Forget about an SUV - get the Mondeo wagon
Purchased a 2012 TDCi wagon. Fabulous car for fuel economy & great safety rating. Drove Melbourne to Cairns, cost only $220 in diesel. Great with overtaking & on the open road. Not as smooth to drive around town, but only making this comparison to my previous vehicle (2012 Ford XR6). A very spacious, reliable, & trouble free vehicle. Had looked at SUV's in the same catagory, however price & vehicle boot size couldn't be compared. These wagons are fantastic value for money.

Great family wagon
Purchased second hand due to needing a wagon and better safety rating than our older car. The diesel is fume free, economical and quiet. I had to get used to the blinker being on the wrong side for Australia. The seat is very comfortable front and back, suitable for large and small people.

Great family car
Excellent value for money. Fresh and attractive design for this category, more than enough room inside, perfect set of options for family use (driver seat memory really helps when people with significant difference in height both drive the car interchangeably, front parking sensors in addition to rear sensors and camera) plus lots of convenient helpers. After Toyota Camry feels like a prestige car.
I took my car to Ford at Midland for a service. It came back with a transmission fault. I spent several hundred dollars trying to get the problem diagnosed, not solved...diagnosed. Ford Midland basically said buy a new car. The Ford Mondeo is not reliable. I had a 2 litre Torq diesel. The car was about 7 years old and perfectly maintained. I've never seen such poor problem ownership as I have with Ford. They basically washed their hands even though they created the fault. I had to sell my car with money still owing on it.
great car only had one problem will soon be fixed
i found that is a great car plenty of leg room great eco (fuel)what else can i say oh my wife really loves this car.I have had one problem the dpf (diesel particulate filter but the car yard is going to fix this problem so i wont have to pay for this problem.
Ford Mondeo Station Wagon Feedback
My car is economical to run, and runs well, particularly well on the open road and long distances. However, it has now come up with a problem. When I drive over 80km, a message comes up on the dashboard." Transmission Auto Limited"
I have had it serviced every 10,000 kms and an auto transmission service at 50,000 kms. Codes have been hard to find and Ford had to drive it 60kms and over 80kms to find them. They corrected the codes and replaced the module under the gear stick and then it seemed it should be OK but the message came up on the ...
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.
Compact family wagon
Sleek looking compact wagon. Has all the trimmings including voice activated audio and cd player. Sea ts are comfortable with a good fabric and look. Tends to wear passenger rear tyre quicker than the rest. Excellent mileage on long runs. Electric windows with plenty of leg room. Perfect for the small family. Ample space in the bag for luggage or shopping.
Beautiful, simple car.
Just bought a 2011 Mondeo with 18,000 kms on it. Just like it came off the show floor. A little under power for a wagon but great to drive and sticks to road like glue. Nice driving position and plenty of leg room for the whole family. Huge boot space and a lot of options in car for anyone who needs them.
Had it serviced last week by Ford (very competitive on price), no issues.
Overall a nice, cheap to run second car.
best car ever
i would recommend the diesel ford mondeo to anyone i have had it for 9 years and its never let me down . It has plenty of room and the boot can fit so much in it. Mine is a also an automatic and the fuel ecomony is fantastic, n a 70litre tank I get around 900 to 1000 kms per tank.
Great car. Best Ford ever!
The Mondeo is a great car. It has virtually all the same fittings and accessories as our Mercedes and cost significantly less. The only fault I can find with this car is that it is extremely difficult to get the ignition key in. It's tucked away behind the steering wheel and you really need to open the front door to find the keyhole!
Other than that it does everything really well, without fuss, and once a year servicing is economical
This is a review for a 2011 Ford Mondeo 2.0 ltr TDI wagon.
I purchased this vehicle with a full service history in January 2015, it had 90,000 kms on the clock.
The Mondeo has now covered 123,000 kms. Aside from service items, it has had a filter in the steering fluid reservoir unblocked, at a cost of $50. There is no sign of corrosion on the bodywork
It has very comfortable positive handling. Very quiet, plenty of load space, extremely economical at 6.3 ltrs per 100kms average. It was fitted with new cheap Achilles tyres, these lasted for 30,0...
Horribly underrated car
In the age of senseless SUV purchasing, the Mondeo is an absolute godsend in large family cars. A full size vehicle with every bit of equipment and safety features complete with a boot that puts 7 seater cargo holds to shame.
The 2.0L turbo diesel effortlessly gets around town in the 6-6.5l/100 and on any stretch of highway, will get around 5. There's enough guts to get the engine up and about when needed but otherwise just chugs along without issue.
The boot space in the wagon is phenomenal and with seats folded down you could have a pa...rty in the back if you wanted. Adaptive cruise is one of those features that's hard to forgo once you've have it, all of the safety features included are often high priced extras on other vehicles, automatic and electric everything and the seats are some of the most comfortable I've sat in. My only small gripe is the Ford Sync 2.0 software. Not having any compatibility with Apple CarPlay or Android is just unforgivable these days. Overall it's been the best car I've owned and for what probably just gets seen as a boring fleet car is actually a bloody good vehicle that's criminally underrated in a glut of generic SUV's.
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.
I purchased a low kilometer well maintained XR5T Mondeo 14 months ago, after considering a number of options for a spacious family car with a bit of go and decent handling. Finally settled on the XR5T, and have never looked back.
I have covered approx 15000kms so far with no issues and it seems to be a well put together car. It comes with the full suite of safety features including airbags, traction and stability control. Also has auto headlights, rain sensing wipers and follow me home lighting
It is the kind of car that grows on you.
