And it's not because I had a 1999 Mondeo 2.0 GLX for six months and it was a piece of junk; The reason why I'm starting to get sick and tired of the Mondeo, it's because it's a hugely overrated car.
"It's a driver's car", "Reliable", "As good as a BMW 3-Series", "Good value for money".
-I beg your pardon?
It' can't be reliable. The Mk1 is exctinct of the roads, the Mk2 is going the same way and go check every customer satisfaction survey; The Mondeo is always below average. In fact, the Mondeo is not much better than a Vectra or a Passat in terms of reliability.
It can't be a driver's car. It drives well for a front-wheel-drive barge, but it's not a driver's car by any stretch of imagination. Not even the ST220 can be considered a driver's car; Still got a lot power going through the front wheels.
And if I were a BMW 3-Series owner, I would take offence to have my car compared to something that has ZERO street cred.
It's ****** expensive! Ford is out of whack to charge £33,000 for a fully loaded Titanium X Sport 2.5 5 door hatchback. You can either buy a base Jaguar XF 3.0 V6 Turbodiesel, something German with an Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz badge, a Passat CC GT V6, Saabs, Volvos and etc. Or a fully loaded Insignia Elite NAV 2.8 V6 4x4, which still would cost a grand less than the similarly equipped Mondeo.
So you may disagree with all of I've just said, but I really needed to get it off my chest.
Thank you for your time.
