2010 Ford Mondeo Zetec 2.0 diesel from UK and Ireland
Very good Ford
Nothing, but have uneven tire wear at the back. Sounds like a wheel bearing is on its way out, but it's the tires I hope; will be replacing them soon.
Bought this Mondeo as I needed more space, which I now have plenty of.
Great to drive; I do roughly 500 miles a week, so I also need a reliable car, which so far it is, and it just eats up the miles without any issues, and I get out as fresh as I got in.
So far I cannot fault this car; will soon get the cam-belt and water pump changed, so I can hopefully drive many more trouble free miles.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I've had many Mondeos since the 1990s; they are good cars :) Only issues are injectors may clog up and give expensive issues at higher mileage (100,000 plus), but you could say that about all modern diesels.
Only other issue as per modern diesel is the DPF, but since you do 500 miles a week, it should be cleared out and healthy and last a long time.

So far everything is good. Put new tires all round and silence, no more noise. Not sure what made the tires wear uneven, but I guess the next MOT might find something? Still very happy and drives well. It's the sort of car where you get in, turn the key and go. See how long it lasts??

I'd check the tracking on the wheels if the tyres are wearing uneven. But you likely had that done when you got new tyres, and the MOT will likely pick up on any other suspension faults if that's what's causing it. I wouldn't worry about it for now; just keep an eye on the tyres for any abnormal wear.

Update on this car. Now done 90000 trouble free miles, the car just keeps going. Just done the normal services, put new discs and pads on the front last week, which is very, very good, lasting 90000 miles. Also did cambelt and water pump as a peace of mind.
The car drives like new and I hope to keep it going for a long time. I drive mainly motorway and the car cruises at motorway speed, getting around 50 MPG easy. So far I am still very happy with this Ford.

Thanks for the update, glad you still like the car, I myself like the Mondeo, have owned many since the 1990s. My only complaint about the more modern ones from about 2008 onwards is the expensive repairs to diesel engine version - DPF, injectors, turbo, dual mass flywheel, etc. Watch out if buying a used high mileage car as these can be expensive repairs. You could say the same for a lot of modern cars, especially diesels, and not just the Mondeo.
