    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!

    My car

    If you buy this car be prepared for complete strangers to come up to you and gaze admiringly at it, I own the estate version with the zetec sports pack in sea grey and it looks stunning. Not only is it big but it can shift and overtaking is effortless and leaves you with a big grin on your face. Small problem though, if you like a clean licence use the standard cruise control as you can be at 90mph in the blink of a flashing blue light. The inside is sumptious and the whole thing is as quiet as a church mouse, even at high speeds. Best things about it, I drive a car that was driven by 007, it looks the part, people constantly stop and stare at it, it is a seriously fantastic car that will be asking Audi BMW and Mercedes why they can't produce a similiar car for the same money. If you do nothing else in your life drive the new Ford Mondeo, better still buy one and start enjoying life again!!!!
