Carrying on the Inside Line series, we move on from last months look at the popular Vauxhall Corsa. We now have turned our attention to a car that is significantly bigger, the Ford Mondeo, which will receive some much-needed attention.
The Mondeo, often considered a fleet favourite, received an all-new look in 2007. It wasn’t just on the surface that the Mondeo experienced some changes, as the range gained some new engines including a downsized 1.6l petrol engine, and new 1.6 and 1.8l diesel engines to sit alongside the established 2.0 and 2.2l versions.
The latest version of the Mondeo benefited from the new EcoBoost and Duratorq engines in later incarnations, as well as Ford’s stop-start system.
These new technologies that have appeared on the Mondeo will provide technicians with additional challenges, some of which we have outlined below.
Next month we’ll be looking at the BMW 3 Series.
If you have expertise, knowledge and insight to share, we would be delighted to hear from you. It will make our Inside Lines feature an even more powerful tool for our workshop readership.
