I picked up my 2007 pre face lift Cmax 2.0 Zetec auto about 3 weeks ago. So far I have been pleasantly surprised. It is comfortable, practical and returns around 40MPG on a motorway run if I stick at 70'ish which I don't think is too bad. My previous car was Renault Laguna estate which gave me good, if poorly built service. Prior to that I had a MI, face lift focus estate. The Cmax is great to drive and handles well for a taller car. So far so good. After reading various blogs on other sites and some of the stuff on here I wait to see if I get any of the reported problems, I hope not!!
