Technical Details Explained

We like to think that we are clear on the way we explain our process here at Short Term Leasing, however vehicles are a different kettle of fish! We have Auto, Semi Auto’s, Tiptronic, Manual gearboxes just in transmissions, S Line, Sport, SE and Base Versions of cars. Whilst we give you a run down of what is available on most of our car models, its important that you understand what each section of a vehicle means.We have created this quick guide for you, so that you can an understanding of all the features and fittings of the vehicles. If you think we have missed one, let us know by using the form at the bottom of the page.

Explanations

AdBlue: Adblue is used in many modern vehicles to reduce NOx from your Diesel Car or Van. AdBlue is very easy to use and is classed as a harmless substance, generally you top AdBlue up in a dedicated tank. Please note that AdBlue is classed as consumable.

Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF): DPF’s have been fitted to most diesel vehicles to help meet strict European Emmissions standards, for them to work efficiently the vehicle needs to drive at a steady speed for at least 15-20 mins, to allow the filter to heat up enough to regenerate.

Derivative: Manufacturers create so many different models of their vehicles, from the very basic to the fully kitted out models that include just about everything. The specification can change on a monthly basis of these models, which can make this website difficult to keep up to date and the models that we have on order may differ from those advertised on the manufacturers website.

Body Type: There are various different body types, we generally have a set list we use to describe these vehicles; Hatchback, Estate, Saloon, 4×4, LCV, Coupe, Cabriolet/Convertible, although a few more may slip through from time to time. If in doubt call the Short Term Car Leasing team.

Transmission: Generally we only publish two types of transmission on our website, which is Automatic and Manual, although their are various different types of automatic transmission such as TipTronic, CVT and DSG, its easier to keep to what everybody understands.

CO2 Emissions: This is the carbon dioxide emissions that are emitted from your car’s exhaust system. The figure we state has been provided by the manufacturers feed. This may differ depending on the cars specification. Please confrim with the salesperson to find out the correct CO2 emissions for the vehicle you are going to be ordering.

MPG (Miles per Gallon): The figure displayed shows the manufacturers combined fuel figure in miles per gallon (mpg). The combined figure is for the urban and extra-urban cycle together and may not represent real world driving conditions.

Fuel Type: In recent years, just Petrol and Diesel were available, now we have electric cars, hybrid cars and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles coming into the mix. At the moment if the vehicle is a Hybrid we will just state Hybrid in the fuel type, we may however change this in the future.

Maintenance: If Maintenance is included within the price, then you will be covered for all servicing costs during the duration of the contract. The maintenance programme does not cover accidental damage, vehicle misuse or warranty issues.

Tyres: If Tyre cover is included within the price, then all naturally worn car tyres are replaced under this agreement. This does not cover punctures or accidental damage to the tyres. Should the tyre be replaced due to this, then this will be charged accordingly.
