I’ve just had the car serviced over 90 miles away from where it came from. No issues at all.
I think this is the year of the Hybrid.
I would advice caution on relying on the pro-rata for the GCB if you have not completed a full 3 year term, I would want Motability to confirm its on the GCB and not in fact on the original AP, in their own statements they make it it very vague, I would want it in email confirmation from them before relying on what could be the word of a newly trained call handler that may have got things muddled.
Is this thread also available in English lol.
you must be able to go the full term as it’s £900 GCB for a full 5 year term so I assume they require you to order a new vehicle within the last 3 months of your lease but depending on Quarter changes there should be no reason why you can’t go go to the last day.
Well done JamesG, great choice and I’m sure your homework and research on vehicles will pay off as it’s a great looking and specced car.January 8, 2020 at 12:42 am in reply to: volvo xc40 / Mitsubishi Outlander 2.4 PHEV looking for spec list #102580

The following is Official literature from Motability to Dealership on Suppling Lightweight manual wheelchairs.
Having listened to feedback, we understand that some Motability Scheme customers need additional mobility help when they reach their destination.
In 2018, we ran a pilot to allow customers to choose a lightweight manual wheelchair in addition to their Scheme car.
We had a great response:
“Anyone who needs a wheelchair, and can get one through MO, should definitely take it up.”
From 1 April 2019, all car Scheme customers will be able to choose a lightweight manual wheelchair, when they lease a new car.
There is a choice of two different lightweight manual wheelchairs which can be ordered in a number of frame sizes and set up as self-propelled or attendant-controlled.
Regardless of which model is most suitable, each wheelchair costs £100. The lightweight wheelchairs collapse into a compact package and should fit comfortably into the boot of most vehicles. However, this may depend on whether any other adaptations are being fitted to the vehicle.
You will receive the current £25 adaptation payment for every lightweight manual wheelchair supplied.
Scheme customers will be able to select one of the following wheelchairs:
VAN OS Excel G-Logic
Karma Ergo Lite 2.
Both wheelchairs can be set up as self-propelled or attendant-controlled and will be covered for maintenance issues throughout the term of the vehicle lease.
How do you arrange a wheelchair for your customer?
You can select a wheelchair for your customer at the time of application, using Online Applications (OLA).
First, the customer must choose the wheelchair and setup that best suits their needs.
You can then add the wheelchair as an adaptation in OLA.
Adding the wheelchair as an adaptation
Add a lightweight manual wheelchair to an application in the same way as other adaptations:
In the ‘Adaptations’ screen, add a new adaptation.
Select ‘Lightweight Manual Wheelchair’ from the ‘Group’ dropdown list.
Choose the type of wheelchair in the ‘Adaptation’ dropdown.
In the ‘Installer’ dropdown, you’ll see a list of LMW suppliers ordered by distance. Choose a supplier (this will be a PWSS dealer).
Make sure that you note down the name of the supplier – you’ll need to contact them to arrange delivery of the wheelchair.
Ignore the familiarisation text at the bottom of the screen – this relates to any other adaptations that the customer has requested for the vehicle.
LMW Screen 3
What happens next?
Once you have submitted the application – and it has passed to the ‘pending’ state – the PWSS dealer you selected will receive a notification including:
The customer’s details.
Your dealership details.
The vehicle details.
The model of the wheelchair needed.
The type of setup: self-propelled or attendant-controlled.
The anticipated handover date.
They will contact the customer to ensure that the choice of wheelchair is suitable for their needs.
The PWSS dealer will then source the wheelchair.
Contact your chosen LMW supplier – you can find contact details for LMW suppliers on the Dealer Resource Centre, or using the Find a Dealer tool on the customer website.
Arrange a delivery date – make sure that the wheelchair is delivered to your dealership in the seven days running up to the Confirmed Delivery Date (CDD).
Keep the LMW supplier up-to-date – you must contact the PWSS dealer if there are any changes to the anticipated handover date and when the confirmed delivery date is agreed.
If you have not heard from the PWSS dealer by 14 days from the CDD, contact them to confirm the delivery of the wheelchair.
You need to take payment from the customer ahead of the handover date. You will hand over the wheelchair at the same time as the vehicle.
What happens at the End of Contract?
The customer will need to return the wheelchair at the End of Contract event.
We do not require the wheelchair to be returned to Motability Operations. Please dispose of it as you would with other adaptations that are no longer needed. If the wheelchair is in good condition, you could retain it for demonstration purposes.
What if the wheelchair needs maintenance or repair?
If a LMW requires maintenance or repair, ask the customer to contact our Customer Services which will arrange for the work to be completed.
No private/business lease or purchase no matter how good can compete with Motability for Peace of Mind, and for many that’s a comprise not worth sacrificing for a few pound or just to be able to say It’s Mine. The Best option is what suits the Individual.
As with most Quarters I would wait for the dust to settle, we will see a lot of changes in the next week or so. And thanks to JamesG Thread we will be better informed as to those changes.
The tiguan has certainly grown on me over the last couple of years, at first I dismissed them because like others it’s styling didn’t appeal, again each to their own but through this Forum and the value for money with deals available I will certainly be test driving in a year’s time.
the forum is primarily all things motability connected, we have the off topic section for less or none related issues, many people are very protective of the situation they find themselves in due to various reasons, as a forum we ask that all users renain respectful of others, I suggest people read their posts before posting and think how that may impact on others, no one should to be made uncomfortable by others comments. Let’s have a good year in difficult circumstances please everyone
Perhaps my TV will now allow it, good work WMC.
Point him in the direction of Motability and hopefully they will suggest retraining also. But if it’s normal metallic then there is no charge.
At this rate there wont be many we are waiting for lol.
Sounds like you got a nice xmas present SimonDecember 23, 2019 at 1:45 pm in reply to: Who are the people posting on the home page rather than the forum? #101140
Just to reassure users wary of signing in, WMC does not give access or sale any information to third party users/organisations.
The manufacturers make a car available to Motability but if the discount they offer is not good enough when motability applies its method of working out AP etc then the vehicle may not come on as the AP would exceed the ceiling allowed etc.December 23, 2019 at 12:34 am in reply to: Who are the people posting on the home page rather than the forum? #101095
I’ve got a Disqus account that I use on sites where I may have some interest but not enough interest to become a full member of a forum. Basically it just enables me to put my two pennies worth of comment in with the site owner able to trace me should I was to say something inflammatory, unlawful or insulting.
chris that’s not totally accurate the disqus site has its sign in and although at presesent we don’t have a compulsory sign in things are still traceable, people believe by using a VTN/proxy etc then it’s not, unfortunately that’s not true and a pattern still shows. Our security filter works in the back ground and picks up multiple issues including multiple users, Spam, porn, threats etc. At present and maybe I shouldn’t divulge this as I don’t have permission from WMC and it’s only admin that has access to it but note the “hidden”in the following paste, (taken from my screen) and the 306 figure is only recent since the last tidy up from WMC.
This forum contains 3,563 topics (+ 306 hidden) and 44,724 replies, and was last updated by John Smith 3 hours, 50 minutes ago.
Most of those are Spam and sites that we wouldn’t want on our Forum and the filter deletes them automatically and flags others for approval, we also know and can check if someone was to post as for example as Chris but also post as Bob, David ,Gorden etc it still shows irrelevant of if they use Opera Mini or any other provider to hide the true identity, it’s a shame people feel the need to do it and not be themselves, but we are not here to judge just help.
Disqus (used by the home page) is separate from the Forum system but similar , Disqus is used by many users and business users alike, ive myself posted on it and have an account for business use,but it can cause conflict if you have an account or try using other forums using the same system as it recognises an IP address and even a device, I only realised this when I first joined used the forum and depending on which device I used it signed me in automatically.
No! I’m Justsaying lol, don’t get me in trouble Winston, ha haDecember 22, 2019 at 3:34 pm in reply to: Should Motability force manufacturers to discount packs for its customers? #101044
Lol I checked the posts over and over and for the life of me couldn’t find it until I noticed the title, sorted.December 22, 2019 at 2:34 pm in reply to: Should Motability force manufacturers to discount packs for its customers? #101037
Maybe the Grant system should pay the difference for the next vehicle up if the upgrade is a requirement due to disability and not simply choice.
I concur and To use WMC words from the homepage which sums it up brilliantly.
This Forum is full of good hearted souls willing to share their experience of the Motability Scheme.
There are no silly questions, only the ones you don’t ask. Information is the most powerful tool you have in choosing the right Motability Vehicle.
Hyundai has made the Kona electric available to motability since it’ induction but I assume with manufacturers not needing to heavily discount Electric and Hybrid due to popularity the figures don’t work out. Let’s hope Motability makes some consesions come Q1
