HI to all from a C-max newbie.

Just bought today an '06 petrol Zetec 115, trading in a trusty '02 Focus Zetec tddi, due to getting older and feeling the cold on my commute. I want heat quickly these cold mornings!!


First impressions are it goes ok, similar performance to the Fusion 1.4 petrol we used to own, though the C-max is 200 kg heavier. Would love to better 40mpg average, we'll see...

I noticed a little rattle at cold start-up, for just a sec,which I presume is the hydraulic tappets pressurizing and nothing to worry about?

Bye for now.

Welcome to the site. You have a 1.6 petrol, yes? There should be no rattles at start-up, and the engine should warm up super fast [less than 2 minutes from cold in my car]. But please don't expect 40+ MPG, especially if you are commuting. You should be getting about 33 in town, 37 in mixed driving, and 43 on a motorway. I really like my car and I hope you will like yours too.
