Posted 29 June 2016 - 09:38 AM

We purchased a 2015 Ford Certified Pre-Owned C-Max Hybrid SEL on Monday.  It is Ingot Silver with charcoal black interior, has 25.9k miles and an original delivery date of 05/17/2015.  We also purchased a Ford Protect PremiumCare ESP that will cover most components until 125k or May 17, 2023.  The C-Max replaces a 2004 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx LS that we purchased new in January 2005.  The Maxx had ~123k miles and needed some minor body work.  We were VERY satisfied with the Maxx and would likely have purchased another if that had been an option.  Alas, since a replacement Maxx was not available, after six months of research and test drives, my short list consisted of a C-Max Hybrid, a Mazda CX-5 and a Nissan Rogue.  (We rented a Chevrolet Trax for a week earlier this month.  It was okay, but not remarkable.)  We wanted to try a hybrid, and I decided that the appearance of a CPO SEL in one of my preferred colors was an omen. :)

 

This car seems to have the potential to meet the high level of satisfaction that the Maxx provided.

Congrats on the C-Max. And if you could eat an onion burger for me....  ;)

Well, this forum seems to be dead.  If anyone drops by, I am wondering if the front passenger seat from the current Ford Escape will interchange with the C-Max.  They look very similar and the tracks seem to both have 16" spacing.  My wife has critical of the lack of adjustment (especially, no power) for the front passenger's seat.  I might be able to find a near new Escape seat in a salvage yard.  I doubt the C-Max wiring harness has a connection for a power passenger seat.  But that should not be difficult to deal with.

Welcome.  If you do that, it would be great to start a thread about it.

 

I am not sure why you say the forum seems to be dead.  There are new posts added pretty frequently.  If your "new content" does not work, you might want to try playing with the stuff on the left side of the new content screen - by content type, by time period, other.

I check this site every day and comment when it's relevant. As for your seat, I doubt that there's any electric to plug into. Keep us updated.

Hello all you Ford fans!  I just put a deposit on a new 2016 C-Max SEL hybrid.  I take delivery tomorrow afternoon. So excited!  I'm looking forward to checking out what other C-max owners have to say about this model.

Here is a Link on how to get the best gas mileage thread I started: http://fordcmaxhybri...at-gas-mileage/

This car can be a lot of fun to drive.

Just bought a 2013 Ford C-max Hybrid SEL, 159000KM on it already.  Drived around 1000km on it, 4.3L/km, It is very cool. I hope I can spend a few years with this car.

Hello forum folks - I took delivery of my 2018 C-Max Titanium about 2 weeks ago. So far I am really enjoying it, averaging 46.9 MPG on my daily commute. I'm a weekend musician, so cargo room was important - and there's plenty of room for two professional keyboards, an amp, stand, and seat, while still having seating for two passengers. I've already learned a lot from reading some of the posts here. It's nice to find out about the stuff that's "not in the manual" from other owners.  :)
