1998 Ford Galaxy Ghia X 2.3i from UK and Ireland
Ford supplied headlamp covers will not fit without severe modification, the headlamp design has changed in last 6 months.
The paint on my car is very prone to stone chip damage, 10 weeks old 3500 miles and 30 stone chips!! I await Fords verdict.
Dealer service will go down if they fail to sort this problem!
I seem to get 23 MPG hence the running costs = 7.
Fuel consumption could be better if they gave it a real overdrive top gear, but then performance would suffer.
Leather seat option is excellent! If you buy in Belgium you can have the Ghia-X with leather seats + alarm + metalic paint for the price of a GLX in the UK!
This engine option gives the Galaxy the performance of a 2 litre saloon, not bad for 1750 kg and a tall car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
