I woulds like to be the first to reply to this one. The first motability cat I had was a Renault Megane. I loved that car but unfortunately I had a lot of trouble getting in and out of it because of my arthritis. You can read more about this in my life story in the Daily Life section. I could have kept my license, but I felt I would be too much of a danger to myself and others, so I voluntarily relinquished it by sending it back to the DVLA. My wife no longer drives but still can and has her license. My daughter chauffeurs us around when necessary. The car I chose to replace it was a joint decision with my daughter, as she has 5 kids. We plumped for a Chevrolet Orlando 7 seater. An absolutely wonderful car to travel in, get in and out of and drive (so I'm told). Good mpg as well considering it's size. It's just had it's first year service so I've got another 2 years to go yet. This one has seats at the back that fold away into the floor and gives tremendous room for wheelchairs etc! It's perfect as a motability car. The next car will probably be either another Chevrolet or 7 seater equivalent. I think when it comes to big cars like that the Americans score very highly. Someones bound to correct me on this.

Mick
