Addison Lee's Galaxys

We are looking for a large MPV - Auto/Diesel - which will only do around 6-7k pa.

What do you think of the high mileage Ford Galaxys for sale by Addison Lee Car Sales? You can get 100-125k mile cars for £6-7,000. They appear to have been meticulously serviced, but I imagine would have been subjected to fairly heavy wear and tear ferrying passengers around London.

Well obviously Addison Lee sells them at a point where they could start to suffer failures, but I think they are good buys for that sort of money. All automatic. All black. Will need a timing belt if not already replaced.

No problem with dual mass flywheels with the 6 speed torque converter auto. Might need a diesel particulate filter, or an eolys replenishment.
