  4. Mondeo 3.0 V6

    Hi, I have a 2006 mondeo 3.0 V6 titanium x, the 4th mondeo I have owned and was hopefully going to be one to keep for many years to come. Had it 2 and half years, always kept up with maintaining it and always passed mot with flying colours. However a couple of weeks ago it packed in. After spending £300 trying to find the problem it seems to be that the chain has slipped and will need a bit of work to sort it out. I am not going to spend the money on fixing it as I have the opportunity to buy another car. I would hate to scrap the car as I have a soft spot for these motors and would like to see it go to good use for parts or even someone willing to put the time into fixing it. I've had a full stainless steel exhaust fitted at a cost of £800 which makes it sound great. It has 80k miles on it, all the extra gizmos you need inside. Alloys have curb marks but have 4 brand new tyres on. Not putting on autotrader or anything to sell, want it to go someone who likes these motors and could get some good use out of it. If anyone is interested let me know. John
