Hi guys, are there any ford owners around here? I've been trying to interact with focus and mondeo owners but it seems that they're quite hard to find here.

When I try to register on the fordclub.sg via the register page http://www.fordclubs...action=register - it can't be done because there's always an error on the verification picture...

So I really wonder where all the ford owners are hiding. Any idea? Pls help... thanks!

Hmm... I'd like to ask the current mondeo owners (mk3) what they think about their rides and their FCs... heard the 2.3 L variant is quite jialat with FC due to the heavy body and old duratec engine... are you driving a mondeo bro? and are you part of the club?

Should try to register yourself again if you want more info.

FC for my previously owned MK III can clocked about 500+km on a full tank base on 85% highway.

Had it for quite a while now, the FC is about 10.5km/l, 40/60 city/HW ride and 100 city is 7-8km/l. Did a trip to Malacca recently, it is about one third of the tank, rather well for driving between 140 to 180 kmh. pump up thereafter with only 15l for 220km traveled.

Sorry that I cannot help you with the forum there, didn't face such issues when I registered.

Ok thanks. I was hoping the FC will be slightly better but I guess can't expect much.

If you can get into the ford forum, can ask them if there's something wrong with their registration page? i.e the verification picture

thanks!

Clocked approximately 9.5-10km/L for 50% Highway/50% City. Was on 18" rims though. Quite decent FC for a car of such a size to be honest.

OT: If you are interested in getting the Mondeo which comes with 16" rims and want to upgrade to 17" titanium rims, feel free to PM me because I have a brand new set sitting in my house collecting dust. laugh.gif

If you are interested in the current Mondeo 2.3,... well, if you can wait till 2012, I believe they might bring in the 1.6 ECOBoost engine (direct injection turbo charged) with Powershift (dual clutch) gearbox. 180bhp/245Nm/ possible 14km/L with start/stop technology ...

The Mondeo is a wonderful car, good reliability, one of the best front wheel drive chassis, .... only thing is , the engine is not efficient enough ....

Thanks, never tried. Got myself a technical and service manual to better understand it.

am also patiently waiting for the ecoboost and powershift version.

Think the new s60 volvo that should be coming this year will have the ecoboost and powershift.

Volvo XC60 could be coming with the new Ecoboost 2.0T with powershift..... 210PS/350Nm. it could seriously undermine the popular Audi Q5 if its price sensibly.

That's the main concern about mondeo... it's 2.3 powerplant only generates 208Nm of torque... that's on the low side. And BHP is only 161... low for a 2.3 too.

I think regent has priced mondeo way above what it should be worth... esp. since this is the most basic Trend model only. Major rip off.

They used to bring in Titanium trim (NOT Titanium X) ..... but i think no more. The last i asked, they have only a beige colour sedan left for the titanium.
What's left now are the Trend.

And then, the OMV.... its so damn low.... only about 25k. I think Honda Civic already more than that.

If you want a good deal,... wait till March or April, when they want to clear their YoM 2009 cars... then they will give good deals.
Otherwise, better to wait for the ECOBoost + Powershift to come (probably 2012) .... or buy another car. like the Citroen C5, Renault Laguna, Skoda Superb, Alfa 159, Mazda 6 or the Opel Insignia.

High markups / margin on Ford cars are a well known fact, debated ad infinitum in MCF in the past .... until nobody wants to talk about it any more now.

Go to LTA's ONEMOTORING and look under cost of cars and you will understand why.
Look at the OMV, prevailing COE and selling price.

Why must one pay a premium for a non-luxury mass-market marque?
Its a free world. Ask anything you want and potential buyers will all but disperse.
There are always options.

Sad - cos the Focus and Modeo are really good cars. sad.gif

Another similar case is FIAT. How many are on SG roads?
