2013 Ford C-MAX 4dr Hatch

141-horsepower 2.0L I4 Hybrid CVT FWD

20500 mi Headliner showed water stains. Dealer sealed the windshield and roof seams, and replaced the headliner. 
20000 mi carpet needed to be reglued in the back storage area 
27700 mi Passenger door panel loose. Replaced door card 
28520 mi Dash board rattles 
33000 mi Carpet started to come off in the rear. The carpet is glued to the rear panels in some places, and the glue lost its bond to the plastic panels. Simple fix, just had to re-glue the carpet. 
10000 mi SIgnificant body flex causes the doors to creak almost continuously. The dealer claims to have repaired this by lubricating the door seals, but the problem is not resolved. The doors creak as much as before the repair visit. 
17700 mi

US $331
Metal speaker cover on the top center of the dash rattles constantly because it's loose. Carpet in the cargo area separated from the plastic flaps that fold down when the rear seats are folded flat. The adhesive holding the carpet has separated from the plastic. 
8000 mi Door seal wasn't put in right when the car was built. 
12500 mi Power liftgate does not close all the way on its own. 
30300 mi Door handle tray was loose. Carpet peeled off from cargo area. 
12000 mi Loose trim on handbrake and luggage area cargo tie-downs. 
7000 mi

US $44
Paint defect reported to Ford. Photos taken. Waiting for approval to repair under warranty. 
10000 mi Brought in to complete the paint work, they had the car 17 days (scheduled for 3). Not completed successfully, and I will not be taking it back. DON'T BUY THE TRI-COAT METALLIC WHITE PAINT, it's a nightmare (and expensive) to repair.

2013 Ford C-MAX 4-door

4-cylinder CVT 2WD

32000 mi interior panel of the rear passenger door (door handle, etc) came apart from the external door panel. I think the plastic pins that hold them together broke. Dealer fixed it under original warranty, but it required two trips. carpet in the trunk lost its adhesion to the floor/back of seats. Dealer glued it back on under warranty. 
35000 mi rubber door seal was ripped and missing on driver's door
