My 2013 SEL is in the shop for it's second transmission replacement. first one came at about 83000 miles and this one is at 89000 miles.

 

Gives me an uncomfortable feeling about keeping this car which i otherwise love. So far, I've spent nothing for the repairs.

You are the first person I heard about having a problem with a transmission that was replaced.  

 

C-Maxes have been going over 200,000 miles without major problems except for the original transmissions on the 2013 and to a lesser extent 2014-15s.

 

I would not feel uncomfortable, I would be feeling more comfortable than if I had a 2013 and the transmission was not replace which is my situation.

Update: Many is still at the dealer. They've replaced the tranny and also said there was a leak in the transmission cooling system that may have caused the tranny to die. Seems strange to me as i did not note any fluid on the ground at all. Also they found a bad wheel bearing. The tranny is covered under warrantee and also I believe the cooling system, not the bearing I presume.

 

I'm beginning to think it may be time to unload this car. Sad.

Yes, strange.  Perhaps the leak was connection to cooler or to tranny and fluid dripped on bottom cover only.  How often does one hear about a non / low pressurized cooler or hose develop a leak.  But one would have to loose a lot of fluid to damage tranny and then fluid would likely blow back from cover and drip on the ground off metal.   IMO, it's more likely dealer tech ("tire / lube jock") failed in filling if level was low enough to cause tranny failure.
