Getting letters in the post is really nice. It makes a lovely change from getting email. This one was sent by Mick Griffin from Leicester. Amazingly, the postman didn’t steal it!

Mick says…

Many customer letters contain really funny stuff. It’s unusual to receive a very dry one. However, I publish them all. Here is a letter from Jonathon Malton. It was sent to me quite a while ago!

Jonathon says…
carWords to describe LINGsCARS.com:- Personal, efficient, friendly, professional, fun.

My car/deal- I am delighted with my car and feel that I have got a good value for money deal. Score for LINGsCARS.com = 10/10

Very happy customer! Suggestions for improvement- although the car was delivered with a couple of weeks of signing the docs, things did go a little quiet. Try to keep in touch to reassure that car is coming. Excellent delivery, the delivery driver was very courteous.

Citroen C5Editor Note: Whoa! Looks like I did not communicate well enough on delivery. I take massive note and improve this, Jon. However, checking, between the time you received the documents and delivery, I had 12 messages to you on LINGO, but I admit there were 6 days while we waited for the delivery to take place when you had no updates. So, I have changed procedures and my system will now not let more than 3 days pass without an update. I appreciate that feedback, thanks. So pleased you still give me 10/10!

Apart from this, you are a chai expert with Ringtons, so I had loads of tea advice along the way 🙂 Hope you enjoy the C5 immensely. Super customer, great fun! – Ling

Does your cat eat letters when they come through your letter box? Mine does. Here’s a letter it missed, from Mathew Pitman in Yateley. Bloody cat!

Mathew says…
carGreat woman, fast, friendly and funny! All excellent, a top service will definitely use again. Thank you. Finance company bad. No paperwork sent, direct debit late and cheque took ages to go out of my account.

New cars are like new toys to most of my customers. They get really excited. Just like John Dougall. I delivered this Citroen C4 Picasso to Grangemouth then I got this very nice letter back…

John says…
carI’ve been Linged! That is, carried through a first experience of renting a car of my choice by Ling Valentine, and made to feel a special customer. Wonderful to feel confidence in every part of the transaction from first enquiry until the prompt delivery of the car as requested.

The service from the dealer regarding supply of my Citroen C4 Picasso was fine. They seemed to sit on the paperwork for transferring my cherished plate to the car (it was actually the DVLA – Ling) which delayed my car a bit.

Good delivery. My Citroen is lovely, drives smoothly and will be economical on fuel, tax and insurance.

Citroen C4 PicassoEditor Note: The delay was the DVLA, Jack, not the dealer. However, your C4 Picasso will certainly be economical on road tax as you get that for free! 🙂 You were a superstar customer, and you sent me many videos, from your webcam. At one stage we were chatting via video back and forth, despite you are a bloody “silver” surfer. It was so cool! I’m so pleased you enjoyed the experience, you were lovely to deal with. Thanks. – Ling

The Volkswagen Scirocco is a Green car yet?

Making your car greener is important, so it is nice when you can do it just by looking at the new Volkswagen Scirocco 1.4 TSI BlueMotion Tech 16v (125bhp) GT Coupe 3dr 1395cc Petrol Manual. The CO2 values have changed, making it more attractive.

Environmental

At the end of the contract, the car is collected from you and you have no further obligations. You do not buy the car, nor do you have a “balloon” payment. Simply give it back! Of course, the car should be fair and reasonable condition commensurate with its age and mileage. If it’s not, you’ll be charged for any damage. But to me that’s common sense.

Volkswagen Scirocco

I am determined that LINGsCARS.com will go further than anyone else in this industry to exceed the legal minimum information disclosure that 99% of UK franchised car dealers refuse to go beyond (and hide behind, IMHO). So, I make sure that at-a-glance CO2, fuel economy and the coloured “greeness indicator bars” are displayed clearly on my homepage car listings for easy comparison purposes.

Volkswagen Scirocco

Working it out from the tables, the CO2 is just 125g/km for the Volkswagen Scirocco Petrol Manual. There are a few cars in this range, so different specs will give slightly different CO2 values.

Volkswagen Scirocco

My Volkswagen Scirocco 1.4 TSI BlueMotion Tech 16v (125bhp) GT Coupe 3dr 1395cc Petrol Manual gearbox is only £245.53 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!).

VolkswagenThis price on my Volkswagen Scirocco 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! £245.53 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.

Use air-conditioning sparingly – running air-conditioning continuously will increase fuel consumption significantly.

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.

Possible enviro banding change on the Ford Kuga

Fuel is a fortune these days, so when the Ford Kuga 2.0 TDCi (150bhp) Zetec Nav 4WD Station Wagon 5dr 1997cc Diesel Manual has slightly changed figures, I always blog about it, because my customers say they care.

Ford Kuga

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.

Environment

At the Kyoto Conference on Climate Change in December 1997 all developed countries agreed to legally binding targets to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions in response to warnings over global climate change. Following this the European Commission and the European Automobile Manufacturers Association (ACEA) came to an agreement in July 1998 that committed ACEA to reduce the CO2 emissions from new passenger cars by over 25% to an average CO2 emission figure of 140 g/km by 2008. This is one of the most significant industry agreements on reducing greenhouse gas emissions and it has led to more fuel efficient vehicles being brought to the market. Similar voluntary agreements have now been reached with Japanese and Korean motor manufacturers. I dread to think what the Chinese are doing…

Ford Kuga

Having got all the info for the Ford Kuga Diesel Manual, I can publish the new CO2 figure: 135g/km. This will change across the different models of this particular car, they are all a bit different.

My Ford Kuga 2.0 TDCi (150bhp) Zetec Nav 4WD Station Wagon 5dr 1997cc Diesel Manual gearbox is only £275.63 inc VAT per month with 3 months initial payment, followed by 35 payments on direct debit.

Switch off – sitting stationary is zero miles per gallon, switch off the engine whenever it is safe to do so.

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.
