    2018 pricing indication

    In just a few weeks we shall have the benefit of q1 pricing and a flavour of what we might expect to see in terms of costs going forward.

    Current limits I understand are £28k and £29.5k, manual and auto. Many of the big suv's have gone.

    As I said a while ago, some manufacturers have manual cars on the scheme, but not automatics and even those well below 30k, some autos, which are around and sub 25k, do not even show on the scheme at the moment.

    Will be interesting to see what Q1 brings.

    Not much of a price limit for an auto then these days is it sadly. Think if I was still on the scheme id struggle to get one now that suits

    I wonder if Motability customers actually check the manufactures own listings as well as the Motability website. I find the range of models differ sometimes

    Here’s a thought - in a few years there will be self drive cars. Nobody will need to own a car. I wonder if Motability will be needed for promoting lease hire cars. Food for thought!

    My thoughts are that driverless cars will be the same as the buses where you wait an hour for one to turn up at your door then along comes three in a row.

    Not to mention such abuse such cars will get from those who don’t give a hoot with then leaving litter and god knows what all over the upholstery of the car for the next customer.
