A little disappointed
Purchased 2nd hand with 32000kM, first Diesel. Issues with passenger window only going up and down in small stages (7 movements to open or close window) and internal rear view mirror always too dark and dimming doesn’t change. Suspect electronics not reset after battery change. Web based window resets don’t work.
It is difficult to know exactly what functions are actually supported, as functional info provided on sites can be contradictive.
Car looks nice, drives well and shows signs of good economy.
Dec 20, drove to Brisbane half way back t...ransmission goes into limited function. EGR valve identified faulty but no spares in country. Took 2 weeks to organise and fit one from wrecker to get car home and new EGR valve still to be fitted once they arrive in country mid Feb. Window function and now drivers seat still not functioning correctly. Window randomly works correctly.
Purchased in November 2020.
Mostly good. Bit of a slow gearbox holds it back.
This car does the job. I have the diesel version and extremely fuel efficient. Only problem is when you accelerate at low speeds there is a massive lag which can be quite frustrating. Trying to pull out into a gap in traffic can be difficult. Other than that it’s a very functional car in all other aspects. Fantastic boot space. Great for bikes and don’t need a roof rack.
Purchased in January 2016 for $13,000.00.
Hidden gem of a car
My first Modeo wagon was back in 2010 and this is my third one(renew every 3 years) and the best so far. This car has excellent road handling, heaps of torque, all the bells & whistles you need in a car such as
-easy to use touch screen with no fuss sat nav
-huge cargo space
-great sound system
- parking sensors
The list goes on. I also occasionally drive my wife’s Audi and this car comes pretty close for comparison to drive.
I do approx 45,000 kms a year and have had no issues with any of my Mondeo’s.
If your looking to buy a wagon just take it for a drive, you wont be disappointed.
I think it's very good in terms of performance, and it's very quiet
I love the interiors, the only thing that's not enough is the internal space
Clutch joint point is very good grasp, but the various stalls are relatively smooth. Car steering power is just right, but there are auxiliary parking and other intelligent systems, parking in a bit effortless, security greatly improved.
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.
I personally think that the car I chose to buy was a far more superior drive to even the newer ones I looked at. Performance is on tap, handling a little heavy, but I like that in a car. Hardly know it’s a diesel until you clock 900ks and still have room to move. Interior is hands on, easy to reach and navigate. Only dislike in this model/ year is where the window switches are located. Behind/ underneath door armrest. A little ‘ out of the way’ but 1st world problem. Being 6’2”, legroom is fantastic front and rear.
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.
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.
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...
Purchased for $12,500.00.
Great car for a great price.
Without doubt the best car I've ever owned. I have a pretty loyal history with Ford, well with Ford falcons that's is. Have owned quite a few from a 78 xb falcon to an xr6 and xr8, sedan and station wagon, but the mondeo is by far the most superior. I can't believe the resale value on these cars, we got ours for a song. Had it for a year now, we bought a 2012 titanium for its beautiful, smooth, super fast driving experience and HUGE hatch size.... Aaaand for the seat warmers! My husband and I can both lay head to toe in the back with the seats ...down, and we have a golden retriever that sits comfortably in the back. It's very responsive, has without doubt the best breaks I've ever experienced. We have the petrol model and get up to 800kms a tank on open road even when packed full, less around the city, on average 600kms a tank I reckon. Great stereo, parking sensors everywhere makes it bliss to park, and oh those toasty heated seats!! Has brilliant cruise control, and this thing has major guts when you hit the excelerator yet hugs corners even in the wet seemingly effortlessly. I feel really really safe in this car. Which says something as the car we owned before this was a Land Rover Discovery, nice car but cost us a fortune in constant repairs. Had the mondeo almost a year and haven't spent a cent on it. It should be noted though, some early mondeos had problems with the transmission and when we first purchased ours there was a strange gear change shudder type sensation when taking off from stand still. Took it back to Ford to update it's software and it's been fine since. Great modern car for a great price, it has so many luxury features, great seats with automatic adjusting, automatic lights and wipers, Bluetooth etc, in fact the Audi dealer said this mondeo had more features than some of his top end Audi's. Only thing missing in this model was GPS but we were fine with that. We love this car so much will be hanging onto it for a while to come.
The Mondeo is a great car to drive.
Driving the car is effortless, up to date with safety features, comfortable seating, modern looking. The Titanium has many many standard features including digital radio.
Too soon to really rate its reliability, only 3-4 months old, but no problems so far. Reasonable petrol usage for a car its size, averages 7-8 litres per 100 km.
July 8th 2018 Update: Follow up on my review from two years ago.
I still enjoy driving this car. No problems so far. Being top of the range in Australia one would expect additional inclusions which are only av...ailable in overseas markets e.g. rear cross traffic warning, a major exclusion in this car for some reason. Ventilated seats instead of heated only. Massage seat (drivers seat) not even an option at time of purchase. Speed sign recognition not available. Lane keeping assistance is unreliable, more often greyed out than useable. Does not function at all (including smart cruise control) in heavy rain. Fuel economy is very much up to the individual. Using cruise control whenever possible contributes a lot to lower fuel consumption. Drive the Mondeo more spiritedly and you will pay the price. My best was 6.7 litres, very careful driving. Average is around 8.5 litres. It is a big car after all, just an inch or so shorter than the Falcon. Overall, I can't fault the car mechanically or otherwise.
Great car - Bad Air con
Overall I've been very happy with my 2011 Zetec Mondeo Hatch. Fuel economy is good in the diesel and handles very well with a large boot. The only let down is the Aircon. It's blowing hot air and fuses. Taken it to Ford three times and they can't fix it? Asked another Ford dealership in Adelaide and they advised me the cost would be too high and they would need to get it to an air conditioner specialist. He diagnosed it as It could be the compressor or bad earthing? as the gas was good.
Easy to drive and enjoy driving again
Mondeo titanium 2015 was a step up from my previous vehicle and I'm glad so far of the selection - diesel engine is awesomely efficient. For a diesel it's quiet enough and doesn't sound like a truck.
Features of the vehicle are well appointed for the price, would have liked the Sync 3 however Sync 2 does the job well.
Some people say the functions and the settings of the vehicle are complicated and a pain, they aren't at all... just work through it like a new smart phone - the vehicle has the ability for the user to change the Ambience ...lighting in the car with a selection of colours... Yet to take it on a long drive, but I already know it's going to be a comphy drive with those seats! If you're going to put some klm on the car, I'd go the diesel - sure maintenance is a bit more but a petrol engine would only do half the amount of klms
