  • Ford Model: galaxy

Posted 14 March 2009 - 08:04 PM

hi, my first post in the ford forums at present owmimg a 1999 renault grand espace 2.2 rxe dt,
it is now time to replace my car & i have always been a lover of fords having previously owned 10 different models,
i am looking to buy a galaxy on a budget of about 3000 plus p/x on my car (was offered 500 p/x for it the other day!). any tips on which model please?- i have been looking at the 2.3 ghia about 2000 /x-y reg but am tempted by the 1.9 tdi ghia too, any common faults that i should be looking for on either model?, i also like the power offered by the 2.8 ghia but looking at the fuel returns it doesn`t look to good! any help greatly appreciated.
thanks,
gordon edwards.

be cautious of the v6 volkswagon engine, these have a habbit of the cam chains snapping above 90000 miles, if they do it is such a big job to replace most are scrapped due to being uneconomical to repair.
