All is well at 9 months and 9k miles! :rockon:

Yeah, we have 9 months but only around 6400 (guess I just don't get out as much, although I'm trying :>).  But all is well so far...

Hello Ford Fam,

 

I’m glad to learn that all is well your way, and thanks for sharing.

 

I’ll be here if you need anything!  :)

We just got back from Paris, so the C-Max had a week to rest at the airport. We have had it for over a year now and just reached 12k miles.

My Wife is still loving it and she is so glad I talked her out of buying a Prius!!! :rockon:

@KashmirSwimsuit - You can ask the dealer to look it or I think you can find it by going to www.etis.ford.com. I think I saw it there. Or maybe it was the in service date. It has been a while and honestly I don't remember and I am too slow of an internet connection to browse much to double check. I remeber for sure that at ETIS you can see what updates or recalls were done (if any).

 

We bought a 2014 C-max Energi and really love the car so far. A few minor niggles but no reliability issues. For example the leather should be vented. As it is, the seats are very sweaty in the heat. So we bought sheepskin to cover them. Problem solved. 

 

Take some time to learn how to drive it to get good fuel economy (FE). A few minor changes in driving style can have a huge impact on mileage. My worst tank was 33 and best about 47 mpg. Current tank though is in the mid-50's! While we have an Energi model, so far it is pretty much just operating in hybrid mode. I am working out of town and we have no real options to plug it in. To use the commercial chargers it is more than gas when I factor in the cost per mile.

 

Since the cost was almost the same to buy the Energi as the normal hybrid version, we went with the Energi. It is really impressive how well it runs on just electric.So far the best we've done on purely electric is 29 miles. The real benefit though for us is being able to choose when to run purely electric or use the gas motor.

 

There are times where we were stuck in terrible traffic in LA average about 3-5 mph. By running in purely EV (electric mode) we were using the EV mode where it was most efficient and not kicking on the gas motor at all for about 45 min. In the hybrid mode it would have had to start maybe 10 times or so dropping the fuel economy.

My wife's 2014 has 74000 ml on it now. The rear door latch stoppers had to be adjusted because the door wouldn't open completely any more (we had to push it down hard to get it to open). We had a flat tire on the freeway and had to get towed and buy a new tire. The lug nuts are swollen and I had to destroy some  to get them off. Thinking of buying solid ones because I also want to do my brakes in the future. Left front blinker bulb overheated (probably while using the emergency lights while waiting for the tow) and melted the plastic socket....it's a pain to change because you have to remove the entire assembly. Also changed cabin and engine filter and it's not too much fun either. Car is really low and my wife got stuck on one of these parking stoppers once and ripped part of the front undercover off. They make it hard to do your own maintenance on this car. Other than that it runs good.
