I need to replace a seven-seat 2001 Ford Galaxy. Am finding newer models very expensive and I am on a budget of €15,000. Would the Volkswagen Touran or the SEAT Alhambra offer the same reliability?

Yes, they should, but it's worth bearing in mind that the Alhambra and Touran are very different vehicles. The Alhambra we'd refer to as a 'full-size' MPV, with proper space inside for seven adults. The Touran is a more compact vehicle, based on the same architecture as the Volkswagen Golf, and the third row seats are much smaller, more suitable for kids than adults. Of the two, we'd go for the SEAT - it's one of the most impressive family automobiles around and SEAT has a terrific reputation for reliability.
