i had an loan of the company 2.0i mondeo tonight and my cousin was through with his new buy a 9000 cd 2.3i. we went out in convoy my cousin was driving my 9000 xs because of need to pick up a freezer his son was driving the 2.3 and i was bringing up the rear in the mondeo on the road out i indicated to pass the 2 of them when the 2.3 took of with my xs in persuit, now came the surprise the mondeo in 3rd gear was cack, gutless and coarse also my xs was keeping on the tail of the 2.3 (funny watching my own car getting a canning without me at the wheel) now sure you turbo boys look down your noses at the n/a cars but what actual hp has the 2.0i got some sites say 130bhp some 135 some 140 and i thought the 2.3 would have left it or is there a gearing weight diff between the cc and cd to account for the 20 bhp that is supposed to be between them as for the mondeo i was disapointed with it bar the road holding which was good and firm but the rattles from a 40,000 mile car were poor.
