2004 Ford Mondeo TDCI 130 zetec s estate TDCI 130 from UK and Ireland
Everything that a Bmw has for less money
Air directional controls buttons jammed, fixed under warranty. Very pleased with it and is an all rounder. When at idle an excessive vibration noise from engine bay area is heard with no vibration felt. Does any one else have this problem. Also 18 inch alloys subceptible to knocks because rims pert-rude wider than low profile tyres. had to buy 2 new tyres in 4 months.
Very responsive feel for an estate, air con very good. Excellent family car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I had the idle speed noise cure on my Mondeo 130 TDCI by Moff Motors of Castle Cary in Somerset. They said it was a problem known to Ford and a mod kit of auxiliary drive belts and pulley wheels is available from Ford and can be fixed under warranty. Apparently, at a certain engine speed, one of the drive belts for the alternator/power steering pump (can't remember which) tends to move slightly from side to side and creates a 'rumble' type noise.
Problem totally cured!!!
