Ling’s Toyota Aygo environment info change

My system has alerted me that the Toyota Aygo 1.0 VVT-i X 12v (69bhp) (4 seats) Hatchback 5dr 998cc Petrol Manual (5 Speed) Petrol Manual has changed today so I update my website and post here for the benefit of customers. No one else bothers with this stuff. I treat you like adult, not idiot.

This is very difficult for some people to control because of the damn human nature. But try to look at your car as a simple consumer goods, like a fridge or microwave. Who would get excited by a microwave…? Because these cars are so very, very cheap, often dealer makes just a tiny profit. Almost like handling fee. Me too. I work on numbers of cars, like airline ticket consolidators sell tickets.

Environment

If showroom-based car dealers fail to show fuel consumption labels on new cars on display, or to make available to potential buyers the results of the fuel consumption tests as listed in this booklet, it renders them liable on conviction to a fine of up to �5,000. This is why dealers miraculously acheive these “minimum standards” – under threat of a �5,000 fine!

For this brand new Toyota Aygo Petrol Manual, the latest CO2 figure is just 93g/km. When I chose this trim, it was because I have a few of these available. Different trims will have different CO2.

Environment

My Toyota Aygo 1.0 VVT-i X 12v (69bhp) (4 seats) Hatchback 5dr 998cc Petrol Manual (5 Speed) Petrol Manual gearbox is only £116.40 inc VAT per month with 9 months initial payment, followed by 35 payments on direct debit. Business customers, make sure you deduct the VAT, when making decisions. As I can’t tell what type of customer you are (business or private), I can’t display the price any other way but to show VAT seperately (sorry!).

ToyotaThis price on my Toyota Aygo includes full road tax for the length of the contract, on all of my cars and vans! Free delivery to your home or work and free collection from you at the end! £116.40 inc VAT per month is based on you driving 10,000 miles per annum, but higher mileages are usually available at a small extra cost. If you go over the allocated miles, you can pay a small excess mileage charge, usually between 3p and 15p per mile.

Remember I won the best non-franchise environmentalist 2008 in the Automotive Industry Awards. Don’t let these manufacturers fool you; LINGsCARS.com is the ONLY new car supplier to display and promote environmental info for ALL new cars, on the web! I have a Master’s Degree in Environmental Quality from Bournemouth Univeristy in 2000, plus a BSc in Applied Chemistry from Jinan University, Guanzhou in 1997.

Do not compromise safety but be aware that the use of onboard electrical devices increases fuel consumption.

Toyota Aygo

The external noise emitted by passenger cars has been controlled since 1929 when the Motor Cars (Excessive Noise) regulations were introduced. New cars are now required to meet Europe-wide noise limits. These have been progressively reduced from 82 decibels (dB(A)) in 1978 to the current limit of 74 dB(A) established in 1996. This means it would take 7 new vehicles to make the same amount of noise as a vehicle that just meets the pre-1978 limits.

I always ask my customers if they have comments about getting their new car. Really, I am looking for criticisms (so I can improve my service). However, customers like Huw Thomas show that it is hard to generate real criticism. I can only improve if I know if anything is wrong. So, no thanks to Huw Thomas 🙂

Huw says…
carJust like the compare the meercat advert- Simples!! No complaints what so ever. Ling emailed when she said she would, Lingo’d when said, and replied when she said and always in a timely manner. Honda Civic delivered with no problems and exactly as advertised. If only life was this simple and neat and delivered what was promised, then the world would be a far nicer place. Excellent delivery. Thank you.

As you work for an aerospace company, Honda Civic is suitable because it looks like Dan-Dare with that grille and headlamps. So happy about providing a good service, always a pleasure to deal with professional experts like you, Huw 🙂 – Ling

New Oxides of Nitrogen data on my Fiat 500

Look, another CO2 change! The Fiat 500 1.2 Dualogic Pop 8v (69bhp) (4 seats) Hatchback 3dr 1242cc Petrol Automatic (5 Speed) Petrol Automatic has moved slightly in the environment tales again. I post the new info, and publish on my website.

With my deals, you get a brand new car with zero miles on the clock, delivered to your door. The new car is fully taxed and has the full manufacturer’s warranty and AA cover. It has proper New Car Smell; you know this smell? MMMMM!

Carbon Dioxide is the most important of the greenhouse gases which are contributing to Climate Change. Unless action is taken to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, such as Carbon Dioxide, the whole pattern of the World’s weather could change, increasing the frequency and intensity of heatwaves, floods, droughts and storms.

Having got all the info for the Fiat 500 Petrol Automatic, I can publish the new CO2 figure: 105g/km. This will change across the different models of this particular car, they are all a bit different.

Biofuels also offer a way to reduce vehicles’ impacts on climate change. The fuels are not entirely CO2 neutral because of the energy used to grow and process crops, but they can offer substantial CO2 savings over fossil petrol and diesel. Today most biofuels are sold in a blends of up to 5% with fossil petrol and diesel . These are suitable for use in all vehicles. Fuel standards may be extended in the future to allow more than 5% if it is concluded that this is compatible with existing vehicles. Some manufacturers offer ‘flexi-fuel’ vehicles that can run on bioethanol blends up to E85 – a blend of 85% bioethanol and 15% petrol, as well as fossil petrol.

Toxic gases on the VW Tiguan Allspace Estate

I am simply faster than any other car sales website in changing these VW Tiguan Allspace Estate 2.0 TDI SEL 16v (150bhp) (7 seats) Estate 5dr 1968cc Diesel DSG Speed) Diesel Automatic details to reflect the latest info. No one can keep up with me. Often the manufacturer websites are out of date!

As a bonus to add to your lower motoring costs, you will get every subsequent year’s road tax sent to you free of charge, saving you up to £385 per year, or £1,155 on a 3-year contract!

According to Nicholas Stern’s report, 14 per cent of global carbon dioxide emissions come from transport. The SMMT points out that the motor industry recognises it has a key role to play in reducing the impact of its products and production processes and will continue to develop the technologies to deliver more sustainable motoring. New cars, commercial vehicles and buses reflect many of the cleaner technologies coming to market, including biofuel models, hybrids and greener diesel vehicles.

I am pleased to say that the CO2 for the VW Tiguan Allspace Estate Diesel Automatic is now 132g/km. If you chose a different trim level, the CO2 would change, but not by much.

My VW Tiguan Allspace Estate 2.0 TDI SEL 16v (150bhp) (7 seats) Estate 5dr 1968cc Diesel DSG Speed) Diesel Automatic gearbox is only £344.78 inc VAT per month with 6 months initial payment, followed by 35 payments on direct debit.

Because of the need to maintain strict comparability of results achieved by the standard tests they cannot be fully representative of real life driving conditions. Firstly, it is obviously not practicable to test each individual new car; thus only one production car is tested as being representative of the model and may therefore produce a better or worse result than another similar vehicle. Secondly, there are infinite variations in driving styles and in road, car and weather conditions, all of which can have a bearing on the results achieved. For these reasons the fuel consumption achieved on the road will not necessarily be the same as the official test results.

Emission figures on the VW Tiguan Allspace Estate

Don’t spend so much on fuel! If you get a new VW Tiguan Allspace Estate Diesel 2.0 TDI SEL 16v (150bhp) (7 seats) Estate 5dr 1968cc Diesel DSG Speed) Automatic, then you will spend less because the CO2 value has changed. That means more MPG.

These days, in UK identity theft is common (not problem in China; we all look same, heheh), money laundering is common, and so is fraud. To proctect themselves, and you, against these problems the finance companies like lots of ID. There are many protecting regulations. Photographic and signature proving (new driving licence or passport), and address proving (recent 90 day or less old utility bill showing your name and address). A company may want to submit a VAT return (proof of trading) or latest signed accounts, and anyone can supply a current bank statement (you can blot out the figures if you are sensitive).

Environment

My customers have obtained their cars by the lowest polluting method possible – by acquiring them electronically from the internet. No one has had to travel to a showroom (repeatedly) or contributed to car dealers’ massive environmental overheads (heating, lighting, water use, fuel, staffing costs). The cars I supply are often delivered direct from manufacturers’ depots, or where they have been “through” a dealer, they have not required the showroom overhead (these efficiencies have the added benefit of reducing costs!).

The CO2 for this VW Tiguan Allspace Estate Diesel Automatic is better than it was, at just 132g/km. It is a bit different if you look at a slightly different trim level.

Dealers are also required to display a poster � in paper or as an electronic display, in a prominent position, showing the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions for all new passenger car models displayed, or offered for sale through that particular showroom. In addition to the above, the directive also requires manufacturers to include fuel consumption and CO2 emissions data in all brochures and printed advertisements, provided that the literature relates to a specific model of car. These requirements were implemented into UK law by The Passenger Car (Fuel Consumption and CO2 emissions Information) Regulations 2001, which came into force on the 21st of November 2001.

Different NOx levels on the Toyota Aygo

Checking against the values I publish for the Toyota Aygo 1.0 VVT-i X 12v (69bhp) (4 seats) Hatchback 5dr 998cc Petrol Manual (5 Speed) Petrol Manual, I have noticed a small error, so I’m publishing these new figures today. Please read.

Local franchised dealer will sort out any warranty problems for free, but on most contracts (except VW group) any VAT registered garage can service car very cheap. Don’t use manufacturer agents, they are damn expensive. You never have an MOT (except on occasional 3-year contracts), car is always too young.

Toyota Aygo

When I asked Renault UK what they were doing to encourage franchised dealers to go beyond legal-minimum disclosure of environmental data, they simply said; “The majority of Renault dealers are autonomous businesses with a franchise to sell and repair Renault vehicles and as such, the internal running is outside of our jurisdiction. However, we train the dealer network, to ensure that they are aware of the different models and new technologies available. Some Renault dealerships may choose to advertise this information on their websites whereas some Renault dealerships would choose not to.”. Note that this statement is slightly misleading as Renault UK directly owns many of its larger dealerships, and in my extensive research no Renault dealer uses this information online. They could, if they wanted to. Their statement doesn’t seem to me to be very pro-active.

I have taken a typical model of this car from my website – the Toyota Aygo Petrol Manual. For this car, the CO2 is now just 93g/km. Other trim levels might differ slightly.
