Hi there. I've just come across the Forum when I was wondering about the poor Medium Wave reception on my 2006 2Ltr Ghia model.
I bought the C-Max in August 09 from an Arnold Clark garage. It had a fair milage and was a good price (poor trade in), but was happy with the package.
I find the carreally comfortable and roomy. My wife has mobility problems, but finds it easy to get in and out of the vehicle. I've just found out that the rear seats can be re-configured to be much more roomy if there was only two passengers, good for a long run.
Surprisingly, I'm a little disappointed with the size, or shape of the boot, I have some difficulty getting my golf clubs and trolley in without some "jiggery pockery", but they eventually do go in, so maybe I'm just being hypecritical.
Is it just mine, or does the boot cover a poor fit? I feel it should be better. The cover appears to want to collapse into the boot, and it wouldn't take a weight of any description placed on it.
Anyway... The Medium wave reception (or lack of). It seemed to work O.K.until recently. It has deteriorated until it is unlistenable, (if that is a word). The F.M is starting to deteriorate too. Is there somethingI can do to improve the problem or is it a job for a Mechanic orVehicle electrician?
Otherwise I enjoy driving the car, it's really a pleasure to drive. It's an Automatic model, the first Automatic I've owned, it's great for town or country driving, so relaxing, I wish I had Automatics earlier. It isheavy on petrol compared to my previous car, a Yaris, but anything would be heavier on petrol than that. I particularly enjoy using the Cruise Control, another luxury device I'm not used to. With the winter we've just had I was also impressed with theWindscreen Heater facility, by the time I'd cleared the other windows all I had to do was wipe thewindscreen, really neat, especially considering the size of it.
Well, that was a long, quick hello, I'm not usually this verbose, but it's amazing how carried away you sometimes get when talking about something you enjoy.
