Safety First

Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle Time can take a toll on any vehicle. No matter how often you have your car serviced or how well you take care of it, you may still reach a point when it is more economical to buy a new car then it is to fix your old one.

Alternatively, your local wheelchair accessible vehicle dealership will be on hand to make any minor tweaks necessary.
