"Before you buy a Ford Mondeo (1993 - 2000) there are 40 common faults or wear items that you should check for. Our research amongst the experts that work on this specific model everyday, has identified:

11 official recall(s) that should have been completed
Our three-stage process makes it easy (even if you know nothing about cars) to spot these potential problems. For each fault we tell you:
What to look for (this is written so that it is easy to understand even if you know nothing about cars)
What it means if you find the fault
What to do (here we give you the streetwise options)
Here is just one example check for the Ford Mondeo (1993 - 2000):
What to look for
As you drive the car on a fairly flat road, loosen your grip on the steering wheel and check that the car continues in a relatively straight line. Mondeos are known to pull slightly to one side. If it pulls severely then there is a sub frame problem.
What it means (if you find this fault)
The sub frame (which is removed for a number of repairs including new clutch and some minor suspension repairs) may not have been properly aligned.
What to do (your options)
Negotiate a £60 discount or the sub frame realigned an the tracking reset. "
