    You are looking at the SUV and not the microvan, right? That's what the CX-5 is, just making sure. I've never seen that specific model, but for an SUV it sure does look lower to the ground than most others. If it's the standard 5 you're talking about, yeah that's my YouTube vid with the homemade chair loader.

    Glad to hear it, they look like a decent vehicle for those that can do the transfer and pull the chair apart. Keep us posted as you improve with it.

    Here is the link: youtube.com/watch?v=0KgyWxqC1Y0

    I'll be making a similar setup for a Chrysler Town and Country in the next few weeks and will make another video once I dial it in.

    Have you ever considered the Speedy-Lift? http://www.adaptsolutions.ca/products/index.php?prd=4

    I know its expensive but I really think the value shows by how much easier it is to get in and out.

    The speedy-lift is what I was going to get until I found out it was $6k, which is what inspired me to do my own. This thread is more about the CX-5 which speedy-lift wouldn't work with the standard rear door.
