1995 Ford Mondeo LX 2.0 from Australia and New Zealand
Good When Everything Works
Lost second gear while driving on highway. Still haven't found it.
Gears ratio's now all over the place, and top speed limited also.
Clutch inside air conditioning compressor.
Front lower control arm suspension bushes.
Remote Central-locking/alarm failure.
Left rear wheel bearing. Not major.
Acceleration, handling, power and economy were all very good until gearbox failure as mentioned above. Petrol usage has now risen by about 20%, and overdrive now limited as it has to cut in so early to cover lost gear. Therefore Revs a lot higher than before, especially over 90Km/Hour.
The Remote Central-locking/alarm failure has caused me a lot of trouble over the past few months. One night it decided not to unlock my car, or turn off the alarm. Hasn't worked since, and am currently driving car without alarm engaged, and am back to opening doors with a key!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
