    My car

    Approaching the end of the first year of ownership. Very pleased with the car. At first the size and six speed gearbox took a little bit of getting used to but it's a lovely car to drive. Out of town it glides along very smoothly and despite its size it's quite agile in town. Have done about 1000 miles per month which is why I opted for a petrol engine. So far no signs of any faults and everything has worked properly. Another car where the journalists positive reviews are completely justified. Great value for money.

    My car

    Just completed 100k miles in my company Mondeo which I've had for just over two years and am still delighted with it. No rattles, no squeaks and never anything other than services make me take it to the garage. Mine's an auto and it's very smooth and responsive. I have nothing but praise for this car, it's amazing how well put together it is, way better than the Passat I had before which spent a lot more time being mended during the 160k miles I drove it for. I can't really comment on running costs but a shame it has to be serviced every 12.5k miles whereas the Passat before was every 18k, that may explain why things went wrong more often however. It's a workhorse and spends most of the time on motorways and is exceptionally comfortable on any journey distance. Pick your Ford dealer for servicing carefully though, have tried a couple of larger ones who were very poor, now use a Ford Retail dealer near Swindon and they are brilliant; polite, helpful and, most importantly, wash and hoover the car! Hope the Mondeo will be on my company car list when I come to choose a replacement, can't see me not having another.

    My car

    Owned for 1 year, as family runabout

    Pros good size, general build quality, powershift gearbox, good to drive, low costs

    Cons handling slighly skittish on choppy roads, nothing major to worry about though. some of the padding is visible around rear seats, should be fitted more effectivly No seat height adjust on passenger side on Titanium model, quite annoying for me not very exciting but does exactly was it says omn the tin

    a good able car so far, powershift gearbox works well with 42 mpg for 2.0D around town longest drive was 300 miles, no probs im 6'3". Recommended

    My car

    Had this car now for 7 months and 11000 miles (mainly motorway) and have been nothing but completely satisfied with it. My only gripes would be due to poor road conditions and having the 18" wheels with sports pack. However, in saying what it lacks in comfort over hard bumps it makes up in road handling. Personally I think a lot of previous reviewers are subject badge snobbery. I have not experienced any of the faults as previous reviews have stated, maybe they bought "monday morning or Friday afternoon" cars. My tyres still look like new and i'm quite pleased with fuel economy. Currently around the 47-48 mpg mark. A well driven car will give great return. Don't discount this car as it will give so called prestige marques a run for their money. Personally I'd rather keep the extra thousands in my pocket. All in all a good workhorse and a pleasure to drive.
