£150...cheap wbod 2003 ford mondeo titanium 2.0 tdci. motd

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Before i brave ebay or gumtree, i thought this may do someone a turn on here.

2003 ford mondeo 2.0 tdci, it has around 5/6 months mot left, its a bit scrufy and could do with a good valet, i have only ever used it as a workhorse in the 4 years ive had it. if i remember rightly it's done about 119,000 120,000 miles.

 

 

good points

 

it has never ever let me down in 4 years

it runs, drives and stops fine.

before me it was a one owner car with full main dealer history in the book, and around £9000 worth of receipts, so a cracking history file with it.

i have 2 spare wings for it, in the same colour code, cuz the missus dented each front wing.

i also have a spare starter motor for it.

 

bad points

 

bit of a knocking sound when you press the clutch in, but it has been like that for months and drives fine.

slight play in the steering rack, nowt major, i just live with it.

air bag light is on, i have checked the flashes and its the passenger seat, so maybe a loose connection, never looked, because it's only ever me in the car.

 

so if your stuck for something that will get you over the winter, then scrap it in the summer if you want, so free motoring.

 

theres probably things i#ve forgot, but i hate putting car ads on, hence i'd rather someone here had it.

 

also i can leave it taxed untill 29th ish, so you can get home.

 

any question, then message me.

all the best

Gary.

sorry all, ive been busy, yes its in coventry, the dmf was done about 6 years ago for around 800 quid at a ford main dealer according to receipts, so i dont know. all i know is its reliable. it was mint before i got my grubby hands on it lol. just one lady owner. i have all your emails, so to be fair it has to be first mail first. then if he doesnt want it, i shall move down trhe list. i just want someoneto get a bit of use out of it, as i can't be arsed with prats on ebay and swap for an xbox gumtree.

all the best

Is it Ink Blue Metallic? If so, and if the spare N/S wing ends up surplus to requirements for whatever reason, I'll have it. Edit: actually it's the O/S that's dented, had to find a pic to check  :oops:

It deserves scrapping for that steering wheel muff

No Muff Too Tuff, just dive or drive at five.

 

That is mighty good value and will do someone on here a good turn. Be good to see it become a bike as we have lost regular updates on a few bikes recently.

Gadg - If it comes back to you soonish say in the next month or so, would you be interested in selling on? I could do with a Diesel motor and these Mondeos are appealing to me in a strange way.

      My Compact is up for sale again, MOT until November.
      Manual, 2l turbo diesel, 165k miles.
      £750

      I've replaced a load of stuff over the years, been meticulous with servicing. Brand new turbo, crank pulley, injectors, inlet seals, handbrake mech, vortex filter etc). It had a new BMW battery from dealer a couple of years ago. New black kidney grilles. New spare wheel, toolkit, books, wallet, first aid kit box etc
      Swirl flaps in the inlet have been blanked. Has black M-sport alcantara interior, with bucket seats (fully adjustable) and leather bits. It's really clean inside and out. Cool fold out rear windows like old Japanese cars but they’re auto electric powered
      17" E90 alloy wheels with four 5 month old Landsail tyres
      Two keys, service/manuals, dealer keyring, etc.

      The only things wrong with it:
      the glow plug ECU is reporting a fault.
      The front bumper is stone chipped.
       It has always started first turn of the key in whatever weather in the four years I've had this, so I'm sure the glow plugs are working, but it's just giving an error. It has had this fault in INPA since I've had it.

      It shifts quite well with 150bhp, I've managed 70 - 80mpg on a gentle run over 200 miles, but always get an average of 60mpg. There's no rust on the car, it's pretty mechanically sound I've done close to 70k miles in it I think. Only the crank pulley has failed on me in that time.

      First some background:
      I was brought up with no car interest, a car was transport and nothing more which resulted in a selection of poor cheap cars being the cars of my youth.
       
      Fast forward many years (just over 9 years ago) and I have a wonderful* Vauxhall Vectra estate to carry us about. Unfortunately it is crap and throws fault codes at us with nothing being there when it is checked (even at Vauxhall)
       
      As Mrs T is the main pilot of this chariot with the two little miss T's on board, it has to go.
      The hunt is on for the new steed to safely and comfortably carry the family around. I have a company car at the time so big journeys are not an issue.
       
      ebay is my weapon of choice to find the new family car. It has to be good value cheap for no other reason than I am tight.
       
      Weeks of research with lots of cars that are too expensive and too far away for easy collection end up in my watch list.
      Finally a possible is spotted in Fife. I go and have a look and find a poor looking but solid car. One previous owner and lots of history.
       
      The auction was to end on the Saturday at midday, we were going to be out! I decided on how much I was willing to gamble on it and on the Saturday morning I put in my max bid but straight away it went to my max bid, I was winning but it had three hours to go with no room for me to go up! We went out anyway.
       
      I spent the next three hours kicking myself for not bidding more while we were out as it was the first car I had seen that fitted my criteria. Fate was in charge.
       
      On returning home I go straight on ebay to find 'Congratulations.............'
      For the grand total of £500 I had just won this fine vehicle!
       

       
      It has 5 months MOT and after fitting seat belts in the rear for the girls car seats it is pushed into daily service.
      My gamble and subsequent use results in a perfectly reliable car that actually does what it is supposed to do.
       
      Even more importantly Mrs T loves it so a win all round.
       
      All my cars have names (most are earned over a bit of time) and this one is called 'Gwendolen' ( G reg car and from Wales originally. I hate the name but I am not going to argue)
       
      That sums up part one, more will be along later (probably much later)

      Copied over from Shite In Miniature...
      Note for future reference...  I've decided most of my Matchbox (-sized) cars can go.  It's a vast collection,   Most have been repainted at least once - by me, obviously.  My eyes and hand aren't good enough to do them again.  I've got way too many to list so ask if there's something you want and if I've got it, we can do a deal.  Most will be 50p each plus postage, so it'll make sense to build up a parcel.
       
      I thought it best to do this, then I'm not clogging up the main thread.  This could well go on for months.
