    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.

    My car

    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.

    My car

    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.
