Yup the car is pretty exp to maintain back in our country and haveheard it is highly unreliable esp with the electric seats and the CD changer which is a bomb to replace..BUT..the same Mondeos are used as taxis here in UAE which means you might get parts pretty decently prices and without feeling the pinch! what say Guys??

hey RPM are u serious??? i just talked with the mondeo guy..i ask his registration number but he said i have to first visit his place at bandra and then only i can get it.i did some searching my self after i read this article i talked with a mechanic at wasan ford.he also said what you all said.he said this car has some serious elecrtical problesm.
so i think i should drop this idea.
but i should say mondeo is a stunner to look at !

Since you have upped your budget significantly,why not consider a second hand NHC instead.

Or maybe even a new car in the 5.5-6 lakh price range.The OHC is a great car but age has caught up with it now[although there are some exceptions but not that easy to find now].
