    My car

    Drives well, very practical, just lacks luggage space when fully occupied.

    Electrical faults are a pain. Fuel economy and running costs in general are disappointing. The 2litre lacks torque. Like a greenhouse without privacy glass.

    My car

    I changed from a Zafira Energy 2.0DTi to my Galaxy 1.9 TDi Zetec in March 2005 and what a wondeful swap it has been.

    The cabin has that much-needed extra space compared with the Zafira and other MPVs which I've owned, and the handling is virtually saloon-like. I particularly enjoy the motorway cruising, just over 2100rpm at 70mph with the six-speed gearbox, and surprisingly quiet too.

    I've returned mid 40s in mpg with a fully laden vehicle. In the town the ultrasonic parking sensors are a brilliant aid, no Reginald Molehusband performances from me, (for those that remember Reginald on TV).

    The joint Ford-Volkswagon effort has certainly paid off in my opinion, and I'm sure others would agree too. Maybe a fuel-usage or trip computer could have been fitted as standard in the Zetec models considering the price difference and the option of cruise control without having to go to the Ghia.

    My car

    Nice car to drive. The 90ps can be a bit sluggish but once you are used to the car it's fine. Comfortable. We seem to pick up a lot of road noise. Upholstry is difficult to keep. Had a Zetec model and upholstry was a lot better.

    My car

    On my third Galaxy and have had no mechanical trouble with any of them. Regularly get 45+ mpg on mostly motorway journeys.

    Never have the rear seats in, so can get bales of hay, DIY materials etc in with no problem. No real downside at all - I'll be sorry to see it go...
