Used Car Search
I’ve just driven past a big building site at the bottom of The Headrow in Leeds and what used to be, for those of you old enough to remember, the Quarry Hill Flats (where Queenie’s Castle with Diana Dors was filmed in the early 70’s) and I noticed that it’s now going to be part of Leeds City College.
I must admit I was surprised they were using a very high-value City Centre site for a college, but I guess that’s just me having a business brain.
Anyway, it got me thinking – here at Luscombe’s we have 50 staff and I believe that only one of them has a degree - the others, like myself, are either apprentice trained, self-trained or have just learnt lessons in life, and do a great job! I reckon it’s a great pity that we push everyone down the road of further education - I for one was much happier working and learning and doing day-release than I would have been staying on at school, so in my opinion, we should encourage young people to do whatever vocation suits them, but do it well.
Fortunately, apprenticeships are on the increase – in fact we shall be looking for two more apprentices this summer. Overall in this country we have a manual skills shortage, and the jobs with the highest pay might not be in IT, but rather mechanics, plumbers, joiners etc, and certainly when the central heating doesn’t work or the car won’t start, we all know they are worth their weight in gold!!

Luscombe Suzuki Leeds Aftersales
I am Robin Luscombe, the owner of the business and I have built Luscombe Suzuki Leeds to totally customer focused foundations - so I believe that good service is what my customers should expect – not be surprised when they receive it!! My aim however is for my team and I to exceed your expectations.

Of the team of technicians - Paul and Jake are Suzuki Master Technicians with considerable Suzuki experience, Jamie is fully qualified having completed his 3 years' Suzuki apprenticeship, Tamweer and Kane have extensive manufacturer knowledge and Tamweer is a qualified MOT Tester. Michael is in his second year of a Suzuki apprenticeship.
Lowest labour rates of any Suzuki dealer!
I would like you to bring your car back to us for servicing and replacement parts because you want to – not because the warranty says you have to! For that reason the first decision I made on purchasing Luscombe Suzuki Leeds in July 2010 was to reduce our prices and we now offer the lowest labour rate of any Suzuki dealer within 100 miles, and probably a lot further! dealers usually charge the earth, well not here! I don't want you to come back to Luscombe Suzuki Leeds because the warranty says you have to. I want you to come back because you want to! And we all know cost is very important, so the first job I did when I bought the dealership in July 2010 was to reduce our prices! Our Q8 Oils don't come in gold plated bottles, and our prices will compare with any independent garage- but with the added value of a main dealer stamp, a wash, and a loan car if needed.
Genuine warranties - and genuine aftercare!
We offer warranties with our used cars, that ARE worth the paper they are written on! Unfortunately we cannot cover worn tyres, brakes etc, but if it's broken and it shouldn't be - our warranty will cover it! I promise, and you can ring me, Robin Luscombe, anytime - my number is 07984647938. Who else offers that?
