I am amazed the Post Office needs to be privatised, the amount that my customers spend sending me letters about their new cars. Here, Emma explains how they are getting on with their Nissan Qashqai

Emma says…
carLing is a really fun and friendly company. They make leasing a car easy as pie. Very professional when needed. I have had no problems from start to finish. Thank you so much for my lovely new Qashqai. Excellent delivery, the dealer even bought my old car!

Publishing new polluting info for the Citroen C4 Cactus

Updating the Citroen C4 Cactus 1.2 PureTech Flair 12v (110bhp) Hatchback 5dr 1199cc Petrol Manual (6 Speed) Petrol Manual quickly is brilliant because Google loves to use me as the choice for listing these cars.

Environment

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.

Christopher Macgowan, Chief Executive of the SMMT wrote to me and said “Ling, thank you very much for giving us the opportunity at SMMT to look at the impact of the (environmental) label in a different media from the car showroom. We have always been aware that like the “white goods” label on which the car label is based, that its merits extend beyond the car showroom. In addition we know that the earlier in the buying process the purchaser thinks about low CO2 emissions the more consideration it will be given in the buying process. The industry is committed to seeing the environmental credentials of cars being widely publicised and the SMMT will continue to provide leadership in this area; as with all new initiatives in a huge industry like ours, it takes a bit of time to become widespread and universally available but please be in no doubt that the SMMT and I personally are determined to see the widespread use of the new label.”

For this brand new Citroen C4 Cactus Petrol Manual, the latest CO2 figure is just 117g/km. When I chose this trim, it was because I have a few of these available. Different trims will have different CO2.

My Citroen C4 Cactus 1.2 PureTech Flair 12v (110bhp) Hatchback 5dr 1199cc Petrol Manual (6 Speed) Petrol Manual gearbox is only £217.58 inc VAT per month with 3 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!).

CitroenThis price on my Citroen C4 Cactus 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! £217.58 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.

Regular servicing helps keep the engine at best efficiency.

The different fuels have different merits from an environmental perspective. Compared to petrol, diesel vehicles have significantly lower CO2 emissions per kilometre traveled because of the higher efficiency of diesel engines and hence have a lower impact on climate change. Diesel vehicles also emit lower levels of CO and HC than equivalent petrol vehicles. However diesel engines emit greater levels of NOx and Particles than new petrol vehicles. As mentioned earlier, emissions of such pollutants are an air quality issue, particularly in urban areas.

I have updated CO2 for the Hyundai i10

Don’t spend so much on fuel! If you get a new Hyundai i10 Petrol 1.0 T-GDi N Line (100bhp) Hatchback 5dr Petrol Manual Manual, then you will spend less because the CO2 value has changed. That means more MPG.

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!

Martin Callanan (Euro MP for the North East Region) said “Ling and her unique website LINGsCARS.com displays environmental information in a way that leads the UK motor industry. Following my discussions with her about greening the business, Ling has grasped the environmental nettle and is giving UK car buyers comprehensive environmental data on all new cars for sale in the UK to enable them to make an informed choice. LINGsCARS.com gives a fantastic amount of green information on her new cars, which the rest of the UK motor industry would do well to emulate. Using the internet is already the most energy efficient way of researching and buying a new car, so well done Ling for taking the personal responsibility to push this carbon data to the top of her agenda and to push environmental awareness a big step further”

I have taken a typical model of this car from my website – the Hyundai i10 Petrol Manual. For this car, the CO2 is now just g/km. Other trim levels might differ slightly.

Hybrid vehicles combine an internal combustion engine with an electric motor and battery. There are various ways in which hybrid vehicles can operate. For example the electric motor can be used to provide additional power during acceleration and high load conditions. The battery can then be recharged by the internal combustion engine or from energy absorbed during braking, or, in some cases, from an external electrical supply. Hybrid vehicles offer reduced fuel consumption and CO2 with potentially some reduction in emissions of local pollutants.

My Honda Jazz is more economical now?

Checking against the values I publish for the Honda Jazz 1.5 i-MMD Hybrid eCVT SR (109bhp) Hatchback 5dr Petrol/electric Automatic Hybrid Automatic, I have noticed a small error, so I’m publishing these new figures today. Please read.

Most extras fitted onto cars don’t seem to make difference to the resale price in 2-3 years. Metallic paint, leather and aircon actually do, but let’s face it most cars I sell come with aircon and met paint, anyway. So, if you ask for quote to include extras, you can bet life that it will mean you pay the whole cost of the extra thing, divided by the number of rentals.

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!).

For this brand new Honda Jazz Hybrid Automatic, the latest CO2 figure is just g/km. When I chose this trim, it was because I have a few of these available. Different trims will have different CO2.

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 Martin show that it is hard to generate real criticism. I can only improve if I know if anything is wrong. So, no thanks to Martin 🙂

Martin says…
CarGreat service – Ling kept me well updated about progress of my Vauxhall Corsa SRi order and delivery. She even advised me to stay away from “Dog Cock Red”, which was sound advice (ooooops, Ling). Car is a minter, fast as f***! Thanks for a cracking new car buying experience.

Pollution levels on the Citroen C4 Cactus have changed

I am Ling and my Citroen C4 Cactus 1.2 PureTech Flair 12v (110bhp) Hatchback 5dr 1199cc Petrol Manual (6 Speed) Petrol Manual has a new CO2 value today. So I post it here in my blog. I always update very fast. Can anyone name another website that can do this stuff as fast as me?

Citroen C4 Cactus

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.

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.

Working it out from the tables, the CO2 is just g/km for the Hyundai i10 Petrol Manual. There are a few cars in this range, so different specs will give slightly different CO2 values.
