Variation in quarterly prices

Hi guys, just wondering if anybody could enlighten me if there is much of a change in upfront costs between each quarterly period

    Assume you mean for a motability car? If so I would think not, but not all cars have an upfront charge
    Be extra nice to new members.

    Hi @woodbine unfortunately the car I’m interested in comes with upfront costs and the dealer said there is a chance the fee would rise, but being new to all this and only seeing the q2 prices I’m not sure how big of a swing in cost there potentially is

    I think it'll depend on the model you've chosen, rather than anything set by Motability, so not something that'll be a flat rate increase across the board. 

    Prices of new vehicles do go up regularly as specs get changed every 6 months or so.

    Price went up by over £2000 on Mitsubishi outlander phev for ppl on dla/pip  and the Vauxhall grandland x by £700. It Is how dealer predicted, sales are bad so the number crunchers cut the discount offered to Motability. Absolutely appalling, but also shame on you Motability for making new customers wait until prices skyrocket before they can place an order,
