Awesome all-round workhorse. Driven carefully will give upto 50MPG and costs no more to run than any estate car. Versatility is the key whether carrying people or stuff or a bit of both! Very comfortable on long journeys.

I have owned the Ford Galaxy from new. In general it has provided very economical and versatile service. I cover approx 15K miles per year and usually average 45 plus mpg. On the odd occasion it is used around town it is still in the 30's. There have been some problems however. Aircon was the main one with the matrix and compressor being change under warranty.
