    Default vectra might have to go

    i been speaking with my mum and she has said she may be moving just round the corner from where i live as there is a house going. she also asked me if i would be the driver on a mobility car for her . obviously i said yeah.

    i have developed a connection with the vectra and will be sad to see it go, but in its replacement i will get .................

    insignia 2.0 cdti sri nav 4x4 160.

    please feel free to add a comment or even reccomend another car !

    Motability cars should be used for the benefit of the claimant only, I would be keeping my car, how else are you going to get around to do things for yourself

    Not sure youd be covered to drive it unless she was in the car with you or you could prove you were on your way to pick her up from somewhere. So you wouldnt be able to drive it to work etc.

    Like in your other similar post ...... http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showth...tting-Insignia ....done about 4 minutes before this one === L.O.L.


    As a designated driver , i would check the disability / motorbility rules .

    I have heard different things about these cars ..... maybe rumours , myths or maybe true .

    e.g.

    You are meant to only drive the car if the badge holder is actually in the vehicle .

    Even if the car has a disabled badge , you can only park in the designated areas if they are in the car .

    I would check up on the percentage of use YOU can have driving ,,,, WITHOUT the disabled person in the car .

    I once was a named 2nd driver on a motorbility policy back in 1994 and had an accident ( without the disability person in car ) and all was fine , i just paid the £ 100 X. S. and the car was repaired .

    Also ,,,,, i don't mean to be rude ,,,,,, but how demanding will your mother be ,,,,,,,, regarding taking her to appointments , shoppping etc etc ?

    Will you be selling your soul for a brand new car ? L.O.L.

    Most of us would do anything for our parents in need , but how much time would being the designated driver take up of your life and do you want be called at any time of day ?

    I hope i havn't offended , by saying this .

    Hopefully , you can drive the car as much as you want and you and your parent get on well

    and hopefully you can buy the car in 4 / 5 years time for a knock down price .

    P. S. = Do you still get 4 tyres every year free ? Do you pay for servicing ?

    Best Wishes to you both .
