I have not been on the forum for some time. I have since retired and just became busy with other stuff. A big one is the purchase of a ProMaster van. For a big tall van I am getting up to 22 MPG (avg 18 - 19 mpg). I am happy with that. Making my own camper van. Fun project and it will take some of the load off of the C-Max. Using the C-Max for more local stuff now and the van for trips.
My C-Max has over 50K on it now. Still love to drive it. Winter has been very cold here in Michigan as many have said. I still play with keeping the heater off as much as I can but it really hurts the FE. Also my other half is using the car more now that I am not working. He is not concerned about FE. Just drives it and cranks the heat. Still life time avg FE of about 47 MPG.
No problems with the C-Max other than it getting hit in a parking lot. Tailgate was replaced.
Still think the C-Max is a great car and a great value. I would buy the SE model again as long as it had the 8" display and winter package. Hope that Ford come out with a bunch of great hybrid and electric cars in the future. From what I hear they seem to be behind many other companies for getting these out there. Not sure when the C-Max replacement is due? I thought it was soon but I have not heard much about it lately.
