Just joined today
I have an 04 1600 tdci C Max, just come upto 58000 miles. Bought it 2 1/2 years ago with 11000 miles ex Ford Direct.
In that time other than basic service items it has had just one set of four tyres. 1 set front pads, 1 set windscreen wipers (expensive or what). two headlight bulbs and a fuel filler cap.
Economy is good, road tax cheapish, adequate power even in its 1600 form.
I cannot complain at all about this car and with aches and pains in the lower regions the driving position is just right.
