I thought i would sign up to this forum as it my come in useful to me in the foreseeable future. You see my wife and i have just purchased a 04 plate C-Max 1.6 TDCI Ghia with bells and whistles.
My wife is pregnant with our first child and we felt buying a new car now would set up up for the next few years, our Focus was a good car, 53 plate, 1.6 petrol on 60k miles but a fuelling problem was surfacing and it was going to need a little 'love' in the not too distant future.
So anyway traded that in for the Cmax. The Cmax has the usual stuff spec wise but this one we think was a dealer's demo car as it has the 'Rear Entertainment System' (DVD player to you and I) built in and in the front it has this huge lcd touch screen with sat nav, dual and mono heating and air con system and everything else you could ever imagine possible. Im not one for big bad ass gadgets but as this has them i guess im eligiable for a bit of brag form time to time. The only let down is that its a semi and by that i mean the transmission. So it looks like i have to settle with life without a clutch, but its not biggie i guess.
From there our story continues. I wont go into it here but look out for my 'other' posts as to our wonderful Cmax experience.
