I've had my 1.8 diesel C-max for a year now and I'm very pleased with my choice. I was seduced by the looks of the car and all the extras e.g. panoramic roof, satnav, sport pack, etc. My only criticism is the lack of power when pulling away in second or third gear having negotiated a mini-roundabout or sharp bend, but I'm getting used to it.
I've already had some useful help on the technical forum, so I hope I can contribute in the future.
