    My car

    Having part exchanged my rover 25, for my new 54 plate mondeo, i was quite surprised by the feel of quality of the interior, have owned the car now 2 years, and brought it with 21000 miles on the clock, i have nearly doubled that now, great car. very reliable, only had rear springs changed on MOT, flew through the first one, the only problem is heavy fuel consumption, probably due to my heavy right foot, and during a driving holiday to southern spain last sept, i found the seat cushion on the drivers seat to uncomfotable, on long journeys. but thats the only niggle! great car, wel equiped, looks great in silver, and id recommend a mondeo to anyone, in fact the best car ive owned so far!

    My car

    Great car. in the last five years of ownership only a fuel pump replaced, not bad over 79k miles. no rattles from or anything fallen off this car. unlike our vectra (see report). ordered a new Mondeo as company car and from the reports i have read and have been told by work mates its a cracking car.

    thinking of replacing our vectra with new focus as well.

    My car

    I have owned the Zetec-S version of the TDCI Mondeo for 7 months now on a 53 plate. What a bargain at a shade under £7k for a car that had done just under 30,000 miles. Since then I have added 12000 to the clock and spend surprisingly little time at the petrol station! In town, yes, I am the annoying bloke who accelerates slowly, but trust me, if you play the "2000 game" as I call it, you will average some serious MPG!! (remain under 2000 rpm in gears 1 through 4) I have a mixture of town driving (20-30 miles a day) plus 60 a day on the motorway and I get around 550-600 miles a tank from brim-full to bottom end of warning light. I regularly drive to the north-east and have managed 720 miles on one tank of motorway driving at just under 70mph - Astonishing!!

    As for ride, the zetec-s does have the big 18" rims and can be a bit firm, but I don't mind that at all. It feels like a much smaller car to drive, zipping around corners and sticking to the road very well. On the rare occasions I do bury my foot into the firewell, the car is adequately nippy, and even with 4 fat mates in tow, the massive torque just keeps giving!!

    Servicing from my local independent is cheap as chips (£140) and touch wood, no mechanical or electrical issues to date (although i think the air con may no longer work, possibly due to the fact that I tried to turn it on for the first time in 5 months and it didn't seem to do much!)
