My wife has the same model. One thing I don't like is the 5km/h increments for the cruise control. I'm also surprised the digital speedo isn't standard.

Oh right, fair enough. Can you send me a message with the details of the person/page on FB if you don't mind please? I'll also have a search again..

Agree with your cruise control comment, although the digital speedo now makes it easier to lock in the exact speed you want.

Used Forscan + an adaptor to enable the digital speedo on the Trend hatch. Pretty simple. There are other features you can play around with and enable.

Now, if only there is a feature called 'build quality' which you can toggle to 'average' or 'high' instead of 'low'....

Yes, I had to get used to the 5km/h increments when I first drove the car. Even without a digital speedo, you could set it to a speed in between those increments - you just had to set it to the nearest 5km/h (lower or higher), then manually get it to the speed you want (accelerate higher or cruise lower), then press set again. I got really good at reading the analogue speedo, but now with the digital speedo enable it's much easier..

On a (hopefully) final note for this thread, I had the Mondeo in for first year service recently. Got the dealer to look at a bunch of rattles that developed (speaker in front door, dashboard, rear seat belt assembly). They fixed them the best they could, though not 100%. Very common apparently, and dealers would be lucky to get $60 for the hours of work they put into it..
