    My car

    After 40,000 hard miles I am having concerns regarding the build quality of the car. There has been a serious problem with the brake servo and now one of the suspension units has failed resulting in a load knocking sound over bumps. As usual the local Ford dealer was totally incapable of solving the problem at the first/second/third attempt. The road noise which was a problem with the original tyres has been reduced by fitting Continental tyres, which have also contributed to improved fuel consumption of up to 50mpg. Space and practicality is first class and if we have a lot of equipment to carry, the Mondeo is used rather than the relatively tiny Audi A6 Avant

    My car

    having had this car for 4 weeks now and driven 1200 miles i,ve found it a delight to drive its comfortable and quiet but compared to the older mondeo a tad slower response wise. but still you can,t have everything and as a driver who does 45 to 50,000 miles a year i have a feeling that its going to be every bit as good a work horse as the old 54 reg mondeo i,ve just got rid of which did 140,000 without any major problems

    My car

    I am impatiently awaiting delivery of this car. Unfortunately it's a three month wait! I had extended test drives in a wide range of similarly priced cars including Passat 170, BMW 3 series touring, Saab 93, Honda Accord and Honda CRV. The Mondeo beat them all on every count. The drive is sharp and involving but also very comfortable on long journeys, including motorway driving. The model I drove and the one I have ordered have the sports suspension and I certainly didn't experience any of the "fidgetiness" reported by some test drivers. Optional parking sensors, however, are a must because of the car's size. Interior is excellent and the car looks great. I can't wait!

    My car

    My first meeting with the new Mondeo was at the What Car Readers' Preview earlier in the year, and it was everything I'd hoped it would be. Just as well really, having placed a pre-order for one as my next company hack! Well I waited and waited and eventually it was delivered on 6th September, since when I've covered 6000 miles in it. Mine's the Zetec wagon in White Grape (gold) with Sport pack and gangster glass (my god it's dark!) I must say, the car looks amazing, both as you walk up to it and once inside. The cabin is in a different league from the old model and I reckon gives Audi, BMW and Jag something to think about - certainly in terms of what you get for your money. On the downside I have had one problem and two niggles. The problem was the airbag light came on after four weeks - turned out that I'd been keeping my mobile in the centre cupholder and it had been interfering with the airbag module right below it. Got the module changed and a hands free kit fitted - job done. The niggles - well the sports suspension feels a tad hard when the car's empty, but I'll get used to that. Secondly the mpg is nowhere near what it should be. I know diesels can take a while to break in but even now I'm struggling to get 39mpg! Something to get checked I think... Anyway, I'm off for a drive now - for the fun of it! Yay!
