How reliable is the 2005 Ford Mondeo?

Thinking of buying a 2005 petrol Ford Mondeo with 40,000 miles on clock. Are there any outstanding problems or things to look out for or are they generally reliable?

Hi David,

The Mondeo has proven to be very robust and there are no major issues to worry about - so long as the car has been serviced regularly. Ensure that the engine runs smoothly and that there isn't any 'blue' smoke coming from the exhaust. Big expenses include windscreen replacement and changing the rear suspension bushes.

Overall though it's a reliable car.

Hope that helps.
