I have had my car now for 2 weeks and I absolutely love it. Thanks so much to Stacey for finding the right car at the right price and for making the whole process so easy. I can't recommend Stacey highly enough

Jane Gaynor, Suffolk

I've had 20+ years of experience of using Howletts and Howlett Leasing. The personal, family service is second to none and both the offer, pricing and support is excellent. I would never hesitate to recommend Stacey and Howlett Leasing - no matter your vehicle or funding requirements...

Simon Verona, Sheffield

Thanks to Stacey Howlett of Howlett Leasing. I avoided a barrel load of trouble and unnecessary stress as Howletts negotiated the financial pitfalls and organised chaos of the current motor trade. Sit back and let Howlett professionals take the strain. Highly recommended.

Mr Derek McBride from Lavenham

We decided to use Howlett Leasing as I had previously experienced their services whilst at another company. I found them very helpful and their service was excellent. We like to purchase from like minded people.

'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.

Jo Isaac, Halstead

' 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. '

Digital Healthcare have used Howlett Leasing since October 2004. We have always found them to be very competitive on price, friendly and helpful to deal with and excellent at providing the service required in a very short space of time! Having challenged them twice this year I have been extremely pleased with every aspect of the service provided. This being my first experience of arranging new lease vehicles I would recommend Howlett's to anyone.

J Witts, Digital Healthcare, Cambridge

I have been very happy with the way I have been looked after by Howlett Leasing in every respect. They are always courteous, friendly and helpful and I have found them easy to deal with. I would be pleased to recommend their services to anyone.

Mr Chris Crace, Sudbury, Suffolk

'Stacey is brilliant, always comes back to you really quickly, doesn’t promise what she can’t deliver and commend her for that. Just taken out another lease on a new car and changeover seamless and love the new car.'

Carol Schleip, IPSWICH

I have no hesitation in recommending Howlett Leasing who have supplied our vehicles for several years. Every time they have made the whole process straightforward and simple with the minimum of fuss and just the right amount of help and assistance in getting the right vehicle for our work and the right deal for our budget.

Tesla Model 3 saloon

The Tesla Model 3 is the first affordable, mass-produced model in the American manufacturer's all-electric range, offering customers something very different from conventional rivals such as the BMW 3 Series, Audi A4, Jaguar XE and Alfa Romeo Giulia.
The Model 3 has no direct electric rivals for now; it’s more expensive than EVs like the Nissan Leaf and Hyundai Kona Electric but smaller and cheaper than the Jaguar I-Pace. It’s closer to the Jaguar in nature, however, thanks to its minimalist but luxurious high-tech interior, massive desirability and incredible performance. The newest Tesla is a clear evolution from the design of the Model S but with extra emphasis on the amount of interior space that can be gained owing to the absence of a conventional combustion engine.
There are myriad clever features, from the key that's actually your smartphone to a single-slot air-vent that can somehow adjust airflow and direction as if by magic.
Three versions are available initially, starting with the rear-wheel drive Standard Range Plus that's capable of 258 miles from a full charge and 0-60mph in 5.3 seconds. Long Range AWD and Performance versions gain an extra motor and four-wheel drive, giving the Performance almost supernatural acceleration - 0-60mph takes 3.2 seconds. These more expensive versions have 348 and 329 miles of range respectively. The Model 3 Long Range AWD feels addictively fast and relaxing, thanks to near-silence from its electric motors. The car’s handling belies its weight, with excellent grip and minimal body roll in the corners, and on British roads the suspension is comfortable enough to allay our fears that the Model 3 would feel too stiff.
On long trips, the Model 3 can be topped up using Tesla's well established Supercharger network (although you will have to pay) or - for the first time in a Tesla - via any other charging network that's compatible with its CCS charging port. Fast-charging to 80% can take as little as 30 minutes, while a full home charge takes just under 12 hours. While there have been some build quality issues, there are no such worries when it comes to safety. Having crash-tested the Model 3, Euro NCAP awarded it the maximum five-star score, and the car posted the highest-ever score in the safety assist category. The Tesla Model 3 has garnered more attention than any other car in recent history, and it seems the hype was worth it. With an excellent driving range, stunning performance and lots of clever features, the Model 3 is in a prime position to steal customers, and not just from its direct rivals.
