What's the 2.0-litre TDCi Mondeo like?

I'm thinking of buying a 2010 Ford Mondeo 2.0-litre diesel with 69,000 miles on the clock. I need to know are they good engines and troublefree?

Thanks, Noel

Hi Noel,

Nothing too serious to worry about it. That 2.0-litre TDCi diesel engine does suffer occasionally from cutting out unexpectedly, but it's usually just a software fault and the ECU can be easily updated by a dealer. Other than that keep an eye out for issues with the keyless entry and ignition system (a rarely-seen option anyway) and keep an eye on the cabin - creaky trim is common and apparently the seat bolsters can collapse even on surprisingly low mileage cars.
