1998 Ford Mondeo LX 1.8 petrol from UK and Ireland
A good car let down by bad dealers
Rear windscreen wiper failed at 9,000 miles.
Air conditioning malfunctioned at 15,000 miles.
Gearbox became increasingly stubborn after 20,000 miles.
Brake pads wore out and had to be changed after 14,000 miles and again after 26,000 miles.
Reliability wasn't too bad considering high mileage.
Worst thing about the Mondeo was the dismal dealer service.
But the Mondeo's good points outweighed its bad points.
Interior was spacious and comfortable.
Ride and handling were both very good.
1.8 engine gave decent performance.
Fuel bills were inexpensive for a 1.6.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
