I stopped working as a technician for Ford before the S-Max/Mk3 Galaxy appeared so I can't be of much help with this, the 2 litre petrol engine used in the S-Max and Galaxy would appear to be the Duratec-HE Ford lump (with chain driven cams) as used in the 2000 on Mondeo so it's been around a while and should be well proven as long as it's been looked after. The bushes for the rear suspension can deteriorate at higher mileages and the design of the suspension is fairly complex, plus it all tends to seize together with age, the 'rocket thruster' type handbrake levers can cause trouble (if it's not been sorted already)........

That's all the help I can be, there will obviously be other model specific faults but that's about all I can say. Ultimately, there's always a degree of chance involved with any used (and new for that matter!) car depending on how it's been treated and looked after.
Always learning..... Often by mistakes!
