surely you can't right off a Mondeo based on a couple of small problems...It could have happened with any car..Apart from your problems how do you rate the car to use/ drive........Bill
personally i would not buy a mondeo again, my 06 tdci has had new injectors and belt tensioner assemble already and only 39000 miles, the dmf's are also a weak spot. wish i had stuck with toyota.

I'm sorely tempted to go for a petrol, but i don't think i could take the hit on fuel economy....Ford should be kicked squarely in the nads for building such a problematic diesel car.....Bill
I've just sold my Mondeo TDCI with 90,000 miles had no problems at all - the only things replaced were service items, tyres & boot release switch and the only expensive item was the Dual Mass flywheel at over 80,000 miles this was £450 (worn out replaced by warranty company)I had the clutch changed while it was apart this cost £200.
Other than that no problems- The Ford diesels are not any more problematic than any other cars just check Ebay they do galactic miles - if you base your choice on reading problem forums like this it just magnifies any minor problems.
Buy a car and budget for an extended warranty mine cost less than £300 a year and covered all the expensive bits along with the non expensive parts, if you're buying a lower mileage car you can get a very good warranty
I've bought a new Mondeo TDCI so I must think they're doing something right - the Mk4 is an exceptional car you get a lot for your money. I love it even more than the Mk3
