What maintenance costs can I expect on my 2013 diesel Ford Mondeo?
You say the underlying maintenance cost is the reason for the collapsing of diesel car prices. I'm concerned because I own a 63 reg Ford Mondeo Estate 2.0d, with 40,000 miles that I plan to keep for another three or four years. What additional costs can I expect?
EGR £500 - £1000; DPF £1,000+ (though they can usually be chemically cleaned for about £400). A 63 reg will need a new timing belt, tensioner, waterpump and alternator belt in a year or so, costing £500. If the turbo fails, that will be about £1500 + new turbo bearing oil feed and oil return pipes.
