    My car

    Bought the Galaxy new in March 2007. Although its a nice car to own & drive I found that the aftersales service from the garage (a dealership in Bury, Manchester) to be very poor.

    The Galaxy had been in the garage for a few minor things.

    Then the power steering pump failed after it had been in the garage for a repair to the steering. I have now had the car back one week and I have noticed that the kluncking in the steering has returned.

    So I'll be off to the garage again.

    My car

    Have done 15000 troublle free miles in this car now. Bits of trim are still falling off from inside the cabin some of which I dont know where from. You need to drive it very very sensibly to get anything like mpg quoted (about 30mpg ave is realistic ). Just had 2 new front tyres (20000miles total) Suggest you shop about for these. Standard goodyears are £110 found pirellis at £75 Was told these would be noisy but are superb and excellent in the wet. car is still a cracking drive when kids dropped off pullling hard through all gears yet remaining firm in the bends and very un-mpv like. Its very quick from the lights even when full and getting more responsive as it loosens up. If you can put up with a less than average cabin build quality and you dont mind getting the araldite and self-tappers out from time to time as your kids knock bits of trim off, then get one... get the 2.0 desiel. It reallly is a great compromise of space and smiling through corners again...

    My car

    I have owned this car for almost four months and I have put over 7000 miles on it.

    I have found it very comfortable to drive: I use it for commuting 50 or so miles a day, driving around the city when I'm in work, family outings - just about everything.

    Through all this it averages about 40 mpg, even with four large adults, two kids and a 540 litre roof box.

    The only problems I found are with some trim along the driver's side of the windscreen, which keeps coming off, and a broken plastic cover on the handbrake.

    The one thing that bugs me is things can fall out of the boot when used in five seat mode.

    Other than that, I love the car

    My car

    I have only had the car for seven months but we all really like it. The 2.0 TDCI engine is very lively even for the 1799kg kerbweight.

    There is a little body roll compared to my last car (a Citroen Synergie MPV). When towing my caravan with the Citroen, it started rolling back down the hill when I was towing a 1379kg caravan. The car had to go to the dump.

    Towing the same 1379kg caravan up the same hill with the Galaxy (I would say the hill is 10 degrees) the Galaxy towed it up at 85mph - that's why I love the 2.0 TDCI LX.

    Overall quality is outstanding. Also, I have the rear-seat DVD package and the positioning of the DVD player is excellent, too.

    I was considering a Vauxhall Zafira at the time of purchase but chose the Galaxy as the space it offered was unbeatable. I have made the right choice and the rather short wait (from the beginning of December to the beginning of January) was definitely worth it.

    I love it.
