2000 Ford Mondeo GLX 2.0 petrol from UK and Ireland
Misfire - HT leads replaced.
Locks a bit temperamental.
Air con was useless, never worked during my ownership. But it was 10 years old at this point, probably needed a re-gas.
Cosmetic rust, acceptable at age and mileage.
Normal wear and tear - brakes, suspension, servicing, battery, etc.
Loved this Mondeo. Last of the MK2 shape. One of the most reliable cars I ever had. Despite warnings from friends not to touch Fords, it gave me nothing beyond the normal wear and tear, and some minor faults expected as the age and miles rose, it never let me down.
2.0 GLX model is nothing special, but much better to drive and be in than a base 1.6 model. Engine was fast and economical (for its time) and the car was well equipped with the usual electronics. Very spacious. I liked driving it, smooth and quiet.
Sold back in 2018 at 18 years old with 150K on it still going strong.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
