What economical, practical vehicle comes with a long warranty?

I'm hoping for advice on the best new economical and practical vehicle to buy with a long warranty. Or perhaps advice on the best secondhand model for my needs as an older female drive. My ideal car/van would be suitable for small children and as a multi-purpose vehicle. I wish to go camping, but also use for work and carrying large bits and bobs to the tip. I love my Peugeot Partner van and would like something with windows in the back.
