Best hybrid we've had
By jhoxy on
Vehicle
2013 Ford C-Max Energi SEL 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Review
Have been driving this car for about 6,000 miles without a problem. With the federal tax credit and CA rebate, the cost is the same as the regular CMAX hybrid. Nice seating position, pleasant interior, good pickup, and after figuring out the battery limitations, getting about 80-90 mpg in my daily 25-30 mile commutes. The car is very quiet and reasonably pleasant even on 400 mile drives (although only get about 38 mpg on gas alone @ 70 mph). The extra battery does limit space and may be a deal breaker if you have a family of 4. Much nicer drive than our prior Prius and Camry hybrids. hybrids
Favorite Features
Seating positon, cargo capacity (can get an 8' long board in without problem). Sync/Sony system works pretty well. Good build quality (so far). Very quiet with little road noise (a big improvement over the Prius). Got a great deal with the Ford Friends and Family program (the dealer did not give us any grief over the discount!) We are seriously thinking of getting a second one, since my wife and I enjoy this more than our BMW.
Suggested Improvements
The all weather mats sold by Ford are pretty small, suggest going aftermarket. Also, the carpeting covering the rear cargo area is already showing signs of wear, and not up to the level of the rest of the car. The extra battery for the Energi seems designed as an afterthought and not as well integrated into the vehicle as in the all electric Focus.
