The second-generation Ford Galaxy and first-generation Ford S-MAX share an identical floorplan that’s based on the third-generation Ford Mondeo running gear and engines. The S-MAX is the smaller of the two, although both models feature seven seats – the S-MAX is described as a 'sporty' seven-seater, while the Galaxy is a more family-orientated standard MPV (Multi-Purpose Vehicle). Both petrol and diesel engines were available from launch, although petrol models are rare. The diesel engines were 1.6-, 1.8-, 2.0- and 2.2-litre models. Later models have a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) fitted. Power-assisted steering is standard on all models. Air conditioning is fitted to most models. All models have an ergonomically designed cabin with high levels of safety and comfort for all passengers. The engine compartment is well-designed, and most of the items needing frequent attention are easily accessible. At Haynes, we have an extensive range of Ford repair manuals and online maintenance procedures available for professional mechanics and DIY car enthusiasts. Our Ford Galaxy and Ford S-MAX repair manuals are here to help you through every stage of servicing or fixing your car.
