2001 Ford Mondeo Ghia X 2.5L V6 from UK and Ireland
Motorway cruiser that can also do a good job off them
Both rear seized handbrake cables replaced at 40,000 miles.
Rear sub frame replaced at 40,000 miles due to shot bushes.
Luckily both were changed under warranty, but I hope that the new sub frame lasts a little longer!
The car is extremely quick mid range. i.e. 60 mph to 90 mph, but is not as responsive at lower engine speed as my Nissan Qx was.
It handles really well for a car of it's size and is an extremely comfortable ride for a family of 4.
I am not too pleased with the climate control as it appears to keep the car too hot or too cold!
Fuel consumption averages 28mpg and rises to 31mpg on motorway runs.
Lots of electrics to play with as well!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
