    Default Vec-C and Motability

    A colleague at work has a disabled son and as such, the family qualifies for a Motability vehicle.

    Unbeknown to me until today, is that he's just chosen his next car - an SRi CDTi150 in Peacock. The ONLY thing he has to do is make a one off advance payment and then Motability run the car for 3 years - tax, insurance, servicing, breakdown (he'll need that ). Basically everything is paid for and he just puts fuel in it.

    The cost of this advance payment (remember this is all he pays for 3 years) is..........

    £245

    What else could he have got for the same low payment? Just a few examples are the Kia Ceed GS, Corsa 1.3CDTi, Citroen C2, Pug 207, Fiesta, Clio. Oh, and new bottom of the range Insignia would have been £2000 .

    I'm really chuffed for him - a great car, for free (almost).

    But it's not free , he gives up his sons higher rate mobility benefit.

    I know what you mean Rich , but this country are to soft , other countries don't give a 7055 , they leave you to your own devices , not that I don't feel for the lad and his family .

    personnaly i dont mind people who are really disabled using this system good luck to them they've obviously got bigger problems than me, but what i cant stand is these people who use the system and put it on the other day i seen someone pull up to a disabled spot chuck their badge on the dash and run and i mean RUN to the shop, then i saw him hobling back nuthing wrong with him 5 mins before. people who take advantage of this country should be shot on site there parasites

    on the other side people who claim disability get an allowence and they have to give this monthly allowence up or partially to get these cars so its not free they do not get the money they would normally have got

    my rant was so long i left it too late lol

    the reason i say this because my brothers m8 is on a very high rate of bennafits due to a bad back (its a lie by the way)

    he drives round in a brand new car and gets it paid for and it makes me sick, i think thats one of the reasons im bitter about it.

    if someone is very needy then why cant they be given a used car like most of us have got on here???

    because it couldnt be controlled mate, the whole purpose is for disabled people to be able to get around safely (so dont know why you can choose a vectra lol) but i understand why they do it i just hate the scum that abuse it
