Summary:

Not a bad car at all

Faults:

AC empty.

Some light switches broken.

Brake job.

Tyres.

Oils and filters.

General Comments:

Reliable, comfortable and nice to drive.

I did not like the seats and the lack of boot space.

Good on the road, the 2.3 is fast enough, but I would opt for the Ghia X with dual AC, the single manual system I had was not efficent enough. Also, I have never owned a car that steams up like the Galaxy did, I briefly owned a Sharan too and that was the same.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
