Our trusty and comfortable Mondeo has finished its six-month stint with AM.
Since its last review, the salesman’s saloon has returned to local Ford dealer TC Harrison in Peterborough for a service.
TC Harrison could not be faulted, its second solid performance after the Mondeo requirted warranty repairs.
After collecting the car and carrying out the service, we got a phone call to upsell two new front tyres.
When the vehicle was returned, the member of staff was smart, helpful and pleasant.
For a final tick, we received another phone call a couple of days later to ensure we had been happy with everything.
Other than its weak pneumatic struts in the tailgate, which were quickly fixed under warranty, running the Mondeo has been hassle-free.
Our model, the Titanium X, is jam-packed with kit and stands apart from the standard Mondeo and aligns itself closer to BMW 3 Series and Audi A4.
Aside from its premium competitors, a dealer’s main worry should be how to differentiate it from its arch competitor, the rec-ently launched Vauxhall Insignia.
Its like-for-like Insginia rival costs £24,475, puts out 154g/km CO2 and does 48.7mpg, making it a greener, cheaper and all-round friendlier choice.
