I BROUGHT MY C-MAX 1.6 STLE PETROL IN 2006 THE BRAKES ARE SPONGY NOTHING TO START WITH THEN THEY COME IN SUDDENLY SEEMS LIKE IM BRAKING HARD BUT YOU CANT 'FEEL' THEM HAVE BEEN BACK TO FORD DEALER MANY TIMES SAID THEY WHERE OK 'SMART BRAKES' SAID THAT THEY BLED THE BRAKES BUT NO DIFFERENT
THE NSF SHOCK ABSORBER MADE A KNOCKING NOISE BOTH REPLACED THE TROUBLE WITH THE FRONT SUSPENSION IS THAT IT IS SO HARD THERE IS NO GIVEIN IT WHEN YOU DRIVE THE C-MAX IS BOUNCING ALL OVER THE ROAD YOU CANT JUST SIT THERE AND DRIVE YOUR FIGHTING TO KEEP IT ONTHE ROAD

THE C-MAX HAS ONLY DONE LESS THAN 5000 MILES AND EVERY TIME I DRIVE IT I END UP WITH A BACK ACHE
