Ya know.....I'm always on the look-out for C-MAXes and today I saw 2.....both on Michigan Ave eastbound off of I-94. One was whatever the dark grey is and the other was an Ice Storm. I waved like a MANIAC at both of them but I may as well have been invisible! Are we (as in *us on this forum*) that unique that we are looking and *the others* (as in *those NOT on this forum*) not looking at all? Curious minds want to know!

A CMax desert.

I live in San Diego and in the 2 months I've had and loved my CMax {SPARKY} I have only seen two others.

 

1 is co-worker who bragged about his 48 mpg ... until he sat in min and saw my 347 mpg {I live close to work, never use gas}.

The other was a random sighting, in Mission Valley, same color as my own. But Sparky looks cooler 'cause I added chrome window pillars, a color match door guards with chrome stripe and shark fin antenna.

 

I can't imagine why this car isn't more popular than the Prius. I shopped both in CMax is far superior.

We must be in different parts of town. I too am in San Diego. There's one down the street from where I live, I pass the same two every day from where I park to walk to work (a Ruby Red and a whatever-gray), and there have been two others (a white and a candy blue, both energies) on that walk on random days. I feel like I see random ones every day or two. One day last summer, I saw three other Candy Blues!

GOTTA get the shark fin for sure it's a must. Cant believe it's not stock as the fishing pole looks so old and outdated on this very modern car.

I bought mine last year. Started seeing them every so often. Always they are driving by.

 

I had the only one in the parking lot at work in a sea of SUV's until last month. Someone has gotten a Ruby Red SEL now. Haven't been able to find who it belongs to, but I keep watching and checking.

Regardless of what the sales figures say, I'm seeing more all the time around the Ann Arbor area. I pass at least 3 on my way to/from work every day.

@Adair, I travel that route twice a day every day from the Irish Hills to Wayne, but I'm usually in my quiet world (the CMax helps). If it was my Ice Storm that passed and I missed the wave , I apologize. I try to acknowledge others, but it really depends what song is playing at the time...

We followed the first C-MAX I've seen up close on the road since our purchase in late March, a Sterling Grey hybrid, traveling westbound on SR 26 in Lafayette Indiana around 6 pm on Friday evening, June 6th.

 

I've seen one other C-MAX 'visiting' in our neighborhood, and several going the opposite direction on various Hoosier interstates.

They're still relatively rare around here. The vast majority of C-MAXes I see are aging gracefully on dealer lots.  :headscratch:

And a grey C-Max parked next to our white one at the UNC Meadowmont fitness center Chapel Hill NC.  I have seen this one a few times, but haven't figured out who the owner is.

Last night was a *3-C-MAX night!* A black Energi parked behind us at dinner @ Emerald City in A2, and then at Matthaei Botanical Gardens for Bee School, there were 2, an Ice Storm and a white. Got pix of all but the white and will post tomorrow. These were none of the ones in my normal flight path!

I have one at my work. Was going to park Maxine next to that car BUT its way hot here in the San Fernando valley so I opt to park my car under a tree for cooler temps. Gray SEL with pano roof.
