2000 Ford Mondeo Zetec 2.0 from UK and Ireland
Pretty good all round car
Alloy wheels needed to be replaced due to corrosion around the valve bodies when the car had done 30,000 miles after about 30 months. Ford paid 70% of the cost, but I still had to pay £165, which I think is extremely poor. I do not think it is unreasonable to expect the wheels to last the lifetime of the car. Having looked a t a number of Ford cars with the same 5-spoke alloy wheels there are a lot of drivers who must have the same problem of having to inflate the tyres on a weekly basis.
I have had no reply to a letter to the Ford head office.
My second Mondeo, a reasonable car with plenty of space, pretty good fuel economy (33 +mpg).
Expensive main dealer service costs.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
