    Need to change car as wife has rheumatoid arthritis and cannot get in/out of the a4

    I have an a4 cab sport, and need to change to something easier for the wife to get in and drive when I am drunk.

    The problem with current motor is you have to "drop into the seats" and getting out kills her knee.

    What I need to know is what would be better for her if I change motor?

    I looked at q8, far too big for her, land rover freelander wasn't too bad. Nissan Quasimodo was ok for her to get into,

    Any other suggestions, and how much should I ask for my motor? I have advertised it on here for £14999. Right price?

    Whats the spec of your car?

    The Audi Q5 is a good car but we also looked at the VW Tiguan which was great. Me and R lass were looking at the same sort of cars as you but so we could get a baby in and out easily. Deposit went down on the Nissan quash thingy but we cancelled in the end as we just couldn't decide.

    I found that most of the sort of cars we were looking at were so dull and uninspiring so good look with your search.

    LOL thought about trading in the wife, but worked out FAR more expensive than trading in the car. Anyway, you seen the price of cooks these days? Criminal!

    Tiguan looks nice!

    Anyway, been offered £14500 cash for it, do you think that is a fair price? Glass's says £14000 trade, £16800 retail.

    Yep, it is the only real offer I have had in 3 weeks. What is weird though is that he hasn't seen it, he will be travelling 180 miles to buy it, with the cash in pocket. Not sure...

    Ive always went straight to the bank with the buyer without touching the money, did it once and he was £200 down so be aware!

    Ive always loved the Tiguan, looks awesome.
