Fun to Drive, But There Are Problems........
By jeff364 on


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


The C-Max has great interior design, a good sound system, handles well and seems roomy, but there are nagging problems that drag down the car.

Like another reviewer, my clock just randomly changes time.
The car also randomly starts itself which is a little disconcerting.
The cruise control does not throttle back when going downhill so on a long, steep hill you can end up going 20 - 25 MPH over the speed you set.
I think that is a dangerous defect, although not sure if I just have a defective cruise control or this is a problem with all C-Max cruise controls.

Worst Features

Ford needs to step up to the plate and fix the defects in this car. We all trusted Ford when we bought the C-Max that it would work properly. Time for Ford to do right by their customers.
