    Just imagine you’ve spent weeks, sometimes months, picking your car making sure you can get in and out, your wheelchair fits in the boot, its got all the equipment you need, youve had a decent test drive, you’re due to order TODAY and wham the car comes off the motability list.

    What to do, do you wait and see if it comes back on the list in say 5 minutes, a day, a week?

    You could of course call motability for info, you unlikely to get a straight answer but one thing you can be sure of they are always very polite.

    As some have found even if the car is on the scheme when ordered, there is still a possibility the manufacturer will cancel. Difficult times.

    With hindsight I really wish I had ordered a X1 Xdrive 2.0i back in April to replace my present X1 2.0d.

    Yup, the Juke and Qashqai are gone.

    Seat Leons are still on though, they were “supposed” to go as well, according to another member here.

    Surely there’s still plenty to choose from been as we can only drive one car at a time, sometimes to much choice can be baffling, overwhelming even..

    Should be easier making a choice on limited availability, sort of yeah I’m having that ONE, rather than dithering around for weeks or months..

    That’s very disappointing as we were going to order a Qashqai Tekna + in around 2 weeks when we can order. I have researched it, looked at it, driven it and made sure that the wheelchair can fit in the boot. My wife is very poorly and we plumped to look at it last weekend and we both like it. The thought of going round dealers with her illness is frankly making me sweat. Whats the point of taking it off the scheme one month into the new quarter. It is baffling to say the least, surely it could have waited until the end of this quarter. The car ticked all the boxes, electric passenger seat, lightweight doors and ample bootspace for her wheelchair and for her to comfortably get in/ out of a car in the easiest way possible.

    However, I cannot get hold of the Motabiliy Specialist at our dealer as he is on holiday until mid November and nobody can clarify it but I have noticed that the car is still available on Nissan’s website for Motability.

    Any suggestions would be most welcome or time to consider something else or just keep a hold of our car for longer and see what happens. 🙁

    Whlist I agree that there is still a reasonable choice, the decline in numbers is worrying. Will we see sub 1k soon?

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>Fwippers do you think we were slightly spoilt in a way with the huge selection of cars in the past, and now like everything in life at the moment massive cut backs are just showing up in this subject…</p>
    Maybe it’s just riding out the storm and things will improve..

    I joined at the worst time possible, I think, however at least I have transport to get about now..

    From a Nissan Motability salesman on another website, both the Qashqai and Juke have been removed due to the length of time it would take for delivery (chip shortage/component supply issues etc).

    A decision was made by Nissan and Motability that with waiting times curently extending well in excess of six months, these models would be removed from the scheme until the situation has eased (whenever that may be).

    The models may still be listed on Nissan’s own website as manufacturers and dealerships etc are often not that quick on updating their websites. However, the Motability website is the ‘master list’ of vehicles currently available to order on the scheme (despite it’s searching drawbacks).

    You could look at alternatives such as the Hyundai Tucson etc or extend your current lease for upto 2 years (but you can change vehicles anytime within the lease extension period should your chosen car re-appear to order).
