It is with much sadness that I am selling my Mondeo ST220. This is my daily car which I have owned for a little over one and a half years, however having just taken a new job, I will now be doing over 15,000 business miles a year, and I can't bring myself to put such miles on such a beautiful example of this great car. It must be among the best examples out there, and I think it deserves to be kept in this condition rather than having big miles put on it in all weather conditions.

It is a late 2006 model with just over 45,000 miles at the time of writing this advert. It drives perfectly, I really can't emphasise enough how good this car is to drive, it feels like a new car thanks to the low miles and the proactive maintenance that has been performed throughout its life, which I will detail below. It has two modifications; a stainless steel exhaust system that was fitted by Longlife exhausts and a Quaife ATB limited slip diff which was a £1750 upgrade. Both of these enhance the character of what is already a great car.

Mechanically the car benefits from a full service history. In addition to this, several items have been procatively replaced. These include, new rear subframe and rear suspension arms, new brake lines and fuel lines front to back (this was all done by the owner prior to me) and new front dampers, new top mounts and new front drop links which I had replaced as there was a very small knock coming from the front suspension when I first bought the car. All genuine Ford parts. There is probably more as well, I have a folder full of receipts, but these are the important bits because they are the things which are commonly seen as MOT failures on Mondeos of this age. As can be seen from the MOT history, this car has never failed an MOT and only ever had 1 advisory which was for a worn brake disc in 2014. The service history, which is all stamped in the service book, is as follows:

June 2007 - 5325 miles
June 2008 - 7079 miles
July 2009 - 8831 miles
August 2010 - 10174 miles
August 2011 - 11545 miles
October 2012 - 12681 miles
November 2013 - 13896 miles
October 2014 - 15075 miles
September 2015 - 16234 miles
Septemper 2016 - 20764 miles
August 2017 - 24622 miles
August 2018 - 27146 miles
August 2019 - 30542 miles
August 2020 - 34554 miles
August 2021 - 40423 miles

I have just had the wheels refurbished by The Wheel Specialist and there are brand new Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tyres all round. These were fitted 2 weeks ago and I had this done with the intention of keeping the car but have since decided I just cannot use it for work. The wheels before were not even that bad, there was slight surface corrosion starting to appear but the rest of the car is so good I could not have the wheels letting it down!

The interior is also very, very clean. There is a small amount of wear on the driver's seat bolster, but I'm being a little bit pedantic mentioning this; it is not at all bad. The driver's floor mat is also a bit worn but the important thing is that the carpet underneath is spotless and the mat is of course replaceable. It has the DAB radio upgrade and 1/2 alcantara electric Recaro seats.

I had an ST TDCi before this, and I looked at several of those before buying one, and several ST220s before buying this one, and this car is the best by miles, it really is unusual to find an example as good as this. any questions please ask.

I'll try and add more pictures later - the website would not let me add them in current form as it will only let me add photos that collectively come to less than 20 MB so I will have to try and edit them to re-size. Or if anyone is interested I can email the existing photos.
