    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.

    My car

    Very impressive to drive, firmer ride with sport suspension (£150 option) but still comfortable. Cruises quietly, very stable. Have the Ghia, wood trim a bit naff, but doesn't reflect sunlight like other models. Can't get cool air to face, warm air to feet. Tailgate pours water (Lots) into boot when opened. Excellent seats, masses of space, and quality better than wife's BMW 5 series in some areas. I Wish it had a German badge, it really is that good.

    My car

    I have owned this car 5 months and done 1200 miles.

    The brakes are terrible, it's impossible to pull up gently without them grabbing. Jerky gearchanges with the autobox. Cheap uncomfortable seats same as used on other models (Focus,Fiesta). Bombs along the motorway ok, which i don't often do. Front visibility poor due to front windscreen pillars. Not very smooth engine. Be glad to see the back of it even if i lose £7000 for the six months I have owned it

    My car

    i have owned this car for 2 weeks and love it. {nearly more than my wife.} it as everything you could want in a car, so all my freinds tell me the nearest i will come to a aston martin as the stylish front is very similar. The power,smooth gearbox,interior, right down to the nice touch led ambient lighting at night is quite superb. forget the very expensive bmw,s and audi,s the £16400 i gave for my 3 month old ghia would not buy a 2yr old audi with same spec. only blemish on this superb motor would have to be as others have pointed out that when you open the tailgate on a rainy day water goes into the boot, but the joy of driving it outways this minor problem.
