As a child, Margaret had an accident, which led to her leg being amputated. Recently retired from teaching, Margaret has relied on the Motability scheme for many years to visit pupils who are not in mainstream school.
Margaret regularly gets out in her Ford Kuga which offers easy access and plenty of space. For 12 years, she has seen our Lookers Motability Specialist, Steve, who she ‘loves and respects’ because they are always on the same wavelength about what she needs.

Time to give your brakes a break?
Many drivers know that they can save on fuel by laying off the accelerator pedal, but did you know you can also cut fuel bills by 12 per cent if you avoid unnecessary braking?
Ford is introducing technology so that drivers can slow down in good time – and avoid hard braking – based on what lies ahead, and even out of sight.
EcoGuide will help customers drive more smoothly by using satnav information that provides advance notice of junctions, slopes and bends, or upcoming speed limits.
EcoGuide comes first to new Transit, Transit Custom van and Tourneo Custom people mover from mid-2019 – the first time such technology has been made available on a commercial vehicle.
