    And all the Dacia cars are manuals. Odd decision by them for Motability customers.

    Why would anyone use Mobility allowance for a Dacia vehicle, these are budget end remanufactured old designs. For the same AP or less you could get a better mobility car, at the bottom end they are against Honda and Toyota and higher up they are against some very stiff and to add insult they are all manual.

    Unfortunately I do get confused and get things wrong, so I apologise in advance.

    I personally don’t like them. Merely commenting on how odd it is that they are all manual, when many Motability customers need auto.

    Huh, 21 “new” 15 year old Renaults in new frocks, I can buy one of those for 200 quid at the local auction, why would I want to pay between £9,ooo and £11,000 over 3 years instead? Oh and no automatics as well, just shows what the car industry thinks of disabled people!

    I was going to rant on and on but I can’t be bothered any more, just another tick on my list for not renewing next time.

    In 2008 we brought a 6months old Toyota Aygo Platinum in 10 years besides servicing the only extra cost a set disc and pads. It has been trouble free now the daughter is going to have it group 1 insurance and £20 road tax, it now worth only £1000 even though it looks like the day we brought it,like vinalspin why spend  £9000 – 11000 on a recycled Renault.

    Given the effective VAT-free ‘trade’ prices of Dacia’s, I reckon Motability should make a nice profit.

    (That is, if anyone wants one.)

    Tony Dacia  have very poor resale value, there will be no profit.

    Highest Dacia AP £2999.

    For that you can get a Volvo XC40, various Mercedes, BMW’s, VW’s with quite a few for much less.

    Obviously there are other marques, that are the same AP or cheaper, I just mentioned those which are perceived to be premium brands.

    There is also the NCAP safety rating which is as low as 3 stars on some models (last time I looked)

    Basically, don’t buy a Dacia.

    Good point.
    Hence the high AP.

    Mini have updated the prices on mini and countryman (still waiting on clubman) as their trimlines have changed to classic, sport and exclusive.

    Hi Finsoop  by mid January in my personal opinion the numbers will rise to 2200    – 2300 which will be good i expect a number of new cars to the scheme and a number  of old favourites making a reaperance

    What I find interesting the AP of the PHEV has not gone up despite the removal the £2500 grant? are Mini subsidising as Mitsubishi mobility till the end of the year?

    Mini Clubman back on (with new trim lines) as is the Prius plus which is a 7 seat hybrid (not plugin) based on the old Prius and does look dated now but quite good value at £995 for Icon or £1195 AP in Excel.

    The Prius + is a brilliant car, I looked at one a number of times earlier in the year when we thought there was still hope of my daughter regaining her walking ability prior to diagnosis completely ruling it out.

     

    Little small on the back 2 as all 5+2s are but a nice economical estate with occasional seats if you rarely need them.
