I've been happy with the service from Howlett Leasing, I now have 2 vehicles from them and would use their services again in the future.

'Stacey at Howlett Leasing offered fantastic service when I was looking to get a new car. I have never leased a car before so had many questions, which Stacey was able to answer swiftly and efficiently. I had a couple of queries regarding items that came as standard with the car and again Stacey was able to answer all the questions very quickly. The whole process was dealt with via email and I didn't even need to attend the office. The additional bonus was that the car was delivered right to my front door at a time and date that suited me. The whole process was easy and effortless and I would recommend Stacey to friends and family that are thinking of leasing a car. I would also use Stacey at Howlett leasing again should we need to lease more cars in the future.'
Thanks again - I love my car.

Stacey at Howlett Leasing arranged for me to have my new car delivered and the old collected. Everything went very smoothly and because she knew my preference, came up with a very good deal and provided me with several options. Always patient whenever I rang to change my mind or go back to the beginning again. Thank you Stacey'ť.

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.

I lease a car every three years and I had six months left on my existing contract. I found that with my increase in work I needed to change it for a slightly bigger one to carry more equipment. (I'm a mobile hairdresser and beautician.) I was not impressed that they wouldn't swap a bigger car from the one I was using, increase my monthly payments and continue with the contract. I had to cease my contract with them and incur a hefty charge. Luckily Stacey was recommended to me by a mutual friend. She showed me better options on leasing a car to suit my life style, and not only that, offered me choices of different contracts that I could choose from which worked better for me. I was very impressed with Stacey as she was so helpful and very efficient in finding me my perfect car, which is bigger, lovely looking and enjoyable to drive!! I cannot thank her enough!!

I called Stacey and advised her of the type of car I was looking for. Within 24 hours I had a list of options and prices ( all very good). From this I picked the car I required and completed the proposal online. The process was easy and Stacey kept me in the loop through the whole procedure.
The car was ready 4 weeks earlier than the dealer had stated and delivered without any trouble. Howlett leasing provides a great service with very reasonable rates. Thanks very much for arranging my beautiful new car!

I received great service from Stacey at Howlett's. I had never leased a car before and found Stacey to be very helpful and I didn't feel that any of my questions would be considered to be silly! I would definitely recommend to friends and family and will be returning when my lease has ended to find another great deal! Thank you.

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 AdBlueÂ®. So if your vehicle is fitted with AdBlueÂ® there are a few things youâ€™ll need to know.
What exactly is AdBlueÂ®?
AdBlueÂ® is a mixture of water and urea, which you top up periodically, as you do with fuel. As you drive, AdBlueÂ® 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? AdBlueÂ® is available from an increasing number of fuel stations and motorway services, but your dealer will also be able to supply AdBlueÂ®. New vehicles tend to have a filling point next to the fuel cap, however it does vary depending on the manufacturer and model so itâ€™s best to refer to the ownerâ€™s manual before you start.
How will I know when itâ€™s needed?
Itâ€™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 AdBlueÂ® 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 AdBlueÂ® to be a fuel and therefore the cost of refilling is not covered by maintenance contracts.
