    I think what is happening at the moment isn’t good news for the disabled customer. Manufactures are building chassis that are shared with other manufacturers to keep costs down thus this limits what they can actually do with a car. I feel, particularly in the SUV category that the midstream brands are all beginning to look a lot similar…would it be fair to say that models which do tick more boxes for the disabled customer are now simply outpriced from being on the scheme?

    To again cut costs, as you have pointed out, the option choice has been reduced – the trim levels the disabled customer requires is again outpriced on the scheme for some cars.

    The car manufacturing process is evolving, and motability isn’t adapting which enough to this, something that was citied as being the reason for such large cash reserves… To ensure the scheme kept up with changes.

    Could any mods tell me why this great big smiley icon appears when I reply to Bionic Rustys post please?

    o

    hi Joss, in Rusty’s original post he put a normal smiley, but it seems when quoted it comes out very large lol.

    for now I’ve just removed it, but I’m sure @wmcforum wouldn’t mind looking in to it.

    Cheers guys,

    Yes Brydo, same time last year – Thursday is our 13th Wedding Anniversary which we’ll spend on a day trip to Gibraltar where the late mother in-law came from. Mrs Trev has never been, so is something quite extra special for her.

    Hope that happens down here tonight Brydo, forecast is thunderstorms and heavy rain, yet we’re leaving at 2.30 in the morning!

    Just put the suitcases in the car, and the car decided to play up – beeping and flashing lights, etc… took me over an hour to work out i was simply confusing it, forgetting i had put the spare key in one of the suitcases! I was locking the car, but it was reminding me i had a set of keys inside lol

    Beat me to it JS, Compass was popular topic of debate on here being it was on the scheme, before being in the showrooms.

    You might find this thread of interest Shawn, if the electric MG did appear you might pick up some tips.

    jennitots, as Pops said your local Kwikfit will sort with no excess of anything to pay, it won’t effect you lease in any way. Plus the Good Condition Bonus for a 3 year lease is now £500… Happy days.

    Lovely part of the country fwipperie, such a nice town – used to to stop off in Lyndhurst on the way to look at the Maserati’s.

    Cheers Pops, we have to leave at 2.30am Tuesday morning for the airport, early enough to be in resort for lunch which is good.

    Overcast here but warm enough to have the back door open.

    2 x jobs for me today, clean bathroom and kitchen – Bathroom done including descaling shower-heads and limescale removal on all shiny surfaces – we have very hard water here.

    Next is roast pork dinner, then the kitchen which will include wipe down of cupboard tops, and cleaning the oven, washing machine, fridge-freezer…. the works basically.

    My parents are coming Tuesday for 2 weeks cat / house sitting so like to make it as nice as possible for them.

    Abidan, your needs goes beyond your disability, i.e it could include needing a larger boot for 3 great danes, so I would expect there not be a problem in this case. Obviously if accepted I would think long and hard about your next car, and difficult as it is i know, try to envisage your needs not now, but in 3 years time. i.e is there likely to be anymore babies on the way. This is could be your last chance at an early termination.

    Congratulations btw, sorry it’s late.

    Hi Abidan,

    So you’ve had 2 x early terminations within a 4 year period.

    Says here, “…your eligibility for the Motability Scheme may be affected if you cancel your agreement more than three times in any seven year period.”

    https://www.motability.co.uk/contact-and-support/faqs/can-i-cancel-my-car-lease-agreement

    Thus my understanding is you will be allowed a further early termination, although a fee of up to £250 maybe charged and you will forgo any Good Condition Bonus on your current vehicle.

    Best thing to do is give them a call next week, tell them the situation and what they advise is best. They will assess each situation on a case by case basis.

    Let us know how it goes
