After 15 years as a cabbie John Ireton, from Colchester, is starting to look forward to his retirement. However, he hasn’t quite said goodbye to his driving days yet and last year took delivery of a new Fiat Freedom from Cab Direct. And it would seem he can’t praise his new taxi highly enough. He says: “I can’t fault the Fiat Freedom – I only wish I’d bought one years ago!”
Prior to buying his new cab, John had been driving a Metrocab. When he decided it was time to make a change of cab, it was the price that initially attracted him to the Freedom.
John explains: “I need a taxi with wheelchair access and the Freedom is great value for money.”
Specially adapted from the Fiat Doblo, the Freedom is Cab Direct’s lowest costing wheelchair accessible taxi. Besides the initial outlay, John has also noted massive savings since making the change. He continues: “Not only did I buy my Freedom taxi at a great price but I’ve also saved a packet on fuel too. In fact, I’d say the savings I’ve made pretty much cover my re-payments for the cab!”
With the Freedom there’s little doubt that the low purchase price combines with low running costs to make this one of the most cost effective taxis on the market today.
Available exclusively from Cab Direct, every aspect of the Freedom has been designed with the modern day driver in mind. As well as carrying up to four passengers there’s bags of luggage space to make sure you can handle every type of fare.
Space is something else that has proved another big plus point for John. He says: “I love the fact that I can get so much in the back without having to mess around with the seats. It’s excellent for customers with luggage. And ideal for me too – I also work as a karaoke entertainer at the weekends and all my kit fits in no problem!”
Nothing but Positives
John simply has nothing but good feedback on his new cab. He comments: “I have nothing but good things to say about the Freedom taxi. The drive is excellent and the comfort levels are great too. And, as I said before, it’s exceptional for fuel economy. I’m only too happy to recommend it.”
