Not so much an opinion, more a long and sorry tale of woe... Purchasing a Galaxy back in '96 was hardly a snap decision, as we've test driven and looked at all the other people movers available. It took 4 months for our eagerly anticipated shiny new Galaxy to arrive only to find that the garage hadn't even done a proper inspection on it - it was covered with chips and scuffmarks! We took up their offer of taking this Galaxy while another, hopefully unblemished model, was shipped over, which sounded like quite a good deal in the circumstances, but soon we started having problems: the bumpers started falling off (repeatedly), the driver’s door ...

I have had a galaxy turbodiesel auto for 22 months now, it was bought brand new and serviced by a main dealer garage. In this time it has done over 100000 miles, it has had to have 3 new gearboxes, not one under warranty, I only received one year warranty. My cars brake servo failed and I had to pay for it myself until ford realised that there was a safety problem here, they refunded my money only when threatened with court action. They still have not sorted out the problem because my car is on its 4th brake servo now. The air conditioning smell and has had many faults. The car is currently off the road requiring a new wiring loom for the gearbox, maybe a weeks wait. On . Read the complete review

We have had our Galaxy for 4 months and I have fallen head over heels in love with it. Not because it's the newest car I've ever had (which it is) or because it's the biggest (which it is) but because it's the best. We have a 2 litre Galaxy GLX petrol version which is 5 years old. Although we also liked the VW Sharan and the Seat Alhambra (which are all the same chassis & body I believe) our budget was more suited to the Galaxy, which is one of the most affordable people carriers there is. We discounted the Toyota Previa as we needed rear doors on both sides, not just one. The reason we needed a bigger car was that we have 2 children who ... Read the complete review

We bought a Galaxy as a compromise between an estate car (my choice) and a camper van (my husband's less sensible option!) and I think it has to be one of the best purchases we made. We didn't buy it as a "family car" but to cart around our bulky equipment (bikes, inflatable canoes, camping gear etc), and for what we wanted it is great. It can fit two bikes (it even has a gizmo that fits in the rear seat fittings that means bikes can be clamped onto it and stand upright safely, saving precious space for other things), 2 canoes and all camping gear. My favourite feature, however, is the swivelling front seats which mean we can sit facing the back, with ... Read the complete review

The Ford Galaxy is Ford's people carrier. It has just had a slight facelift, the traditional Ford thing of changing the lights at the front but not doing anything to the shape of the car (they have done this to every model they have ever made!). The Galzxy seats seven, and looks quite simple, but is nicely rounded and curvy. they are available in a wide variety of engines and specs, from economical diesels to a high capacity petrol engine. A variety of specs arer available, with the top of the range being the Ghia. Overall, if you have a large family this is a good all-round vehicle as it's roomy, econmoical, and very comfortable and refined. Read the complete review
