2010 Ford Mondeo Titanium 2.0 TDCi from UK and Ireland
OK if you want reliable basic transport
Not much beyond the usual wear and tear (servicing, brakes, tyres, exhaust, etc), I look after the car as much as possible, and it was a full history and looked after car upon purchase.
Cosmetically looking a lot rougher now, but it is over 10 years old.
I like my Mondeo, very spacious and comfortable car to be in. The car is massive, can be a pain to park though, especially on UK roads and tiny parking places.
2.0 turbo diesel performs very well though not quite as good on fuel as I had hoped - really struggles for 50 MPG. You need an endless motorway and cruise set at around 65 mph to get anything over 50 MPG. Still it is a nice car to drive.
Not much more can be said about it, a boring family car is the Mondeo, and always has been. Faster versions might be a different story. And maybe petrol's would be more interesting. I am selling mine soon as I go past the infamous 100K mark due to hearing horror stories at this point of broken turbos, DPF's, injectors and all the usual expensive diesel repairs; thankfully mine has been OK so far though.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Am I the only one who thinks that Ford dropped the ball with the Mondeo in the last decade? I'm not saying the Mk4 Mondeo and the Mk5 are bad cars, but in the old days, the difference between a Mk3 Mondeo and a Vectra was night and day, but now the difference between a Mondeo and an Insignia is... Nil.
It's like Ford has given up... And they have indeed given up on the Mondeo, because by 2022, the Mondeo is no more. It will be replaced by a "coupé crossover".
