2013 CMAX - NOT worth the money
By the_handiman on


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


Purchased our CMAX SEL 11-16-2012 because the sticker in window said 47 mpg, city & hiway. As did the sales person. Have owned the care for 3 weeks and have taken on short 100 mile trips to check mileage. At best the vehicle gets 33 MPG. Took it back to dealer and they say you have to wait until 3,000 for vehicle to get advertised mileage. Car is not worth the money. I do not
advise you buy one, put your money on a vehicle that will give you your monies worth and from a dealer that will support you ..Ford should be ashamed for false advertising and poor excuses for the vehicles poor performance. Don't expect any support from your Ford Dealer or Ford !! Does not come with a spare tire either

Best Features

There are no "favorite features" from a consumer stand point. For Ford, its a great money maker.

Worst Features

Tell consumers BEFORE they spend $30k that they have to drive the vehicle 3,000 miles to see any improvement in mileage and then its no guarantee that you will. Its a ploy to get you off their back for a few months. Try telling the consumer it does not come with a spare tire ! Try telling the consumer that it does not have fog lamps like most cars in this price range do.

Curious to know how you feel now after driving a few months.

Ford does not set the EPA guidelines for testing the MPG, the EPA does and Ford follows them and simply puts the results on the sticker as required.
