Looking like our trusty 2006 honda crv is going to becoming to an early demise (147,000).

So in the process of figuring out which vehicles will make the short list, but never having bought a new vehicle as a wheelchair user wondering what kind of deals folks manage to get or look for out of the dealership/manufacturer etc?

Example, do dealers offer deals on hand controls and such like?
Any kind of body work protection from the constant banding of the wheelchair etc?

or anything else folks have figured out.
