As some of you may have seen on the Focus forum my MK2.5 Focus is very broken after a seal blew in the turbo, and as of yet the warranty company have not paid out.
In the mean time I went and picked my self up a bit of a bargain.
A nice W Reg MK2 Mondeo Estate. 113,000 on the clock.
Body work has no dents in it, and paint work is in very good shape.
Alloys are immaculate, no curbing what so ever.
Looks like it's been serviced well, and has good a set of tires all round.
There is however one strange thing that I'm trying to get my head around... Acceleration.
I don't know if the clutch is shot, or the traction control is doing something but when I try and accelerate to over take, it just revs up and doesn't deliver full power to the wheels. Its fine if you gentally accelerate, but giving it the boot is another story. However, switched the traction control off, and I did notice a difference in response. The test will be later on the motorway however.
Any ideas on that one?
Only other things to look at is a CV gator, need to see if that's been done, along with a scored brake disk and brake pipes showing wear.
