  1. not seen them yet, though avert from garage states it has full service history. trouble is I haven't seen many of the 2,2st's with mileage under 90k so really now I'm asking whats likely to need doing round these times? and rough guide prices. i';m guessing good idea for cam belt is there any work that a novice can carry out or are the engines fully enclosed?
  2. from what I can see its motorway miles, all ive seen in my price range seem high mileage anyways. so you'd advise to stay away as I want it to last and not be expensive
  3. ok all this info is helpful.... so ive narrowed it down to two cars really one is a 07 one is 06, prefer the 06 2,2 st as price is in my raqnge a lot more, but the mileage is 167k, with this sort of mileage what should I expect to need doing or what should have been done to keep this running sweet and and last a while longer?
  4. excellent more info the better, really like the look of the car, and now with baby n buggy and all that need a four door and boot space, but still retain a element of modding subtly when the mrs aint looking
  5. so is that a cheap fix or gonna cost? just read a few posts bout mondeos and saw that
  6. seen both, but majority seem to be diesel version
  7. hi all just joined the forum, as thinking of buying a ford mondeo and leaving the French car scene. have my eye on a few mondeos ranging from 05-07 the st model, now all the ones I am viewing are high milege as in anything from 97-160k on clocks so guessing these were company cars on motorway mileage. so my questions are..... what are these cars like for servicing, repairs, general wear n tear? also with these high mileage engines whats likely needed to be done to them to keep em maintained well. and are there any common problems or things to look out for when buying one of these. basically I;m after as much info as possible on these, as money is tight as just had a new born, so don't want to buy the car and two weeks later it falls bits with a ton of bills to put it right.
