Main thing to watch out fpr is the alternator packing up.
Don`t have an epb,but from reading all that has happened to those who have I`m real glad I don`t have it.I think one of the main probs with it is getting used to it,although I think it caused electrical probs on early C-Max (you`ll have to read through past posts to get all the info).
Welcome by the way.
I have just replied to your post about mpg so I`ll not go into that again.
Nice to have you with us.

It`s in the post behind this New Cmax owner.
Another thing to watch out for is a loss of power,sort of like you have no turbo.If you get that & the engine light comes on,then it`s probably the EGR valve.It`s a dealer job & is about £300.I had mine done a couple of weeks ago.

HI!

I have the same car, am averaging 48 mpg on combined, but it really likes the motorways and will do 55+ on them.

The EPB takes a bit of getting used to but I think I'm slowly getting the hang of it. There are lots of posts about it if you do a search.

Regards

Tim
