In Topic: Mondeo Or Focus, Which Is Best Value For Money ?

01 July 2014 - 11:01 PM

That is a fair point James, the reason I am looking at the 1.8 Flexifuel is because it is what 8/10 Focus estates are on the second hand market in Sweden.

 

The Mondeo sounds like a risky buy unless I can find one with swapped injectors and I have never found a comfortable seating position in a Focus. I guess I'll just need to keep looking for something else.

 

Thanks for the advice though

Ohh that's definitely a cost I want to avoid! Maybe id be better to go for a focus

Do you know anything about the 1.8 Flexifuel? I've got the 1.6 duratec in my Fiesta but I think it would be less great in a Focus due to the added weight

They injectors dont sound like a fun repair! Should they have been changed and is that included the standard service?

 

At the moment i travel about 600-700km a week, but when I move to Sweden uni will be much closer so it will only be local trips on a weekly basis and then a few longer trips to like the Alps, Germany and around Sweden

I am in the same situation now as hhhugues was 3 years ago.

I am moving to Sweden from Australia for 18months and want an estate to throw junk and friends in for the road trips I plan to have.

I am looking at either a 04/05 Moneeo 2.0 or 05/06 Focus 1.8 Flexifuel both with 150,000-200,000km on the clock. The mission for the car is to be as trouble free and cheap as possible before I get rid of it. Which would be best on petrol?

How did you go with the Mondeo? Is it still the pick or am I better to look at a Focus?

In Topic: Comparison Of Old St And New St

Great comparison Dave! Proved for a much better read than my Commercial Law text book

 

How have you found the quality of the interior of the new ST compared to the old? When I get out of my normal mk6.5 and into my friends normal 7, I just feel that the plastics aren't as nice for some reason. They just feel a bit flimsier. Maybe it is just our shoddy Thai built versions in Australia and we were lucky enough to get German built 6.5's.

 

And as you said the simplicity of the 6.5's interior is nice. Even 7 years down the track I still find it a nice place to be.
