Ford all the way!
FORD MONDEO 2.0TDCi 130 Ghia X 5dr  (Review date: 6th April '13)
This is my 7th car since passing my test in 1994 and my 2nd Mondeo estate. I had a 2litre petrol 1999 Mondeo Ghia as a work car for 6 years until 2010 and it never let me down - not once! I used it all day everyday and it was only off the road due to numpties hitting me and damaging it!
Last year I bought a 2005 diesel Ghia X. My first ever diesel and I love it!
The good points: it's huge and has loads of leg room even when fully loaded. Even the glove box is the biggest I've ever seen on a car. The build quality is fantastic, every button and dial oozes quality - even the carpets are nice. Has electric everything! My dog loves the room in the boot (or on the backseat, sshh ;-)
The bad points: the clock is analogue not digital! Much quicker for a driver to take their eyes of the road to glance at an LED clock than an analogue one! It does smoke a bit but being my first diesel not sure how much is normal? Only other niggle is that it can take a few more seconds to start when it's warm - very odd! Even the mechanics can't fix it. But it's not a real problem.
Go for as high a spec as you can as you get everything you could want but lower specs come with loads more goodies than any other make of car.
All in all if you want a quality huge car with a touch of affordable luxury then get one asap.

06 Mondeo Estate 2 Ltr Ghia Auto
FORD MONDEO 2.0 Ghia 5dr Auto (Review date: 18th April '12)
I bought the car a Ford Direct with 6K on the clock 5 years ago, it has taken us on many holidays with our 2 daughters a golden retriver, and my mum plus the lugage! It has also done UIni runs with all the lugage and pots and pans!! I have had one ongoing problem with brakes which must have Ford parts fitted. The fuel consumption is 23 MPG around town and 34 MPG loaded on runs and I find it 's performance smooth and fast enough for a family estate.
I have kept the car because it has been so good and this year I was looking for a replacement, I don't like the shape of the new Mondeo, I looked at the Audi and BMW range but for the cost of these cars there is no justification for changing as it only has 40K on the clock plus they don't have the ride or comfort that my Mondeo has.
To sum up I find the Mondeo Estate a good all-rounder and would recommend it.
FORD MONDEO 2.0TD Ghia X 5dr (Review date: 28th January '12)
My one was an estate.motorway 10 pound gives me 70 miles.If u like powerfull cars,this one is not.Need to be carefull with engine.Always service it in right time,diesel pump is very weak,you must change fuel filter every 10k otherwise will cost you 700 pound to change diesel pump.Glow plug light comes up,engine lose power,you have to restart engine every minute almost.Injectors are not good either.Mondeos should be sold with inflaters,i had to pump it every 3 days,its a common alloy problem on mondeos.ohh almost forgot,central lock work on his own way,if it does not want to open the passanger door for a few days,it wont,need to take the battery off.So many of these cars are on the road and people say,what a great car,just becouse they have not driven any others.Dont trust them,its not a good car,give you too much headache.
FORD MONDEO 2.0TDCi 115 Zetec 5dr Auto (Review date: 24th January '12)
We have the automatic version, which I love to drive as so simple & relaxing. Bought for the dog and daughter going off to uni So ideal for those purposes. Only prob no parking sensors & as such a long car it is good idea to fit them yourself. £15 eBay. Done 130,000 miles, seems to go fine but only had it 4 months. Long journeys diesel very economical whereas driving around town very expensive. All in all very happy with car so far, comfortable, drives well, looks nice, spacious so all good.

FORD MONDEO 2.0 LX 5dr (Review date: 24th January '12)
bought this car with 170k on clock.£900 . drives like a new car. was on lpg conversion most of its life. dont know if this has any effect on reliability of engine but had it 6month now & love driving it. maybe a little heavey on fuel consumption but its not let me down yet. drive a 60 mile return run once a week. fast & comfy.
High performance estate car
FORD MONDEO 2.2TDCi 155 Zetec 5dr (Review date: 19th January '12)
I've owned this car for 4 years which is a long time for me. The combination of space, reliability and performance make it a pleasure to own. I've looked at newer cars encluding the latest Mondeo but can't find a combination of price and added value (mine has several extras fitted) to make changing it worthwhile. It has excellent performance as the 2.2 litre TDCi engine is very different from the 2.0, highly suitable for hilly north Devon. In fact it's probably the best performing car overall I've had and makes other cars including BMW 3 series and Mazda MX 5 feel very sluggish.
The car is used for commuting, camping trips, holidays and trips to the tip and excels at them all. Like all Mondeos it is a pleasure to drive.
The only faults are slightly spongy brakes and corrosion on the alloy wheels which seems excessive for the age and mileage.

FORD MONDEO 2.0TD LX 5dr (Review date: 17th January '12)
having been a ford mondeo driver for the last 12 years having had six of them..my present one is the estate ,which i have driven for the last 3 years,this has been a good car while i have had it,mainly used for travelling to work, making a journey from liverpool to crewe daily for 3 years trouble free.on long journeys they are economical ,not so economical around the town,good familly car good spacious car when you fold rear seats down you can get all kinds in them negative side the diesel model has a common problem with the dual mass fly wheel that has to be changed can be quite a expensive job
