What's on this page

Ford Mondeo

The Falcon wasn't Ford's only decently sized sedan. The Mondeo launched in Australia in 1995, and it's currently offered in various guises, including a sedan, fastback and a station wagon, in petrol and diesel front-wheel-drive versions.

Its main competitor is the Toyota Camry, but the Mondeo is priced and positioned higher than the fleet-friendly Toyota. Current prices range from $37,490 for the Mondeo Ambiente TDCi to $38,990 for the Mondeo Ambiente TDCi.

Partly as a result of people looking to SUVs rather than sedans, and partly due to its relatively high price compared to its competition, the Mondeo has struggled to gain sales traction in recent years.

This vehicle is also known as Ford Contour (North America), Ford Taurus (North America), Ford Fusion (Americas).

Ford Mondeo Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Ford Mondeo here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Why does my 2013 Ford Mondeo wagon only shift gears properly in manual mode?

    This is a bit of a weird one because the only difference between using manual mode and fully-automatic mode is that you tell the gearbox what gear to be in in the former, and the gearbox decides for itself in the latter. Beyond that, the exact same process is going on inside the transmission. Which means, I’d expect the same problems to be apparent regardless of what mode you were driving in.

    Your gearbox is doing what’s known as `slipping’ or `flaring’ and that can be caused by a number of things. Those include low transmission-fluid level, low fluid-pressure caused by a worn pump or accumulators, a damaged torque converter or worn out bands and clutches inside the gearbox. The low fluid level is easy to check and address, but anything else probably points to either a new gearbox of a rebuild of the current one.

    The wild card is the difference behaviour between auto and manual mode, so perhaps it’s a problem with the electronic solenoids that control the shifts. It could be that the gearbox is not shifting properly in automatic and will only behave when you prod it via the manual-shift mode. A scan at a workshop might give a few clues in this regard.

  • Why does my 2009 Ford Mondeo keep going into limp mode?

    It sounds like the stability-control program is throwing up random fault codes that are telling the on-board computer that something’s wrong with this very important piece of safety technology. At that point, the protocol could be to send the car into limp-home mode to avoid having a faulty stability-control system create any problems that could cause a crash. But who knows, because there are literally hundreds of systems on a modern car that could cause this sort of malfunction.

    Because the ESP light only comes on sometimes before the limp-home condition occurs, perhaps the two are related but not reliant on each other. While the engine limp-home mode is usually associated with a problem under the bonnet, the ESP light is more likely to be triggered by a problem with the braking or throttle-by-wire system. Certainly, the latter could also trigger a limp-home response from the engine.

    Have the car scanned by a workshop and see what fault codes pop their heads up. That will save a lot of time and money compared with changing components until you find the one at fault.
