Purchasing a New Car

Purchasing a new car can be an incredibly challenging and stressful experience.  Adding to this potentially unpleasant experience, many brain injury and stroke survivors also need to purchase special modifications (such as a wheelchair lift) to enable their new cars  to meet minimum required levels of accessibility.  Thankfully, many car manufacturers provide reimbursement for these modifications on new car purchases (and in many cases for new car leases).  Each manufacturer has its own program, so it is important to read through all pertinent details.  Below are links to the reimbursement information for many major car manufacturers along with applicable reimbursement limits where available.  In those cases in which the main manufacturer page did not have a link to the desired information, I have provided a link to a local dealer that does provide the relevant information:
