Check out real-world situations relating to the Ford Mondeo 2008 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Ford Mondeo 2008: Battery draining
It has to be a power drain; there is no other plausible explanation. There is something that is not shutting down when you turn the car off. It could be a lamp in the boot, it could be a computer, there is something that is draining the battery. I would go to another auto electrician.Show more
Ford Mondeo 2008: Fuel pump troubles
You've got very little chance of getting any compensation from Ford, the car is four years old and out of warranty. I would suggest that in future you don't let the fuel level drop so low, that way you minimize the chances of picking up any rubbish from the bottom of the tank that might damage the fuel pump or block the fuel filter.Show more
Ford Mondeo 2008: Squeak from passenger side?
I’m sure it could be fixed; the problem a mechanic would face is finding what causes it. As for it being a warranty issue it depends largely on what the fault is found to be. If it’s a manufacturing fault it could be covered by the warranty, but if it’s something that’s simply come loose it might not be. The only way to find out is to establish the cause of the problem.Show more
Ford Mondeo 2008: Tyres wearing out quickly
Your experience with the tyres wearing down to the wires should be a lesson to you and others to conduct regular checks of tyres on their cars. It's not good enough to let it go until the tyres are so worn, and in a dangerous state, before you do anything about it.
Tyres wear at different rates on different cars, and the front tyres on a front-drive car like the Mondeo wear much faster than the rear tyres, and the wear pattern is completely different to what you have experienced on your rear-wheel drive Falcon. Take the advice given you by the Goodyear dealer and regularly rotate the tyres front to back. That way you will get better mileage out of them.Show more
