Beware of unreliable Powershift transmission!
I bought my 2014 TDCi Mondeo wagon last year and shortly after purchasing it the car made clunking and grinding noises when travelling up hills. Turns out my Mondeo had a damaged gearbox and upon further research (many hours online and phoning transmission specialists) I discovered that the dual clutch Mondeo gearbox is well know for being very fragile and are often known to fail after 100,000kms.
I was quoted $4500 by a local trans specialist to get it repaired. All the transmission specialists that I spoke to told be that these gearboxes ar...e very complicated and failed often. The turbo diesel Mondeos are excellent cars to drive when they are working well. However in my opinion the risk of getting one with a gearbox that will fail far outweighs the benefits. Buyer beware!!
Purchased in May 2019 for $10,000.00.
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.
Supposed to replace, but nowhere near as good as, Falcon
UPDATE 20th April 2017: Another same spec Mondeo at my workplace had the transmission replaced!
Punchline: one owner, serviced at Ford regularly, automatic transmission replaced after only 75,000 km.
I really have to draw a comparison with my previous car, Ford Falcon, especially because this is supposed to replace it.
The good: When I first got the Mondeo, being my first diesel ever, I was surprised how quick it was. It is supremely comfortable. Huge luggage area (being a station wagon), for the first time ever I don't need to fit a roo...

I have never felt less control in a vehicle
The Mondeo is a very nicely built car. It's comfortable and drives very well but is severely let down by massively over-complex controls and features that leave you feeling uncertain as to what is going to happen most of the time you are driving.
Credit to Ford for developing imaginative systems towards fully automated driving, but they should have thought a LOT more carefully about the value these features add to the driving experience before shoe-horning them all into this vehicle. It's just far too confusing.
