What used Ford Mondeo hatchback will I get for my budget?
Older Mondeos with super-high mileages are available for a couple of hundred pounds, but this third-generation car starts at about £1800 for examples that haven't quite been to the moon and back. Expect to pay between £2000 and £4000 for a car with an average mileage for the year, a full service history and one bought from an independent dealer.
At the other end of the scale, you’ll pay about £10,000 for a late, low-mileage 2.2-litre diesel in range-topping Titanium X specification. Alternatively, for about £5,000, you can have a 2013 car with an average mileage.
