Ford Mondeo 1.8L Zetec
FORD MONDEO 1.8 Zetec 5dr (Review date: 19th January '12)
A nice family sized car with a touch of quality you don't find in smaller models, even room to rest your left foot when cruising. Comfortable in both front and rear seats, quiet at speed and air-conditioned for summer comfort.
The Zetec engine is one of the better, more reliable Ford power sources and starts first every time, even over the winter, so far. Great for both short and longer journeys, the car is a pleasure to drive.
A little expensive on the tax front, being a 1.8L engine, but not quite top line. An affordable bit of luxury. Around town, I get around 32mpg and much better on a longer run, so it just fits into my budget for fuel.
It's the first car I've felt comfortable with in around 5 years.
Ford Mondeo. Great all rounder

Great Car to drive shame about the niggles
FORD MONDEO 2.0TD Ghia 5dr (Review date: 19th January '12)
I have owned this Mondeo 20TDCi for 6 years and and have covered 60,000 miles now showing 75,000 on the clock. Car has been main dealer serviced from new.
Whats great still drives as well as the day I bought it brilliant on the motorway quiet refined comfortable for its size very econonmical 50mpg easily acieved up to 56 on a motorway run,loads of room inside and plenty of space for all our luggage bodywork is excellent no rust paint does tend to chip so it is wise to keep a check on it, Ghia Spec is excellent 6disk Sony CD, Climate control auto lights Etc, I do find the auto wipers annoying espeacially in foggy weather bit of a gimic ditto the auto dim rear view mirror. No major mechanical problems at all just normal wear and tear one set of discs and pads one back box, two front shocks and a rear leaf spring I blame traffic calming on my drive to work 10 miles through various villages.
Whats not so good is the niggling faults which seem very expensive to fix factory fitted reversing sensors have failed 5 times in 6 years cost either £120 or £160 to mend each time, 2x plastic door liners failed causing soaked carpets £200 to fix, boot catch failed another £200. other fixed servicing costs reasonable circa £200-£250. Overall opinion a great car let down a little due to poor build quality in some areas.
Mondeo is a great car
FORD MONDEO 2.0TDCi 130 LX 5dr (Review date: 18th January '12)
I have driven Fords for many years. In the police we found they were the only car that could stand the pressure of 24/7 use. I have had several makes of cars over the years but now I am back with a Ford, this time the Mondeo with a 2ltr diesel engine. I chose this car as I wanted good miles per gallon and this gives it. I wanted power to overtake and the Mondeo is not bad. I also wanted to get my fishing gear in without losing the front two seats and the Mondeo five door allows this along with the other gear I need. I wanted a comfortable ride and the Mondeo gives a sure footed feel while travelling country lanes or motorways. I wanted cheaper road tax and insurance which the Mondeo provides.
Great cars, but Fords always are, I think.

FORD MONDEO 2.2TDCi 155 Titanium X 5dr (Review date: 18th January '12)
My 2.2 TDCI Titainium X is a great all rounder, plenty of shove when required and 50mpg on a run.
It practical, I have carried an unbelievable amount of stuff in it from garden waste to writing desks. who needs an estate?
I've had the car for 3 years, commuting, town runabout and business trips, 10 hours behind the wheel one dismal friday and I was still comfortable at the end of that LONG day.
My biggest downer on this car is that car parking spaces are getting too small and getting hit by doors is an all too often occurance.

FORD MONDEO 2.2TDCi 155 Ghia X 5dr (Review date: 18th January '12)
This is probably the best car we could have to suit our needs.
We tow a large caravan and most of the time you would not even know it is there.
The car pulls with no effort.
Up hill is not a problem and we have the power to overtake when necessary.
Economy wise it is by far the most economical car we have ever had, even when towing.
The only downside for me is the leather interior, it is cold in Winter and hot and sweaty in Summer especially on long journey's.
The air con is great.
It's a sheep in wolves clothing!!
BMW Drivability for Ford money!!!
FORD MONDEO 2.0TD Ghia 5dr (Review date: 17th January '12)
Fantastic family car that drives and handles better than some hot hatches I have owned in the past, whilst still being able to carry 5 adults in supreme comfort with a boot big enough for everything you need for a weekend away.
My car was an early TDDI so not as great economy as you get from a later TDCI but had the more reliable mechanical Fuel injection system. My car averaged 39mpg which I thought was good with 150k miles under its belt.
The only reason I sold this car was because I wanted a new car with lower mileage.
Reliability wasn't great and I had a bill for over £600 for a new Clutch and Dual mass Flywheel. (Common problem so i am told) I also had to replace 3 rear brake calipers over 24 months. And I also had to have front springs replaced.All in all i spent over £2000 on repairs and servicing over 3 years. All in all the car was high mileage and other than these complaints I really loved this car especially its heated front screen and comfy seats.
One of the most Under-rated cars ever.
FORD MONDEO 2.0TDCi 130 Zetec S 5dr  (Review date: 17th January '12)
Great value for money but very under-rated. This family car is very economical and very practical. You get 50-60 mpg, which is a big plus with the cost of fuel these days!!! With plenty of space inside for passengers and good boot space, the mondeo offers you a lot. If you have 2 children, the estate model may suite you better, but the engine in these are incredibly reliable and well built. A pleasure to drive and the 6th gear for motorway driving is the best thing ever, along with the cruise control!! Not a used car to be over looked!
