Ford Mondeo III - 2.0 TDCi [2010] and Bailey

Mike reviewed on a Ford Mondeo III - 2.0 TDCi [2010] (103 Kw/140 bhp year: may 2010 - december 2014) and a Bailey Pageant Moselle of (laden) 1337 kg.
More details >>>

Excellent stability, although the weights are different due to my car being just over 1700kgs, I was disappointed with the towing economy, solo is excellent always around 51ish mpg but towing was down to 25.8mpg, I had hoped for better


Ford Mondeo III - 2.0 16v and Lunar

Roger reviewed on a Ford Mondeo III - 2.0 16v (107 Kw/146 bhp year: june 2007 - december 2014) and a Lunar Quasar 462 of (laden) 1175 kg.
More details >>>

I have towed my Lunar Quasar 462 to Slovenia, Croatia, southern France and Italy in the last 4 years. Each holiday covering 4 k miles. Provided you don't labour the engine when starting off, it tows beautifully both from the point of view of speed/ acceleration and stability.

Ford Mondeo 2.0 TDCI, Towing a lunar lexon FB,I went to Aberdeen,through a lot of little towns en route, we still managed to acheive an amazing 35.8 mpg, some cars wont even give you that without towing a van


Ford Mondeo - 2.0 TDDi and Caravan

Sarah reviewed on a Ford Mondeo - 2.0 TDDi (85 Kw/116 bhp year: november 2000 - august 2002) and a Caravan 750 kg of (laden) 1000 kg.
More details >>>

WE have a 2002 Mondeo estate 2.0 TDDI, this car tows our unit like a dream you don't even know you are towing it! Economy is brilliant, tons of power, our caravan is a lightweight older (abbey piper ) van , laden still doesn't exceed 850kg (as we went to a weighbridge) so even this review isn't totally accurate as we'd get even better results. I don't know why more people don't consider this car as a caravan workhorse, cheap to pick up all in all a brilliant car.

More details >>>

excellent for towing our pegasus verona. plenty of power and no trouble on inclines or steeper hills. Moving off on a steep incline in the wet you need to be prepared for a bit of wheel spin if you apply the revs too quickly, but would thoroughly recommend as a good tow vehicle


Ford Mondeo III Wagon - 2.0 TDCi [PowerShift] and Bailey

Dennis Murcott reviewed on a Ford Mondeo III Wagon - 2.0 TDCi [PowerShift] (120 Kw/163 bhp year: may 2010 - december 2014) and a Bailey Unicorn Seville of (laden) 1350 kg.
More details >>>

I tow a 2 birth Bailey Unicorn Seville Maximum Weight 1433Kg. My 2011 Ford Mondeo Estate is the 2.0 Tdci, 163 bhp, with an automatic power shift gearbox. The Mondeo tows the Caravan effortlessly. This is the best tow car I have ever owned. It would be easy to forget that you are towing a caravan behind the car. The power of the car is more than enough to accelerate comfortably and you never have to slow down on motorway or dual-carriageway hills. It is also very stable, crosswinds and overtaking lorries do not affect stability. There is also a huge amount of storage space in the Mondeo. I would definitely recommend the Mondeo estate 2.0tdci as a great tow car.


Ford Mondeo - 2.2 TDCi and Bailey

Tom reviewed on a Ford Mondeo - 2.2 TDCi (114 Kw/155 bhp year: september 2004 - june 2007) and a Bailey Ranger 500/5 of (laden) 1244 kg.
More details >>>

Absolutely superb towing capability this car has! Bags of grunt and torque for towing. I towed with the 2.0l equivelant and that was pretty good too. Mine is a 55 reg 2.2 tdci Titanium X with 110k on the clock now so getting on a bit, and we've just taken our heavily laden 2004 Bailey Ranger 500\5 from Manchester to Somerset for a week. The car didn't miss a beat, or slow down on any of the steep hills. I tend to leave it in 5th gear and use cruise control to stick to just above 60 on the speedo to make good progress and not hold anyone up. Take-up from standstill, mid-range acceleration and cruising are effortless.

More details >>>

We,ve had a 2008 Mondeo 2.2 diesel [172bhp] estate for 5 years and towed 3 different "vans". Compass Corona, Elldis Avante 540 and now a Elldis Affinity 530. Great towcar with loads of pulling power. Has been VERY reliable.
6 speed manual gives 29-31 mpg whilst towing {with careful use of throttle]. Would buy another .

Towing Bailey Pageant Bordeaux with ATC. Had a little difficulty with take off to start with but that might just have been me. Had the car chipped and now it is just great. Have also towed the caravan with my son in laws 2lt Mondeo III waste and prefer mine.. Good fuel economy 30 plus mph with best eeconomy mainly using 5th gear leaving 6th for level or slight down hill. In short all good and also would not bother with 2lt.

More details >>>

I cannot fault my Mondeo 2.2 for the towing my caravan Swift Challenger 510, we have been to many countries in Europe and the average MPG is 28.4 in tow. I set my cruise control to 60mph and to make life easier for my Mondeo I never go in sixth gear , my RPM remains on a constant 1800 RPM,thus giving me plenty of power in reserve should I need to get out of a messy situation or overtake in the least possible time.

2006 2.0 tdci Ghia x estate - 130,000 miles and still towing well,? Returns 38 mpg on long towing hauls . just done 2k round Scotland and back home. Only get into 6th gear on the flat but keep to 55-60 in 5th. Amazes me though how many people admit to towing at speeds over 60mph.

Not a good towing car. Always feel's underpowered on motorways. Though better on A roads. However all this could be because over van is heavy so if you have a smaller van it will be ok.

This is the perfect towing rig, the 163 bhp power shift effortlessly drives without any problem what so ever. On my last trip up to the lakes it returned 31mpg on the return trip. Absolutely fantastic, i couldn't have wished for a more stable and responsive tow car.

More details >>>

The caravan is a dealer special and weighs about 40kgs more than this model. The car is a 2012 model Estate Zetec 163bhp. Only had two trips with this outfit, so it's early days but first impressions are really good. The last trip we covered about 140miles, mainly dual carriageways with some A roads in very,very strong winds in 3hrs (average speed around 47mph for trip) without any concerns. Never checked the mpg's. Loads of room, all in all a very good tow car. Too early to say anything about reliability but well pleased.

More details >>>

Strangely, despite being heavier than previous 'van (see review of same car with Elddis Xplore 474), this was a very good outfit match indeed. The outfit was very stable, even with crosswinds or passing HGVs. There was no lack of power either.

Unlike with the Elddis, the back end of the Mondeo was not especially weighed down. In fact, I had to add ballast (in the form of an awning) to the front of the Bailey to increase the noseweight a bit!

A very good combination indeed.


Ford Mondeo Wagon - 2.0 TDCi [6MT] and Lunar

Ian reviewed on a Ford Mondeo Wagon - 2.0 TDCi [6MT] (96 Kw/131 bhp year: september 2003 - june 2007) and a Lunar Lexon EB of (laden) 1370 kg.
More details >>>

I have used the Mondeo for 4 summers first pulling a Lunar Jupiter and this year with the Lunar EB. It has not missed a beat. It has sufficient power to pull the odd overtake, passed a VW camper up an overtaking lane in Wales, and passed a few slow cars on A roads. I drive mostly for economy (apart from the odd overtake) and get around 30-32 mpg at 52-55 mph in 5th gear, with up to 60 mpg solo. A 4x4 might pull better up hill on wet grass but I have yet to go to a site where the owner would not help us if we needed them to in order to avoid damaging the site.

More details >>>

Actually towing an Xplore 474 at this weight. Mondeo had plenty of power, very easy to slip past 60mph, and the autobox made low speed work easy too. Biggest complaint was suspension seemed too low at the back, even grounding the towbar when pulling off from a slight down slope onto an upward cambered road. With the autobox, 25-30mpg.

Such good tugs these 2.2 mondeos, mines the ghiax, towing a 2007 bailey senator indiana.I'm up the north lakes most weeks and the only time i drop a gear, is on the climb over shap.Drop into 5th, set the cruise to 60 and it doesn't waver. The vans very stable, but ths may be down to the Alko ATC system that it came with.

More details >>>

Mondeo is a superb towcar. Pulls up motorway hills with ease. Gives 28 mpg on long motorway pulls but over 31mpg towing on A class roads. Very stable. Will tow in 6th gear on flat but easier in 5th. Power and stability to accelerate past lorries on motorways and then drop back to 60mph cruise. Enormous boot capacity for carrying equipment. I bought mine 1 year old to avoid heavy first year depreciation.


Ford Mondeo Wagon - 2.0 TDCi [6MT] and Adria

Stuart reviewed on a Ford Mondeo Wagon - 2.0 TDCi [6MT] (96 Kw/131 bhp year: september 2003 - june 2007) and a Adria Adora Danube 642 UP of (laden) 1600 kg.
More details >>>

I have used my Mondeo for towing the Adria since trading in (a much lighter) caravan two years ago. In this time I have done three 3,000 mile trips to SW Spain and a similar trip to the south of France as well many other shorter journeys. The Mondeo is fine in most circumstances having a good strong engine that copes well with the caravan. As the weight ratio is poor with this match I try and carry as much weight as possible in the car. Under more demanding conditions the Mondeo struggles a bit. 6th gear is rarely used and it tends to overheat on longer hills. A replacement clutch tends to point to the fact that I'm pushing it a bit with a caravan of this size. The mondeo's replacement will be a heavier, more powerfull car

I agree with Henrik. This is not as hard in reality. My Mondeo -02 wagon 146Hp manages a 6 meter 1600 kg Caravan. Even on mountain roads in Norway. Shure a diesel is better, but the petrol is fully usable.

Kevin reviewed on a Ford Mondeo III Wagon - 2.0 TDCi (103 Kw/140 bhp year: june 2007 - may 2010) and a Swift Charisma 570 of (laden) 1452 kg.
More details >>>

The Mk4 Mondeo is a fantastic tow car. In estate form it sits beautifully planted on the road and feels very stable. You never feel you are not in control of the van.

There's plenty of power and torque too, and 30mpg towing with bikes on the roof too!!

Oh, and if you're thinking of a big 4x4 instead, bear in mind that if you want to have a roof load like family bikes, then it's a lot easier to get them on the roof of an estate car.

I know this site calculates the ratio to be high and only gives it 4.5 stars, but I think it's an excellent combination.

More details >>>

Mondeo Est 2.0 163 BHP 2010 tows the 540 Challenger with no trouble what so ever. I think this is a perfect match and will cope very well over most terrain. I would suggest fitting a detachable tow bar with the designated electrics loom. I had this fitted at Genisis Towing Centre in Telford and are very professional people to deal with. They will also set the vehicle management system up when the installation takes place.

More details >>>

Even though it's a 96% weight rating the Mondeo tows very well. I have had no issues with stability on motorways or A roads at 60mph. Handbrake needs a very firm pull on hills but still returns mid 30's mpg while towing.

More details >>>

A good solid tow on the moterway, at times you don't know its there. starting on a slope requires a bit of clutch slip as this model does hesitate at low revs with a load due to turbo lag. I get between 31 and 36 mph with this rig towing depending on road and wind conditions. I would go for a 2ltr next time I think

A pleasure, excellent performance, just set the cruise and forget. (2.0tdci) Rear suspension a little soft, either opt for sports or as I have done, fit rear spring assistors.

towing with this outfit is brilliant, motorway work is brilliant, can easily keep at 60mph. Overtaking can be good even in 6th gear, on slight inclines when taken lorries and anything large, needs to drop to 5th but again no problems. Can easily go over limit so be carefull with this!! Will need steady clutch work from start when on slopes or wet grass, but once started easily gets to max speed. Outfit is steady solid calm on road side winds when strong can be scary but with care like any outfit no issues

We have towed with the 130bHp Mondeo estate but it always felt underpowered. This 2.2. engine is a good match for the power and torque available. I haven't modified the suspension in any way i.e. doughnuts , springs etc. and the outfit handles well.

More details >>>

Last August my wife and I went out for a cup of coffee,bought a caravan magazine and,that afternoon,bought an Eldiss Xplore 452! We had last owned a caravan 16 years earlier.
In September we set off for a 3-week holiday in France.Our car was a Mondeo 1.8 petrol.We had no problem towing but the hills made driving somewhat hard-work-lots of gear-changing. I decided to make the change to a Mondeo 2.0 diesel. I thought the change would be marginal. In fact, it is hugely significant, We have just had another 3 weeks in France towing 1650 miles up hill and down dale. 30 mpg and hardly a gear change. I consulted What towcar before I bought the 2.0 TDCi and it was top class advice.I would recommend the car unreservedly.

Have taken delivery of new car and caravan within the last 3 months and am absolutely delighted with both! The combination works a treat, the Mondeo performs better at on road towing than my old Discovery.

I use this Ford Mondeo to tow my Bailey Pegasus 534. The car tows the van with ease and maintaining a 55-60mph on flat roads is easy using 5th gear. The car can struggle with inclines if you use the 6th gear. The stability is very good, but you will feel the effect in strong winds as with all cars. I feel this is a good match and have had no issues towing the Pegasus.

Just collected our new van form Lowe and Rhodes in Stoke, spent a night in thepeak district and then drove back to Stockton on Tees, averaged about 60mph approx 30mpg all the way, struggled slighty on the hills over the pennines M62, and had to let the trucks overtake me, probably down to this being my first van and not using the gears correctly, but on the flat had no trouble overtaking.

More details >>>

My caravan is an Avondale Avocet which I tow with a 2002 2.0 Ltr Mondeo petrol Auto. Apparently according to the info I have found on the net this caravan is to heavy for the car, but in the two years I have had this caravan I have found the Mondeo to be an excellent tow car. It has not put a foot wrong and pulls the caravan with ease, this may be due to us probably due to only taking what we need and never overloading the car or the caravan. I am only now considering selling the car due to requiring a bigger caravan.

More details >>>

The car will pull this load fairly comfortably once established,pulling away on a slope needs 1800rpm and clutch slip to get a smooth pull away, this is due to the turbo coming in at these revs. Have chipped the car which has given an easier pull away.
Will be looking to get a 2lt Auto Estate next time.

The whattow car review has it about right. We went to France and covered over 1400 miles towing. Not the slightest problem on the flat but much gear changing on the hills. A bit of a pain but no real problem.

We did take great care to pack light and level.

Having gone out for a coffee we ended up buying a new tourer! I didn't want to change cars as well. However, when I do change I will upgrade to a 2.0 tdci.

My van is in fact the Avante 630 which is 40kg lighter than the nearest selectable choice it tows fine, its a touch heavy but I have been towing for 20 years. It requires a bit of clutch managment from a standing start on a steep incline and forget 6th gear for most of the time. I seldom go over 50mph, never over 60mph and would not hesitate to recomend this combination to expirienced drivers prepared to drive carefully.

Excellent combination. Previously had a Freelander TD4 and although the Freelander felt slightly more firm and stable the advantages of pulling the van and everyday use with the Mondeo far outweigh it. Went down to the French Alps this summer ( 1,800 miles) and car returned 34 mpg and 55 mpg normal use. The journey time compared to Freelander was better than previous yr- might be cos I got to know some short cuts! Found it best to inflate tyres to 34 front and 36 rear whilst towing for firmer,less wallowing, ride. Never been stuck on wet/ muddy site but always loads of help available.

We have been towing this unit for about a year now. The Mondeo pulls like a train and is very stable. I have not really measured fuel economy but anything is better than out last tow car (Subaru Forester). Although the Forester was better than the Mondeo on damp grassy hills I have only had difficulty getting off a pitch once with the Mondeo when the traction control just would not let be get any power down onto the mud. I would recommend the Mondeo as a tow car but at this age just lookout for suspension bush issues.

i purchased a 2008 petrol mondeo 2 ltr 5speed manual to tow my swift charisma 555 the caravan is just below the towing limit stated by ford for this vehicle.
on the open road towing was superb but when i had to stop on a slight incline i had to give it an enormouse amount of revs and spin the wheels to get away
when i went on holiday i had to reverse the caravan up a slope onto the pitch,to manage this i had to slip the clutch to such an extent that the local ford dealer remarked on the clutch smell when i took it to them the following week
although Ford Motor Company state that this vehicle will tow 1500 kg they will not replace the clutch when it is burnt out by pulling away on inclines this is not covered by the warranty
unfortunately i am now selling mine as i have no intention of getting stranded with a burnt out clutch
I WOULD NOT RECOMEND ANY ONE TO BUY THIS CAR FOR TOWING

Brilliant at towing. Despite being a 95% weight ratio, the car performs pretty effortlessly. I've only ever read about snaking - never experienced it myself, even in high winds or when passing or being passed by very lareg vehicles on the motorway.

The maximum possible speed was not correct in teh evaluation provided by this site - I've accidentallky slipped up to 80 mph before. It is someting I now watch out for! It is genuinely easy to forget the caravan is there sometimes!

The car is 2 years older, 80k on the clock and I have covered 2k towing the sterling this summer? First class would recommend. Economy good, power plenty, top gear 5th easy 50 ~ 60mph and more if needed to get out of trouble. What I don't understand is! how many families are driving @ 70mph + sorry folks that sought of speed with any kit is a NO NO!

Struggled towing for years with a 2002 1.8i16v Vauxhall Vectra, but recently bought a 2005 2.2 Tdci Mondeo Ghia X. This car is just truly perfect for towing, there is bags of tourque and it was a dream to tow with. On motorways put it into 6th and set the cruise control and away you go, I only ever need to use 5th on steep inclines. I get around 42mpg without the caravan and around 27mpg towing with full load including 2 bikes and a kayak on the roof bars. Neither power nor fuel economy is affected by using the air conditioning whilst towing. I would recommend this car to anyone who wishes to tow a caravan, brilliant!

Mondeo ST 2.2 TDCi Estate 2007 pilling a new Bailey Pageant Series 7 Limousin.
Rock solid performance. The self levelling suspension on the Mondeo performs brilliantly.
Caravan has ALKO hitch & stabiliser. Caravan also has new ATC electronic trailer control for extra safety.
Towed around 300 miles round trip at around 55-60mph. Both trailer and car sat very comfortably despite the odd juggernaut or mad 4X4 towing idiot passing at 75mph.

I am delighted with the performance and although well above the limits some would consider, felt that the combination was really steady and stable.

Found it difficult to keep the nose weight low enough. Don't load up the fromt locker - you'll end up with 120kg on the nose at first attempt like me.

Watch the nose weight!! Store your stuff in the bathroom or under the fixed double bed. Nose weight seemed most comfortable at around 80-90kg.

One word of caution - the Limousin only allows loads of 211kg above the tare weight to give around 1572kg all up - DON'T EXCEED THIS. It pays to keep the lovely light chassis light - and it turned in 35mpg on my trip.

Had this outfit for 3 years with no problems. The auto box is excellent and handles the van well round town. Sometimes need to manually select gears on country roads to avoid constant downshifting. Very stable and plenty of power for most situations. Get 30 to 35 mpg when towing.

Only issue was when towing to Spain over the Pyrennees fully laden in 35 degree heat and on steep long mountain climbs the engine protection did cut in to stop overheating. However taking it more steady would have probably avoided this, so the turbo was not being used. There were also plenty of lorries who were also struggling to get up the hills climbing at 5 to 10 mph. So it was more to do with the extreme conditions then the car.

I also upgraded the rear springs to MAD suspension as the rear did sit very low.

Overall, I would recommend the car we a similar van as it performs excellent solo and with the van on the back. Best auto box I have ever driven.

I can't add too much to the above. Having only towed with 1.6L petrols previously this car is in a different league. The only possible issue is as previously mentioned about the clutch. It is sometimes quite easy to stall in a careless moment and can take a while for engine speed to pick up for take off. This is only seconds of course but in the panic of the moment is seems longer. 6th gear is very possible between 50-60mph (or higher abroad) but it's not unreasonable to expect to drop to 5th up an incline. The other problem is keeping within speed limits!

I have a 130bhp 03 plate Mondeo Tdci Ghia X and have just bought a Mondeo 140BHP Tdci estate Ghia on an 08 plate.
All I can say is, I thought the 130BHP Mondeo was good at towing my Abbey Vogue 540, but the new Mondeo is in a class of it's own. It is a true pleasure to drive, acceleration comes in buckets, it is so stable when towing even at the higher speeds with a cross wind. You will have difficulty keeping to speed limits as it has bags of power and just wants to pull all the time. 6th gear towing is a bit better than the 03 Mondeo but it really likes only up to 5th gear. Fuel consumption is about the same as my other Mondeo and returns 35-40 mpg when towing on Motorways and 30-35mpg on A roads. I can see why it has been voted best Towcar for 2 years straight. I think it will be up there next year as well.

I have an 03 Tdci Ghia X saloon Mondeo 130BHP and it is the first towing car I have bought that is a dream. Acceleration and driving with the Abbey Vogue 540 is effortless and pulls in all conditions. Good fuel consumption 35 mpg towing A roads, close to 40 average on motorways and without the van, you can get 60-64 mpg on motorways. It's a shame that you cannot use 6th gear much as this would give you brilliant fuel consumption. Experienced first serious hill start last weekend when stopped at Callowtop Hill Caravan park near Ashbourne, entrance is 1 in 5 hill. As soon as traction control kicked in, it was easy to move away without the smell of burning clutch and tyres. I would highly recommend this towing outfit.

Absolutley fabulouse vehicle for towing,couldn't wish for more fuel ecconomey and excellent pulling power up steep inclines on motorway/country/by-roads. 10/10 all round. Would reccomend to anyone + low maintenence with the advantage of a timming chain( instead of the ever so unfortunateley hapenning timming belt snap on other vehicles). just recentley i have done cornwall= 400 miles there at a reasonable 40mpg(on diesel) at approx 60mph Excellent MOTOR,i'am well pleased with here..

car has sufficient pulling power, i find that most of the guts of the car are in 3rd gear, does struggle slightly on hills due to lack of nose weight on car, 5th gear is not useable under 55 mph, but at 60mph on dual carriageways the car runs great in 5ty gear and averages about 30 mpg, i found that i needed a drop plate on the car to lower the caravan to stop BOBBING as the caravan was rear heavy due to end kitchen, apparently very common problem on the mk 2 mondeo as the towbar goes through the bumper and not under it(mk1 and mk3 i've seen). hope this helps with any other mondeo mk2 owners, believe me! Buy a drop plate and lower your towbar,get 65kg nose weight on the van and feel the difference!!!.

I tow a 1990 Buccaneer Elan 14 with my 03 2.0 TDCI Ghia X hatch. Tows very well with plenty of power throughout the first 5 gears, if not to much! easy to forget you have a caravan behind you at times. 6th gear is only achievable driving illegally over 60mph, at 60mph th engine labours in 6th. Set the cruise control at 55-60 in 5 gear and the miles disappear effortlessly. Economy excellent. Managed 35 mpg towing from Burnley to the Lakes. Only critism is the Mondeo diesels notoriously jumpy clutch from setting off, very easy to stall with or without a caravan.

I once owned a 1998 S reg estate 2.0ltr and on solo work it could not fault it. But when i had the caravan attached a Avondale Dart 510/5, the outfit was very unstable. There was alot of bounce and sway from the rear, so much i had to stop quite a few times to re-arrange the payload just so i could try and get a safe outfit. Acceleration with the caravan was not to brilliant and did struggle up hill alot. On the flat it was fairly ok but again took it's time to reach 60mph. Overtaking vehicles as small as a van caused a few problems, and when a lorry or coach passed there was alot of gear work to try and regain the speed. The outfit was @ the 83/85 mark well within british guidlines, but needed work

Cracking engine power but can struggle on steep hill pull aways until you get going then its fantastic. we have an Abbey Impression 520 which is not listed on here with the alco stabilizer. I've found to get the best balance is to put anything heavy over the caravan axle rather than the car boot, this stopped the car bounch dramatically due to hard suspension. As for fuel economy solo average about 42mpg towing about 27mpg.

I tow a Swift Challenger 480SE with a 2-litre Mondeo TDCi 130. The Mondeo is a brilliant towcar. It pulls the van with ease, uphill and down dale (the 6-speed box helps). It will hold 6th on motorways, even with a moderate gradient, and return around 30mpg at legal speeds (without the van, 40 round town and 50+ on a run). In comparison with my previous tug, a Discovery Td5 auto, it is brilliant and I don't regret selling thr 4x4 at all - it was sluggish and spent most of its time in 3rd gear, and returned around 20mpg with the van behind. At nearly a tonne heavier, it was slightly more stable in crosswinds, but not enough to tempt me back. Mondeo highly recommended. With or without the caravan on the hook, it is an excellent drive - torquey and quick.

Brilliant engine. very flexible. Solo it holds road well and pulls from as low as 1500 revs. rarely need to exceed 2500 revs, which ain 6th. is over 60mph. tows effortlessly Seems stable probably due to the firm suspension, and on motorway hills very rarely needs below 5th gear. Too early to arrive at fuel consumption towing but solo is around 40 mpg around home and 50 on long motorway trips.

Ford Mondeo - 2.0 16v aut. and Swift

More details >>>

My caravan is a Swift Charisma 550 and my Mondeo 2.0 Ghia Auto does struggle. ( so much so I am looking to change it ). It is ok on the flat but on long hills it finds it hard to cope and I have noticed a burning smell from the transmission unit. It does not pick up enough to enable you to overtake with confidence on a motorway.

More details >>>

This car has fantastic pulling power, but I think at around 57-58mph 5th gear is no good as the engine is idling, I always stay in 4th and achieve 32-35 mpg constantly whilst towing and around 50 mpg when solo.
Caravan sits really well on the roads and is easy to manouvre for such a hefty van.

This car and caravan match is ideal. I have been to Belgium France and Holland covering many miles of motorway, and the car has performed its duty with ease. There is no worry about the power when pulling out of junctions. The car sticks to the road when cornering. I could go on and on but I won't, All I will say is the 130bhp mondeo is a joy to tow with.

Hi we tow a coachman genius 1994 , mtplm 1200kgs and have found very good towing performance's between the ford mondeo 2001 model TDDI 115bhp , hill climbing is very good and stable , in reasonable high winds (with the aid of a stabiliser ) is also very good balenced outfit , top speeds on motorways of 60mph are very easily reached and stable at those speeds , i would rate this mondeo a good match , especially at these weights.
