On Purchase the Air-conditioning didn't work. Eventually it was almost fully rebuilt at a cost to the vendor of over £1000. I now discover this a very common fault on Galaxy's.
The cruise control does not work properly, but we so rarely drive on uncrowded motorways that I really don't see a use for it.
Dark blue metallic paintwork seems incredibly easy to scratch.
Some items of interior trim are of very low quality (e.g the door pulls).
Parking sensors are intermittent.
Dip beam poor despite adjustment.
Front tyres seem to be wearing very fast.
Initial impression is of a well designed and reasonably good looking car (well for a van it is...)
The seating is flexible a comfortable for short journeys. However the removal and particularly re-fitting of the rear seats is very difficult due to weight of the seat units. The seats are cushions are too hard and flat and cause "numb bum" on long journeys. Although the upright driving position and firm backrest is good for my bad back.
The climate control panel is placed so low as to be unreadable, however now the A/C is fixed it rarely needs to be altered.
Bootspace is huge when used as a five seater, but could do with more tying down points.
Engine is smooth and responsive for a big four cylinder unit. Gear change has a slightly loose, clunky action, but always finds the right gear.
Handling is safe and surefooted, but loads of bodyroll discourages spirited cornering. A reasonably quiet car overall, the main source of noise seems to the (Dunlop) tyres.
Brakes are powerful, but rather overservoed. Oddly engine braking is poor.
Fuel economy averages just over 30mpg with a very creditable 35mpg on long runs, but this reflects the cars rural habitat.
Nice to have a chain driven camshaft that isn't going to cost £200 to replace every 40K or so.
In summary this a good product that could be better.
