I need a small automatic car for my mother-in-law

Mother in law has Peugeot 207 Auto 1.6 petrol. The gearbox is playing up and the overall finish of the car seems poor.

Whats the most suitable replacement? It will be used for short distances (10 miles) needs to be an auto and must be well bolted together as it has to negotiate 1/4 mile of farm track. It doesn't need 4wd.
