      Vauxhall Zafira v Ford Galaxy

      Does anyone have either of these two cars?? Pros and Cons??? I'm after a people carrier that isn't too much like a bus - or I'll need a ladder to get in!!!

      Would be grateful to hear your opinions.

      From DH who deals with cars with his 'best make' he would say steer clear of Vauxhalls!

      Fords are great as if they go wrong they are easy and cheap to repair - I have three friends who have galaxys, all love them, lots of space - the only thing is that they do not have 'sliding doors' like my car!

      And are you saying my car is like a bus (it is the same length as a galaxy!)

      I have a Zafira and I love it - it really doesn't feel big to drive and I went from a Peugeot 206 to the Zafira. I've never seen a Galaxy (except for the variety ) so I don't know anything about them.

      i have zippy the zafira and looooooooooooooove it - the Ford Galaxy isnt really comparable with the Zafira due to its size (Galaxy is bigger)

      We can get the 3 kids in (2 car seats and 1 buggy) and the dog plus bags etc and still have room

      Dynamo had a Galaxy, then bought a Zafira, will point her in this direction!

      From my experience, the Galaxy feels much 'bigger' and more bus-like while the Zafira feels more like a 'normal' car, IYSWIM? Both have 7 seats, but the Galaxy definitely feels more people carrier-ish!

      My child minder has a Zafira and loves it.

      Personally I drive a Ford and love that but haven't driven a galaxy. Ford parts and servicing are cheap and they're pretty reliable cars but looks wise I think I'd prefer a zafira !

      What make is your car? I said to DH I liked the sliding doors on yours - for some reason I thought it was bigger than a galaxy

      I had a Zafira and loved it, we swapped it for a Mitsubishi (sp?) Grandis which I loved even more (also 7 seater, but looks more like an estate and has more room in it)

      The zafira is really nice to drive and the pro to it over the Galaxy is the back 2 seats fold into the floor whereas with the galaxy you need to take them out which is a PITA to store them (my friend had a galaxy, but this was a few years back, not sure if its the same with newer models, I presume so) The only bad thing I found with the zafira is once all 7 seats are up there isnt much boot space, you would fit a stroller buggy in but not a larger one (although I beleive the newer models are slightly longer so the boot could be bigger)

      I would get a zafira again

      DH the car says the Galaxy is loads bigger and more like minibus size. Depends if that's what you want really
