The problem is that even with euro 6 emmissions diesel cars and other vehicles still produce harmful cancer and breathing problems and this has now led to car manufacturers dropping diesil engine cars as nobody wants to buy them now and dealers and motability and personnal buyers will lose a lot of money on these cars you may not like what im saying but thats how it is.
Diesel cars are going to become less and less as the problem with particulates which have been found to be hazardous to health so you guys should no longer even consider them they will affect you and your family as well with smaller petrol engines being introduced with turbos.
Yes mike i think that was the fabia rally car colour green with white roof.
Hi i know disabled gov help has come a long way since the early days in the 60s and 70s but remember all disabled had then was no choice at all only as i said on another post the 3 wheel plastic pig.I have noted on the abarth post that wav drive from you no longer get any help on massive ap unless you work for 16 hours a week or do voluntary work for 16 hrs a week and many have been forced after there five years are up to hand back there cars and are left housebound which is not helpful.
I think motability will not as yet restore the abarth turismo or the 180bhp due to insurance cost they told me.But i think the 595 145bhp will still be available.I see the seat leon fr semi hot hatch is available and the 150ps dsg petrol is a great car.
Hi i have an abarth 595 145bhp mta and its the best car i have had on the scheme, its quick enough in auto sport mode and with manual mode which you use the steering paddle shifters.I had mine in podium blue a real eye catcher i had a skoda fabia estate vrs before dsg and this little tearaway is far better can even get a small fold up scooter in the boot with seats folded and a small boot hoist although a bit tight.On the motability does not like sporty cars i have never heard this even the mazda mx5 used to be on the scheme and way back when mg rover was british owned the mg tf autumatic was available.I am annoyed by mainly the right wing press as to the goc giving us free new cars which we know is a total lie is that why even a wheelchair wav drive from is no longer available for a grant only if you can work for 16 hours a week or do voluntary work.
On a seperate matter the old smart for two all models used to be on the scheme including the brabus which i think had a large ap but the new renault engine smart only the 70bhp has been available since its launch, the 89bhp automatic and brabus has never been put back on the scheme meaning again less choice.And again i remember when you could also buy a new or used car on motability hire purchase and that also ceased to exist and the good thing if you did want to use hp there was no credit checks.So im not moaning as i myself am happy with the tiny tearaway but in the future may need more choice as i do not want a derv only petrol due to short journeys.I do remember the old 60s and 70s three wheeled fibre glass invilid car and we have really come a long way since them times but as said some able bodied seemed to be very jealous due to right wing media that we get anything.
I would gladly give up motabilty cars but not be disabled as i worked since i left school at 15 and paid my taxes for over 40 years until becoming disabled.
