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

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.
