Never planned to buy a C-max I visited the dealer looking for a Focus and actually put a deposit on the Focus. But the C-max, black with smart alloys,kept coming back to mind so went back the next day and did the deal.
Have owned a C4 in the past with the same engine (90 BHP version) and was not dissappointed with the fuel econ but with the C-max being a bigger motor and being driven differently I don't expect anywhere near the 65MPG I got on the C4 - Calculated btw never trust the readout.
I'm after sorting out some teething problems on the C-max and look forward to sharing ideas with the aficionadosof the group.
Thanks for the welcome guys, the problems are small really known as part of the deal.
1. I have only 1 key and have baulked at the dealer prices.
2. A plastic moulding that covers the seat belt exit for the rear LHS passenger is not staying put, its been removed in the past and stripped the locking system.
3. The steering wheel has a crack in the cover where a previous owner has pressed excessively on the horn.
4. The A/C keeps coming on at ignition or soon after. Why?
