The Mondeo has lent its name to this class, so total is its dominance. It's an incredibly good car. Very well rounded, it delivers, and with some style, on all levels. In terms of fitness for purpose one of the best cars at any price.
The Mondeo is refined, comfortable, well equipped, spacious with class-leading ride and handling. Plus there are vast numbers in the market at low used prices.
Diesel Mondeos outsell petrols by 5 to 1. The less desirable petrols are often slightly cheaper but the massive variety of diesels in the market gives far greater choice. The Mondeo is a big heavy car and the diesel engine suits it very well.
The Mondeo is optimized around the diesel motors and the 2.0 litre diesel engine suits the car best. It is a tough, proven engine that is cheap to maintain. The Spec to go for is mid ranking Edge trim. This has all the extras you need.
As with all mass market family cars there is a great deal of variance in the market price of the current Mondeo. Mileage and spec are critical. Pay £8,800 for a three year old mid range 2.0 diesel with 40 to 50,000 miles on the clock.
The best time to buy is at three years when the first MOT has been issued. After that depreciation is going to be a steady 10 to 15% on the 2.0 diesel.
Used Car Expert recommends that you try to buy after a big drop in depreciation and before the next one, so with the current Ford Mondeo you would aim to buy a 4 year old and sell it before it is 5 years old.
Diesel Ford Mondeo cars lose most over the first year (from new to 1 year old), so that is the best ‘nearly new’ buy in terms of car for money.
Petrol Ford Mondeo cars lose least between years 1 and 3, so this is the best buy if you want to keep the car for a while.
Petrol Ford Mondeo cars lose least between years 2 and 4, so that is the best buy on older cars.
