    Hi and welcome to the community 

    Sorry to hear what your going through trying to get your car 

    I would think it's more down to the incompetence of the dealer rather than being disabled

    Hello @monkeyboy and a warm welcome to our community,

    I'm sorry you've had such bad luck in getting a car and completely get your frustration.  I hope liaising with Motability will help hurry up the process and get you your new wheels sooner rather than later.

    Just to advise, I've removed the specific mention of companies in your post to avoid accusations of libel.  Although I understand why you included them, I've done this to protect you and in no way invalidate what has been a thoroughly poor customer experience.  Also, I've tweaked the thread title to help others spot it more easily.

    Please let us know how you get on and I have my fingers crossed for some good news :)
