thanks for the reply to be honest im more or less sold on having one[img]smileys/smiley2.gif[/img]i was looking at the vw touran but they are plagued with faults and the money that im spending on a cmax i can get so much more for my money eg..cost less,newer vehicle and lower mileage.i have a tdi jetta at the moment which when it running its good but when it comes to the dealer and service costs they are taking the you no what[img]smileys/smiley7.gif[/img]is there much difference with the old block and the alloy block? reliabilty wise?ive been looking at the face lifted versions some have the old style dash and others have the newer version?
