Ford Mondeo 4: we understand the shortcomings
The car belongs to the class D and has a history since 1992. Now the concern is already releasing the 5th generation, but the four, which began to be mass-produced in 2007, still remains relevant for many motorists.
Pay attention to the weaknesses of the Mondeo, and start with noise insulation. Here it is presented not at its best. When driving in the cabin is quite noisy. But this is all a matter of habit, and in no way this factor is not reflected on the reliability of the machine as a whole.
As for the engines, gasoline versions prevail in the Russian market (from 1.6 to 2.5 liters). Among them, the most popular acquired 2-liter with 4 separate ignition modules. It is they who can fail prematurely, thus creating a motor build. The problem is solved by a simple replacement.
