Just had our car picked up today and given a courtesy car, a Vauxhall Corsa. Its B*** Cr**. Its awful, its way too small, I dont know where anything is, the gear stick is a nightmare, cant find first as reverse is right next to it and keep slipping it into 3rd. Thats only the first hour, yet to find more faults.

I cant even find the doorlocks - so if anyone wants to car jack me, youre welcome lol.
The last courtesy car we had was a Fiesta, that was small too but at least I knew where everything was, and it was really nippy.

I cant understand why as a mobility customer, they give us cars the size of peanuts when motability is for DISABLED people. My wife has severe arthritis andsciatica and cant bend down into something so small without trouble.

All this just because the bin men reversed his lorry into the side of the car and he says he didnt.
He's denying he did it and even saying he wasnt even down our street at the time it happend, yeah right - Ive got 7 people who will state the time he was down the street at the time it happend.

My father -in-law has also been given a corsa after a visitor to neighbours reversed into his Fiesta & caused over 3000 worth of damage.He can`t stand the corsa either as he has back trouble & the seat is impossible for him to get to the best position for him.

I would use the insurance legal side and say that the car given cannot be used, citing the disabilty issues. Failing that, you could hire a MPV and claim the costs through the insurance.
