My dad has just retired, he's had Parkinson's for a few years, his tremble is steadily worse but he is still able to drive and be independent. He can walk 1-2km with plenty of rest stops as he has had both hips replaced and spondylosis as well.
So, now he's getting rid of his taxi, he's looking for an automatic car that's easy to get in/out of.
My best suggestion so far is a Ford B-Max as the position is quite high and with no central pillar and the sliding door, it's easy to swivel in/out of the seat.
What other models would you recommend?
He is on full Disability Allowance and was thinking of getting a Motability car through dad but I think it's better to buy the car outright if we can afford it and have the disability money as he only has a state pension.
What is your experience of motability?
It seems to provide convenience but not be the most financially efficient, is that true?
Thanks in advance for all your help.
