While I'm impressed that the C-Max battery issues in these SE's were 3/4 under warranty, I also don't call this performance over 100K miles extreme. Continue it for the next 100K and I'll be impressed. Is that reasonable? Let's look at other hybrids (ignoring normal oil changes, tire rotations, etc.).
2015 Honda Accord, n=3
Nothing in 30K miles
VW Jetta, n=4
66K radiator replaced
10K 12V battery replaced
40K spark plugs
49K battery monitoring control module and rerouted mk wiring to different power source due to vehicle not moving while in gear
7K towed, 12V battery replaced
9K 12V battery replaced
30K replace fuel injectors, fuel pump and pressure sensor, evap vent valve
32K replace evap purge valve
31K replace brake booster, booster sensor
31K (60 miles later) towed, replaced brake booster relay.
42K replaced spark plugs
44K replaced leaky oil plug
85K replaced spark plugs.
2013 Chevy Malibu, n=4
111K replaced battery control module
112K towed for dead battery, jump start
117K towed for dead battery, jump start
118K replace 12V battery
120K tighten battery cables and jump start
122K replaced front crankshaft seal
123K towed for flat tire (aftermarket TPMS), jump start, repair cable from battery to fuse block
4K replaced battery cooling fan
9K inspect generator control module - recall
24K replaced generator control module - recall
91K towed to shop, weak 12V battery
92K towed to shop, replaced 12V battery
93K replaced blower motor
99K replaced gas cap to clear "check engine"
120K BCM reprogrammed - recall
120K repaired key, broke off in ignition switch
126K flush AC, replace compressor, drier element and recharge
128K fixed drivers side door panel, resealed oil pan, replaced from cover gasket and crank seal
... and that's just two vehicles, the other two are similar. Clearly a 100K mile car!
2013 Honda Civic, n=4
28K AC compressor
100K wipers, air inlet cover, drive belt ,radiator hoses, thermostat
165K replace 12V battery
2011 Hyundai Sonata, n=2
Nearly identical and flawless, until
120K diagnosed for low 12V battery. Motor inverter fault, inverter shorted. Cost $10,000
Changed my mind. Our C-Maxs are EXTREMELY RELIABLE
