What cars would be best for my old dog to be able to jump into the boot?

I need a reliable car to travel from Southampton to Bournemouth four times a week as well as a 20 minute drive to work each day. I have a 2004 automatic Ford Focus now, which costs a fortune in petrol and tax, and my old dog is finding it hard to jump up into the boot. Can you recommend something easy for her to get in and one that will keep the pennies to a minimum please?

Go to West Oxfordshire Motor Auctions in Witney (www.woma.co.uk/) and buy an ex-police dog van that will be a Ford Focus, Vauxhall Astra or Ford Mondeo Estate specially converted and vented for carrying large police dogs.
