I've had my C max for about a month now and just have a couple of niggles.

The handbook

The power sockets are permanently live.I have a roadhawk video camera from my old car which works off the lighter socket so will not switch off when I remove the key.I have stopped using it till i can work out how to fit it to a switched live.

No spare wheel. Ford wanted silly money just for a wheel brace!!. A visit to halfords for the jack and wheelbrace and i have bought a 16" steelwheel and tyre which just fits into the well but stands about 2" proud. Cured this by a visit to B&Q and buying some polystyrene insulation blocks which i cut to fit round the wheel and now have a flat boot.

I have had some reversing sensors fitted, 99+vat including fitting from Costco. The fitter came to my house and was done and dusted within the hour. Very Impressed.

Overall though I am pleased with myC Max

Can not dim the dash lights , clock keeps gaining time , rear seats are fiddly to remove and replace , carpet is difficult to vac all the grime out of it and seats stain when people get in with wet coats

Not sure what you mean about the handbook, I have only seen the PDF version so far.
I guess with the seats I will have to do what I usually do and that is Scotchguard the lot! Did that with every new car I've had and never had a problem keeping the seats clean since
