Heu guys,

Was wondering if anybody has driven/own the new mondeo?

They seem like a well optioned car (6 stacker mp3 on the zetec would be awesome), but am after some honest comments from those with experience.

Thanks

I'm looking at the Zetec (approx 34k) with the 6 disc mp3 etc.

Havent driven one yet, but a 2.3L 6 speed auto sounds interesting. What is the build quality like on them?

they do one of each, XR5 turbo focus and xr5 turbo mondeo. The XR5's both need to be driven very hard, and be at operating temp before they go at their full potential, and they are very nice cars, not as quick as XR6 turbo, but much better finished, and cheaper imo
