That test model looks like someone's done a "cut and shut" with two current C-Maxs!
These pictures, snapped by our spies in Germany, show an intriguingly
undisguised Ford C-MAX undergoing testing, which can mean only one
thing - it's a development mule for the all-new C-MAX, due in 2010.
car will be based on the Focus platform and will share most of the
hatchback's engines, though it's not certain whether the 2.5-litre
turbocharged unit from the Focus ST will make an apearance. That said,
the sucess of the Vauxhall Zafira VXR means Ford could be missing a
trick by neglecting to provide a blue oval alternative for Daddy Cool!
new C-Max will be available in North America for the first time too,
and represents a key move in Ford's new â€˜shared technologies' global
engineering strategy, in which it plans to move the company's European
lineup into the floundering US market.
Got a cmax few months back and have several issues to sort out.
I have a howling sound from the back (think the bearings are fine cause there is no clicking and the wheels are firm if you try to shake them),
Rear discs have signs of warping and are probably due for a change. Front...
Has anyone else had an issue with the engine cover rattling and wearing into power steering pipe behind drivers headlight? If you have how did you deal with it?
Thanks in advance
