Ford Galaxy MPV
  • 1. The air-con system is a known weak spot on the Galaxy, so give it a thorough work-out during the test drive
  • 2. The rearmost seats aren't easy to get at and they're heavy to lift in and out
  • 3. The engines and gearboxes are robust as long as they are serviced on time. Brakes, too, give little cause for concern
  • 4. The suspension can give trouble - and not just on cars that have been used for hauling heavy loads
  • 5. On early cars, water leaks through the ventilation could affect the electrics
