Can you recommend a secondhand MPV for my disabled mum?

I need to buy a secondhand MPV for my disabled mum. Probably 3-5 years old. I think we need one with a sliding ramp at the rear, possibly with an electric winch, too. A Fiat Doblo has been mentioned. Do you have any recommendations or things to look out for? Thanks.

The Fiat Doblo is a good van, all reported issues with it can be found in the Good/Bad section of our review:

I'd recommend the Ford Tourneo Connect. It is more refined than the Fiat and is more plentiful on the used market, which means you can be pickier about its spec and condition:
