FORD MONDEO USER REVIEWS
The Mondeo is a smart looking car on the outside, but inside it gets a big fail from me. Dash is basic at best, seats uncomfortable and it feels cramped. Asked if we could get a full leather seat and told no the titanium has a leather trim but no leather seats are available. When you do an internet search and look at this vehicle overseas it is a very different car inside, touch screen, smart leather seats, folding mirrors, for the price it is way off compared with other cars on the market in the same price and size bracket. We did look at the falcon and again told no to the availability of diesel, not really much of an incentive to buy a ford. Colour choice also gets a big fail, who on earth wants a royal blue car these days not to mention brown. Sorry only my opinion but Ford really need to step up a notch. Have now looked at the new Ford Kuga and will be purchasing one of those.
I have a Mondeo MC TDCI and am generally happy with it so far. The reviews of the earlier models mention an annoying rattle somewhere within the centre audio console which a dealer has apparently said is symptomatic of Mondeos (code for bad luck). I'm disappointed that this hasn't been fixed in the MC model. I'm also having to get used the diesel lag, which confirms the observation in the review that it is not a particularly sporty drive.Having said all of that I would have bought the Titanium model if the dealer hadn't said they were almost impossible to get.
