... Don't get me wrong, I love the car and even mpg of 35 I would have bought it but maybe its the FEMALE THING...

Sorry to hear you car's got bugs. You are not alone, but rest assured that we also have a thread for those of us who have no problems at all...

 

Here's one owners' story; you'll be happy to know he's a poster to No Problems Mon...

http://fordcmaxhybri...thread/?p=28845

The problems start

http://fordcmaxhybri...thread/?p=29771

and are resolved

http://fordcmaxhybri...thread/?p=30434

 

Just don't take crap from service; there are too many of us here who haven't had to. There are a ton of features in this car, sometimes we need to learn, sometimes the car needs to learn, sometimes the dealership needs to learn...

 

HAve fun,

Frank

Take a look at JohnnOhio's post # 246, 256, 269 in flob's link, do any of these symptoms sound like your's?

 

Then look at this thread, you might want to print post #'s 4, 5, 12 and 15 and very diplomatically give it to your service writer.

It was cool...probably high 50s. It shut off just fine when we got to work at 11pm but when we left at 7am that's when we noticed it. (was a light drizzle that morning)

 

Hi CassyD,

 

If it's any consolation, my MPGs dropped immediately after the upgrade too, but slowly rose over the following month. I was told that there was a *break-in* period for the upgrade, much like that of a new car, only thankfully, not as long. By the end of the summer my commuter MPGs were back to, and in some cases above, the pre-upgrade. Freeway miles, not so much. We shall see what winter brings, since some of the features are supposed to help us in colder weather.

 

Hang in there.....with almost all of us, the MPGs have gotten better.

 

Also, just curious, was it hot/warm the day you had your radio problem?

 

Adair

I left the car outside overnight, gentle rainy night, and now by radio won't shut off...I've had to run to my car during my lunch hour to drive it so the battery doesn't die. What a joke.

Find the fuse and pull it. Problem reoccurred, but not for several years.

Had same thing...Radio couldn't change stations, couldn't change volume.

Went to dealer. Service desk disconnected the 12 volt battery for 10 minutes.  Problem solved!
