I'm after a new car to replace my 09 Mondeo which I really like but is reaching that point of starting to be unreliable or at least having niggly issues.
Since diesel owners are clearly going to become hate objects soon (if not already ), I've been looking at similar replacements with petrol engines. I like the new 16+ plate) Mondeo as it's big and so am I but having tried the 1.5 ecoboost petrol, it feels a bit meh and I suspect that for my regular motorway driving plus fully loaded trips plus bikes on roof it'd be a bit overloaded.
There's a 2.0 ecoboost option but that's 240bhp (compared to 160 for the 1.5) which seems a bit boy racer to me. Otherwise it's back to diesel...
Any thoughts/suggestions/alternatives? Real world experience particularly of the 1.5 Mondeo would be very welcome..
Oh and separately, anyone tried out the new Ford Sync3 computer - that seems like something that's a big step up from the previous ones with the mobile app integration.
