Galaxy Tdi Ghia rare 150bhp 6 speed (York)
« on: April 11, 2021, 08:45:54 am »
I've owned and maintained my Gal for over 13 years and she still drives as well as the day I bought her. I've made the mistake of upgrading to a mk3 Alhambra and it not as comfortable or economical so disappointed. I've list it on Facebook and eBay number 133722204108 and can guarantee it's a good car with loads of years left in it. Will be sad to see her sold.

Sell the Mk3, keep the mk2
I drive a Seat Alhambra 1.9Tdi which has 115bhp and an automatic gearbox.

I am happy to help you with all your questions. I am not a qualified mechanic but seem to be better at fixing my car than even the most experienced garages.

I have lots of friends here and very much enjoy talking with you all.

Also, do u really get 50mpg at 70mph? I only get about 41mpg on mine at that speed. Did u remap it? Might consider doing that myself too given the big economy gains  8-)

Yes but those figures are from the trip computer but quite consistent. 45 mpg if driven harder. The 150bhp was better than the lower power versions strangely hence why I bought it. Mk 3 not returned more than 45mpg so far.

Remember you have a auto box on yours as well as the different engine.

Ah yes, very good point!

These Alhambs (and Galaxys) really are excellent aren’t they, they achieve such superb fuel economy for such a large motor car!

I concur, sell the Mk3 :)

I can also say that with conviction because I've just sold my Tiguan and gone back to the Mk2 Galaxy - having been sat in the garage for nearly two years on a trickle charger it started up on the key, went strait through an MoT (one advisory which I'm still annoyed about, a side light bulb which was working when I set off!) and then did a 300 mile trip the next day averaging 44mpg. Felt every bit as stable and comfortable as the Tiguan did for a car with double the mileage and age.

I genuinely believe the Mk2 Alhamb/Galaxy is the finest car (most practical, economical, fun, comfy, reliable etc) to have ever been made.
