1999 Ford Mondeo ST24 2.5 V6 from UK and Ireland
Quick, comfortable, superb engine. Bargain!!!
The wind-screen washer system keeps leaking, cured in about 20 minutes, but very annoying.
Quick in a straight line, superb, smooth, gutsy engine. Handles well although the extra weight over my old 405 mi16, is really noticeable.
Took me a while to like this car, although I can now see it for what it is, a comfortable, quick, enjoyable family car, which as far as I can see is the bargain of the decade (I paid £10,500, for a 14 month old car with 15,000 miles on it from a dealer).
P.S. mine is in light metallic Amparo Blue, which is the best colour I have seen for an ST24, please comment if you have the same colour, also any handling or performance mods that would help.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Amparo blue makes the 24 look amazing.
Vortech do a supercharger kit for the Contour Duratecs in the states which adds about 85bhp. Depends how mad you wana go? Otherwise better air filters etc. all add to a little more performance.

Yes, I believe the Mondeo ST24 is a fab car, but I disagree with your colour choice because mine is panther black, and the comments that I have received back me up on my choice.
