2004 Ford Mondeo Ghia TDCi 2.0 130hp turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
When I first bought the car, it would cut out without warning; an AA man fixed it by securing the high pressure bar sensor.
Power steering pump failed at 110k miles.
Water leak in driver's footwell, split door card seal.
All wheel bearings replaced.
Lower front ball joints replaced.
Starter motor replaced at 150k (failed to start at a petrol station).
Rear shock absorber RH replaced at 155k.
Rear coil spring LH replaced at 160k.
Windscreen washer pump replaced at 165k.
This car is a big comfortable family car. I liked the 6-CD player, reversing sensors, comfy seats, 50+ MPG & big boot.
The break downs at the start were pretty scary at times when it cut-out at 50mph on dark country lanes; the lights dim & power steering goes!
The car took us all over the UK & Europe going over the Alps; it was powerful even when fully laden.
The beauty of Ford is the parts are still reasonably cheap. Although this car came with FSH, it still didn't give me confidence; oil & filter changed every 7-8k miles.
When the 6-speed gearbox started whining at 160k miles, it was time for it to go. Luckily no expensive parts failed, so overall it wasn't a bad motor!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
