hi. im looking for recommendations for a car (or any vehicle) that might accommodate me and some advice if possible. i am 5″11 and weigh in the region of 33 stone. the main issue im having is that my belly is getting in the way of the steering wheel and if i pull the seat back, i cant seem to reach the pedals. i have tried different positions in various cars including a nissan qashqai, landrover discovery, vw tiguan, renault megane and a ford fiesta all with the same issue. ideally i’d like a car where the seating is low and the steering wheel is high. ive considered buying a van because of this reason but i would prefer a car. i am in reciept of esa and pip for mental health issues and dont qualify for the mobility scheme but i have been advised that i might need pedal extensions. can anyone point me in the right direction or where to go from here? whether it be a a suitable car or someone to contact regarding car adaptions in the south yorkshire area. i need to get on the road asap so i can go pick my daughter up on a regular basis. she ives 30m miles away. thank you
