Righto, since my evenings have been taken over renovating the house again I have no time for two car shitery.

I fired the Mondeo up for the first time in a month to move it out of the way of a delivery of 12 tonnes of hardcore and realised how neglected it is.

Unlike the galaxy, where I have fixed things, the Mondeo is very much in the ‘two steps backward phase’.

The eml is now flashing but a quick run on my private* road confirmed it will drives fine so maybe because it’s been sat?

I’m not going to fix the bits myself, nor am I going to have spare funds to pay a man to do so given the eye bleeding rate cash is pissing away on the house again so this is a roffle :)

I paid £500 but given it’s gone backwards, but still has ticket to July I think £5 a head is fair, or 3 for a lucky £13.

Good
Full black dead cow
2.5 V6 petroleums
Full main stealer history
Heated bum cheeks
Ticket to July
Half a tank of petrol included
Brand new fitted boot liner...mmm rubber

Bad
Needs a radio
New centre console to fix marks caused by my ham fists
Noisy wheel bearing drivers side needs attention (new pair supplied)
Locking wheel nut is AWOL making wheel bearing a nuisance to do
EML is now on but seems to drive ok
It’s a bit denty and scuffed around the place but nothing dangerous.

Indifferences
Replacement centre console to fix scratches caused by me trying to get out radio included
30mpgs ish

It’s in Castleford, West Yorkshire.

Pics to follow.

Unsure, I’ll don balaclava on the way to work, reconstruct a perimeter intrusion and report back.

It does have an auto dimming rear view mirror so if your carjacker has a head torch at least you won’t be dazzled during the ordeal.

I’ve stuck about 800 miles on it without drama. It’s noisier at certain speed but the radio was drowning it out till I broke it.

No major vibrations through the wheel just a drone.

Just to add, I’ll consider swaps for anything that will go on a classic policy seeing as the Galaxy is dropping a bit of middle pedal fluid so a spare classic* car will work as I can’t get the galaxy if mondeo on one.
