We are currently on the market for a new car. What do you drive and how is it adapted? Any tips and tricks are welcome? I wish they still made Honda Elements any drivers out there?

    I just got a 2019 Dodge Grand Caravan. I am really liking it and the space it has inside. I can do a complete 360 in there in my power chair. I have a Scott's Driving System. I drive everything from one hand.

    I drive one of the at conversion trucks. I'm not sure what you liked about the element but honda has a new vehicle as well as ford that are similar to that. (pictured below)

    @Sterlion Awesome car! Do you transfer into the drivers seat when you drive? I like the suicide doors.

    I drive from my wheelchair. That might be an option if I had a van, but its a lot more smooth and faster getting in and out of a truck.
