A Change of Vista™ - An Allied Mobility Testimonial

Posted in General News on Wednesday, November 18th, 2020

Allied Mobility customer, Jessica Taylor-Bearman, recently bid a fond farewell to her old wheelchair accessible vehicle (WAV) in favour of a brand-new model, the Volkswagen Caddy Vista™.  After decades of managing a complex condition and chronic pain, the new Vista™ is helping Jessica and her family start a new chapter in their lives.

As Jessica’s condition and life changed, she found herself with a new set of requirements for her latest car. She explains: “I needed a car that could fit my recliner wheelchair but was able to have proper seating for my daughter’s Isofix car seat to fit. I needed it to be a comfortable ride because my chronic pain had intensified greatly.”

Vista Gets the Vote

After returning to Allied Mobility and getting sound advice from their local mobility advisor, Karen, the family test drove a number of different options and ultimately decided on the spacious Volkswagen Vista™.  The Vista™ enjoys great accessibility for Jessica and her wheelchair with comfortable seating for her husband Samuel and space for their daughter, Felicity’s car seat. 

Of her second experience with Allied, Jessica recalls: “There was always somebody friendly to talk to for advice. Karen was so thorough and made it so easy. She was so careful to make sure that I got a car that was completely suitable for all my complex needs.”

Rising to the Challenge

Shortly after delivery the family put the Vista™ to the test by driving from their home in Essex to visit family in Kent. Straight away, Jessica noticed a difference in how comfortable the journey was. She also loved the fact that she was able to sit in the rear of the car where she could keep an eye on Felicity throughout the long journey.  Since then, the family has been getting out and about as much as they can and look set to have many more years of happy motoring ahead.

Jessica concludes: My new WAV, (fondly named Beryl), rose to the task of bringing comfort and safety for us all. I thank my lucky stars I found Allied Mobility.”
