UPDATE: Evans Halshaw in Glossop (do not use then have the car shipped to another branch) they are absolutely useless. Upon inspection at the Dewsbury branch it became clear that the 30 point check had not been carried out properly. The brake disc were/are worn to 10% & the front tyres are illegal, the dewsbury branch having discussed these matters with Glossop were given authorisation to replace the brake discs, they refused to replace the tyres which after an unnecessary threat to the Glossop branch of county court action they later phoned Dewsbury to authorise the new tyres, the tyres were fitted immediately and the brakes not in stock will be replaced this saturday. The noise has stopped although the vibrating is noticable at 80-90mph but is bearable, although having 160mph on the speedometre I wouldnt expect any vibration at that speed what so ever, maybe someone else can advise as to the normality of this issue?!
Ok, so the noise has stopped having replaced the rear tyre, now we just have the issue of the two front tyres being in a similar condition to the replaced rear (not visible without good inspection) causing vibration, I will be going back to Evans Halshaw on friday to have the tracking done (free!) and demanding also free of charge 2x Michelin Pilot Sport 3 for the front end, I have used this guide to decide http://www.tyrereviews.co.uk/Tyres_For/Ford/Mondeo-Titanium-X.htm and have found them for £121.90 each at http://www.mytyres.co.uk/cgi-bin/rshop.pl?dsco=110&Cookie=froogle&details=Ordern&typ=D-113166&ranzahl=4&nichtweiter=1&pk_campaign=froogle&wt_ref=http%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Egoogle%2Eco%2Euk%2Faclk%3Fsa%3Dl%26ai%3DC%2DOwWrtZzU%5FjBKIS%5F7QbkrIHoA8ifiesE4MeUw5IB8fvSicwBCAQQASD4mYsSKAdQ6O2UgwZgu46tg9AKoAHMg%5FfuA8gBB6kCZNONGWgDtz6qBCNP0GeFXYu6iZeL1txUIOOHKC%5Fy%2D1cTWc9Tq4MQL3XLjkCKRoAFl%2DC8C8AFBaAGJtgGAoAH6KawL5AHAuASqMzX6umamp9y%26sig%3DAOD64%5F3kAflLt3QGq8nSWUEXZEGWOLjR9A%26ctype%3D5%26rct%3Dj%26q%3D%26ved%3D0CC0Qwg8%26adurl%3Dhttp%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Eadtraxx%2Ede%2Fwo%2FWebObjects%2Edll%2FVisitTracker%2Ewoa%2Fwa%2Ftrack%253Fid%253D16041289%2526target%253Dhttp%3A%2F%2Fmytyres%2Eco%2Euk%2Fcgi%2Dbin%2Fp%2Epl%25253FID%25253Dfroogle%252526Country%25253DUK%252526typ%25253DD%2D113166&ID=froogle&wt_t=1400100544000
"UPDATE" The inner rear passenger side tyre is like one big giant aero bubble, certainly explains both the humming noise and the vibration which is more noticeable and annoying/worrying at motorway speeds... It will be most certainly changed tomorrow from which I will update further in a couple of days once I know where I stand.
I am having this same issue, did not think much of it as the humming was none existant with the radio on, however, a short trip on the M62 took it to a whole new level. Really loud humming followed closely by vibration throughout the car, vibration mostly between 50-70 resulting in a slow first lane drive home for the worry that flooded my mind. I am going to swap the wheels left to right and see if the problems follows the change, if not, I hope you guys may be able to share your knowledge in the hope of saving a small fortune in Garage Troubleshooting and failed attempts at any resolution. Not what I expected from my 2009 Titanium X of only 2 days after purchase, but these things happen and its a great car, I hope it is just the wheel issue as many have suggested :(
