Buying a used Mondeo - Which model is best?

I have decided to buy a used Ford Mondeo. I have up to a £10,000 to spend. I do quite a lot of motorway mileage.I'd like a Titanium model, diesel engine, auto box. Which model/engine is best to go for?

The six-speed wet clutch Powershift has been reasonably okay, but requires a fluid and filter change every 3 years that costs £200 - £250 and is often neglected. This causes the problems with Powershifts that people complain about. The lower powered 2.0TDCIs are the most reliable and are only nominally short of power anyway.
