1995 Ford Mondeo LX 1.8 16V petrol from UK and Ireland
Surges during deceleration - sometimes violently (not resolved).
Leak into passenger footwell (not reported - life's too short!).
Pulls to left without warning; heavy tyre wear (not resolved).
Starter motor makes metallic scraping/shrieking noise on disengagement in wet weather (not yet reported).
Central locking failed (about 5 times).
Dashboard lighting failed totally.
Rear brake light bulb failed (fixed myself).
Rattle from tailgate (fixed myself).
Carpet falling off from behind one of the back seats (again, life's too short ...)
I tried to get this car replaced under the Ford Committment scheme, but failed. I am dissatisfied with the car and more so with the manufacturer.
It also guzzles fuel at an alarming rate. Nice audio equipment, though.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
