    The new Kuga is apparently a little wider, but lower than the old. The downswept arse end suggests the vertical tailgate opening dimension is reduced, and our hist only just fits in the old Kuga. Rules out the new, but were looking for a change anyway.

    Is this the new shape Kuga, or the old?

    We have a 2019 Vignale.

    Two things:

    Congratulations! Very well done. It took us almost a year to be offered a bungalow with a wet room – my wife is a wheelchair user and I am also disabled.

    The reason I think it’s so wrong is that, at least here in Kent, we have to pay £250 to have the parking bay marked!

    So why the f*** is it allowed for any Blue Badge owner to use it. IMO, if you’ve paid for it, it should be like a permit.

    We had no choice.

    Our disabilities mean we need things like power tailgate, parking camera, all-round parking sensors, power seats etc. That, like it or not, means a hefty AP – it’s gone up signifiantly with each car. See reply footer.

    The automatic seat back when you turn the engine off only takes the seat part of the way back, not to the maximum. I use one of the three memory settings as all the way back and down, as that is more comfortable for me getting in and out.

    On our Kuga they do seat back, height, and move it forwards and backwards too. Also has memory presets, which means I can push a button on the door to make the seat go all the way back, Makes it possible for me to get in and out of the car without pain.

    The rep at the dealer we got our Kuga Vignale fron in the Spring, said they’ve been told it’s definitely coming on. The Kuga has been a good seller on Motability apparently.

    Good luck. I signed an order on 14th December last year, with a written agreement that I would pay the lower amount if the AP went down on Jan 1.

    You could sign on 31st Dec on the condition that, if the AP drops the next day, you pay the lower figure. Dealers seem to allow that from what I’ve seen.

    Good point Markymate. The start/stop will start again if you’ve been stopped for very long with things like the a/c running, heated screens on etc. As you say, to preserve the battery.

    I’m a bit confused about the stop/start issues some are reporting, as I’m finding it works well, whether the a/c is on or off.

    There’s also the fact that austerity was imposed to bail out the bankers and other financial institutions who had been on the fiddle all over the world for many years to the tune of trillions. Biggest benefits payout in history, and nothing much has changed for them.

    Taxpayers money is OUR money FFS!

    Many of us are taxpayers still.

    Many others have been.

    Those who have never been able to work are not ‘lesser’ than taxpayers.

    Also, PIP and other disability benefits are not a handout to scroungers, and I resent the implication on this thread by some that we are – especially if they themselves are disabled. Or that we are supposed to be grateful – bow, grovel, knuckling of forehead – for the charity handout.

    Big Dave is right. My wife has a fairly standard manual chair – Karma Flex. Minimum height needed with a hoist is 82cm. I’ll be surprised if that downward swept arse end has it.

    Shame, as I actually like this new design, and our next change is in 2022.
