Ford Mondeo 2011: Any known problems with PowerShift transmission?
What is the life expectancy of a 2011 Ford Mondeo?
To have a transmission fail after just 100,000 km is not acceptable, particularly when it hasn't been used for towing. I assume it's a dual-clutch automatic, which has been troublesome in many Fords around that time. Ford should be showing some interest in fixing it for you; at the very least they should be offering you part compensation for a replacement transmission. If you can't get any help from Ford's customer service people, go to the Victorian government's consumer affairs department, or think about going to VCAT.

Costly repairs for a Ford particulate filter
Blocked particulate filters are usually the result of doing only short trips at low speeds when there’s no opportunity for the filter to go through the regeneration process. In those cases the dealer can usually do the regeneration. Alternatively check the Internet to see what a filter would cost to import from overseas.
When does new Mondeo arrive?
It will be here early next year, most likely in February. Ford says you will be able to drive one at your dealership in March, for sure.
2011 Ford Mondeo LX engine malfunction light
I think you have every right to complain given that Ford couldn't supply you with a replacement part for three days. You were effectively forced to use a non-genuine part, although it seems that the only non-genuine thing about the replacement pump was the packaging. I think the very least Ford could do it to reimburse you for the part if not the labour involved. Remember that although Ford's warranty might not cover the situation you found yourself in they have to honour the statutory warranty that is part of our consumer laws and I reckon you would have a claim against them under that law.

Diesel fumes when sunroof open
It's unlikely that exhaust fumes are being sucked back that far up the car, so it's more likely to be fumes blowing back from the engine and probably coming in through the air vents in the dash. Next time you drive with the sunroof open close the vents and see if that stops the flow of the fumes. The dealer is the only person who can fix it for you, so persist with him, and perhaps ask for a meeting with the service manager so you can explain your frustration to him and urge him to solve the problem.
