It's been years since I've been in this forum.  My 2013 C-Max is around 57,000 and needs a new transmission.  I live in Florida, drive on the highway, with the air conditioner on.  Some google searches show that the Energi is having problems with their transmissions.  Is the car really that delicate?

Go to this thread and it has all the info. http://fordcmaxhybri...t-have-failed/ 

The problem was a defective bearing and you are under warranty so no problem there.  Probably take a week or so, good luck with that. :) Had mine replaced at 98k mi., got 152k mi. now. :)

Thanks.  I've been reading the thread.  I'm really glad I took the car in!  And even more glad that it is still under warranty.  I purchased an extended warranty when I purchased the car, and it is now getting close to the time to renew.  I'm thinking I will renew it, it seems like a good idea.

I extended mine out to I think 124k, remember Hybrid parts are warranty for 8yrs/100k miles and some places longer. :)

Yep, bearing problem on 2013s, Hybrid and Energi versions alike. My transmission started audibly failing quite early on and I had it replaced a few months ago (car now has about 62k). Apparently the trans was redesigned early into the 2014 model year to fix this issue, so the new trans is unlikely to fail.

 

I have thought about making the switch to an Energi and there are good deals on 2013 Energis, but after all the angst trying to get the dealer to acknowledge and act on the problem, I wouldn't buy one that hadn't already had the trans replaced, particularly since I don't imagine it's any easier to get warranty service when you're the second owner and didn't buy the car at your local dealer.

Shouldn't make a difference if the warranty is transferred. :)
