        Yup.

        Subaru is basically unadapted aside from hand controls. Nothing fancy. The Jeep is lifted on 35" tires, wheelchair lift in the rear. A few photos here: https://www.carecure.net/forum/showthread.php?t=129252

            I use a transfer board, but other than that I'm independent. The Outback's seat is a few inches higher than my chair but it's really not a big deal.

            C6 here as well, functional @ C7.

                  I have driven a minivan for years with seating for seven. Now that our children have grown up and have gone their own ways I feel I would like to drive something other than a van. A mom van just isn’t me anymore. The van I use currently has a Bruno lift that I can access from the passenger side. I put my chair in the van with help from the lift and transfer to the drivers seat. I only lost one seat with this configuration, yeah? My question to others is how does one stow a wheelchair in a vehicle if not in a van? I use a manual chair but cannot walk or stand.
