If I had a working car mate, I'd have made the trip with you lol

Lower wishbones are a weak point. The bushes are made of jelly!

They are weapons, Rev easy sound gorgeous and aint half quick!

Expansion tank caps are a known weak point and all!

A little look.....

"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:

14 engine check(s) to make
9 interior item(s) that you need to ensure work
3 wear item(s) to spot on the suspension
3 area(s) on the bodywork to inspect
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. "

from bits to do?
