They employ MINIMUM workers who dont actually pay much toewards YOUR Government supplied DLA! There are many more workers who pay a lOT of taxes towards YOUR DLA from Nissan, Honda, Toyota, Jaguar land Rover and the many thousands of first and secont tier manufacturers based in this country, unlike BMW and Mercedes, who only employ the minium sales and service technicians. All of the parts used for MINIs for example, surprise, surprise, are from German and Germany based companies.
As for the Mercedes B class, i have driven it, if you looked back at my posts and I was distinctly underwhelmed with it. I am afraid too many Disabled who get their Motability and other benefits froom the British workers, want the badge to pose around in.
No wonder people have a go at the Disabled, its time that BMW, Mercedes and the rest who contribute nothing to the Bristish econaomy, rather take from the British people were removed from teh scheme. Less Choice? good.
Keeping jobs in the UK, even better.
Not having a posure badge on your driveway with a motability tax disc? even better.
So why did you start a thread 2 months ago saying how you went and viewed and also test drove a BMW X1 Auto under the motability scheme? total hypocrite.
Earlier this year my dad laid down a deposit for the Mercedes B class, he was told it was up to an 8 month waiting list but all seemed worth it because of the car he's getting. Unfortunately, he's car less at the moment, is there anything Motability can do?
If not, is there anything any company can do? Just a courtesy car while you wait.
If your father ordered a B200 in any guise, its well worth waiting as Motability are only offering the B180's this quarter and the prices keep going up.
