After four years and 115,000 miles - MPG will be between 45mpg if really caning it and 67mpg doing a stately 50 on a motorway.
No maintenance issues with the car itself.
The optional radar assisted cruise control is great when it works - which it very often does not. This has been a running battle for as long as I have had the car.
Loads of room, nice to drive, surprisingly easy to park, good towing vehicle.
This is my second and I'll probably get a third.
I have had my car for nearly 3 years, having bought it as an ex demo. It is one of the best cars I've had, nothing has gone wrong with it in 40000 miles of driving. The only regret I have is having the 18" alloys, they make for a hard ride and having driven a similar car with 17" alloys the ride was much better and little difference in handling, the bigger alloys look good but I'd stick with the smaller size. Economy is excellent for the size of car, with mixed driving I average around 48mpg. On long motorway journeys keeping to 70mph I can get around 54 - 55mpg which is excellent. I have to say that the economy has got better with age. Ford dealers can be mixed, but I use a small independant Ford dealer in Clitheroe who I find to be very good. Overall very pleased with this car and can thoroughly recommend it.
An update on the mpg on the Mondeo Estate Titanium 163ps. Come each summer, regularly drive in Europe, covering about 2,000 miles, fully laden car. Previous 2.2d managed just under 45mpg on this run, with this including bursts up to 130mph and regular 'cruising' at 100mph, where legal in Germany.
This summer's holiday took in France and Spain, at all times sticking to the legal speed limit, mainly motorway driving. MPG of 41.9 is a pretty poor show (and not down to 'driving style', given comments above). Come on Ford, with the likes of BMW, Audi offering much more fuel efficient engines, isn't it about time you followed suit?
p.s. I note that Ford seem to have recently tweeked their engine for the 2.0d, giving lower emissions of 129, compared to 139 on my November 2011 model. Will this make any difference to the mpg? Shame it is too late for me.
I have just traded in my Peugeot 407 2.0 Diesel for this 2.5T Petrol Mondeo Titanium X. When i bought the 407 i was made up with it, i said i would never go back to petrol now i can average 45mpg. I was keen to buy a Mondeo as soon as i saw the pictures, but thought i'd leave it 18 months and get a nearly new one. I wanted the new 2.2 Diesel model but was amazed at the price difference, when i could get a 2.5T petrol for £4000 less! I found a top spec 2.5T one at a Ford Dealer and only payed £12,500 which is less than half what it cost new, i do about 15,000 miles a year and don't really think the 2.2TDCi will ever pay for itself, as good as it is. I am really pleased with my decision, OK i have to fill up more but i have missed the sound of a good petrol engine, and at least now when i fill up i never have to smell the smell of diesel! I am now on 11,000 miles and everything is OK, i have no faults, and i love all the technology on my model. the sat nav is much better than the awful system Peugeot put in their 407s.
