    I bought an MV-1 November 2012, had it upgraded to limousine status by AHA (The Limo Centre) in Toronto where I live and operate. Fantastic vehicle! Customers are very impressed with it as a limo and wheelchair clients? 'Over the Moon'. US making a grave error if they don't find a way to keep this in production for the 17 Million Mobility Challenged Americans who deserve a 'purpose' built vehicle! I also have a Sprinter but its a 'truck' for 8 pax. One wheelchair and or 3 or 4 pax, MV-1 fits.
