    My car

    1999 T reg Mondeo LX Verona. I don't like that they put very uncomfortable seats in it, the back seats don't even have headrests, and the quality of the plastics is terrible

    I thought that my N reg Ford Mondeo GLX 2.0 that I used to have was a lot better - this one didn't even have a CD player as standard, so I had to go to Halfords and buy a Kenwood one for £100.

    The engine is ok but sometimes when I'm going up hills the gearbox starts to make a burning smell. However, I haven't spent much of my money for new things for it and apart from the ash tray breaking, nothing has broken.

    My car

    I've had this car for over 2 years now and have been very impressed. Other than a glow plug, nothing has failed on it in 22,000 miles. The handling is brilliant, and it's well equipped what with AirCon, ABS, CD changer and heated leather seats. Fuel consumption can be a bit heavy - I only get 380 miles to a tank if I use lead boots, but with more careful driving it's easy to get that figure over the 550 mile mark.

    My only complaints are its lack of power (but then I never expected it to match up to my old Petrol Montego Turbo !) and the driver's leg-room, at 6ft 3" it's a little bit on the cramped side for me - I keep thinking the seat isn't quite fully back, especially compared to my wife's Astra.

    Nevertheless, it's definitely the best car I've had and I'll be keeping it for a few more years yet.

    My car

    We have had our 1998 Mondeo for over 5 years now and it has proved to be an utterly reliable, comfortable car with reasonable running costs for its size. Average 38mpg motorway driving, it has never let us down, comfortable seats and a good sized boot. Honestly cant think of anything negative about it at all. Had a nearly new C-Max which gave far more problems than this old Mondeo - would thoroughly recommend it to anyone wanting a good, cheap, comfortable family car.

    My car

    Owned the car for 7 years.In that time covered 52000 miles.Never let me down.Comfortable drive,reasonable running costs and spacious cabin.

    Highly recommended as a good reliable family car.Not worth trading in as I am lucky to get £950 for it now.Why spend 9k on another Mondeo when I should another two years motoring from this car.
