    My car

    the car is grand out nothing special. i went from a Primera t-spec (i miss the reversing camera and heated leather seats) to this Mondeo titanium because the Primera was actually way too small for me to even sit into. the car is an Irish car on a 2008 KY plate in metallic black with a 2.0 TDCI 140 BHP engine. the car is huge and has a lot of standard kit. the bad things are a few design flaws here and there like the heated windscreen takes ages to clear, the boot lets loads of water leak into the boot wetting my golf bag :( (which you can fit 4 of in here) and water is blown from the windscreen onto the side windows which is annoying if a passenger is smoking when it is raining. I don't like the look of the dash....the sony radio looks too after market and it looks cheep with all the titanium affect metal surrounding it. the climate control is useless it gets hot very hot but when you want cold it only gets cool which is annoying with the 4 hot days of summer we get here in ireland. the car is well planted on the road nothing like my brothers 318d but still very good for such a massive car .overall it's good but there are much better cars on the road which is why when i trade in in the next few months im not buying again, im going to look at the Insignia new Passat and the C5 for its comfort (mondeo has lots of road noise and with my optional 18' 5 spokes the tyre roar is horrible) so if you want a nice cars this is nice but thats about it...

    My car

    I have a Mondeo Ghia 2.0 TDCI Hatchback I am happy with car apart from when it has been raining and you open the boot the water runs off the back window straight in to the boot leaving it constanly wet.The only other niggle I had was the engine kept cutting out whilst changing down to second gear this however has now been sorted which just leaves the annoying water problem.

    My car

    i have owned this car 6 months covering 10000 miles, i find it fantastic to drive and very powerful.the cabin has some great gadgets if they all work which they dont always. the voice activation doesnt seem to understand english no matter how clearly or loudly you speak. the auto headlights malfunction despite being back to ford twice. the rear window was faulty, although ford managed to fix this. i hate the fact that if you open the drivers window an inch when its raining rain pours in like a waterfall all over the electric window controls, and when you open the boot in the same conditions whatever you had in there is soon swimming in water.the tyres are down to the wear limiters already and im not a wheel spinner i think this is premature considering the replacment cost of the same tyre is around £180 each.the windscreen wipers are not allowed to be pulled away from the screen because if you do, you take the paint off the bonnet, although maybe this is a fault isolated to my own car. all this said, i still love mondeo it has good fuel economy and its very pokey. and the handling is pretty good.
