I need a cheap car with easy access for my wife who uses a wheelchair?

I need a 2/3 door car large with a wide open passenger door. My wife has a wheelchair that slides into the passenger seat. I have a 3-door Volkswagen Polo which works, however, I sold my previous Hyundai i30, which was a mistake. Any older car will do if it is as reliable as my Hyundai. £5000 is my budget. Were both aged 83 and larger cars would be preferred comfort-wise

If you don't to go back to another Hyundai i30, we would suggest looking at the Honda Jazz, as although it has five doors it has a tall body and offers easy access. Alternatively the 2006-2011 Toyota Yaris was available in three-door form also has a tall body, so should make getting in and out easier for your wife. Also both of these options have good reliability records and you should find many examples available within your budget.
