    My car

    Purchased from new, now passed its 3rd birthday.

    GOOD POINTS A great drive and handling for a big car, as good as my old Mondeo.

    Feels great even with a full passenger load, even pulling a caravan.

    Bags of space inside, but poor luggage space when all 7 seats used (can only just take a pushchair)

    Economy is OK, but only 10k between services and car usually screams before time ... could do better in this department.

    BAD POINTS

    Reliability and build quality is the WORST of any Ford I have had ... so BE WARNED!

    Over the last 12 months, Air con has broken 3 times, clutch replaced, drive shafts broken and leak in the A-pillar besides bits falling off the trim. Has cost an extra £2000 recently as my warranty was only 48 months.

    It is a good car, but unlikely to buy another ... just cannot trust it .... 'what will it do next?!'

    For this reason I can only give it 2 stars (it ought to get 4!)

    My car

    I own a Ford Galaxy. I have four children so needed something big enough to fit them all in.

    Ever since I have owned it, I have had problems with it. All in all, I have spent nearly £2000 pounds on it in two years. Never again.

    There is not enough space for my luggage or shopping. If you have a baby and need to take a pushchair with you, it's difficult to get with all the seats in.

    In fact, I really dislike this car. I am now seriously thinking of getting shot of it and buying a Mitsubishi L200 or Merc M Class.

    By the way, when I bought this car, it had full dealer service history, only 64,000 on the clock and one owner from new.

    My car

    I only bought this car a few weeks ago but have driven Galaxy in the past. This is the best mpv money can buy. Its not very big but carries 7 people with ease and in comfort.

    Car-like road handling with good economy gives you in excess of 40 mpg. Very nice to drive and very powerful.

    Parking sensors are very welcoming and do help and assist in parking in tight places. So far no complaints whatsoever.

    My car

    It is true - the Galaxy does drive like a saloon. The interior is refined and practical. A word of caution - a number of niggling mechical faults. The diesel plant is a VW, so I'll go for a Sharan next time!
