What's the used Ford Mondeo like?
It's hard to find fault with this Ford Mondeo, because it does everything so well. It's a comfortable cruiser for covering motorway miles, yet it's still great fun to drive. The Mondeo is spacious inside, with loads of head- and legroom for everyone, and it's solid and well put together. Even the entry-level models are well equipped; with air-conditioning, cruise control, electric front windows and a quick-clear windscreen as standard.
The boot is large, well-shaped and easy to get at through the large tailgate, and with the split-folding rear seats down there's a massive 1685-litre area to load up. Unfortunately, the estate version isn't very common on the used market, so you may have to hunt for the right car.
Some people struggle with the size of the Mondeo, and the visibility from the driver's seat doesn't help, because it's hard to judge where the corners are. Running costs should be reasonable, given that the Ford isn't expensive to maintain or run, and depreciation is acceptable if you choose the right models. The car's biggest problem, however, is the stigma that some attach to the Mondeo name.
