Ford Mondeo 2.0L Ghia X Estate.
For Sale is my trusty Mondeo Estate, which is being sold as spares or repairs as it failed its MOT earlier this week.
I have owned this car since April 2005, and it has NEVER let me down. It starts first time every time, and the engine is running as sweet as a nut! I am the 3rd owner from new and the guy who owned it before me even had new wiper blades fitted at the Ford Garage!
The car is a Ghia X so is rammed full of goodies, Cruise Control, Full Leather Interior, Air Conditioning, Electric Sunroof, Electric Windows, Heated Seats, Electric Mirrors, Alloy Wheels......the list goes on!
If I start with the good bits first....as mentioned, the engine and gearbox are perfect. The engine has had an oil and filter change every 10000 miles, so has been well looked after and still returns over 40mpg if driven sensibly. The leather interior is virtually unmarked, and the drivers seat is all electric. Both front seats are heated. The Cruise Control works perfectly and the A/C works but could ideally do with a re-gas to make it icy cold once again. The two front tyres have very good tread, at least 5mm on both tyres (Firestone Firehawks).
Like I said, in seven years driving, not once has this car let me down.
Now, the not so good bits!!!!
If I start with what the car failed its MOT on, as read from the fail sheet: Front Bumper has a sharp edge (cracked), Offside Rear Sill Panel is damaged affecting strength within 30cms of a body mounting, Rear Sub-frame corroded and seriously weakened, Nearside Rear Lower Trailing Arm severely distorted, Offside RearTrailing Arm severely distorted, Nearside & Offside Front Brake Pipe excessively corroded...and finally...the handbrake has no reverse travel.
To add to the above, the passenger rear door does not open on the central locking, the two rear tyres need replacing (I have another set of alloy wheels with brand new tyres listed seperately which were on the car), dents all round, no boot catch, airbag light flashing, the sunroof tilts buts does not slide back, the radio does not work, and no spare wheel as again I am selling this seperately.
I think this car would be great for spares, and the leather interior must be worth a few quid to someone. I have been told, that with the alloy wheels, this car should get about £250 in scrap value, but hopefully some of the parts are useful to someone out there......alternatively, these estates are very strong and do well banger racing!
The car will only be sold complete, and I will not be breaking any parts off of it.
I have tried my best to describe, and picture the car as honestly as possible, but please do contact me if you have any extra questions.
**PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT TO VIEW SOME LARGER PICTURES BELOW**
The car is located in Hitchin, Hertfordshire (10 minutes from juntion 8 of the A1, 15 minutes from juntion 10 of the M1) and due to having no MOT will need to be trailered away.
Cash on collection please.
The car is advertised elsewhere so may be removed from auction at anytime.
