Hi, Just came across the site and first impressions are good.
I have an 04 2.0 TDCI, Ghia, Silver, a replacement after I was rear-ended in the summer in my Scenic.

First impressions of the C Max a lot more power and driving enjoyment.

A couple of problems/ queries you might be able to assist with.

1. I have front and rear parking sensors which I believe have been on since new and they disable themselves periodically and won't re set when button on dash is pushed. This can clear the next time I start or it may be the next day.

2. Has anyone had the engine re mapped and would they advise this as I am waiting to get a towbar fitted for towing my caravan and any extra torqu would help.

Thanks and keep up the good work.

Welcome newbie!!!!
I would try towing with your 2.0 before you get it mapped, I towed 1250kg with the 1.8TdCi and found it was pretty good, very stable and about 30mpg with the van on the back.
