I can't believe I was considering the ugly 'super-sized' Mondeo. Thank God I came to my senses..
Absolutely nothing to date.
I've had this car a little over 2 months, and in that time, I've covered over 4,100 miles. I really like it.
It is finished in stormy blue metallic; extras fitted include chrome door mirror housings, rear wing spoiler, front Sport grille and MPS-style gear knob. It also has a great looking set of 17" alloy wheels.
The interior is well made, no rattles or squeaks, although some of the plastics do feel a bit on the cheap side and the door-mounted speakers cause vibration in the door card (depends on how much bass you like...). Having said that, it's unobtrusive and the sound from the stock stereo is excellent.
Performance is impressive; doesn't feel, or sound, like a diesel. In fact, it's easy to forget you're in a diesel powered car until you glance at the fuel gauge and struggle to remember the last time you stopped to fill up!
It's also a good looking car which has that Lexus look about it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
