    My car

    I have owned this car for 2 months and so far it has been trouble free motoring.I must disagree with the earlier review that stated this car was no better than previous model. I previously owned a 2 litre TDCI Ghia x for over 3years which I thought was a good car until I got this one who needs a german badge on the bonnet when Ford can produce a car like this. Only negitive point I have found is the same as the other owners said rain water getting in to tailgate. So come on FORD come up with a fix ASAP to make this great car better.

    I'm I alone in thinking the new Jaguar XF looks very similar to the new mondeo? I'm so suprised all previous reviewers & the press etc have not noticed this similarity. If you have time open both car reviews up, go to the photo section and compare them. The rear & side profiles are identical- looks like the handles are too? Forget the Jag, go half price and get the mondeo!

    My car

    Some reviews have rated this car as good as BMW's. Well having driven and owned recent BMW's and Audi's, I strongly disagree with these opinions. No way can you compare the cabin quality to an Audi or BMW. Its tacky, poorly finished and below eye level positivly "low rent". Check for yourself, go and sit in a BMW or Audi and see the difference! I have just hired a 2.olitre Zetec and driven 500mls over mixed road types.

    The good points; excellent ride on all surfaces with little road noise, excellent 2.0 L TDCI oil burner engine, precise gearbox. Excellent acceleration, confortable seats, roomy, huge boot, very sure footed and safe to drive.

    Bad points; rattles inside after only 6K miles in the dashboard area, trim adrift, poor quality hard plastic used, tailgate on hatch is very heavy to lift. Doors are also very heavy to shut. CD / Radio sound quality poor, Sony upgrade is better. Lifting objects from the back of the boot results in dirty clothing from rear bumper because its so deep. Reflections in windscreen and door mirrors from internal chrome trim. Parking it can be problem, you really need parking sensors or put up with scratches. Door mirrors are a bit small.

    Good try Ford, but prefer VW Passat quality even if engine isn't as good as in Mondeo. Will stick with my BMW 3 series thanks.

    My car

    I bought the previous model about 5 years ago and it has been a big disappointment. In the 3 years covered by the warranty it had several major repairs carried out, including a new fly wheel, power steering components and a host of other niggling small problems. Since the warranty finished I have replaced a fuel injector (£450.00), Cam belt sensor (£150.00) another set of power steering components (£270.00). I have now covered 79K and have lost all faith in the reliability of this car and have just got rid of it. The final insult on parting company was a depreciation over 5 years from purchase price of 17K to a trade in value of 3K. When choosing a replacement I test drove the new versions and found they were frankly no better. The car is now oversized, overpriced and under powered and am surprised how it manages to win the awards that it does. How can the top of the range be more expensive than the Mercedes C Class, Audi A4 or the BMW 3 Series. These mondeo models are poor and buyers should see through the expense account hype and buy something with better reliabily and residual value.
