Before the stroke I ran a rather nice SAAB 9-5 estate car
however it had a manual gearbox and was a large and heavy beast (as well as fairly expensive to run).Also I was not using it much since my second retirement, relying on my wife's small Kia Picanto, with her reluctant forbearance.
As my left leg is still weak as a result of the stroke I decided to look for a smaller automatic with a high driver's seat for ease of access. I wanted something where the back was adaptable into a "van" so that I could carry my e-bike to ride at places more distant from home. The result is as ugly as sin but meets all my parameters, the back seats collapse right into the floor with the advantage that, even with the seats up, with their centre part removed, you can just slot a bike down the middle between them (after removing the bike's pedals) and it simply stands there with no securing needed.
(for illustration only - mine's green!)
A low mileage automatic Toyota Yaris Verso - not made since 2005 but sadly mourned by the cognoscenti ( and cheap too - a mere £2000):
It is an old man's car in my book, - my wife calls it the "Popemobile"!
