Welcome to FordMPV.com!

Our Forum is the place to visit if you have a problem or a question with and of Ford's MPV's. > Take me to the Forum!

Welcome to FordMPV.com, a specialist website set-up to cover Ford Europe's range of Multi-Purpose-Vehicles or MPV's. Everything on this site is free, our aim is to unite DIY'ers, drivers, mechanics and auto electricians together to share knowledge and drive down the cost of motoring. We have three forums, the Ford Galaxy Forum, Ford S-Max Forum and Ford C-Max Forum - use the link above to visit the forums. Our Ford Galaxy forum covers the largest MPV Ford make and the S-Max Forum takes care or the sportier model. Finally the C-Max Forum brings up Fords smaller MPV.

FordMPV.com was setup in November of 2011 (Yes we are that new!) and is slowly growing as a resource website designed to help all drivers of Ford's MPV's.​ If you look around the internet the MPV sector gets a little left behind with owners clubs and forum sites either being thin on the ground or lacking in the administration skills needed to effectively share the knowledge they have. We have specifically designed FordMPV.com to combat this which is why it runs the latest version of the popular SMF Forum software, has three administrators so there is never a shortage of "staff" and finally why each model has a specific "Reference Library" which contains common faults, solutions and technical information. ​FordMPV.com primarily caters for Ford's larger MPV's - The Ford Galaxy and S-Max. We have smaller sections for the C-Max and the new B-Max. Since the original Galaxy was a joint venture with the VW Audi group (VAG) we therefore welcome drivers of Volkswagens Sharan and SEAT's Alhambra. 

Within each models "Reference Library" we have technical posts that cover some of the more common faults, problems and maintenance items. For example you'll find information on:

The 1st generation of Ford Galaxy was launched in 1995, face lifted in 2000 and replaced in 2006. This model was a joint venture with the VW Audi Group (VAG) group and is around 80% identical to the VW Sharan and SEAT Alhambra​
