Excellent car except for one bad fault that every time you open the tailgate after its been raining the water pours into the boot.- Buy the mondeo estate version not the hatchback.

No problems so far. Tyres for the 19" wheels are ł240 plus.

Every ford mondeo I have owned has been 100% reliable. This model isn't as economical as my previous 2.2 tdci st mondeo, but it is much quieter and faster, tyres are quite expensive at approximate ł240 each for bridgestones, servicing is what you would expect.

Major electrical problems since the 60k mark along with a gear box fault. The car does a good mpg and the service costs are covered by the lease arrangment.

Only problem has been burst exhaust and had to get a new battery. Apart from above the car has never let me down.I have been very pleased with the Mondeo.

Pete_W4 months ago

Never had any issues with cars reliability. Took out a service contract so this has kept running costs don.

A friend of mine recently had a similar issue on his 18,000 mile Ford C-Max, attributed to a failed hydraulic cylinder which then emptied fluid all over the clutch thus ruining it. I wonder if there is a hydraulic problem with these cars that Ford aren't talking about.

Great car for the price, cheap servicing everywhere and good build quality. Good all round family car

Porker4 months ago

Lid on armrest compartment broken and battery keeps going flat. Three software upgrades have been released by Ford so far to fix the problem. Not good enough! Still not confident latest software upgrade will fix the problem. Otherwise car is pretty much what I expected it to be. A good family car.

Beginning to get concerned about its age and the impact on its reliability and possible rising maintenance costs

Red4 months ago

I think the MONDOE is an excellent car and have recommended to friends and family.

Porker4 months ago

The car is generally good, with the exception of brakes being below standard, and there are some areas of engine 'reliability' that indicates some degree of poor quality control or design fault. Unfortunately these are not going to be repairable under warranty.

MechExp4 months ago

i did not think fords still had a rust problem. The bottom of the rear doors are rusting a common problem i have been told!!!!!

Pete_W4 months ago

Broke down twice since I have owned it. About average.

Pretty reliable - no major problems. Cost of minor bodywork damage (like replacement bumpers) is high. Performance is acceptable for the class. Only real annoyance is that the tyre pressures do not stay at a decent level for any time at all, meaning I have to keep a constant eye on them, and carry a tyre pressure meter and pump everywhere.

My car is overall good and apart from the recent issue relating to the turbo charger and the injectors has been almost faultless since I bought it. I would very much like to see how much the new Ford Mondeo builds on the reputation of the model I have currently got.

Watergirl4 months ago

Ok I'll do that, unless they ring up tomorrow and say it's being fixed! Would it be reasonable to request a refund for the full year's tax that they put on for me too (I paid for it)?

Fireboy4 months ago

Hi all, firstly sorry this isn't in the Mondeo section but I want it to get the most exposure possible and hopefully there may be one or two Ford mechanics reading it who can help me out!

Fiesta, Probe, Ranger. Explorer, Maverick etc... lol

MechExp4 months ago

Only problem I had was when I purchased it from ford direct within 5 weeks I had nagging little noise found to be a faulty gearbox .which was replaced nearly 4 years ago and nothing I repeat nothing has gone wrong since. As a lot of about town is mainly it's use these days since I retired.

Red4 months ago

No problems at all. No costs other than tyres & servicing.

Watergirl4 months ago

If they do say it's being fixed I'll be requesting a receipt/invoice from wherever they have it fixed (doubt it'll be Ford, I'm sure it would cost a small fortune to do with them.)

Bri19874 months ago

Not the best car in the world, but not the worst by a long shot. Re-current gearbox problems, and seized caliper, but also fuel pump replaced

Fionas_Boy4 months ago

Yeah thought that might be the case. Like you say I can put up with losing 20 quid as long as I get a full refund of the car.

Matchmaker14 months ago

Never had a problem. Relatively cheap for a car of its size.

Fionas_Boy4 months ago

No major problems over the years l have owned it, just the usual maintenance jobs done ie brakes, bearings, etc. required new battery and windscreen washer motor shortly after l purchased it. there is a problem at the moment with the central locking when the key fob is used so opening/locking doors manually at the moment. The main running costs have been petrol of course and the road tax which seems to go up each year. I think people with older cars are unfairly taxed by governments.

Ford Mondeo clutch assembly fault

Never fully broken down. had one failed thermostat, no other problems. Everything great except the fuel and road tax.

FordOwner4 months ago

Replaced previous model mondeo, you can tell where Ford have saved money with fittings etc. Although very reliable i have never really taken to it

Corrie19994 months ago

Starts ok but showing its age. Petrol 1.8 so thirsty.

Col Minessota4 months ago

Compared to a Mondeo I owned several years ago, this one is light years ahead. If this is the sign of things to keep on coming from Ford, I wish they would build a new Capri, as a true sports car is teh only thing missing in their line-up. (Don't consider the hot hatches such as ST or RS models to be sports cars.)

MDG Ltd4 months ago

A good reliable car with a responsive drive and cheap to maintain. It's only drawback is that in its 10th year it is a bit frayed around the edges internally and externally and has been leaking water into the boor area.

MDG Ltd4 months ago

Great car, but at this age starting to have a few problems

Fireboy4 months ago

Only problem caused failure to complete a journey, broken front spring. Biggest cost as always is depreciation.

FordOwner4 months ago

Brilliant! no problems. Tyres reasonably priced. mpg is resaonable for a big powerful car.

petHead4 months ago

I have had no problems with the car over the 2 years that ihave owned it. Fuel consumption could be better the next year model was vastly improved.

Matchmaker14 months ago

It is quite common to replace a moderately-worn clutch when the 'box is off, as that saves removing the box again to replace it later.

Col Minessota4 months ago

I'm not a lawyer, but I would have thought that if it was the leasing company who authorised the work, they ought to be liable to pay for it - You didn't give permission and were only contacted after it was done.

FordOwner4 months ago

Fantastic car with great build quality and good driving manners. Don't understand why anyone would want a BMW 3 series when this car is almost as good for two thirds the price, why would you pay 8K more for a badge and less equipment. Only one quibble with car is that it is very big.

Corrie19994 months ago

Not given me any serious problems. Better than my last car. a newer car may be better.

MechExp4 months ago

No problems other than those caused by rough roads. Heavy fuel consumption particularly when towing.
