I've still got mine at 164k,bought an 11 plate 2.2 Mondeo estate to replace it but keep finding excuses to keep it.

My Estate went straight through the MOT today with just a couple of advisories :D ,i was chatting to the tester and i said to him that i believe if the car had failed then it would then be illegal to drive it from then on although it still had 2 weeks of the original MOT to run,he said that is a com...

Well i've gone and been and done it,i've now got a 2011 Mondeo 2.2 Titanium Sport X estate (200ps) with 61k on the clock,they class it as a MK 4.5 First impressions are very good except the fuel consumption,gone are the heady days of nearly 50 mpg from the 406 as i am now down to high 30's low 40's ...
