    Not to sound rude but why do you need over a month to decide? You had the time before the first extension to decide what to get if you get awarded pip.

    What are you looking for?

    You can order near the end of Q2 or Q3 2020 price list. You have from 3 months before end of lease to order a new car.

    Hi Ian, You pay the AP that you agreed when placing the order so even if it increases the AP you agreed on when placing the order is the AP you will pay. But if it decreases then your agreed AP should decrease as well. Depending on the dealer… Most dealers do.

    I thought it was fixed even if it went down. People in the past used to cancel and reorder at lower AP but motability now has put a stop to that practice.

    RnG. The dealers only get around £400 processing a motability other. Most of the cashback is from that payment.

    Pity you couldn’t travel the distance. Only have to do it twice. To place an order and to collect the car. Servicing can be done by a nearby dealer. Motability will sort it out.

    Regarding test drives. It’s best to locate a second hand one and say you are buying private. Sick of this pip business etc. This way you have a better chance of finding a car near to the spec you want up order. For me it’s best way to find an automatic car.

    True Tomas but they are back to basic motoring. Motoring at the cheap. Old Renault parts means well proven technology. Think of Daewoo when they were first sold here, based on old Astra etc.

    Have a look at Suzuki s-cross or vitara, both sz-t spec at 0 AP. They come with rear parking camera and I think rear parking sensors. They won’t have the self park assist or other fancy gizmos

    My alteca , lux auto 1099 AP

    David, Do you mean the Ateca or the (now out of production) Altea? On WPMS the Ateca 2.0 TSI XCELLENCE LUX 5DR DSG 4DRIVE is £1097 AP (very close to the quoted £1099). Other than that, on DLA/PIP the cheapest Ateca ‘Lux’ Auto is the 1.6 TDI XCELLENCE LUX at £1499 AP? Dave

    And a fine car that 1.6 tdi is especially in Nevada white ?

    Someone mentioned the 2.0 TSI is no longer available.

    Forgot to mention the AP is high at around £1500 but have a look at arona or Leon, they might have similar features at a lower price. I have noticed that seat have more gizmos at a certain AP compared to vw and Skoda.

    I can’t think of any car that has the park assist at nil AP

    Hi young man, well you are younger than me.

    I have been looking at cars for under 25 so my offspring can drive for me. The choice is limited for me. I have come across an ideal car. It’s the seat ateca xcellence lux 1.6 diesel. The only engine available for under 25s. You could opt for a petrol engine which is more powerful and a different spec. Why this spec? Well it has all round parking camera and reversing camera. It has park assist. Great for the kids not to bump into anything. I have difficulty lifting my left leg. The sill is at the correct height and it is easy to get in and out. You mentioned issues with your right knee, you might struggle getting out a lower height car. I might recommend that you go for an auto since you have limited movements in your arm. The bonus point for me was the height adjustable passenger seat. By the way it has a feature which applies the brakes if you get too close to a car in front etc.

    This is one choice for you. Your first step is to go to any local dealer and decide what size height car is suitable for you then fine tune your selection.

    Fergal.. must you stick with golf? Have a look at Suzuki Vitara auto which is £299 or if you want to stick with vw group then look at seat ateca. Through these are suv type cars but there are other normal cars that will fill your needs.

     

    Buying used you got the hassle of high insurance, maintenance etc.

    in reply to: AP discounts – the myths and the truth?? #87436

    This is my view on this topic. It is based on what I have been told over the years. The AP is fixed. There is no discount on AP. A dealer will get a fee for taking an order of a car on the motability scheme. Latest figure I have is £400. From this fee the dealer can offer cashback offers. I have been told £400 is what is paid to all dealers but have heard of dealers giving £500 cashback etc. Maybe they earn more through car sales or servicing etc.

    The price is fixed. They don’t do finance. The drawback is they ask for top book price and unless things have changed they don’t offer any warranty etc.

    From my research the best option is to find which garage has bought the car or which auction it is going through. If you buy it from that garage then by law you are protected if something goes wrong. You can even buy a warranty from the said garage and pay by finance. If through auction you might get the car cheaper. It’s a matter of whether you can find out where the car is going after you return it.

    When I returned mine I asked for price just out of curiousity. After returning it I found it advertised at a local franchise dealer at a slightly lower price but with some warranty etc.

    Don’t forget the Suzuki s-cross. That was listed as small car at one point. Don’t know if it still is.

    One thing I hate about the search is if you have a large number of cars to look at and you go along the pages it goes weird and only show one car.

    I hope it does better than the Nissan Murano suv whatever it was called that was sold. I don’t know if it was offered in UK.

    We know that as overall under 25s are more prone to accidents etc hence the reason for capping the power rating and insurance groups for under 25s in the scheme. But motability should see the driving history of its customer and see if they can allow him/her a car which is slightly above the 120bhp limit or slightly above the group 16 insurance. Even consider adding a tracker to monitor their driving before the order date and/or after delivery of new car.

    I am also stuck in choosing my next car. My current car Renault kadjar my under 25 offspring can drive but they can’t drive the new facelifted kadjar. Do I stick with my current car????

    How old is the child? If above a certain age can the child seat be placed at the front? If yes remember to turn off the airbag.

    If you want a wider rear space then maybe s-max would be ideal. It has three adult seats not two adult and one narrow seat in the middle like on some cars.
