, and friendly. However, wait until closing time, and I can't place a "Guarantee" sticker on that one.

Remember, we're just like you. We're not some wishy-washy, slick haired, gold totin' scum bags. Sure, they're out there, but we hate them just as much as you do, if not more! It's those cheating liars that give us a bad name, which in turn make us have bad days. It's all their fault.

Anyway, come down and see us, just not after closing. By that time we just simply can't stand being around each other anymore, and you might not enjoy watching us engage in epic battle, a family civil war (not actually, but it would be neat, right?). We are open Mon-Fri from 8:30am to 6:00pm, but we stay an extra hour from Tuesday through Thursday. On Saturdays we sleep in a little, and come to work from 9:30am to 5:00 pm.

We hope to see you sometime between open and close. Thanks for reading!
