Ford Galaxy Diesel Automatic hire car.

Spacious, quiet, comfy, quick enough. HAd done nearly 60K, don't know if that's a relevant excuse but the autobox was shocking - hunting and grumbling continuously, and not holding on to a gear when in "manual"

Clearly you are expecting too much from this vehicle Wink

Hire car with 60k? That's the first issue, but you are probably comparing what is essentially a bus with an Alpina! I echo the comment above! Lol

Fair comments! I wasn't trying to rally it mind, just tried "manual" to try to stop it changing gear every 2 seconds - got a bit wearing on a near 600 mile motorway run!!!
