Ford Mondeo – A Winner in St Helens

The all-new Ford Mondeo taxi continues to be a popular choice for today’s tech-savvy driver.  With innovative technologies and boasting an impressively modern exterior, Mondeo is a visionary treat.

We caught up with Cab Direct customer and experienced taxi driver, Carl Litherland, to gain a ‘behind the wheel insight’ on his Ford Mondeo estate.

Carl has been driving around the scenic town of St.Helens for busy taxi office, AtoB taxis, for a dedicated 12 years.  He said:  “I’d been looking around at other taxis for some time.  Around two years ago I decided to bite the bullet and invest in a brand new Ford Mondeo.”

Trust the Taxi Experts

Carl said: “Cab Direct was recommended by other drivers at my work.  I was told the taxi sales experts would be able to source the exact model, engine size and fuel type I required.

With an affordable deposit and hire purchase finance, I’d be road ready within a couple of weeks!”

Practicality & Convenience

Carl sought after the Ford Mondeo estate to accommodate a busy work schedule and boost his earning power.

Boasting a 525 litre boot and room for up to four passengers, the well-equipped estate provides more than enough room for luggage-laden journeys.

Carl said:  “The overall size is perfect.  Working a 40 hour week you need space and comfort and the Mondeo has it all in abundance.”

“With the range of work coming in each day, the estate covers me from standard school runs to packing the boot with suitcases for trips to the airport.”

Booming with Features

Opting for the Zetec model, in an eye-catching ruby exterior, Carl commented on the excitable features that the entry-level model has to offer.

He said:  “This particular model is packed full of gadgets, more than I’ve ever had before. It comes with hill start assist which helps massively with a car full of people and makes steep inclines simple.

“The centre unit console also comes complete with high spec sat nav, heating controls, Bluetooth and telephone connectivity, the list is huge!”


Carl couldn’t be happier with his taxi and either can his customers.  He said: “I don’t think a day’s gone by where customers and other drivers haven’t complimented my taxi.”

From the initial enquiry through to delivery of his new taxi, Carl speaks confidently of the service he’s received at Cab Direct.

He said:  “I recommend Cab Direct to other drivers in the trade. The team was very friendly throughout the entire process of purchasing my Mondeo.

“I receive aftercare phone calls to see how I’m getting on which is a bonus service.  I’m enjoying my taxi and with 82,000 miles on the clock in just over 2 years, I’m a very happy customer.”
