The Mondeo is a daily driver but has done long trips as well. The 2 litre turbo diesel is relaxed and comfortable. Handling good. Massive room in hatchback. good long distance tourer, economical . Return trip to NSW half the cost in fuel compared to a Falcon ...or a BMW 325 which it replaced.
Purchased in January 2020 at motorwell for $9,500.00.
LOVE this Superstar Car!!!
Love love love our Ford Mondeo! Had this car for over 5 years and it has NOT ONCE let us down. Only been to the mechanic once of twice for minor issues. Great family car too. Massive boot! Highly recommended!!!
Purchased in March 2013 for $10,000.00.
- Mondeo MB (2009-2010)
Absolutely the best car ever!
I do not know where to start.. this mondeo we bought which is the titanium diesel is incredible so very reliable. Fuel consumption is amazing.. we get 1000 km's per tank around town! Air conditioning. is freezing cold.. transmission is so smooth. We drive our mondeo 3 to 4 times per week. Servicing is done only at ford. The boot is massive .. larger than our ford falcon boot which was our previous car. Engine bay looks great and enough space to to work on the motor if need be. Electric heated seats are a plus and work fantastic. We have never h...ad any issues with our Mondeo. The sun roof works perfectly. No issues with our mondeo which we have had under 1 year . The leather is still immaculate .. it is not the usual cheap leather used in cars in Australia.. probably as it is a European made car. Best car ever for comfort, reliability and quality!
Been an amazing car. No issues at all. Love it and will keep this car for a long time. Drives really well. Comfortable on long trips. Heaps of room. Highly recommend it.Made in Belgium by Ford. Europeans know how to build cars. Nice styling and shape.Cannot believe no issues in 9 years.
Love this beauty.
Well I have always been a Mondeo Man. Used it in UK for more than 5 years, use this beauty down under. No major problems. I drive around in Tasmania so sometime cold starts gives me a knocking sound. But after 15 minutes drive it goes off otherwise its a brilliant vehicle. Good average 6L/100 KM in highways and urban driving gives me around 7.4/100 KM. Love to drive this European/American beauty in Australian roads.
The ford mondeo is not a good car. After 5 months i started having transmission issues. Took it to several places and costing hundreds, it still isnt fixed. I finally got into a ford machanic and was told to cut my losses and sell quick as possible. To fix the 2 sences in the gearbox would cost me around $5000. I saved everything to buy this car and now im stuck the a broken car, no savings and faults after faults
Very nice car car I had for 8 years.
Neat and a delight to drive,all interior options very easy to use and understant.Great 2.3lt petrol engine,auto trans no problems,just lacks top end torque.Otherwise a very comfortable car to drive and tow a camper trailer with ease.Not suitable to tow caravans though as weight and towing rates will not be compliant.Economy good especially on cruise control.Plenty of space for luggage.Spare tyre not practical as not a full spare and causes inconvenience.Did have noise problems with power steering but great since problem was fixed.A car that could have been my last until we bought a caravan.Always used 95/98 octane fuel.
Amazing looking car but that's all.
Just writing this review to help people out with the Oz td ford mondeo, a great looking car inside and out but that's about it. My ford that I just sold at a loss from all the issues I had with it, where to start? Stuck in 3 gear for no reason with all the warnings lights on, lots of money to find out the software lost its memory. All the lights staying on after car was locked, to find out I needed a new battery, then you can only go to BP to get diesel as shell and that make it ran tuff as guys with power loss. The hatch leaked water as well, Could go on with heaps of problems. Stay away from them!! Btw mine only had 60kms on it.
Underrated car but excellent in many respects
This car does everything well. Handling, road feel, steering are great. The engine is a little doughy down low in auto mode. In sports mode, it takes off better. The mid range is strong and overtaking is easy. Long trips are comfortable and smooth. The interior is well designed and seats are comfy. Ours has 240000 kms and it has been reliable. There is an oil leak that we have not fixed. Running costs are average. It blows rear stop lights every few months. Fuel economy is 6.7 around town and 5.9 on long trips. 1000 kms a tank (on hwy trips)The...audio is excellent for a 2009 model. It has ABS, TC, EBD and feels very safe. The paintwork is excellent. In Townsville, even new cars have peeled paint from the sun. Our grey car has no sun damage. Our previous car was a VW Golf V TDI, and the Mondeo is superior in every department.
Mecatronic unit problem
I got a mondeo titanium 2009 model had it for 5 months only had 102000klm on it.first i had to take it in because the diesel mondeo has to do burn offs mine had to be done manually to grt all the crap out then i Was driving my girls to school the car decided to throw it self into 1st doing 80klm took it to ford they had no idea what was going on then it did it again 3 weeks later. I called the car yard where i got from they didn't want to know about it. I took it back to ford they tell me i needed a new mecatronic unit put in after they had it for a week. Needless to say i lost out on thousands of dollars i loved the car interior and the look of the car is everything i wanted. Very disappointed
This car has everything and is an absolute joy to drive. An under-appreciated classic of tomorrow!!
After losing a work vehicle and knowing I had to drive approx. 500 km each week to and from work, my modified 2001 Forester GT wasn't going to cut it from a fuel economy or a comfort level. So the search to replace it started in earnest. Fortunately it did not take too long to narrow down the field. I did not want a station wagon (been there done that too many times) and I did not want a sedan. I wanted a big hatch and in my mind was the old Rover 3500 with a big hatch. Absolutely nothing out there in a big hatch unless you wanted to spend 50-6...0k on a BMW 3 series Grand Tourismo 5 door hatch...um...no. Process of elimination draw me to the Ford Mondeo. There is a few models so which one? My mind remembers a cool looking car I remembered seeing...a Mondeo XR5. It is the turbo charged sporty variant Ford Australia made as part of their go fast range....XR5 Focus, XR6, XR8 Falcons etc. So once I had asked around, it was preferable to get the MB or second evolution of the XR5 Mondeo...it fixed some of the issues with the MA series and added some standard features....Sunroof, Bluetooth phone connectivity (best ever) and the best feature on the car...Interactive cruise control (more later). Test drove a few of the MA model - great but it confirmed that I wanted an MB model. When I was looking there was 8 for sale in the whole country!!! Four of these were in WA so they were out and a few on the east coast were a bit high in kilometres and a fair bit pricey. Found a great example for sale in Townsville...looked around but could not match it for the features and it only had 105k on the clock. Flew to Townsville and bought it. Drove it from Townsville to Sydney in 2 days (2300km) and to be honest, I could not have chosen a more prefect car. It is the ultimate in Grand Tourers - it just eats the road while keeping the occupants in lavish surroundings. Firstly some numbers, the motor is a straight 5 cylinder 2.5 litre turbocharged engine "borrowed" from the Volvo parts bin. It makes 162kW and over 300nm of torque. Anyone ever try and tell you the MA-MB-MC Mondeo is a medium sized car has not been in one. They are huge inside and out. Literally an inch narrower than a falcon of the same year and wheelbase is actually longer than the falcon. The seats easily accomodates 5 full sized people - the rear legroom is huge as is the headroom. The boot is truly cavernous and takes a very big load. She’s a big girl and weighs in at 1600kg. It is smart off the line and the turbo give it a very smooth powerful delivery of power. It is a six speed manual transmission only - no auto slushbox here! It is incredibly smooth to drive and it rewards the driver with a real sense of satisfaction when driving anywhere. The performance is on the right side of snappy and you will want to take advantage of the excellent cruise control - overtaking means you pull out and gas it...and if you’re not careful you've smashed the speed limit easily. A few reasons for this...it's a very smooth drive and the car is insanely quiet. I came off a Subaru with the fully sic boxer WRX super loud exhaust and my wife said it was amazing how quiet the new car is. The naturally quiet cabin is one of the best features of the car – and it’s built into every Mondeo!!!
Mondeo to Sunday a great drive
I purchased my 2009 Mondeo TDCi from a friend two years ago. He looked after his cars, treated them like a good woman with the respect they deserve, so I knew I was on to a good thing. In a former life I was once a private chauffeur and it was said that I could make my employers Merc dance if called upon to do so. The same goes for the Mondeo. Normally I wouldn't waste spit on a Ford, but the German engineering of the Mondeo, the leather seats, the solid feel and the classy dash made it feel like I was behind the wheel of a quality automobile. ...The fuel economy of 1,000 kms to the tank is nothing short of spectacular. A little slow in first gear before the power kicks in, but that's the worst I can say about it. After 107,000 ks it still drives like new with no mechanical problems so far. I highly recommend this model as a second hand purchase.
Second Mondeo and still impressed
Changed our 2009 Mondeo over in August for a 2012 Titanium TDCi with 8000k on the clock, while I was very happy with our first Mondeo this one is even better, it has all the safety equipment you could ask for including adaptive cruise, lane change indicators and is more powerful than our previous car but still as economical recently got 1200 out of tank on open road, as previously stated Ford are letting them selves down big time by not pushing this car I know it lacks reversing camera and sat nav but all the other assets it has puts it right u...p there. Extremely reliable and economical and the diesel is so drivable & have had discussions with people who state they can't justify additional cost of the diesel well the added torque (more than Holden's V6) makes passing and hills seem non exisitent and still getting 6.1 km/100 on open road with luggage Adaptive cruise took some getting used too as car applies brakes on freeway if someone cuts in then car will accelerate back up to speed by itself when safe to do so
MB 2009 Ford Mondeo Wagon Petrol 2.3L
Great car, some minor cosmetic issues however resolved at the right Ford Dealer, one dealer was very tough and then went to another to get all issues raised corrected. Running at 9.5l per 100km, if a lot of highway use in the low 7 or 8L /100km. 6 speed gearbox a little jerky but mostly all round a good car with full safety pack. 5 Star Ancap.
Reasonable well built a cheap to run even on the petrol model compared to the Commodore wagon same year.
Sometimes little rattle here and there. If Ford dealer gives any trouble with warranty, just go to another dealer, Springwood QLD perhaps.
This is a fantastic car to drive. It handles so well and has the European stylish appearance. The Zetec model is packed with features including being able to have a different temperature setting on the driver's side to the passengers side. We have the diesel and the fuel consumption is fantastic. The boot space is also large enough to fit a bundle of baby items including prams, etc. The rear and front parking sensors make parking this car so easy to park in small spaces. Highly recommended.
I love how this car handles. It also looks stylish and has a large boot.
Nothing at all.
Questions & Answers
car was running fine i was trying to do oul chance but the sump plug could not come out so i took the cor of the ramps and now the car wont start the dash board reads engane malfuion
yeah a friend done an oil change on ramps on a nissan pulsar and a similar thing happened. Guessing got something to do with excessive oil flowing down past the valves and getting sucked into the engine through valve stem seals because of the angle of the car on the ramps when he refilled the engine with oil. Think it fouled the Maf sensor causing error code. Might have to reset error code with scan tool and clean egr system if error reoccurs. I assume engine is running ok? I am not a mechanic and only know what Ive picked up from doing.
I have a Ford Mondeo Titanium 2009, need to know what oil to use?
