Hi Guys, I have been looking for a larger car with higher driver visibility and more space. I had Fords years ago and got really fed up with problems starting, water leaks and rust. My husband and Irecently tried all the MPVs we liked and both decided the CMAX suited us. We are in the process of buying an 05 2.0ltr TDi Ghia with 38000 miles and 1 owner from new with 12months mechanical and electrical warranty.
We love the way this vehicle drives and all the gadgets and the comfortable seats. However I trawled the internet and came across some alarming ownerreviews, most of which are about the 2.0ltr Ghia! We will be tradingin our Audi A3 1.9TDI because it is too small for us.
There are just so many reports of the electronic park brake failing, engines cutting out in busy traffic, brakes failing, dashboard electronics failing, excessive front tyre wear at only a few thousand miles and I could go on.
I really like a lot of things about this vehicle. It felt solidly built, road and engine noisesw we minimal and it pulled really well. I am now about to be broke but I am seriously worried ifwe have done the right thing!Can anyone advise us please.
