RUBBISH - throw it in the dustbin!!!
WE ABSOLUTELY HATED THIS CAR, ONLY GOT IT BECAUSE WE NEEDED THE GINORMOUS BOOT FOR THE MAJOR DISABLED BUGGY/PUSHCHAIR/WHEELCHAIR.
It was the most DANGEROUS car that we have ever had. It was so big that we always had trouble parking it, even in the disabled bays.
I don't think that it was sound proof, as most cars are, as it was very noisy, and I have driven LOADS of different makes of vehicles in my time.
The only thing nice I can say about the Galaxy is the HAND-BRAKE (I LOVED THAT); it was so comfortable to grip and to pull + push. But if that's all I can say about a car, then that's quite bad. Wouldn't you agree?
AND YES!! I DID TEST DRIVE THE CAR! BUT, UNFORTUNATELY, NOT OUT ON THE COUNTRY LANES WHERE I DRIVE EVERY DAY, AND IT DID ENCOUNTER PROBLEMS, SO THAT'S WHY I GAVE IT BACK TO THE GARAGE BEFORE IT COULD ENCOUNTER MORE.
I was so glad to finally give it back for the SAFEST CAR on the market, and NO, we would definitely would not recommend anyone to have a Ford Galaxy. EVER!!!
It was very noisy. The engine was noisy as well.
We found the leg room was TOO MUCH (you honestly don't need that much, even if you are 7' tall).
It had a high ceiling, which was good to climb over from front to back, but WHY!! (if you were 8' tall, you still don't need that height).
We also found that it was just useless in bad weather; didn't grip the wet roads at all, and cornering in the bends was dangerous, as it was so top heavy, and it didn't have the strength.. so you had to make sure you slowed to a near stop, to ensure you didn't roll or swerve sharply.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
