Handicap and Mobility

Joe Sosky
Commercial Mobility Sales
  After a career in education, most recently as the principal of an international school in Shanghai China, Joe joined Honolulu Ford.  His first visit to Hawaii was as a wrestling coach in 1982, when his high school team participated in a large Christmas tournament at Kahuku High School.  He still vividly remembers the sweet smell of the pineapple fields on the way to the North Shore and the special Aloha from the local schools. 

Prior to reconnecting in Honolulu, Joe and Honolulu Ford President Mark Benson were fellow Rotarians together in the Camas/Washougal  Washington Rotary Club where Joe served as the club president and Mark chaired the Rotary Foundation Committee.   Joe and Mark are like-minded when it comes to civic awareness.

 In short order, Joe has already put his mark at Honolulu Ford where he personally painted the purple Wounded Warrior parking spot in front of the dealership.  This is a simple demonstration of Honolulu Fords' appreciation to the men and women who have served and sacrificed for our great country. 

Joe's 18 year's experience as a principal developed a keen awareness of the necessary  accommodations needed for students with disabilities.  His hands-on experience  led Honolulu Ford to offer mobility vans for wheel chair users.  Joe's genuine caring for those with special needs and his ability to connect with government agencies, social workers, schools, and other wraparound services for those with disabilities creates a special offering at Honolulu Ford. Email Joe or call 808-527-3170 .

Mobility Program Details

 The Ford Mobility Motoring adaptive equipment reimbursement of up to $1,000 (or up to $200 for alert hearing devices, lumbar support or running boards) is available on any eligible Ford vehicle purchased or leased from a U.S. Ford Dealer during the program period. Maximum reimbursement per vehicle is $1,000.

For example: If the cost of adding adaptive equipment is less than $1,000, your cash reimbursement will be for the exact amount of the eligible adaptive equipment.

Vehicle Eligibility

  • All new Ford cars, vans, CUVs, SUVs and trucks sold or leased during the program period are eligible in the Ford Mobility Motoring Program.
  • New vehicles acquired from a U.S. Ford Authorized Pool Converter are also eligible.
  • Eligible vehicles must have the qualifying adaptive equipment installed within one year of reported purchase/lease date to the ultimate consumer.
  • Used vehicles, including those previously in rental service, lease service or repurchased vehicles available for resale are not eligible.

Modification & Adaptive Equipment Eligibility

  • Major structural vehicle modifications to accommodate the installation of a wheelchair lift or ramp MUST be completed by a Ford-authorized Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM) to be eligible for reimbursement.
  • Raised roof and lowered floor conversions alone do not meet the eligibility requirements. Documentation must show that mobility adaptive equipment (such as a wheelchair lift, ramp or adaptive controls) was installed on the vehicle.
  • Adaptive equipment is defined as devices that make it easier for persons with permanent physical disabilities to drive or be transported in a vehicle.

Customer Eligibility

  • Customer must be the end-user of the vehicle that requires installation of qualifying adaptive driving or assistance equipment, or passenger aid equipment.
