Hi, everyone.
nice to find an owners club specific to the c-max. Just bought an 07 56 plate 1.6 TDCi Ghia with 73000 on the clock,love the car (only had it a day mind)just wondering about cambelt change,iv'e heard it's 125000 or ten years,is this correct? and are there any issues with the EPB & if so is it an expensive job?
Any replies greatly apprieciated!

Hi & welcome to the club.
Do you know any of the cars history? By thay I mean do you know if it was used mainly for short trips or a combination of short & M/way?
If it has done maily short runs then I`d be inclined to get the cambelt changed.If it was mainly M/ways then it should be ok till specified.
Mine did a lot of M/way before I got it & now it only does short runs with the odd 500mile trip so as it has now done 83,000 I`m getting the cambelt done at the next service (Jan).
As for the epb,I don`t have one so it`s probably best someone else answers that question although I know the are one or two issues.

Hi & thanks for the swift reply! the car is an ex lease car with one owner and full ford service history,I would assume it's done a lot of m/way mileage due to miles covered versus age of car so will probably leave cam belt for a while yet.
Cheers!
