    I’m going to guess that it’s because manufacturers production periods don’t line up with the dates Motability publishes new offers.

    They can say how many are available, that’s not beyond someone clicking a mouses. They could have a cut off number of available cars before they come on a scheme, again not beyond the wit of man or woman. Is there another market as big as motability, involving such expensive purchases where the object of the purchase is available on Monday, gone on Tuesday and back on Wednesday. It’s utter contempt for all those motorists who have to make judgements for the next few years based on the lottery of availability. The way APs fluctuate is a joke too. Accepting shoddy, second class service isn’t the way forward. WTF are motability doing?

    Car Manufacturers changing models at moment regulary due to shortage of semiconductors , sun roofs etc,change the spec or none made,and you will not get a vehicle at all,not motability they have to remove and put back on again for correct information, if you dont like motability then buy your own, be thankful for what you have got sif,years ago it would have been a three wheeler with one seat.

    You may not have noticed but my point has nothing to do with a world wide semi conductor shortage, or are you seriously suggesting that was the cause of the Kia Souls bizarre Monday on the scheme, removal on Tuesday and reinstatement on Wednesday. This problem has been happening a long time.  Instead of a kneejerk reaction to show how well read you are complete with lots of exclamation marks and question marks, try reading someone else’s post, it helps. My post was not about reductions of numbers it was about cars coming and going on a daily basis. That has caused, if you care to read other people’s posts, anxiety and confusion. That’s my point, not anything to do with semiconductor shortages.

    If the car has a slight change they have to do this,you seem to think they know how many in stock,motabilty have none,dealers have non ,factory orders that is , if you order you will get plus any extras you need,so it is removed to avoid a vehicle you cannot get on a daily basis caused by the manufacturers issues.

    No manufacturing issues with the Kia Soul already at dealers, stock already with dealers, I checked, and dealers knew exactly how many were in stock, not factory orders and no change over the three days. So why did it come and go? I checked exactly how many were in stock, it’s nothing whatsoever to do with manufacturing delays. It is what it is.

    It could have been something as simple as a database error, the system is far from without faults, there remains 3 VW Transporter Shuttles that only show up on the front page search and not the advanced search, we have told Motability on numerous occasions but it persists.

    Obviously the Citroen C3 Aircross current model stock has run out. Dealers are hoping to start receiving the new ones to showrooms in June.

    Peugeot -19 (petrol)

    3008 -10  1.2 petrol removed

    5008 -9 1.2 petrol removed

    Peugeot reduced the price for Q2 of the 1.2 petrol by £450 and the £5008 by £700, they were among the standout offers on the scheme, orders were flying in, particularly for the the 5008. Bad news for a lot of people.

    Wonder is it like back in early 2010 Q1 CItroën was so overwhelmed with C4 Picasso and Grand C4 Picasso orders due to such crazy low APs for both Civilian and War Pension which my brother had a C4 Picasso 2.0HDi 138 EGS6 VTR+ for Nil on WP it was only £545 for DLA well they got taken off come March. They was put back on in April Q2 the prices shot up for both WP and Civilian DLA.

    The diesel’s are still available and in Allure Premium spec is £200 more compared to petrol. Still good value imo. I did have a hard time deciding which way to go but we only average 5k a year and only have a fully loaded car for hols so went petrol. Are they struggling with demand purely on the engine front i wonder?

    The Peugeot 3008 and 5008 models have been removed due entirely to the semi conductor chip shortage at the French factory in Sochaux that they’re made at…
