Trim levels[edit]

I have added the trim levels but the formatting is messed up, can anyone fix it? --Sunfazer (talk) 14:37, 11 March 2006 (UTC)


I see the intro states the Ford Mondeo is a "large family sedan" whereas the class classification is under midsize. There is a contradiction. 22:19, 17 March 2006 (UTC)

Pop Culture[edit]

The pop culture section suggests Tony Blair talked to a Ford Mondeo owning constituant during campaining in 1992. The constituant cannot have owned a Ford Mondeo as they were not released until Aug 1993 (in the UK). —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:54, 7 April 2006

V6 24v[edit]

Noted in the article its mentioned the v6 has the ability to run on half of its 24 valves. This isnt the case, the v6 has an inlet runner manifold control that opens and closes inlet ports at certain revs, so that below 3k it opens 6, above it opens all 12. Basically its a cheap way of variable valve timing, but does nothing with the valves, although theres a notable change in performance when the second set of 6 are opened and the engine note changes. They are known for gumming up with oil deposits and frequently stop working due to the control box on mk2 v6's being mounted on top of one bank of clyinders. Mk1 V6's have vacuum operated ones and dont dont suffer from this problem. The V6 is largely reliable although prone to headgasket failure on the rear bank mainly caused by a plastic water pump impeller which breaks up......

4wd versions[edit]

No v6 2.5 mondeo came with 4wd, it was a 2.0 only thing, and only on the mk1 mondeo

I have a v6 2.5 mondeo with 4wd - It belonged to one of the Ford Directors and was made specially. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:14, 15 September 2011 (UTC)

ST versions[edit]

Also noted in the article are discrepancies about ST24's and RSA packs. Originaly the ST24 appeared as a saloon only in late 1996 early 1997, no body kit, but a rear spolier and 12 spoke alloys were fitted. Interior was half leather. Later the hatch version of the ST24 appeared, that came with the RSAP kit, and 4 spoke alloys. The saloon then could be specced with the RSA kit at extra cost. ST24 estates were availble but from when im not sure. The ST200 did not replace the ST24, but was an addition to the range, also available in estate form and the supposedly limited edition ST200 limited in saloon form, but dealers often didnt fit the limited edition badges, and its rumoured theres more than 200 ST200 saloons, probably 400. White ST200's with lower spec interior trim levels were produced for the police.

'SUVs' etc..[edit]

why, on an article about a car which is not sold in the US, is the phrase sports-utility-veihcle (and other american english) used so much?? yes the parent company may be american but the car, as titled in this article, is not an american one. ~m

update picture[edit]

the picture at the top should reflect the current mondeo, and be updated to a mondeo Mk 5. Preferably a hatch (most popular) ~ m 24/12/07

East Asian Variations[edit]

I am hoping to see more on the Mondeo Metrostar and other east Asian variations. I see the section heading, is the content being developed? Thanks.IFHP (talk) 06:24, 14 January 2008 (UTC)


There is a {{cleanup}} tag on the main page of this article. I think it needs the "overview" infobox separating into {{Infobox Automobile generation}}, and that should help the layout greatly. -- Teutonic_Tamer (talk to Teutonic_Tamer) 10:00, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

outdated photo[edit]

the current photo at the top of the page is of an outdated photo. Could someone please upload a free photo of a mk4 mondeo as it is confusing, seeing as there is a section on the new mondeo model. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:27, 27 May 2008 (UTC)

Expand Content[edit]

Considering that Australia is a rather small market, especially compared to Europe, which is the Mondeo's home market, I find it awkward that this article seems to include more information about the Mondeo's significance in Australia than in Europe. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Caspcasp (talkcontribs) 05:18, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

Mk #s[edit]

Some anonymous idiot altered the Mk2 to to "Mk1.5" and lowered the Mk3 and Mk4 numbers accordingly all through the article.

I have just been through and corrected the obvious instances, there may be a few more lurking that need cleaning up. bad·monkey talk to the {:() :: 11:29, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

It seems that anonymous users have been playing with the mark numbers all month. I've reverted the latest spate of it to what appears to be correct. --Sable232 (talk) 14:31, 27 June 2010 (UTC)

i remember the mk2 hatchback was sold as the Ford Verona in the UK-- (talk) 16:29, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

The article is wrong. The Mk2 was never known as the Mk1 facelift, and the Mk3 was never known as the "true mk2". It's always been known as the Mk3, just take a look at any magazine, review or website to see this. --Monkeyra (talk) 09:35, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

UK Saloon[edit]

On the Ford UK website, for the last 6 months or so (as of Oct 2010), the saloon variant of the 2010 Mondeo is no longer available. It is available on the Irish site though. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:03, 27 October 2010 (UTC)

MK3 engine?[edit]

it says "For the Mk3, the Zetec engine was dropped, while the all-new 1.8 and 2.0 L Duratec engines were introduced.", yet we have a 2002 Ford Mondeo with a Zetec engine (well, it was sold as a Zetec, but there are no engine badges on the back, just 'Mondeo' Biggles1000 (talk) 08:47, 1 October 2011 (UTC)
