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

Claire says…
carCar took a long long time to arrive, but I was very pleased with it when it eventually arrived! Very impressed with communication from Ling and her team throughout. They kept me informed of progress and always answered my questions very quickly. Will use again! Thanks. Good delivery, my Fiesta arrived safe and sound.

Ford FiestaEditor Note: Claire, well, massive backlogs at the Ford factories at the time you got your car. It did take a long time to be built, sorry about that. But good things come, in the end 🙂 These Titanium Fiestas are just great! Glad you liked the LINGO. – Ling

Change on the VW Polo

Checking against the values I publish for the VW Polo 1.0 TSI SE 12v (95bhp) Hatchback 5dr 999cc Petrol Manual (5 Speed) Petrol Manual, I have noticed a small error, so I’m publishing these new figures today. Please read.

How to explain this without it seeming like the usual sales talk? … I don’t know, but I will try to make this clear… You know, you are not buying this car. Only renting it for (probably 1 or 2 or 3 years). So you are not stuck with it forever. So, you have no real risk. You are going to pay someone some money to run a car however you look at it.

My customers drive brand-new cars. These cars are far less polluting than cars built just a few years ago. As an extreme example, it would take 50 new cars to produce the same emissions per kilometre as a vehicle made in 1970. The new cars my customers are driving have been produced on the most modern production lines, using the latest technology with much lower environmental build costs than cars produced in the past. By their nature, these new cars will be emitting the lowest levels of pollutants than they will ever produce in their lifetimes, as they get older.

Having got all the info for the VW Polo Petrol Manual, I can publish the new CO2 figure: 101g/km. This will change across the different models of this particular car, they are all a bit different.

My VW Polo 1.0 TSI SE 12v (95bhp) Hatchback 5dr 999cc Petrol Manual (5 Speed) Petrol Manual gearbox is only £209.20 inc VAT per month with 6 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!).

VWThis price on my VW Polo 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! £209.20 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.

Environment

Winning the environmental award (2008 Best Environmentalist in the car industry) was very pleasing for me as it meant I was being recognised for my hard work. I’m the the ONLY new car supplier to display and promote environmental info for ALL new cars, on the web! Please note I have pioneered availability of environmental information on the internet. Using the internet to research and buy new cars is the most environmentally friendly method, by miles.

Check your fuel consumption – it will help you get the most from the car, changes in overall fuel consumption may indicate a fault.

I have so many of these website comments, they are overflowing on my desk!

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.

Hydrocarbon results for the BMW 4 Series Coupe have changed

CO2 affects fuel consumption directly. Less CO2 means less fuel burnt. So, I’m reporting this change on the BMW 4 Series Coupe Petrol Automatic. Have a look at the new figures.

Sometimes you must resign yourself to fact that dealer will look after a retail customer first. Your delivery might be slightly delayed because they are fussing over a damn retail customer (paying �1000’s more than you), and you have to learn to relax. Most times these delays never happen, but sometimes they do, so I’m just preparing your brain and giving you tip.

My customers agree to adhere to a fixed mileage allowance (usually 10,000, 15,000 or 20,000 miles per annum) and they are charged for “excess” miles. This means they are far more aware of the costs involved in unneccessary journeys in their new cars. To a certain extent, my customers will consider “is my journey really neccessary?” and “would it be cheaper to do this long trip on the train?”.

Environment

Working it out from the tables, the CO2 is just 134g/km for the BMW 4 Series Coupe Petrol Automatic. There are a few cars in this range, so different specs will give slightly different CO2 values.

My BMW 4 Series Coupe 2.0 420i M Sport (Professional Media) 16v (184bhp) (4 seats) Coupe 2dr 1998cc Petrol Automatic (8 Speed) Petrol Automatic gearbox is only £314.38 inc VAT per month with 6 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!).

In 1993 exhaust emission limits, (generally referred to as the Euro 1 standards) were introduced for new cars which resulted in the adoption of advanced emission control techniques, e.g. catalysts. More stringent emission limits came into effect in 1997 (Euro 2) and 2001 (Euro 3) and 1st January 2005 (Euro 4). Euro 4 came fully into force on 1st January 2007 and now covers most new cars on sale.

Change on the Mercedes A Class

Everyone moans that things go up and up and up. Well, the CO2 on the Mercedes A Class 1.3 A200 AMG Line 16v (163bhp) Hatchback 5dr 1332cc Petrol Automatic (7 Speed) Petrol Automatic has just come down! What a result! This post is to let you know.

Environment

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).

My customers drive brand-new cars. These cars are far less polluting than cars built just a few years ago. As an extreme example, it would take 50 new cars to produce the same emissions per kilometre as a vehicle made in 1970.

By their nature, these new cars will be emitting the lowest levels of pollutants than they will ever produce in their lifetimes, as they get older.

For this brand new Mercedes A Class Petrol Automatic, the latest CO2 figure is just 123g/km. When I chose this trim, it was because I have a few of these available. Different trims will have different CO2.

My Mercedes A Class 1.3 A200 AMG Line 16v (163bhp) Hatchback 5dr 1332cc Petrol Automatic (7 Speed) Petrol Automatic gearbox is only £282.49 inc VAT per month with 6 months initial payment, followed by 35 payments on direct debit.

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 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 Christine 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 Christine Martin 🙂

Christine says…
carI found dealing with Ling and co fun! Service was first class. Any query I had was answered very quickly. The whole thing took 1 month from enquiry to receiving Qashqai. Car is fantastic. Would definitely recommend Ling!

New Oxides of Nitrogen data on my Honda Jazz

The Honda Jazz 1.3 i-VTEC S 16v (102bhp) Hatchback 5dr 1318cc Petrol Manual (6 Speed) Petrol Manual has new environmental information today. I have updated! Pay attention, you are too slow 🙂

Carbon dioxide is a colorless gas which, when inhaled at high concentrations (a dangerous activity because of the associated asphyxiation risk), produces a sour taste in the mouth and a stinging sensation in the nose and throat. These effects result from the gas dissolving in the mucous membranes and saliva, forming a weak solution of carbonic acid. You may notice this sensation if you attempt to stifle a burp after drinking a carbonated drink. Burp! Ooooops!

Environmental Data

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.

Ford FiestaEditor Note: David, when you compare prices, remember that many companies have hidden fees and “document” charges. I avoid these whenever possible. So, the screen price on competitor sites does not always reflect what you will pay. In fact, most competitor car leasing websites are illegal in the way they represent VAT.

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.
