I just bought this a few days ago to replace my Sebring Suffice to say, I have come to my senses and am getting rid of that thing, ASAP
This should be a nice replacement though...
2010 Ford Mondeo Titanium
2.0 Ecoboost with Powershift auto
Brisbane Brown metallic
Decently optionied, albeit far away from having everything. More than enough for me tho as it's got all I cared about.
Only 97.000kms (about 60k miles)
Picked it up last night, here it is next to my dad's imported '13 Explorer Sport with the 3.5 Ecoboost:
My Chrysler was getting on my nerves due to it leaking and the seating position was a bit crappy on longer drives. Also, it was a really dumb idea to go from a Ram to a tiny 944 and a Sebring. I wanted a car where I could basically just chuck anything in the back without having to worry if it'd fit.
I looked at quite a few different wagons. Didn't really think about Ford until my old man bought a imported Explorer Sport a few months ago. That thing is pretty cool (although the transfer case already exploded and got replaced by the deler ) and so I started looking at Fords.
A Focus was too small for what I wanted, but the Mondeo fits all my bills. I can sit nicely in it, the trunk is huge, it's nice and quiet at highway speeds...
The 2.0 Ecoboost is my first Turbo, and it's a pretty different experience from all the n/a's I've been driving the past 13 years. It's got the exact same hp as my Sebring, but it feels infinitely faster and more powerful. I quite like it. And I already found out you can flash the Ecu to the map of the 240hp model. Or even higher, up to 280... maybe I'll do that, maybe I won't. We'll see.
Oh, and this thing has just been gathering dust the past few months:
I've been slowly collecting maintenance parts to get it up to spec.
