Testimonials

The service Howlett leasing provide is first class being friendly and cost effective. From the outset we were informed of the progress of the order for the Ford Ranger and once delivered the communication continued ensuring we were happy and that everything was correct on the vehicle. We had the top and tow bar fitted before delivery as a special order which again was handled in a professional and efficient manner.

Thanks again for your service the Ranger is fine and having now driven it for some time and had the opportunity to tow with it I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for pick up with a bit more class.

Aspect Commercial Wheels, Cowley

The car is fantastic! Your customer service was excellent from start to finish and everything was made really hassle free and easy. I get regular updates of my payments and information regarding the car. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Howlett Leasing to anyone looking to lease!

Excellent customer service and an excellent car at an excellent price!

Steven Rhodes, Bishops Stortford

I needed a business car urgently so contacted Stacey at Howlett Leasing one afternoon. Within a couple of hours everything had gone through and I was choosing from a range of colours. The car was delivered promptly to my preferred location and is great! A truly First Class service and I would definitely recommend to others.

For over 6 years, we have leased a number of Peugeot hatchbacks through Howlett Leasing. We have always received the very best of personal service and look forward to its continuation in the future.

Very happy with the car I received from Howlett Leasing. Very helpful.

M Burleigh, Cambridge


'From the moment the e-mail arrived, making me aware of the fantastic deal Howlett Leasiing were able to offer, to the moment the car was delivered, the service I have received has been 1st class. Stacey communicated with me all the way, patiently explaining how the lease worked and what was required. All the paperwork was sent through quickly and efficiently, and the whole process could not have been more straightforward. The car was delivered on time, with a full explanation of all the controls and helpful advice for maintenance and eventual return.

I would recommend Howlett Leasing to anyone thinking of leasing a car - the price was also considerably better than the Ford main dealer!'ť

Mr G Austin, Bury St Edmunds

'Having not leased a car before, the process was very new to me but Stacey always took the time to explain how things worked.

'I always felt fully informed from the point of getting a quote to beyond the eventual delivery of my vehicle, meaning everything ran extremely smoothly.

'I would highly recommend Howlett Leasing as not only do they provide a professional service but also a highly personal one too.'

Thank you again for all your help!

Ad Blue

As part of the overall drive to reduce emissions, and to comply with the new Euro 6 emission standards, more and more diesel cars now include SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) technology.

Used in the right way, SCR can help to reduce Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) emissions by as much as 90%, with fuel efficiency also increasing by between 3% and 5%. For the technology to work, vehicles need to be fitted with a special tank for storing a liquid-reductant agent known as AdBlue®. So if your vehicle is fitted with AdBlue® there are a few things you’ll need to know.

What exactly is AdBlue®?

AdBlue® is a mixture of water and urea, which you top up periodically, as you do with fuel. As you drive, AdBlue® flows from the tank into the exhaust pipe via a dedicated catalyst. The effect is a chemical reaction that converts most of the NOx molecules into nitrogen and water. This is then released into the atmosphere as steam.How do I fill up the AdBlue tank? AdBlue® is available from an increasing number of fuel stations and motorway services, but your dealer will also be able to supply AdBlue®. New vehicles tend to have a filling point next to the fuel cap, however it does vary depending on the manufacturer and model so it’s best to refer to the owner’s manual before you start.

How will I know when it’s needed?

It’s important to take action as soon as you see any relevant warning lights on your dashboard. There are three possible warnings:-
First Warning - advises you that the AdBlue® tank is getting low. Second Warning - will give you a mileage range and sometimes is accompanied by an acoustic warning. Final Warning - at this point the vehicle will either go into limp home mode (run at reduced power) or will not restart once the ignition has been switched off.

Many leasing companies consider AdBlue® to be a fuel and therefore the cost of refilling is not covered by maintenance contracts.
