I have taken every Ford Galaxy engine for a test drive. They are all great.
I own a 2.0 LX 5DR and a 2.0 TDCI 140 GHIA 5DR, but I wish i had a 2.0 GHIA 5DR too.
There were four cars on my list to choose from: the Ford Galaxy, Ford S-Max, Toyota Verso and VW Touran. I have road tested them all but the Ford Galaxy is the best amongst them.
My children love it and when you are on the road people are looking at the vehicle. I am delighted and proud of having this superb car.
This car is great - especially the performance levels given it is an MPV. I have been on the road in it since March 2007 and found it very practical.
The individual folding second and third row seats work well, allowing a combination of passengers and load, although even with all seven seats there is still a lot of luggage space.
The car performs and handles well - better than most MPVs. We also tow a 1500kg Ace Award Nightstar caravan and again it seems stable, even when sixth gear is achieved.
Other cars I considered were the S-MAX, Zafira, Toyota Verso, Voyager and Mazda 5 but these didn't do it for me.I've had the car 3 days and except for the spare wheel issue I'm thoroughly happy with my choice. My wife and children like it. Overall quality is very good, one small gripe being that there is a little rattle on bumpy surfaces which I think comes from the seat belt height adjuster but I'm not absolutely sure.
I own a 53 plate Galaxy Ghia and love it. Ready to sell for the new shape. Saw Derek Cozens review and became concerned. I have been fortunate to have been given access to a 2007 Galaxy 2.0 diesel, a few weeks old. I have now driven it for 2 weeks, done nearly 2000 miles and - HATE IT. Why? It drives wonderfully - just like a car, and I have pushed it hard. It looks good. However, the Turbo lag in first is appalling - in fact really annoying. As you go to pull away it's so slow then suddenly takes off. The lender nad friends all complained of this. It does not like 30-40 slow cruising. And trim is falling off already. Seats are thinner and just doesn't have a quality feel about them. For a £21000 car I expected a lot more - at least to the quality of my old car. Mmmm! Am I buying one - No. Would I recommend it - No! Now what's the alternative?
