For eight years, Ford's Galaxy has had an easy ride. As the UK's best-selling full-size MPV it had the opposition licked - despite being virtually identical, the VW Sharan was pricier and the SEAT Alhambra didn't have the right image.

The Galaxy is under threat, but not from an Attack of the Clones

04-reg Diesel, Owner for More than 5 years

A very practical, economical and reliable people carrier. Build quality far from perfect with various bits of trim falling off, paint finish staining and washer hoses becoming disconnected.

06-reg Diesel, Owner for 3 to 5 years

Brilliant all round vehicle, comfortable, great tow car. More room and better ride than a Discovery. Lots of space to sit in the back, drivers seat like an arm chair.
Holds the road well for a vehicle of this size.
little fridge ideal to keep drinks in when in Spain. Good all round visability.

03-reg Diesel, Owner for 1 to 3 years

Could be a lot better, it doesn't like the cold or the wet, lots of faults show up when it goes below freezing but it is fine when warmer. Lots of design features that make it a nightmare for running costs including the diesel particulate filter, fuel additive, lots of electrical faults.

2004-reg Petrol, Owner for 1 to 3 years

03-reg Diesel, Owner for 1 to 3 years
