My review of a year with a Ford Mondeo
FORD MONDEO 2.0 TDCi Zetec 5dr (Review date: 13th April '14)
I bought this car from V12 Classic car sale in Hinckley in April 2013.I have found this car very reliable and also very comfortable to drive. It is not the fastest car on the road but I don`t need it to be fast. I drive 55 miles aday to work and it has performed this task very well. I find motorway driving a pleasure.I would highly recommend this car for the person looking for a car to drive a family around as it has lots of space for passengers.
FORD MONDEO 2.2 TDCi Titanium X Sport 5dr Auto (Review date: 21st January '14)
Had this for a year now and I can't believe how thirsty it is.. 33mpg.. for a diesel. It was recalled for fuel sensor and other issues related to fuel, but despite a full once over ... twice :-) it still drinks like a fish.
I can't work out the concept of a sporty estate... who wants to go earholing down country lanes with a wardrobe in the back?
On motorways it eats the miles and is good around town until it comes into contact with any road that isn't as smooth as a snooker table ... then the stiff suspension and big wheels combine to rattle your teeth.
Its really roomy, I have had a tent and all the parafinalia, two dogs and an inflateable kayak in it and still been able to use one of the rear seats, which is just as well as the roof rack on the TX sport isn't the best.
I think the 2.0 litre manual would most likely have been a better choice, even though I like the ease of an automatic in traffic jams.
The equipment levels are good for the price, but don't expect Audi or BMW levels of sophistication, the build quality is good though.
Not too pleased
FORD MONDEO 2.0 TDCi Titanium X 5dr (Review date: 31st December '13)
I've had this car, a 59 plate for 14 months and wish I'd never bought it. The good parts, it's relatively cheap to maintain and its got a height adjustable passenger seat (needed for my wife who is partially disabled).
The negative parts, economy is poor, at 36 mpg around town (1mpg less than the book says) a good 8 mpg less than the 55 plate Honda Accord 2.2 CDTI Exec. estate with 185,000 miles that I swapped from. Also not as quiet, not as comfortable, not as smooth, not as spacious, not as reliable as the Honda. First problem last winter when it kept cutting out but would restart after standing for 10 min. never found the problem as it rectified in spring.
The service light came on 2,500mls after the 50,000mls service, solved by changing the oil, but came on again after another 2,500mls. Took it into Ford agents who changed the oil again plus a new filter, making 3 oil changes and 2 filters in 5,000mls, no further problem.
Now the passenger side foot well front and back are filling with water, vacuumed it out twice, 6 ltrs each time, but it keeps filling up again. No where else wet, so where it's coming from is a mystery.
Rear doors on both sides btm corner gets pebble dashed so have put reflective tape on to try and prevent it.
Gear change only gets something like smooth when gearbox gets hot so not so good on short local journeys.
Sadly I have to keep this shed for another 2 years or depreciation would be too high.
First Ford for 43 years motoring, definitely the last.
A REALLY GOOD ESTATE CAR
FORD MONDEO 2.0 TDCi Titanium X 5dr  Auto (Review date: 15th December '13)
I have had 6 Audis but tried the Mondeo (to rule it out) and was very impressed. A year on and I love the car , it is better than the Audi A6 in quite a few areas. It is quiet , comfortable, has plenty of power and has more interior / boot space. It has been totally reliable and servicing / parts cost are much less than the Audi.Handling is very good and road bumps are well suppressed.The bells and whistles are great , heated seats and swivel headlights are really useful.
The only downsides are expensive low profile tyres, high RFL and economy around town . On a motorway journey it will do 50mpg but give and take driving gives around 35/38 mpg.
A great car , tyr one , you will love it !
FORD MONDEO 2.2 TDCi Titanium X Sport 5dr Auto (Review date: 21st October '13)
I traded in a 7 series BMW for this car, which was a pre-reg with about 15 miles on the clock. I was looking for comfort, practicality, a good drive and better fuel consumption than the 31 mpg I was getting from the Beamer.
Well, 3 out of four isn't bad, but I have been really disappointed with the Mondeos' mpg ... a measly 33 mpg. I have done long runs on the motorway and some local journeys in the 5000 miles ... both cars were automatics, the BMW was a 3 litre sport, so I can't say it enough... THE MPG IS TERRIBLE ON THE MONDEO 2,2 AUTO!!
I had a 2.2 Mondeo manual hatchback in the past and got 45 mpg so anything over 40 MPG for a newer automatic version would have been OK by me..
The car drives well ... crisp handling, decent (but not great) brakes, smooth and comfortable on motorways, good acceleration. The only downside on the driving front is that the car has lower profile tyres and big wheels which rattle your teeth on anything other than good roads ... avoid potholes and speed bumps if you don't want to visit your dentist too often.
Lastly, the roof bars are not as good as on other versions ... If I get another Mondeo, it will have to be the 2.0 litre deisel ... or better still an Audi A5!!
FORD MONDEO 2.2 TDCi Titanium X 5dr (Review date: 27th September '13)
I have always bought Ford cars for my taxi company until recently when we have to have wheelchair taxis.
First we started with the Ford Cortinas, then the Sierras, Granadas and the Mondeos. I have strayed a few times and had Peugeots, Skoda (Octavia) and Volvos but at the end of the day I just like good practical cars and for years my family cars have been our ex taxis with mileages that look like telephone numbers.
By now I had moved into coaches as well and was paying up to Â£300,000 for a new coach but driving cars with double the miles of a coaches price tag.
Eventually my wife said no more million mile bangers, it's time to look after ourselves.
Being a owner of a transport company and knowing the depreciation of a motor as soon as pulling out of a showroom, I decided to buy a low mileage Ford Mondeo Estate (a practical car). A Ford Mondeo Estate 2.2 TDCi Titanium X.
Oh what a fantastic car to own. On a long journey driven steadily I get over 55mpg. I just sit back in the drivers seat or should I say Armchair with gadgets and cruise along. But when my wife stays at home my armchair becomes a rocket and boy does it leave the rest behind.
I ended up buying a 2006 Mondeo Estate 2.2 Diesel ST (a practical car that went like a rocket)
We had a plan of trading the car in after 3 years and buying another low mileage car.
This we did buying our current car a
Best purchase to date!
FORD MONDEO 2.0 TDCi Titanium X 5dr (Review date: 28th May '13)
Having owned several Audi's and VW's I was looking for a spacious reliable and well built car. My 59 plate Mondeo Titanium X has ticked all of the correct boxes. It drives and handles extremely well, very well spec'd (Half Leather heated seats, 18" Wheels, Adaptive headlights, Sony ICE system with Bluetooth) It was cheaper to buy than the German equivalents and just as well made. My only issue is if you have the window open and its been raining the water just pours off the roof in through the window, apart from this I cannot fault the car whatsoever. I'm no longer a badge snob well done Ford.
FORD MONDEO 2.0 EcoBoost Titanium X 5dr Powershift (Review date: 6th February '13)
My wife has a Ford Mondeo Titanium X auto with sports wheels reg in 2010. She has had the car now for two years and it is superb. The handling is brilliant it is as fast as a Porsche at a fraction of the cost, it has a sat nav system that is faultless, it took us from Cheshire to Nice without missing a single turn off and delivered us to the door of the house that we were staying at. I don't often get to drive the car as I have a company car but when I do drive it I am knocked out by its ability, I love it when some BM or Audi driver gets on my back bumper, I floor the accelerator and leave them in the distance thinking what the %$£"*&%^ was that? Don't hesitate in buying one tou will not regret it.
2012 Estate 20 Ltr Auto (Diesel)
FORD MONDEO 2.0 TDCi 140 Titanium X 5dr Powershift (Review date: 2nd September '12)
This car has replaced my 2006 Mondeo estate, which is now my wifes car, her Mk1 Mondeo estate has now gone to the banger market, this car had severed us very well.
The new car is bigger and the ride is firmer but it does handle better
Just compleated a Devon holiday with 5 people and luggage and it returned 42 MPG..
As you can see we have had Mondeo Estates in the family for 10 years, these cars have proved to be good reliable work horses, I hope the latest one follows on the good work.
the best ford ever
FORD MONDEO 1.8 TDCi Titanium X 5dr  (Review date: 24th February '12)
Ive owned this car for 6 months and cant as yet find a fault. I have just drove to Austria and back a total of 1600 miles with out a blip. it performed on the motor ways of europe and i arrived in austria 670miles later as though i had driven only a couple of hundred miles. The car is used daily for my plumbing buisiness and is roomy and spaciouse also delivering 42 miles to the gallon. I have owned 2 old model mondeo estates which were good and reliable cars but this just seams to be the best yet.
