What used Ford Galaxy MPV will I get for my budget?
Prices for this generation of Galaxy start at about £16,000, at the time of writing, this for a late 2015 or early 2016 car, with an average mileage and a full history, bought either privately or from an independent dealer. Up the dosh to between £17,000 and £19,000 and you should be able to pick up a clean 2016 car with a low mileage from a franchised dealer, while £20,000 to £22,000 should find good late 2016 or early 2017 cars with an average mileage.
How much does it cost to run a Ford Galaxy MPV?
It’s the diesel-engined cars that are not surprisingly the most economical. It’s worth noting, though, that the 2.0-litre TDCi 150 engine, our favourite here, is exactly as economical as the lesser powered 2.0 TDCi 120, at an average claimed consumption figure of 56.5mpg. The 1.5-litre Ecoboost petrol engine gives it a good go, though, despite its diminutive size, propelling the large Galaxy well and offering up a claimed average figure of 43.5mpg.
Insurance groupings are reasonable, working in a range that starts at 17, for the lowest powered diesel, and continues up to 26 for the fastest 2.0-litre 240 petrol engine.
Ford dealers are generally one of the cheaper franchised dealers when it comes to service rates. You should still shop around for the best price, though. In fact, servicing costs are generally reasonable, with a service required every 12 months or 20,000 miles, as well as a number of Ford service plan options for used cars, including those that can spread the cost of future services by monthly direct debit.
