The previous Mondeo shares platform and engine/transmission with Wowo S80, the new model probably has carried over platform too.

 

I have never owned a Ford B4.  Anyone can comment on reliability and repair/service costs?

from experience, its relatively reliable compared to the French and VW. 

Parts not cheap due to lack of availability. Some parts are shared with volvo, e.g. powershift transmission.

 

Solid car and nice drive. Lack image.

i test drove the car.  it handles well, relatively powerful and has some nice gadgets inside as well.   i liked the look of this car, but doesn't seem like many others think so.

 

my wife prefers a smaller car so had to pass on it.

 

i m not sure why it is not selling well, but gotta say, the new hyundai sonata has some resemblance to it.  

 

i read that at the bottom 2 months back, a bro managed to get an offer at 154k for mondeo.  hyundai sonata was offered at 121,999 for non sun roof version then.

That's because most people in SG have been thought to work like herds.  Go with what you like - but too bad it's too big for wifey.

 

I owned a Mondeo new back in 1998 - the one with a oval grille and liked it a lot.

Saw it on PIE earlier today. Very stylish and handsome car, was in black colour. Really got very good road presence.

 

This 2.0T is not the ecoboost anymore?

agree on that for sure.  what i mean is sonata's slight resemblance may have put pple off mondeo, but dun think so lah.  in general i m not sure ford has been experiencing declining sales since there were many previous owners of focus and mondeo.

 

for mondeo, pple should compare with Q50 where prices are actually pretty close?  can't really say can't afford coz if can buy >160k car, i think 180k+ for S80 and A6 is not that much diff?

as my nick suggests, ended up with a subaru forester XT, has the power and handling, has the height and shorter length/width that my wife wants.

Anyone been to Regent to find out what their cover and hidden specs are? Since the Mondeo price is pretty competitive I'm considering.

Also family feels Ford doesn't have resale value. Previous Ford owners got any advisement on that?

check if its Titanium model... if it is, it should be the highest spec already

 

in singapore, there are only 2 cars with superior resale value - Mercedes and Toyota.

BMW and Honda are next, ... all the others are about the same.

just got the mondeo brochure although i did not visit the showroom.

 

it's turbo charged 240ponies and 345Nm.  they have a 5 dr with moon roof and 4 door with sunroof.  plenty of features too. 

 

about $168k after discount (as told to me).  

 

i think it is worth taking a look at the car. :-)

I actually thought it looked too much like a Kia K5 except for the AM front end. The rear is almost identical, and the same from the side.

 

I tested the Mondeo then 30min later put money down on a Q50. The Q50 has better equipment, better seats, Real Wheel Drive (meaning no Torque Steer like on the Mondeo), higher OMV and, from a personal point of view, a better name under Infiniti than Ford.

I owned it  (Mondeo 2L) till coe almost mati.(last year- so it lived with me for almost 10 years!) ... was quite reliable.... treated me well.... after 5th year warranty send it to one of the workshops in Bukit Merah(weng Fatt i think so)... much cheaper than Agent and buy the parts yourself from one of the stockist in Desker Road area; never paid more than $500 ever for service + parts....except last one year the hand brake (cannot pull up or engage) calliper give some problems but the mechanic just adjust here and there ... good till deliver back for scrapping, I guess

How is FC with the 240hp EcoBoost on the previous gen? I just read an article the other day saying Ford got sued for lousy FC in EcoBoosts...

I went to view and test drive the mondeo.

 

according to the SE, fuel consumption is ard 9km/l, lower than specs.

 

I don't like some of the fittings like the boot release lever is on left passenger side, handbrake button (no lever) is on passenger side instead of driver side.  

 

price dropped abit. 5 door ard $166k.  

 

i struck it off my want-to-own list......
