Sporty looks with diesel power
It blew a hole in a turbo boost hose 6 days after purchase. This is due to oil in the pipework which eventually rots the rubber and makes it weak. Common on Mondeos and Transits with this engine. 10 minutes to fix.
Nothing else to report.
After owning a Mazda 6, the Mondeo does not feel as good to drive or as well built; the handling on the Mazda was first class.
However the Mazda was petrol and the Mondeo is diesel, so is obviously much better on fuel, but not as good as some of the other claims on here ie 34 round town. I must admit I do drive my cars hard though.
The Mondeo does look good with the 18 inch wheels and body kit. Its company owner has looked after it well and it would pass for 50000 when clean; the interior is like new.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
