Hi :)

I have seen a 2002 02 Reg FORD Mondeo 2.0TDCi 130 LX for sale I would like to go for it but I am concerned about the amount of mileage on it, 176,000! :o, anyone got any idea of what mondeos are good for regarding miles, is this too many miles. Oh and the price is 1,750, what do you think?
Any thoughts welcome, thanks

its the dual mass flywheel check for any kind of rattles, noises when the clutch is depressed/released anything suspect could be dmf issues and is 800 to put right. also any kind of missfire at around 1800-2200 rmp could br egr valve(engine gas recycle) or injector codeing required. check out any possible problems at the forum page of
