Dear What Car?,

I need a new car but I have very specific requirements. My husband is paralysed following a stroke. At present we have a Daihatsu Charade, but it is 14 years old and I'm afraid of it failing. I need something as similar to it as possible. As you will know, the Charade has two doors and a hatchback boot. The back seats fold flat so I can get a wheelchair and zimmer frame in with ease. I have been to our local garage and some agents but so far have had no success. Can you help?


The brief

It sounds like Jeni is in need of a city car that's similarly spacious to her current Daihatsu Charade, but also one with folding rear seats to make loading a wheelchair and zimmer frame as easy as possible. And since it sounds like Jeni doesn't cover many miles, a petrol engine is what we'll be searching for.
