New Motability Prices Q3 1st April 2016

New Motability Prices

New Prices (Summer) released 1st July 2016

New Motability prices will be released on Friday 1st July 2016, will see the release of the Quarter 3 (Summer) Motability prices. Please post your comments and ask questions at the bottom of the page as we are all here to help each other. We are fortunate to have some regular contributors, that we really value, who are kind enough to impart their knowledge. The Quarter 3 (Summer) price period is from July 1st and runs through to 30th September 2016.

From Friday Midnight we will update you on all the movements (up and down) on this page, we will continue to post the War Pension (WPMS) prices alongside the DLA/PIP prices. WPMS weekly payments are presently £64.15 compared to £57.45 for DLA/PIP therefore Advance Payments are around £1000 less than those of DLA/PIP.  Even with this extra award there are no more cars available to War Pensioners. Every movement up or down on the previous price can be tracked with our little arrows. means the price has increased (if you place your mouse on the arrow you can see by how much the price has increased) and if the price has decreased you will see a green arrow Price reduced from previous quarter price or is there is no change in price the arrows will be side by side .


The recent referendum and the resultant mandate to leave the EU will not affect the Scheme as it is controlled by the British Government. There are obviously wider issues to the Car Industry as Britain’s biggest export to the EU is automotive parts, and as auto parts are exempt from the World Trade Organisation accords Europeans would be free to discriminate against them with tariffs. 40 per cent of cars made in the UK are exported to the EU, while over 730,000 UK jobs depend on the motoring industry. There is clearly a lot for the new Prime Minister to sort out.



We call on Motability to clear up the confusion at the level of deposit a Dealer can ask for once a car is ordered. Some Dealers do not ask for a deposit at all while most will ask for between £100 to £250, we feel a flat £100 is a reasonable amount to stop Customers changing their mind and inconveniencing the Dealership. The level of deposit required is solely at the discretion of the dealership and as we know there are good and bad ones, the one that asked the customer for a £1000 deposit against a £499 Advance Payment should hang their head in shame, we we flabbergasted when we were informed.


New Cars

We feel that the Scheme has never been stronger as the range of vehicles avaialble to choose has never been wider and the prices are generally realistic. There are a few cars we would like to see added to the Scheme, Mazda CX3 and CX5 along with the Honda HRV and sadly it looks like we will have to wait until October Q4 for the new VW Tiguan to be added.
