Pay More Get Less!

Hi,
Now that Motability have their website back up and accepting order, I was shocked to see the massive increase in the advance payments required? and having kept previously downloaded PDF brochures of most models I've been looking to renew my contract with before Coronavirus and comparing the new PDF brochures specifications, you can clearly see your paying more and getting less for your advance payments.

There is a major crisis in car sales Euro wide and at the first opportunity, who do they they hit with higher prices - model wide - The Disabled!!!. There are now non stop TV, Radio, Newspaper advertising special 3 month manufacturers paid payments wirh  0% interest finance. Motability is supposed to be negotiating on behalf of its members, they only seem to be negotiating prices up the way!!

Why do they have a monopoly on this service, a monopoly provides no benefit for the customer, only for the profit of the monopoly!..£2.5 Billion profit to be precise.

    hi @deasson58 hope you're ok this evening, the last figures I saw (some months back) was that around 38,000 people had lost their motability cars when they moved from DLA to PIP or had PIP reviewed, maybe thats why they have increased prices?
    Be extra nice to new members.
