2015 Ford C-MAX Pros and Cons at TrueDelta: Great Multi-Purpose Vehicle by crazyboutcars

Bought this vehicle strictly for the seating position and comfort along with the ease of entering/exiting. I've had a couple lumbar surgeries and gone thru about 4 different vehicles over the last few years and they would seem okay on even an extended test drive but become less than that over time. I've had the C-Max for about 4 months now averaging about 1000 miles per month with no back or leg pains. Drove 720 miles (12 hrs)
yesterday with only short stops (one stop for fuel) with no back pain whatsoever. The average MPG of 44 is a great side benefit! The car is basically the correct, functional size, handles pretty good and the hybrid system works seamlessly thus far. I lucked out and located a one-year old loaded SE, factory-owned and driven with first year depreciation out of the way. Think I'll be keeping this car for a while and hopefully Ford will wise up and make the Grand C-Max available on this side of the pond when I'm ready for a different vehicle. The only minor drawback I've noticed is that cargo space is a bit limited with batteries taking up some space under the hatch.

I realize it's early, but how's the reliability been? We're considering trading our PriusV for one of these -- partly because the Prius is deathly dull, but also because I'm a tall guy and find it very uncomfortable, especially an long distance. Love how the CMax feels by comparison -- but have lots of hesitation about buying a Ford. Any issues so far? Thanks!

I've owned it for10 months now and have a little over 17K on it. Only been in the shop for an oil/filter change and to fix a rattle of some kind of shield underneath. Done. There is an open recall on a door latch but parts are not available to fix it as of yet. To sum up I'm still super impressed with the car. Overall mileage is still around 43 with a 50/50 mix of city/hwy. That goes down a bit if the heater is in use but still just a great side benefit of driving this car for the purpose of exit/entry ease and driving position. Only thing I might suggest is to get a SEL or Energi model which has a 10 way power seat. I can see this in my future because realizing all this great mileage is kind of addictive.To address the quality concerns Ford offers after marketwarranty plans to extend the 3/36 and 8/100(I think) on the hybrid system/powertrain. My cars 3 yr will be up in a few months and I may purchase something to cover all the electronic components etc for peace of mind. Hope this helps! Good luck.
