Excellent car

I was very skeptical at first getting a Ford, but having owned this for a month now I love this car. It has a smooth ride, peppy pick up and good gas mileage. I haven't had to fill up often, but it seems that a typical range for a tank of gas is about 500 miles.

Ford C-Max Hybrid

Get a C-Max Hybrid. The mileage is definitely lower than that EPA rated mileage, and Ford is already having to answer for that. Even so, the high gas mileage and the peppiness of the car make it a worthwhile buy.

Great Job Ford!

I think this car is great; first and most important it's a great car. Drives quite and smooth and the hybrid system shifts seamlessly, if it weren't for a subtle engine noise you would know the car had started using the gas motor. Great MPG I have been getting around 44 mpg this winter (temp near or below freezing most of the time), but when the weather has improved to above the 40's F the mpg has ranged from 46 to 55. It gets about 42 mpg at express way speed, that's running average of 70 mph. I traded our a Deville and this car is as nicely appointed with good all round room and a bunch of super features (note: I got all the bells and whistles :) without that huge care turning radius and exterior size. But most important this is a really good car, I looked at the Volt and Prius and there is no comparison this car is really nice. Best.

Love my C-Max

I bought this car a couple of weeks ago. I have been getting 45 MPG average and am very happy with everything!! The car is very comfortable and handles surprisingly well.

C-MAX is wonderful

I recently was forced to buy a car because my car was totaled by another driver. I searched long and hard for a replacement for my Jetta TDI. After a long search for a fuel efficient, peppy, spacious and fun to drive car, I found my match. The 2013 C-MAX hybrid has been great. I've been getting 45mpg average (even better than that after learning about pulse and glide driving with hybrids online). I've taken the car on a roadtrip to Asheville and got just under 600 miles on the last tank of gas. It has great acceleration when needed. I got the SEL with navigation and handsfree which I'm really liking. I highly recommend this car.

My Bitty

I was very skeptical when I bought my car 2013 SE and I am learning a lot about hybrids and you have to educate yourself before purchasing this type of car. You have to know how to drive it to get the best gas mileage. it is not made for speeding and if you are in a rush, it will burn the gas faster. You have to be very cautious of how you are driving. yet overall it's sort of a luxury hybrid and if you drive it in eco mode , and with caution you will save gas. It had to grow on me because my favorite car is a jaguar, but I had to get a car that I needed and not what I wanted. my gas last me for about 1 week in a half, but I'm still learning how to drive it. Good Luck! Keep up with your car maintenance and warranties as well.

Great car, great price!

The ride is super quiet thanks to being a hybrid, and getting 40/mpg is a plus and that's both city and highway driving. The CMax is very roomy, lots of storage, and a comfortable ride for the long haul. Win-Win no matter how you look at it.

Pros

Fuel Economy

At the cost of gas these days, anything above 20 mpg is a bonus, but 40 mpg is super great.

Cabin Noise

Being a hybrid it's so quiet you almost don't know it's running.

Ride and Handling

Easy turning is tight spaces.

Cons

Technology and Entertainment

The calendar cannot be set to the correct date without going to the dealership.

We love our new Ford C-Max!

It is great on gas. It is quiet and we love the heated seats!
