Re: New car for Mum

Not the bonniest car, but plenty of space & equipment;

Another nice car;

One that is another popular choice;

Hope these show what's available.

Best of luck,


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.

Re: New car for Mum

Am I alloyed to ask this but even though your Mums Mum is in a wheel chair how easy does she find getting into a low down car. I would consider going for a modus. Loads of cheap ones around with sensible miles. If your mum wants diesel the 1.5 DCI 80 or 86 bhp is worth going but unless she is doing a lot of miles stick with the petrol version. Avoid the 1.2 16v and 1.4 16v and go for the 1.6 16v VVT manual.

Currently in Haree's garage:
I don't have a garage just a driveway. The Modus 1.6 16v VVT Dynamique Auto is my Grandparents car which I also drive.

Re: New car for Mum

My Nan finds it much easier to get into low cars, it's a real mission getting her into my Scenic but my wife, who is also in a wheelchair finds the Scenic easier to get in and out of.
