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


We purchased a C-MAX after be mesmerized by the idea of 47mpg. Sure we were giving up some room but the trade off was to much to overlook. After owning the C-Max we averaged 37 mpg with 14k miles of constant monitoring of driving habits and fuel use. Ford has stretched the truth and lied to those that purchased this vehicle. For this they should be punished. Sold the C-max and bought a Dodge. I shall never buy another Ford because they can not be trusted. Sure I know all of the disclaimers but 47 city and 47 highway means you should be fairly close to 47 if you keep your foot out of it. YOU WILL ONLY ACHIEVE 47 MPG IF YOU DRIVE MOSTLY CITY DRIVING. THE HIGHWAY WILL KILL YOUR MPG.

Nothing, it was all about the fuel economy and that was less than advertised.

This is one of the sleazy things that car manufacturers are allowed to do in Canada. They will quote MPG in imperial gallons since that is the official gallon in Canada. It is also 20% larger by volume than the US gallon. So the MPG in Canada is always much higher than anything in the US. The vehicle will show US MPG, not imperial MPG. Stick with l/100km north of the border when doing comparisons.
