MONDEO 12 month appraisal
FORD MONDEO 2.0 TDCi Zetec 5dr Auto (Review date: 4th April '13)
I wrote a report on my Mondeo on the 27th February 2012 under the title "Mondeo Fan " So after another 12 months of motoring am I still a fan ? The answer is yes without a doubt.
I've reduced my score to 4.3/5 because of the running costs.£250 for the vehicle license is steep and might be a consideration when I trade it in. Although I mainly do journeys of under 20 miles, I'm getting 35 to the gallon according to the car's computer.
The only downside to a Mondeo is it's a fairly big car and can be difficult to park,especially in tight supermarket car parks.So if you do plenty of journeys involving having to park in tight spots you may find this a disadvantage.
I've no doubt the car is designed for the motorway.They have always been considered a typical "reps" car and I can understand why.They're quiet with plenty of room inside and have a large boot,I would think any sales rep. would be delighted to spend hours and hours a day driving a Mondeo.
Would I buy another one ? I'd strongly consider one as it's been (touch wood) really reliable-just one rear light bulb to replace in about 4000 miles.
The only car I'd suggest might be better,in this category, is a Passat. I found their seats are more comfortable when I had a ride in one.However my Mondeo has been so reliable that I'm thinking of keeping it for a few more years.
A good car for long journeys,especially if you require the space.
Mondeo is the best car in its class
FORD MONDEO 2.0 TDCi Titanium 5dr (Review date: 7th December '12)
I am now on my third Ford Mondeo & cannot praise the Mondeo enough. In over 10 years I have never had any problems & have not had to spend one penny on the cars other than regular servicing and consumables.
Road holding is excellent and the Mondeo is a true drivers car. I love mine, it is comfortable and economical (diesel) for a car of its size. A practical car with a big boot & with the back seats down, I have not yet found anything I wanted to carry that will not fit in.
Would strongly recommend anyone who has not looked at Ford recently to seriously consider them at they have moved on so far from their old UK image (& the cortina/capri days).
More space than star trek
FORD MONDEO 2.0 TDCi Titanium  5dr Powershift (Review date: 8th October '12)
Excellent seats with plenty of room front rear and boot. 46 mpg in mixed use and a smooth automatic which does not seem to drain much power. plenty fast enough for a family car. Road noise is a bit intrusive on rough surfaces but no worse than any other main stream car. Ride on 45 profile tyres can be a bit jolty on poorly maintained roads but is very comfortable on motorways and main roads
All in all a very good buy
FORD MONDEO 2.0 TDCi Zetec 5dr (Review date: 29th September '12)
Mines a Zetec 2.0 TDCi with Sport Pack. Its quite a rare model adding 18" Alloys, stiffer suspension and a rear spoiler which sets it apart from other Zetecs. Its well worth trying to source one of these as they ride so much better than the standard version with 16" wheels.
The Mondeos biggest attraction is the amount of space inside, it easily seats 5 adults and consumes a huge amount of luggage as well. Front seats are comfortable with plenty of thigh support and rear seat passengers have an abundance of legroom regardless of the position of the front seats demonstrating the thought that Ford had put into making sure the Mondeo really is the ideal family car.
Inside the controls are well positioned and the 'Voice Activation' system is efficient and especially useful for the radio / cd functions. The only slight criticism of the interior is the cheap feel to the glovebox, its neither dampened or easy to access from the drivers seat. Everything else though feels durable and of good quality. The bluetooth facility also functions well and is a great thing to have when you need to make or anwer a call.
Outside the Mondeo is pleasant on the eye and theres a real solid feel to the doors and tailgate, everything closes with a clunk - it's not a 'tinny' car at all. One gripe is the bonnet that when raised relies on a ' stay rod' which feels barely adequate to support the weight. Gas struts would of been better.
The diesel engine and 6 speed box certainly suit the car, the 2litre diesel with 138bhp and manual box is definately the best combination with pucnhy acceleration from rest and in motion, overtaking is an absolute breeze. Fuel consumption on a mixture of A and B class roads averages 46mpg but easily tops 50mpg on the motorway and with emissions under 140g the road tax is a bit cheaper too. Handling is also a Mondeo strong point and the car sticks to the road in most conditions however its a big car and budget branded tyres dont do it any favours. Stick to well known tyres such as Michelin and enjoy the overall experience.
Try one. Its the best Mondeo yet.
FORD MONDEO 1.6 EcoBoost Zetec 5dr [Start Stop] (Review date: 14th August '12)
had a di esel mondeo before but thought i would try a petrol version this time, so i bought the 1.6 ecoboost, and i couldnt be more pleased with it. the power from a 1.6 is amazing and the petrol consumption is really good. the stop/start is brilliant.
the reason i bought another mondeo is simple its the best car for its size and price on the road.
build quality is good.
comfort is good.
boot is huge
interior is spacious and a nice place to sit.
the only regret i have is not getting parking sensors back and front,and folding mirrors,[these should be standard anyway]. i will make sure i get them next time.
overall a brilliant car to own.
Great all rounder
FORD MONDEO 2.0 TDCi Zetec 5dr (Review date: 31st May '12)
Ubiquitous it may be, but the Mondeo 2.0 diesel Zetec is simply a fantastic all round family car. We replaced a VW Touran 2.0 TDi with the Mondeo and the Ford is in a different class, most surprisingly perhaps in perceived build quality; the Touran always shuddered and shook on anything but the smoothest roads, whereas the Ford feels particularly well screwed together. The Mondeo is a surprisingly large car (marginally longer and wider than a W211 E Class Merc) and this translates into loads of space all round, with great rear legroom and a vast boot, even on the hatch. Handling is very fluid - not quite as firm as I'd like but a good compromise and it demonstrates great suppleness over the broken B roads typical around here - this can actually make it a faster ground coverer than, say, a 3 series M-Sport BMW, which forces you to back off before your head smashes into the rooflining. It has a wonderful driving position too (I'm 6'3'').
Cheap to service, fuel (ave. 45mpg) and insure. In summary, a superb all round car. Don't be ashamed of driving it!
over complicated car , could have been a classic !
FORD MONDEO 2.0 TDCi 115 Titanium 5dr (Review date: 27th March '12)
Ok so I had one of these for 6 months... first the MAJOR negative. After 2 months it started cutting out totally randomly as I approached juntions/lights leaving me no power steering of assisted brakes VERY dangerous. then after 4 months it started loosing power with an engine malfunction light randomly every few days then eventually to point I could not drive. Stopping and starting again made the car run for a while so SOFTWARE !!! yes it was , it cost me £60 for what should have been a recall. So I will never buy another ford again. plus points : roomy, practical, mushy drive but curiously involving, good engine ( mechanically ) , great styling, quality cabin in parts. Finally I must say ford are incredible....this car is very close to being a classic, but too many stupid stupid stupid shortcuts mean off I go to toyota. I really tried to love this car and it is GREAT to drive when it works but why the hell should I pay for a software upgrade to keep the car running !? Was a technical designer at Fords drunk when they thought that was not daylight robbery for customers !?!?
mondeo start stop.
FORD MONDEO 1.6 EcoBoost Zetec 5dr [Start Stop] (Review date: 12th March '12)
this is my second mk4 mondeo i decided this time to go back to petrol from diesel nothing wrong with diesel i just dont do enough miles. ive read reports on the new ecoboost engines so i thought i would try one.
160bhp from a 1.6 engine more power than 2.0 diesel and you can tell [its quick]. but its also quiet.
comfort is still good, build quality is good. i still think this car is better than some people say. but the best thing is the start stop its great, it makes the car even better knowing your not wasting fuel while sitting in a queue or at traffic lights.
the car is a big car so it can be awkward to park so parking sensors would be a must , these maybe should be standard.
the boot is huge and with the rear seats down you can fit almost anything in,having a caravan this suits my needs easily.
overall great car.
FORD MONDEO 2.0 TDCi Zetec 5dr Auto (Review date: 27th February '12)
First impressions count especially where cars are concerned,and the Mondeo felt exactly right the moment I sat behind the wheel.The seats are very comfortable,and the switches are all well placed with a nice quality feel to them.There's ample room for four adults,with the back seat passengers enjoying a generous amount of legroom and headroom.(better than the Insignia and Citroen C5).The boot is enormous and the car comes with split folding rear seats.
Then the best bit begins,as you start it up, and quietly glide down the road in a manner I would normally associate with say Jaguar or Mercedes.The refinement is very impressive-even at speed there's little road or wind noise,and the engine is very quiet. You are cossetted, and I recall one magazine suggesting that if your passengers were blindfolded they would think they were in a much more up market car. A very pleasant way to travel.
So if you don't believe me read the Top Gear review (even Jeremy Clarkson rates this car highly),as does What Car,who regard it as the top family car. If there's a better one for similar money I'd like to know.
Can't fault it !. Well done Ford.
Ford Mondeo - Super Family Car
FORD MONDEO 2.0 TDCi Titanium X 5dr  Auto (Review date: 8th February '12)
I'm not a car person. Up until we bought the Mondeo I could probably tell you the colour of our car but that's it. I love this car! It's spacious enough for my 6' 4" husband, me and our two children. It's great to drive - love the parking sensors! Plenty boot space and comfortable inside.
It is a bit more expensive to run than I had hoped - it's a diesel engine and the price of diesel seems to be outpacing petrol! It's also not great in the snow, but I try to avoid driving in the snow anyway!
Highly recommend the Mondeo as a great all round family car.
