I will have to update this thread soon...

The Galaxy lasted us till last April... It had had a coolant leak since before we got it in 2008, and the low coolant sensor was not working around 206-18. Signs of head gasket lead to a HG replacement in 2017, she soldiered on but in early 2019 we where seeing signs of excessive coolant pressure and eventually water kept finding it's way out of new and interesting places... So I found a 380 1.9 TDi 130 Galaxy that had been eaten by a dog, it was stinking and seats all damaged, we swapped the interior over and had ourselves a cheap and much more economical replacement. I don't like Diesel but this does suit it. 8K covered in 9 months without any major issues so what a bargain

TT
