the thing with a motability car is any damage to it when you hand it back you have to pay for,so it is in your interests to look after it.i doubt if you will follow it to the auction m8,it sometimes sits in a yard while they wait to see if it gets sold before it ends up in the auctions.i have said this before but i strongly advise against people going to auctions. i have been buying and selling cars for 20 yrs and i still get caught out at the auction.so dont do it,you dont have time to check it over ,drive it or anythingblug said:ill chase it to the auction then ,i think itll go back to the main dealer,but i have a couple of mates in there who'll keep tabs on it.
i heard motability used to lose money hand over fist,so theyve got quite strict about damage,if they want to make money on the car after someone has paid a 3 year lease,then thats just wrong.
most lease cars are very well looked after,if it is a maintenace included contract then it is free to the leasee,if it is not the onus is on the leasee and there are finacial penalties if the service schedules are not adhered to.motability cars are generaly looked after in the main dealers,again as maintenance is included.all of them are mot'd when they come up to 3 yrs before they are solddellow said:All lease cars are badly looked after including motability, they use shit oil, and don't spend a penny on them when there coming to the end of lease, steer clear if I was you.
really......when i was in a main dealers the motorbility cars got everything.....used the same oil as everything else....i personally gave them 110%........in my experience working in main dealers ......i have NEVER seen what you describedellow said:All lease cars are badly looked after including motability, they use shit oil, and don't spend a penny on them when there coming to the end of lease, steer clear if I was you.
So have you had experience on motability then Weve had 3 of them and the buy back is crap, nothing to do with condition etc just the condition of sale as they offset the hire charge etc.Topbloke said:Contrary to what has been typed on this thread (largely by people who quite clearly have no idea what they are on about ), you should buy your mums car from Motability.
Your mum will be offered it at a price which is above trade price that dealers can buy it, but less than a retail price that dealers will ask for the car. Your mum will have had the car from new, and you know how well itís been driven and cared for during the 3 years she has had the car.

Hello, just coming in on the end of thread,I've bought ex-mobility, always from BCA, normally from Blackbushe coz the selections better, Bridgewater OK but have to be a bit more selective. visit www.british-car-auctions.co.uk and give um a call, if you're luck enough you can pick up a low mileage car that might just be coming up to its third birthday, nip into your local franchised dealer,buy an extra manufactuers warrany for a few £100 just to give piece of mind or buy a afterwarranty from www.warrantydirect.co.uk.Topbloke said:I have extensive knowledge on this topic.
