“I had one of these. The dual mass clutch fell apart...”

Written on: 22/05/2008 by slbrook (3 reviews written)

I had one of these. The dual mass clutch fell apart after 6 months. Ccar never really ran right as it spluttered all the time. Eventually after 75Kmiles the diesel pump packed in taking the whole fuel system with it. Serious expense. 3 months out of warranty after having full Ford service. Ford warranty didn't want to know. Will never, ever buy a Ford again… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/05/2008 by paullear (1 review written)

I've driven 175000 miles in my '01 tdci Ford Mondeo; it € s a great car to drive, pulls like a train out of roundabouts and handles ridiculously easily. It € s comfy for five adults and loads of luggage, it € s quite economical, but not staggeringly so. It has been cheap-ish to run; I did about the same mileage on a Mk2 1.8TD Mondeo which was REALLY cheap to run! I've had a few probs, but nothing major yet. The repairs so far are as follows: Handbrake cable - handbrake would stick on due… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/03/2008

Great car love it, sharp handling the ride is a bit hard but still somehow is very comfy even after a long dive.
Drive it correctly it will do 55 60 mpg on a run while still retaining 40 mpg around town. But being a 16v engine drive it hard and the mpg will drop to 30 ish around town.
If you want a good family car the Mondeo is a good drivers choice!… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/01/2008 by johnwty (1 review written)

I love driving this car, and with over 50mpg on a run its very cheap motoring. Yes it does go wrong, but being a Ford parts are quite cheap compare to a BMW say. Although the engine is quite nosiey compare to the tdci its still good, and it holds the speed on the motorways easy. The only thing i don't like is the clutch, its very odd and takes ages to get use to. Overall thumbs up!!!

Written on: 05/12/2007 by Burnsy (1 review written)

I bought a 2002 (52 plate) Mondeo TDDI LX 115bhp in august 2005. It had 40000 miles on the clock at this time. Since then I've done over 35,000 miles. These have been mainly commuting in and around Glasgow but have also included numerous trips into the Scottish Highlands on demanding A and B roads and a couple of holidays to the French Alps. (around 3000 miles in 2 weeks).

During this time the only major repair was the rear wheel bearing which needed replaced (200 to repair and at 60,000… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/08/2007 by maesderw (1 review written)

I bought the Ford Mondeo 2.0 TDDi 115 LX 5dr car with 16K on the clock as a towing vehicle but after about 1200 miles of towing over the last 17 months, the clutch is almost shot and not apparently covered by the warranty. Although the car is recommended by various caravan magazines as an ideal tower, the main dealers I visited reckon that any such use will damage the clutch and invalidate any potential claim under warranty. Told by them if I tow a caravan again the clutch will fail. Also told… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/07/2007 by jeff122 (1 review written)

I did 70,000 miles in this as a company car. The engine was great and it was a good car to drive.
It had been back to the main dealers TWICE by the time it had done 120 miles due to central locking problems. It would either not lock or unlocks by itself. Plus all the windows stuck open. This was NEVER resolved. I could return to the car having locked it to find it unlocked, occasionally with all the windows open too. This might not happen for about 3 months, then it could happen 3 or 4 times in… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/03/2007 by darren115 (1 review written)

I have owned this car for around 3 years now and bought it with 85K on the clock and the only thing that has needed to be changed is the rear subframe bushes after a year, recently a front coil spring and top suspension bearing. It never fails to start, and never complains or struggles when the boot is full to busting, with the rear seats down it offers a massive load carrying space.

It has surprised more expensive powerful cars on several occasions.

If I was to swop it, it would be for the… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/07/2006 by oreillyd (1 review written)

Don't buy a Ford Mondeo. The flywheel and clutch went at 60,000 miles. The car was regularly serviced at 12,500 mile intervals and was just out of warranty by 4 months. I asked Ford to make a goodwill payment to 'help' with the repairs but they refused. I believe from looking at the internet that this is a known fault so buyer beware and don't expect any understanding from Ford… Read Full Review

I drive the same car and now at, 67,000 miles my clutch has gone! Again serviced by ford only, at the correct service intervals this made no difference to my boss who still belives I thrash the car, or ride the clutch! After much explaining that after 20 years of driving this was my first clutch failiure . Anyway will keep you informed with the dealings that I have with Ford.

“I'll never ever buy another Ford Mondeo, Skoda are far...”

Written on: 03/02/2006 by peterswansea (1 review written)

I'll never ever buy another Ford Mondeo, Skoda are far better.I've owned over 20 Fords since my Capri days and during my 25 years as a taxi driver have I ever bought such a load of rubish ever!
Car has had 3 clutches, 1 fuel pump, 1 rear pump, 1 set of injectors £800!, 3 starter motors, 1 alternator. I actually spent from Jan 04 to Dec 04 over £4,200. The car is on 146,000 which for a taxi of 4 years is low!!! My old transit had 34,500 miles when I sold it still going strong second hand… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/04/2006

There is a known problem with this engine in that the metal dust from the fly wheel damages the starter motor replacing the starter motor is not the answer it is recommended that the gearbox and fly wheel housing is removed and cleaned and in some cases the clutch and flywheel assembly has to be replaced as well costing >£1500 a very big job. Ford are aware of the problem but choose to do nothing about it because the failure occurs at about 70000 to 80000 miles outside any warranty cover.

Couldn't agree more with Peterswansea. As a fellow taxi driver I too am suffering from Fords shortcomings. Ask any Mondeo driving taxi driver ,clutches,flywheels,fuel pumps,suspension they are just not up to the job.

Maesderw's Response to 186308_simmo 3's Review

Written on: 23/08/2007

I bought my 05 registered 2.0 TDCI 115 bhp 17 months ago with 16K on the clock. It was bought as a caravan puller since it had got good reviews from various caravan magazines. The car now has 26K on the clock and a clutch which is just about to disintegrate and has had the clutch master cylinder replaced. The clutch is not covered by the warranty and is going to cost me £600 to replace. The main dealers were completely unsympathetic and reckoned that towing with this vehicle would guarantee a clutch failure. They also hinted that my driving style - 'you might be riding the clutch sir' might have contributed to the problem. Another recurring fault was that whenever I used the cigarette lighter socket to charge my phone, the fuse blew. The main dealer's solution, leave the charger in permanently since taking it out caused the socket to earth and blow the fuse! Needless to say, I will never buy another Ford and would not recommend this car to anyone.

I agree with this review because my experience regarding clutch problems is even worse, mine went at 26K, no sympathy at all from main dealers, clutch not covered by warranty so will cost me £600 to replace. Told by dealers that since I'd used the car to tow a caravan (about 1200 miles over 17 months), the warranty would have been invalidated anyway!

Written on: 10/11/2004 by milemuncher (1 review written)

Overall the Ford Mondeo 2.0 TDDi 115 LX 5dr is a good Family Car which hasn't actually gone wrong/broke down in 12 months hard use, it is quite comfortable but could do with even more power. Ford could improve minor items, an ignition off power socket would be usefull, also changing the main beam/flasher arangement, the cruise control with its non illuminated controls is useless at night and I dont think we need a heated front screen - auto wipers/dipping rear mirror would be better… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/10/2004 by goldring (1 review written)

The 'Ford' batch used to be reason enough for me to simply avoid all their cars, as they always appeared to be below average and cheap. However, I have changed my mind when I bought a Focus Zetech in 2001 as this car managed to change my entire attitude about this manufacturer.

Driver:
This car most certainly impresses with its performance and outstanding road handling. It 'grows' on you very quickly and leaves you feeling very save, indeed. The ride is sporty and yet comfortable. It leaves… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/11/2003 by ndixon (1 review written)

Bought this privately from the in-laws, who now have the same model with a TDCI engine.

At 2 years old with 25,000 miles it's had no faults apart from the air-recirculation switch apparently not working. Mechanically everything is sound.

The engine is harsh and noisy, but no more so than modern VW engines. It's also surprisingly quick, considering the weight of the car.

It is prone to stalling when moving off, requiring the sort of throttle-poking clutch-slipping driving style normally… Read Full Review
