As the title says.
I had a Mk2 1.8LX Mondeo many years ago. Since then due to business needs i have had 2 Focus estates, and a Transit Connect.
Never had a bad experience with any of them in over a combined mileage of about 350,000 miles. But the van went, i sold the business and wanted another car and change out of 4 grand. After considering a change and looking at some right Vauxhall crap, over priced Audis, and VW's, i thought lets try another Mondeo. So I ended up with a 2006 2.0L petrol Titanium Mk3, well specced up, and an awesome car for a fiver less than 4K. FSH and less than 50K on the clock, 2 previous owners, 1 being the main dealer in Essex somewhere.
I have had it for 4 months now, and my old Mk2 was a great car, this one is awesome. To say i am pleased with it is an understatemant. It has been well looked after and is a credit to its previous owner, the only downside is that they have touched in some stone chips with a different shade of silver, but this wont stop me getting to work and back, and touched in is better than left to rust.
The performance is amazing, its great fun leaving the A4 diesel knobheads for dead on the motorway.
