We needed a new family car quickly! Knowing we would need a new one in 2 years time we decided to lease one! First Vehicle finance was recommended to us by a friend and the recommendation was spot on! What amazing service and we got our new Audi Q5 at an even higher spec than we expected! Awesome !
First Vehicle Finance Ltd and Richard couldn't have been more helpful. My wife had a very specific car in mind and a set monthly budget and Richard took a great deal of time in helping to explain all of the finance options, helping every step of the way in making sure we got our perfect car and under budget! The process was made very easy and the service was fantastic to the extent that I am now looking to finance a car for myself with First Vehicle! Highly recommend!
Hi Will I am currently out the country working, I have been in regular contact with my wife she told me that the transfer of the vehicles went down without a hitch, unfortunately I was in Iraq when this all happened so as yet I have not seen the car in the flesh, but I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your help from start to finish of the process, I had a good experience the first time I dealt with you and have had another flawless experience this time and I look forward to dealing with you again in another 3 years thanks agaim Will.
I first engaged with Chris Fairchild back in 2014 and have found him to be of great assistance, honourable and a thoroughly good person to deal with. My last 2 cars have been via Chris and I am sure many more will follow. It is with great delight I endorse his work and cannot recommend him highly enough.
FVF have been suppyling our vehicles for the last 9 years. They make everything seem so easy and straight forward. They even brought a car to us to test drive when all the local dealers did not have the car we were looking for. The team are so helpful and friendly.
I recommended FVF to a family member and a neighbour from which both have said how pleased they were with the service they received. If you are looking for a small hatchback or a prestige car the service is all the same which is first class. We look forward to dealing with Chris and the team for many years to come.
I am would just like to say thank you to First Vehicle Finance for organising my new car that arrived this week.
This is now the second car I have had from you and on both occasions, I found Will and Rob to be professional and efficient in the way that they dealt with my order.
I will continue to recommend your service to my friends, family and colleagues in the future.
I Received my Volvo V40 R Design today and could not be happier. The car has more than met my expectations, but just as important the service from you has been impeccable throughout. From the initial very competitive quote, all the way through to the delivery today was a pleasure that I could not fault in any way. Keep up the exceptional work, Thanks a lot.
I am a company car user and have 2 cars with First Finance and regularly speak to Richard Mayle and Juliet via email,in the last few weeks I purchased a car for my wife, very happy with the car everything from start to finish happened so easily and efficiently. Fantastic service.
I would like to thank Chris Fairchild and Juliet Whitmore for their efficient and friendly service. Their experience and care showed, I now drive the car I wanted, within the budget I had in mind and am glad to say the whole process was painless. Many thanks and all the best! Will definitely recommend.
First class service received from David and the Team at First Vehicle Finance. You have made the process of arranging our lease plan so straight forward and easy to understand. Thank you so much for all your help. We are delighted with our new car. Kind Regards Dermot Kavanagh
Self-Drive Cars / Driverless cars
You will be relieved to know that it was decided by world leaders and other greater powers that as of 2017 all vehicles on public roads require a human to be seated behind the steering wheel. That puts me at ease, at least 2017 will not be the year of the robot takeover. The human race will live to see another day. But seriously, self-driving cars, is that really a thing? Let’s look at what cars can already do:
* Satellite Navigation systems - need to get somewhere but don’t want to pull out that foldable road map. Simply search your location and the satellite navigation system will direct.
* Park assist sensors - this tells your car to make that annoying beeping sound when you are getting a little too close to the object behind or in front of you
* Forward collision warning - a system that tells your car to beep or warn you of any obstacles in front of you so that you can veer left or right or suddenly brake
* Self-parking function - yes, that’s right, you press a button and the car manoeuvres itself into the designated parking bay – for some of us who cannot parallel park or new drivers this comes as a huge relief.
Suddenly, the concept of a car being able to navigate itself on a straight road is not that outrageous. If you were a kid in the 80s you may even remember KITT from Knight Rider.
I for one, would love a car that can find me in a park, house or in shopping complex car park after a long day of retail therapy. Imagine walking out of the shopping complex, the glass doors slide open, you swipe your phone to unlock, tap-tap on this app, tap-tap here and presto. Your car instantly roars to life and using its on-board computer and thousands of sensors and navigation system, rolls up to greet you a few moments later.
The driver’s door swings open, the trunk pops up and you are so grateful, because to be honest, you actually forgot where you parked and the last thing you wanted to do was lug around all the shopping bags trying to press the car remote to see where the flashing lights are, while trying to convince your toddler that they are fully capable of walking and the floor is not hot lava and no their legs are not broken.
There are a number of manufacturers already burning the midnight oil in the race to be the first to present the world with a fully functional self-driving (autonomous) car. There are factories with hundreds of people tapping away at their computers, furiously typing up codes and probably hacking their competitor sites to try gain valuable intel.
Testing driverless cars in 2017 is already underway and experts predict that these driverless cars will hit the roads in the next 5 years – that means by 2022 we might be able to just sit back and relax while our auto pilot shuttles us around.
There are some serious contenders, Apple, Samsung, Google, Tesla, Nissan, Audi, Mercedes Benz, Ford, just to name a few are all in the race to reveal the first consumer driverless car. The 20th century had the Space Race, well people of the 21st century… I give you the Driverless Car Race.
