    My car

    This is my second mondeo, the first being my 06 ST220 hatchback which I had for 3 years and couldn't fault. Having owned the car for over 2 years I thought I'd write a realistic review. The mondeo mk4 is a good, mechanically reliable car which hasn't let me down yet. The equipment levels are excellent although I miss the FULL electric seats from my ST, this Titanium X Sport has only electronic height adjustment, bit pointless IMO if you have to manually adjust both back and leg reach. I love the DAB stereo and have retrofitted USB bluetooth module to it to gain usb and bluetooth streaming (not standard until 2010/11). It has a ridiculously big boot which is great for family on trips away. The car handles well for its size and is nippy, not like the ST but it'll do given I wanted something more economical. My main gripes with it are the build quality, economy for a diesel and tyre wear. The bodywork is so thin compared to the mk3 the wind could dent it. It seems to me like Ford built this on a budget, e.g. the mk3 had hydraulic arms to hold bonnet, mk4 back to basics lift bonnet yourself. Running costs wise, I've never owned a car that munches through front tyres like this, you will be lucky to get 10k out of them regardless of brand (I've tried conti, dunlop and goodyear) The ST tyres lasted 20k by comparison (similar 18"). On mix of 50% B and motorway I only get 35MPG. I'll get 39 on a run, bit disappointing though.

    To finish on a positive, I've had no major bills other

    My car

    My third Mondeo estate, so clearly I am not an original thinker. This is just to say that the 2.2 litre diesel really transforms the car. Whether the 19" wheels are practical remains to be seen in terms of tyre wear and the risk of kerb scrapes - the ground clearance also needs a measure of respect. But as a car to cover a lot of motorway miles in, it is simply delightful. The touch screen satnav is by far the best that I have used, the Convers information display is clear and not distracting, the wide tyres give all the grip I am ever likely to need and you don't need to remember that you are driving an estate. Noise level in the cabin seems well down compared to my last car - a 2009 2 litre. Fuel consumption seems disappointing at the moment but I will know more presently.

    My car

    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.
