can you help?
i have just bought a 3yr old zetec 130tdci from a ford forecourt which was supposedly given the full service and multi-point check over etc. its going back in on weds to have a very difficult gear change looked at. but has other issues too....... as mentioned gear selection is very difficult when cold (extremely so for reverse), also if i select gears 5 or 6 then the gear stick does not spring back to the central position without a push as every other car always has. also the handbrake lever comes very high (almost hits centre console). and theres more..... when its cold and wet outside the climate control struggles to keep the windows from misting up (this also has never been a problem with previous cars). are these mondeo characteristics or faults as i have had various similar cars from ford rivals over the years and had none of these issues. was i silly to think the most popular family saloon car in this country should be stress free???? p.s. its done 51k with most history and is under warranty.
