Ford Mondeo is the UK’s most used car

The average Ford Mondeo covers more distance on UK roads than any other vehicle

The average Ford Mondeo covers more distance on UK roads than any other vehicle, racking up over 15,000 miles annually, nearly 600 more than the next most-used car, the Volvo S80.

Warranty Direct managing director, Duncan McClure Fisher, said “the Mondeo’s always been a favourite with company car drivers, and it appears they rarely stay idle for long. Despite this, they are reliable too. It goes to show that when buying used, the rule-of-thumb average mileage of 12,000 isn’t really applicable, for example a four-year old Micra’s average mileage will be little over 20k miles whereas a Mondeo’s will be more like 60k miles. The average 10 year old Mondeo will have travelled equivalent to nearly six times around the globe.”

The statistics show that even covering over 15,000 miles annually, the Mondeo’s reliability isn’t diminished, only 15% require a warranty claim each year as opposed to the Passat which has a 44% chance of acquiring a fault.

The award-winning Ford Mondeo 1.6 TDCi is the best green family car, being both a brilliant all-rounder and remarkably eco-friendly with its low CO2 rating of 114g/km. The low emissions mean zero road tax in the first year and £30 annually from then.
