Looks Good, Comfy, family sized car.

Takes a lot of fuel!

Well, a couple of years ago, when I desperatly needed a bigger car, I was mostly looking for Vauxalls or Peugots - I even thought about a Honda Jazz - but when I stumbled across this second hand, turqoisey coloured Mondeo, I decided to give it a go! I might as well tell you now, it was quite a...

“What an awesome car!”

published 08/02/2006

awesome amount of space

heavy on the fuel

Before I had this car I was going around in a 1.0l corsa so you can imagine the sudden culture shock when I got behind the wheel of this car. The mondeo I have is the 1995 model with 120k on the clock, so I wasn't expecting much from it. The first thing I noticed was the awesome space in the car;...

“One of the best”

published 18/03/2001

Good engine and Cheap to repair for its size

its expensive to Tax... o well

Back in 1996 i had the need to change my car (Fiat Tipo) due to certain engine problems that i wont go into. After much deliberation i decided to splash out a bit of money and get a larger car to accomodate the growing family commitments i had at the time. During a wet sunday afternoon i wandered...

“Old Faithfull”

published 04/08/2001

Reliable, durable, nice to drive, easy to own

Depreciation

I have had my Mondeo Verona for 5 year now and have overall been very pleased. I bought her new in August 96 just before the Mk2 facelift came about. Local council decided to resurface the roads just after I took delivery and the stone chippings got both headlights (best part of £100 a shot to...

Better quailty from ford

Bland boring and everything i expected

The Ford Mondeo has to be one of the blandest cars on the road, it really stands for all the things I hate about the UK, bland safe golf playing daily mail readers who listen to Radio 2 (daytime) please look away now as its your world I am about to attack. And if you want valve clearances, engine...

“my best ever ford”

published 14/04/2003

Cheap, reliable, low running costs, a must ford.

none to date

I was never really in to fords until I had 2 Sierra’s. I brought my Mondeo Mk2, W reg from a car supermarket, after careful consideration of other makes/models I chose my saloon 1.8 LX because of the spec. It was such a high specification For an LX model, it has, elec windows, mirrors, air con...

Not for me

Gets you from A to B

Bloody uncomfortably

I must start with an apology to all right-minded Mondeo drivers/owners out there. The following rant is a highly personal one, and in no way is intended to be critical of you or your motoring choices. Should you read on, you do so at your own peril, and I can take no responsibility for you coming...

“Another great Mondeo”

published 12/05/2003

Reliable good handling and cheap to run.

Depreciation.

I traded in my old 1.8LX Mondeo last year after 9 very reliable years motoring and 125,000 on the clock. I am now the proud owner of an Xreg (new shape)1.8LX(petrol) hatchback which had 13,500 miles. This cost £8995 but the specification was a revelation. ABS,Power steering,6 airbags,CD player...

Vast boot space, excellent acceleration

Begining to look dated

"But it's a reps car". A voice reverberated around in my head when considering the bright Red 1.8 Mondeo LX in the show room. At the end of the day, the proof is in the pudding, so off i toddled to have a test drive. Looks : (exterior) It looks like a typical sales rep car. Big, king of the large...

handles well, enough porformance, air conditioning

difficult to judge the extremities of the car

A bought the mondeo Verona because I average 35000 miles a year and my old 1.6 k reg mondeo was showing 137,000 on the clock and I felt it was due for replacement. I chose a nice green R registered Verona because I like the price, £7995 (from Dagenham Motors) and decause I like the comfort of the...

I bought this Mark1 in Oct 1996 from Fords of Winsford supermarket - absolutely no regrets with it. Had 17k on the clock @ 9 months, now (Aug 2008) has 210K ! There is a bit of rust now visible, but hardly surprising after the mileage and chips picked up!. The engine's very responsive, runs like...

“The proud Mondeo owner”

Lots of space, Can fit 3 child seats in the rear, ...

Very few!!

I will always be pleased with my Mondeo. We bought a 52reg second hand and it was so good to drive we recently upgraded our second car to an Xreg Mondeo. I have never known a car with so much space. With all the changes in the child safety laws and expecting a third child we had to consider our...

No cred in owning a Mondeo

After having company supplied Mondeo's from the first issue , I have always felt very confident in its safety, the performance has always been sluggish in the lower end of the rev range and therefore not developing any serious horsepower until you are revving the guts out of it. Having said that...

Dull

The Rep's car, the samey, dull, mass-produced, clunky icon of the 1990s the Ford Mondeo. Now I like Capri's, sad, I know, but I like them, especially the Mark ones with the Chrome trimmings and poor steering. I like individualistic cars, head-turners, cars designed to look good and drive bad...
