Hi all,
I have just bought a red 2009 ford mondeo titanium x sport 175 and im really pleased with it,awsome car.
I had a audi sline 170 and the clutch went and i have never looked back.
I have not had mondeo long and bought it from auction is was a finance repo,it has 34000 miles on it.
Runs lovely and sounds nice but every time i start if the engine malfunction comes up and i click ok and it goes away but left with a amber information warning light and spanner so i presume it needs serviced.
I went to a mechanic but he cant look at it for 2 weeks so is it safe to drive normally like this?.
No weird noises or loss of power the car seems great.
Any help would be appreciated.
I will get some pics done when i get the chance

Have something to contribute?

Yeah its only when you get a flashing light that you should worry.

Given that its only an 09 car, surely you must have gotten some warranty with it? or was it a private sale?

does the trip computer trick work on the Mondeo's? or have you any other way of trying to read the error codes (OBDII code reader?)

shame that you didnt get a warranty to be honest.

Whats the service history of the car for the last three years? I dont suppose you have any OBD code readers of any form?
