Ford Galaxy (2006 - 2015)
Last updated 7 January 2016
Powershift of ex-Addison Lee Galaxy 2.0TDCI failed at 109k miles. £900 to replace. Running beautifully at 149k miles, with 40k miles clocked up in 6 months.
By "All New Galaxy", Ford means what it says. None of the new Galaxy is a carry-over from the old one. It isn't even made in the same factory. It has new engines, new transmissions, a new floorpan (from the next Mondeo) and it's now built in Gent in Belgium alongside the new S-Max, instead of in Portugal along with the VW Sharan and SEAT Alhambra that shared almost everything apart from their badges.
The old Galaxy sold a solid 10,000 a year in the UK; 100,000 over ten years, making it consistently the best selling 7 seater in the UK. Happily the new Galaxy improves on it in every respect apart from prices, which have been kept remarkably well contained.
