Buying a 2008 Mondeo petrol - problems?

I am thinking of buying a Ford Mondeo estate 2.0 petrol.

Would you recommend this model, does it have a DMF and are there known reliability issues with the DMF? I am also thinking of getting a Ford Focus zetec estate 1.6 L if there are issues with Mondeo.

Frankly yes, because it is shunned in favour of diesels, so is usually cheap and the engine is chain cam. I think it does have a DMF, but I have never heard of any trouble with this.
