Hi everyone,
This is my first post on here.
I pick up my 2004 C-Max on Wednesday.

After reading all the bad reviews on the internet, I'm wondering now if I have bought a lemon!

If any of you have sold a 2004 GreenySilver 2.0TDCI zetec to a garage in Bradford and you know its a lemon please let me know before I part with my hard earned cash.

I did loads of searching to see what was the best diesel mpg with a decent acceleration and not a sports coupe and the C-Max came out tops - Please tell me its a decent motor and returns 50mpg!

Cheers
Micky

Hi Micky

Regarding MPG, if you do a lot of motorway driving and drive it at around 60 - 65 then 50 - 60 mpg is available.
Town driving or shortish journeys then will then get you anywhere between 25 - 42 mpg.
Just depends on what your like with your right foot and the journey.

Cheers Lawe,

My first journey was 37miles, mostly 30mph and queueing but I averaged 47 mpg, so I'm happy with that

Cheers Gepard, I'll do my best.
I'm a mod on a biker website so I know how irritating some things are.
