Hi all, I will be picking up a 2008 1.6 Petrol Zetec on Saturday. This is my 1st C MAX and also my 1st Ford. Does anyone have any good tips to help me get the best from the car.
The reason we have chosen a C Max, is because of its good write up and it lets us carry our dog around in confort.

Hi welcome to the forum, I personally don't have any tips to get the best from a car as usually trade it in after 3 years hope someone will provide some for you, we choose the C-max for the comfort and space it provides.

welcomeThe best way to look after any car is to service regularly, never run too low on fuel(as it will suck up scum from the bottom of the tank), use engine and fuel system cleaners and give a good blast up the motorway every now and again to help exhaust emissions and general engine performance.

Thanks for the advise. I picked up the car and must say am impressed by the way it handles. This might sound daft, but it drives much more like a car than I expected.

agreed. for quite a boxy car it does drive well. ive just lowered mine by 30mm, and what an amazing difference it makes. a well worth it mod
