Awesome to drive car until the transmission goes, impossible to fix. It then it become a paper weight

2 Months in shop, 5 used parts used from wreckers. Why because they could not get new parts anymore. Since then they will not touch Ford Mondeos anymore. In the end repair costing $4000 and they gave back car not working 100%. unreliable to drive anymore Ford will not repair transmission and only install new ones at a cost of $13000 plus labour costs .Stay clear

Best ever

Traded in an old BMW and paid $10k Australian in 2013. Lasted 10 years without a single fault. 2 batteries, tyres and servicing. Lent it out to a friend 6 months ago and the other week it stopped on him. Mechanic says engine is gone. Not sure exactly how but for 10 years of straight use without problem and high kms (plus I was not good with servicing), this was the best car I have ever owned. Always intended to keep it as a spare when I bought another car 5 years ago, and said I would only get rid of it once it died. Well it time is up, but what a great car it was. Show details

Absolute beautiful car

This car is the most comfortable car I have ever owned, it is a freak on fuel we have never come across a car with the fuel economy as this car, it is very stylish and has got the power similar to an XR6, for a diesel car it does not sound like one it is quiet, I will not be selling this car for a very long time. Show details

does everything well !

in a world of suvs i cant understate the Mondeo , it does everything well, nothing is out standing , its not a race car , but will climb through the revs steadily right up to the 220 built in limiter ,
its not thirsty on gas ( but can be if you dont drive well )
it is set for economy ( clearly by the gearing) and only suffers a little on inclines ( as it doesnt want to drop gears) a little tap of the padels and your gtg ,
tows great with a weight capability that rivals a lot of the so called Utes!
well kitted out interior that you will struggle to find anywhere,
bloody shame they didnt keep making them , sigh , wont find another like it , Show details

So much better than I expected!

I bought a 2008 LX Ford Mondeo with 207000 km on it, and it has been amazing ever since. The only thing I replaced on the car was the breaks and tire, and servicing was done every 5000km or 3 months.

I took my Mondeo up to Brisbane and down to Melbourne, and west to Wagga Wagga, never missed a single beat. Planning to take it to snowy mountains this winter.

Built quality is surprisingly good as well. Rear-ended someone at 35kph once due to slipping on wet road with cheap tyre, absolutely no damage cosmetically at all.

Absolutely recommended as a first car, just make sure don't get the once with PowerShift transmission, those are utter pieces of crap, needs replacing every 100k at least and costs 5k for a second hand one. Show details

No SUV for me. A luxury sedan for me

This petrol engine Ford Mondeo ticks all of the boxes for me. Comfort with style and economy if driven sensibly. (Total average economy of 8.3 litres per 100 km since purchase over 1 year ago.) AEB, radar cruise, cross traffic alert & auto dipping headlamps are just some of the luxuries that are standard in this vehicle. It's a shame that Ford no longer import this vehicle. Show details

Flawed gearbox

If it wasn't for the gearbox I would be happy with this car, over 1100km range from 70l tank of diesel.
2014 mc tdi lx wagon with 85000 on the clock, still looks like new in engine compartment but just had major gearbox failure.
Spent over $6000 getting dual clutch repaired at 70000km.
I would strongly advise to not even consider buying a Ford with a dual clutch sports shift transmission as they are flawed, extremely complex and expensive to repair. The mechanic currently with the car has a Ford Kuga with 40000km also with a failed transmission.
Now most likely scrap the car as I'm reluctant to waste more money and just accept the loss of probably over $12000
I think I'm off Fords for life after this experience. Show details
