I suspect that answer is wrong as Ford had a lot of problems with DMF in their petrol Mondeos.

more so the DMF is the cheap way to do it ,

counter rotating balencer shafts are the way forward. Beemer 3 cylinder engines soooo smooth !

Just looked at the date, and it might be old news, are any Mondeos fitted with 3 cylinder petrol engines?

yes the generation 4 has a 1.0 ecoboost.

that engine has 150nm of torque - 25 less than a 1.8 (i guess the most common petrol) mondeo has

DMF damage rarely down to the design or the vehicle it ususally the nut that holds the wheel. that causes DMF issues. Ford usually put in a torque limiter to the map in lower gears to stop it getting beat up on standing start acceleration - wheel spins which then take grip are bad news for DMF (and with the current penchant for manufacturers to fit eco tires which couldnt grip on glue means wheel spin is common on standing starts at junctions on wet days in even the most benign cars) 

the other thing that kills then is folk trying to drive super economically and being in too high a gear they - which im afraid based on my test drive will be a step change for alot of people - my old diesel would do 35 in 4th .... you will be in third below 40 in these things - hell even our new 1.6 hdi needs to be in 3rd below 40..... i do think they have had a big gear box edit for one reason or another- the stretch between gears seems longer now , not sure if its a characteristic of the engine that necessitates this or for economy reasons.

and the final reason that kills DMF is people ignoring worn out clutches and not replacing them when the early signs have come......of which there are always signs.

or just do Staycations in our lovely scottish countryside and make sure i build my  next camper conversion on a newer van now i know what im doing Big Grin

You will be ok in France for a few yrs yet. The only place you will not be able to drive an old diesel is in city centre ZCR zones & there are not many of them yet. The zone you refer to is the much larger ZPA zone. Restrictions on these will only come into force in times of extra high pollution levels which will be almost never. It sounds unworkable anyway because you cannot police the system in the large areas covered by the ZPA.

If you search “app info crit-air” you will find apps that will tell you if a restriction is in force.

If you want a crit-air sticker then ensure you buy it off the official French government website cost €4.80 & not a rip off reseller site that can charge up to €20. App here. Don’t order sticker off this site though. Use official site here.

Funnily enough reading Top drive's post above, jogged my memory to get a new crit-air sticker as I had a windscreen change a few months ago.  A quick google search brought back the bogus site Opensource mentioned at at the top of the list.  It's only because I'd bought one previously that I new it was only a few Euros, and made me look again.
