New to the Cmax and to forums. Live in central Missouri and just purchased a brand new ruby red Cmax sel for my wife, we traded in a 2009 ford flex limited and loved that car but since her new job has a commute of a 70 mile round trip mostly hwy the flex was only getting about 22mpg. when I started looking into new cars i do it differently than most, I test fit them first as i am 6'5 but only have a 32" inseam so i need head room oh and im a big boy at 325lbs
i drove every hybrid out there and being a conservative even a priusv
i wanted the fusion but could not get in the back seat, back seat you say i also have 3 kids at home 16 that is 6'5"
a 14 at 6' and my daughter 11 that is taller than mom already. now you under stand the test fit
the flex was awsome with 3rd row seating but out of the 20k miles she drives we are all in the car only about 1k a year
I saw the c max and wow it looks small from the outside but the inside is so much like the flex and that sold my wife, the kids have to learn how to sit together again but at least i can reach them from the drivers seat easier lol
Now for my questions
We havnt had to fill up yet so no report on mpg other than each trip says about 38mpg
Since the dealer didnt know to much i was wondering since the born on date say 7/13 will this car already have the software update?
thanks and sorry for any bad punctuations and spelling
