What's the used Ford Mondeo like?
You won't find a more enjoyable family car to drive for the money. The Mondeo was the class of the field in its day, and even now its responses feel sharp and rewarding.
The ride quality may seem a little firmer than some of its rivals', but it takes very poor surfaces to really upset its composure. It remains unruffled at motorway speeds, too, and will cruise at the legal limit all day long in hushed calm, although the diesel models are noisier than the free-revving petrol units.
The driving position should prove comfortable for most people, the controls are a model of sensible design and there's sufficient space for three abreast in the rear. The middle-rear passenger will have a three-point belt on all versions, too. This saloon model has a big boot, but it can't match the hatchback for ultimate practicality.
