Hello all just traded my 07 Fiesta 1.6 Auto Ghia 13000 mles in for a 2008 CMAX Style 6800 miles
with the sports pack and Panoramic Glass roof... still 1.6 petrol but 5 speed.
I was not too impressed with the fuel economy of the Fiesta so not looking for anything remarkable from the Cmax either! Mind you the Fiesta was quite rapid but it was black and showed every mark! Cmax is silver! :)
Will keep yo posted on how mit performs... watch this space

Vanman welcome
You have a CMAx not a Transit (VBG)
There are various posts regarding the less than brilliant MPG for all the petrol due mainly to the gear ratios I'm afraid that can't really be changed. This also may give rise to the question of engine speed at motorway cruising speed which is a related issue
Hope you enjoy the different outlook on the road being that bit higher up

I think the fact that my Fiesta was an auto did not help the fuel consumption... hoping the 5 speed will be a tad better. The larger car will be nice too as just my fishing gear had the Fiesta full!! Oh my name vanman is old and stuck as I used to own a fleet!!
