I'd almost settled on a Mondeo estate but I keep being drawn back to these, just looking for some opinions... It'd be for a bike-hauler with occasional commuting. Budget up to £5000 and looking most likely for 1.9TDi PD engine and as nice an interior as poss. Some de-seating would occur... I imagine I'd leave one back seat in and the rest go in the attic.
(oh- not specifically for fuel economy reasons, I don't do mega miles so petrol would be fine- I just like oilburners)
I like driving so it's got to handle OK- more like a car than a van- but at the same time I don't expect mega performance Current car is a 90-bhp 1.8TDDI Focus with jelly for shocks, for comparison.
So 2 things I'm after really- one is owner experience/recommendations/warnings... The other is if there's anything else I should check out. The whole point of it is size so I'm not really considering anything much smaller.
Any advice much appreciated
