Testimonials

Very good indeed. Stacey is highly knowledgeable on the market, and made it very easy and affordable for me to set up my first lease vehicle. Highly recommended.

Simplex Consulting, Herts

" I needed to Lease a car but was not sure how the process worked. I had a meeting with Stacey at her office and she explained everything I needed to know in plain simple terms. The next day I received my very competitive quote and within a couple of hours my Mazda 6 was ordered and reserved for delivery on the specific day I requested. The speed and ease of service I received from Stacey and Howlett Leasing was professional and easy and I would not hesitate to recommend them to any of my clients and I will defiantly be using them again when my current deal expires. "

Direct Solutions UK, Clacton

"Only popped into Howletts to enquire about how leasing worked and within 18 days I'd got a brand new car delivered to my doorstep without having to barely lift a finger. Would recommend this service for sure."

Paul Ollie Olorenshaw

I am delighted with my new car. Everyone at Howlett Leasing have gone the extra mile to make my experience positive. They are knowledgeable about their subject, efficient in their operations and first class with their customer service.

James Davey, Sales Masters Guild, Suffol

Howlett Leasing supplied me with my work van and the service Stacey gave me out of this world! Not only did she give me the best price out of all the quotes, the service was by far the best! I won't shop around next time and waste my time, I'll go straight to Howlett Leasing!

George Gearing Bury st Edmunds Suffolk

After leasing my first vehicle from Stacey a Ford Transit Custom for work, i was keen to upgrade the family car too. This ticked all the boxes spec wise and power wise, even more impressed with the size of the boot considering its a saloon. Im really happy with the automatic, having never owned one before i was slightly anxious about having an auto but im very happy i made the switch. We took out a 2 year PCH on 8,000 miles per year, which i think will be tight but its reassuring that we can change that if we think we will go over. I look forward to leasing our next vehicle again in 2 years time.

Mr Faiers, Sudbury

"˜From the initial enquiry all the way through to delivery of the vehicle the service, response and attention to detail from Stacey was excellent. I will have no hesitation in using and recommending Howlett Leasing in the future'.

Spraybooth Technology, Sudbury, Suffolk

Howletts were not quite the cheapest deal out there, but the benefit of having a face to deal with, who will almost certainly be there when you next call, rather than a voice on the phone anywhere, is in my view worth a bit extra. They have continued to keep in touch 6 months after I took out my lease and are very keen to make sure I am happy. Will be going back there again next time I lease..

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.
