Thread: Hi from the dark side

    Default Hi from the dark side

    I'm another from the XR5 forums who has come over to say hi and introduce myself.

    I'm on my 2nd XR5, first one was rubbish, 2nd one is much better. I had a Focus but after range of issues, I traded it in for a Mondeo. I had hoped that lemons don't come in pairs, so I thought I'd have another shot and get the Mondeo. Not as quick or as much fun, but definitely a much better car in terms of comfort and of course reliability. Strangely enough, my grandpa spec Mondeo is actually better on fuel than the focus.

    Anyway, enough babble from me. Heres a photo of the Focus and now the Mondeo.

    I'm pretty sure they changed them late last year from Factory. I agree, the other ones were ordinary at best, these are nicer. I believe they also fixed an issue with the rear hatch lid as I think their was problem with water getting in.

    I'm keen to keep it stock performance wise because I like warranty. After getting a new gearbox in the Focus and the time it took to get that, I'm keen to retain the warranty on this. It's more for peice of mind than anything else.

    Cheers

    I think that would have been me. We were just on our way home from the Hyperdome at 12.30.

    Thanks Team Green, Dan_3MPS and Nem.
