    My car

    When I first took delivery of the car there were several niggling faults such as B post rattles and quarterlights leaks but these were quickly sorted out. The one major fault was that the car pulled to the left. The dealership came up with all sorts of reasons such as camber of the road, it was a characteristic of this type of car. i was getting nowhere despite the car being left with them for several days total. I decided to write to Ford Customer Care and they took up my case. The lady who had my case was brilliant. She kept ringing the Ford Technical Department, the Dealership workshop manager and me. Ford then came up with a modified geometry reading and this was done. The car is now a superb car and I would highly recommend it. Ford even gave me my first service free for all the hassle I had had. i would buy another Ford in the future.

    My car

    Great car but some poor design. Not only is there no spare wheel but the tyre for my vehicle (225/50 R17 98) is not widely available. So if the repair kit doesn't work or if you have more than 125 miles to drive I'm are stuffed. Only puncture so far took 2 days to get a replacement tyre. Still at least I wasn't on holiday with the family on the Continent at the time you'll probably have a 24 hour plus wait. Bluetooth connection for the phone seems to work ok. However why is the phone cradle hidden away in the coin compartment by the driver's knee. Unless its an incoming call or you've put on voice dial its very difficult to use the phone. Why isn't SatNav more reasonably priced? Why does DVD play come with only 2 head phones and no ability to put through car's speakers. Poor radio reception on MW. Why are roof bars so big standard roof box brackets won't fit?

    My car

    Purchased in April 07 now done 17k miles. Very pleased with the car overall and an excellent tow car for our Sterling caravan. Dealership have been very good despite a few niggles - the quickclear front screen had gaps in it but it was repaired quickly. Had some difficulty with the tow bar interfering with the rear distance sensors, and had 3 different types fitted before we found a swan neck with sockets fitted below the bumper was the only that worked. Thoroughly recommended.

    My car

    I've owned my present 2005 dual Ford/Volkswagen build Galaxy 1.9 TDi zetec for nearly three years and found it extrememy good all round. When a boy racer decided to cross the carriageway and crash into my vehicle it was in for repair for 4 weeks. During the repair time I was given a new Ford Galaxy 1.8TDi Ghia for the period. I must say it was really good to drive. The roll on roundabouts was near zero compared to my own car since its lower profile aids this. Economy wise, I travelled nearly 1500 miles and returned 44.3mpg under various driving conditions. The best was 47.7mpg by the onboard trip computer. Acceleration was impressive, no flat spots, almost instantaneous. The clutch release to biting was quite short and a little keener than my own, but I got used to it quickly. I found the rear-most "in floor" flat storage seats hard to pull up, maybe because they were brand new and stiff. The sound system with Mp3 playback was excellent for a standard fit item. I liked the car so much that I've just ordered a new Galaxy Ghia 1.8TDCi 125 for delivery mid April 2008. I am sure I won't be disappointed if it compares to the hire vehicle.
