“Ford Galaxy 1.9tdi 2001 Mk2 115bhp”

Written on: 21/04/2013 by nexsuperne (1 review written)

Bought this on a whim, as it already had the 18" wheels and rubber band tyres on it. I had a mudplugging Land Rover Discovery which killed yet another gearbox, so was fed up with sitting on cold concrete fixing the poxy thing. So I bought something more 'sensible'. The Galaxy had 125,000 miles with the standard bits done (timing belt, clutch, lower wishbones, bearings and windscreen wiper motor assembly). Economy is incredible for nearly a 2 ton car, If I keep it as 60mph, it returns between… Read Full Review

I bought my ford galaxy in December, nothing but problems with it, it kept going into limp home mode, when took to the garage one said blocked cat or head gasket, then another said water pump, turbo sticking and then could possibly lead to head gasket. expensive to repair...
i loved it as plenty of space and nice to drive when working, and really good on diesel, but i wouldnt say it was a reliable car, and really in 2 minds whether to get rid, i love everything about the looks of it, size etc… Read Full Review

Mass Air Flow Sensor will cause all these problems, and are well known for it. You may also have a leaking vacuum pipe.

Written on: 31/01/2011

Bought car from Ford main dealer in Newport Wales second hand with full service history. Interior slight scratches but ok. Paid market price for what we thought was a good 4 year old car ( in 2008). First MOT cost £800, rear brakes needed full replacement and list of other faults. Second MOT front brakes, driver door lock (just needed strip down and clean)and rear exhaust but took it to ATS Euromaster who did a very good job. Ford wanted £700 but cost £300 at ATS. Ford hourly labour rate is £70… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/02/2010 by LewInMadrid (1 review written)

Although I love the interior space, my Galaxy is having problems with going into limp-home mode. It started when the car was about 9 months old and after lots of visits to the garage, they changed the turbo and all was fine till a few days ago when the dreaded engine failure message has started to appear again. The car has only done about 8,000 miles, most of it start-stop city driving… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/01/2010

Good points - loads of room inside the galaxy for all passengers and driver. The seats can be taken out thus leaving a van like space. Nice and comfortable to drive.

Bad points - The interior of the galaxy is very flimsy and the speaking grilles have broken. Lets in water resulting in the driver's side footwell flooded with water. Windows then get steamed up and vision is very poor. Dangerous situation!… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/05/2009 by pc01 (1 review written)

A good sized family car let down by woeful reliability and build quality. A true seven seater that can accomodate three child seats across the second row. Curtain air bags lend a sense of safety.
Fuel efficiency is its one cost saving feature. Engine performs well (when it works). Our Ford Galaxy was bought with reasonably high mileage (80k in four years) but with a full service history. In the 11 months I have owned this vehicle:

The air con has had a faulty sensor and compressor ( very… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/10/2006

I have a 1.9TDi 115 BHP Ford Galaxy, and I had exactly the same problem with mine, and everyone was saying it was the turbo not working. Ford tested it and could not diagnose a problem. After speaking to several people they all came back with the same answer, and that was the air flow meter (air mass meter). I put a new one on the other day, and I now have full power. The part only cost £80, including VAT, and I fitted it myself.

<br/>Hope this helps

Written on: 04/09/2006

I had the same problems with my TDi. In the end I found out that the fuel line filter was dirty, so the engine management system puts you into limp home mode. You need to have the in line filter replaced, then have the management unit turn back onto full drive. It drives as if you have no power, only just enough to get you about. The total cost was around £100. I hope this helps you.

Written on: 13/04/2006 by henry muirhead (1 review written)

My Ford Galaxy is very well used as I use it for work. I am averaging about 60k miles a year. I have recently been having problems with my gearbox but only when I am climbing a hill. It doesn't have to be a steep hill just a small incline. I have had it put on 4 (yes 4) diagnostic computers at 4 different garages and there is no fault found. I have contacted Ford Head Office and hopefully they are going to get to the bottom of the problem. I will let you know at a later date… Read Full Review

I have experience tyre wear in my Ford Galaxy and can not identify the cause. Rear tyres (Dunlop - so good brand) last 10k miles and are worn to the metal on the inside edge approximately 2-3 inches across the tyre. Both rears the same - but can only assume something serious is wrong, any ideas welcome… Read Full Review
