I'm now a C-Max newbie. I wanted auto transmission and a real driver's car. My wife wanted a high driving position and a big boot that she could squeeze into a smallish parking place. We came close to buying a diesel Zafira when I started reading all the stories on the internet about the Vauxhall diesel problems. Then when we were looking at the C-Max I saw horror stories about the Ford diesels as well, so I was led to the 2.0 Auto Petrol Zetec with parking sensors. My new car will be delivered in a week or so. It seems like it will be a great car, but I have two worries: will the fuel consumption bankrupt me; and will I soon be pining for my old reliable Toyota when the minor problems start to mount up?
