2013 Ford C-Max Hybrid Wagon SE 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

Just bought the 2013 at Edmunds FMV. Very nice machine. Trip MPG is 47-48 if you stay at or bellow 65 MPH. If you drive with a bit of finesse and use the little cruise guide on the display on the left in city and cruise control on the highway you'll get very close or better to the advertised MPG. It does take a little practice to get comfy with the infotainment but practice makes perfect and only a bit more complex than my GM Saturn vue. If you do lead foot it you'll be surprised. Brilliant automotive engineering by Ford!

2013 Ford C-Max Hybrid Wagon SE 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

I am surprised by some of the negative reviews so I wanted to weigh in that I am at 11,000 miles and love my c-max. I did get a late model 2013 and had to wait for after recalls. Maybe they fixed the glitches before I got mine. LOVE IT!!!


Favorite Features

Really MOVES!


Suggested Improvements

An eco option to help lead-footed people like me get better gas milage. I get 40 but haul-xxx.

Review

Everything is great except the quality. We purchased a C-Max for our business and it has been a disaster. When it works we loved it... Is it worth it to have a vehicle that may leave you stranded at any point? "NO." You cannot unlock doors without power. We have had to abandon the vehicle and use an alternate to get our work done on three occasions. I was so pleased to give Ford another chance but what a disappointment. Do not buy this car until they figure out the bugs and fix them. I will never buy another Ford.


Favorite Features

Displays are clear and nice looking. Decent styling.


Suggested Improvements

Fix the electrical systems! This car has died three times and gone to the dealership each time. Sure it is under warranty but I wish it was under the sea. Nothing like being stranded three times by a brand new vehicle. Boo Ford.

Review

I loved my c-max at first. Didn't mind the first time it went dead for no reason. I thought it was my fault. But after the third time...Come on Ford, stop making excuses. Now it is in the shop again and they tell me it is the transmission that has to be replaced! Really, only 30,000 miles in 1.5 years and I am driving a rental for the 4th time. I travel for a living. I want out of my lemon, but can't afford to trade off because of the upside down amount. Guess I am stuck.


Favorite Features

Cargo space and gas mileage


Suggested Improvements

Fix the electrical problems. Transmission problems. Gas mileage not what was originally reported. get rid of the leaves and split the information that is on the other part of the dash. I would love to see my trip odometer and have the guages showing at the same time. I hate the delay wipe that comes with the wipers when you use the wiper fluid. causes streaks.

Review

This car has been to dealership 3 times to fix the poor performance on gas mileage. Advertised 47/47/47 and lately I am getting 32.5. Gas engine turns on as I am stopping! The second visit to dealership didn't even test drive. Radio doesn't turn on and off with dashboard button. Service bulletin still hasn't fixed that. I don't think they want to do more than throw the $550 check at us. With the sleek design and ability to put some great pzazz into this vehicle, they cut it off at the knees. Hybrid without good gas mileage is not worth anything.


Favorite Features

Good looking vehicle. Some good features. Not enough to pay the reduced purchase price.


Suggested Improvements

Get the total engineering dept behind the fix(es) and get the Cmax to it's previously advertised 47
