Welcome to Eco Cars
My name is Jonathan Porterfield and together with my wife Ursula..we run eco cars from our home in Leicestershire. After working at various car dealerships over the years ...I've built up a good relationship with many local and nationwide dealers ...who often contact me ...as main dealers still look at Hybrid/lpg vehicles ..and scratch their heads and not know what they have in front of them !
Working from home means we keep our costs low ..by not having a huge showroom ...but you still have the same consumer rights as when purchasing a vehicle from a franchised dealer.
Keeping You Informed
Since 2004 we have dealt with customers from all corners of the UK ...and the republic of Ireland ....our videos mean that we can give you a virtual tour of every car we have for sale ......we hear of drivers traveling 100s of miles to visit a dealer ...to see the vehicle that was described by the salesman as 'perfect' ...to be far from perfect ...one customer traveled 200 miles to find the dealer closed and the car very very damaged ...he was not pleased !! ..and after visiting our web site ..and watching a video clip ...he arranged a visit ..and he left us with his new car ...."wish i'd come to your web site first " was his parting words!
We are passionate about alternative fueled vehicles ..and we specialize in sourcing them at the lowest possible cost to you ..the customer.
We have always said we must treat customers how we would expect to be treated ....all vehicles will at some point fail ...(and lets be honest ..one day they will be recycled.....crushed ..and hopefully turned into another car !)
If they do break within our warranty period ..then our quick response is what you want to see ...and this is what we do....we want you to be happy that any issue that needs funding will be put right. When you look at our tax disc holder in your car for years to come ...we want you to have good thoughts about eco cars ...not... " I wish i'd gone elsewhere"
Please feel free to talk to us anytime ...no question is to silly ...as after buying a house ...a vehicle purchace is one of the most expensive commitments you'll make ....and you need to be confident your buying the right vehicle ...and from the right dealer !
As petrol and diesel prices continue to rise and greenhouse gases increase, LPG is the most realistic green solution today.

what people are saying
02/05/13 "Jonathan provided an excellent service, quickly locating a hybrid car matching the specification and budget assigned in Oct 2011. All communications, search management and sales process was conducted smoothly and professionally. My questions were answered in a friendly and efficient manner. It was a pleasure to do business with Jonathan, and I would recommend him to any company or individual looking for service or advice in the fast growing area of green and sustainable fleet."
05/02/13 Hi Jonathan ..The Astra keeps on going faithfully, even through the recent snow. I am just passed 196k miles now, and since my last update I have had to replace.......nothing. Still completely reliable even at a temperature of -12C last week. OK the LPG took a while to kick in, but that was to be expected. As you will see from the spreadsheet, the car has now saved me over £8,300 over using petrol, and the figure for the equivalent petrol usage since owning the Astra is truly frightening at £26,680.75 .
