Hello to everyone,
Having bought myself a new (to me - 54 plate) C-Max 2.0 Tdci, I feel it's the best thing to do to join a forum such as this, to be guided by the more knowledgeable, and there are bound to be many.....in the why's and wherefores of owning a lovely little car like this.

Hope to speak to some of you again.

Cheers. Paul

Hi Pengo,welcome to the club.
What mileage has yours got & did you get a full history with it?

Hi Mike,

Funnily enough I've just been checking this very question as I have a problem with it. Mine has got 37,500 miles, but after checking the service book, it was last serviced in December 2007......although the dealer told me it was full history and they'd serviced it before I bought it; it will be going back in tomorrow

Cheers. Paul

Hi Paul
See if you can find out if the altenator has been replaced,if not there`s a good chance yours might go.
I got my Max with 60,000 on it and within 3 months the alt needed changing.It`s a common fault on these cars unfortunately.
If they had serviced it,why didn`t they stamp the book?
Check the oil on the dipstick ,if it`s a light colour then it`s been changed,if it`s black then it hasn`t.
Also ask them if they changed the pollen filter.It needs changing every servive.
