Brand new to the C-Max owners club but looking forward to picking up hints and tips from other members. Have just ordered a new C-Max 1.6 diesel Titanium with convenience and family pack plus a spare wheel. this will replace my present Ford Focus. A friend of ours has had a 54 C-Max from new and swears by it so that helped our decision to buy one. We are looking forward to getting out and about as soon as it is delivered. A couple of things have jumped out at me while shopping around for my vehicle. One was the lack of interest from the salesmen at the different Ford dealerships that we have visited, I can only assume that their sales are so good that their attitude has become a "take it or leave" philosophy also the lack of product knowledge is staggering, is it my imagination or did car salesmen used to learn the product inside out to enable them to answer almost any question put to them? Another thing that I find amazing is Fords pricing of the C-Max Titanium X pack - £2000.00 seems absolutely outrageous to me and I can't work out how they have arrived at that price, does any other member agree with this is it just me being out of touch with the pricing.I think the new C-Max is great despite these couple of things and will update how the car is doing when it has got a few miles on the clock.

I agree the X pack seems
expensive at £2000 but when you look at the competition it seems more reasonable:

Best of luck with your new C-Max when you get it, I have had a 2.0 TDCi Titanium on order for 8 weeks and have not been given a build date yet, I'm not sure if Ford are sending any to this country at the moment, I have not even seen one on the road yet!

Hi I have just taken delivery of my Grand C Max fitted with every extra available, It is the Titanium 1.6 Diesal. I am very pleased with the Sony System DAB radio. I think the 2000k for the leather, heated seats panoramic roof with electric blind is very good value for money. I like the red glo of the ambient lighting that is inside on the roof, door handles, door bins, and other areas.

Bit surprised that there are no daylite running light why did Ford skimp on that? The automatic lights that operate when you go around corners are a bonus on the rural lanes of Kent.

All cars manufactured after February 1st due for the European market must have daytime running lights. It's a bit cheezy that Ford still lists it as an option and is willing to take money from people for something by law Ford is obliged to do. I asked the Belgian dealership back in January when I signed for a new Grand C-max and they all played stupid. I had to call Ford Belgium and they confirmed that the car would come with daytime running lights since it would be manufactured in March.

Don't want to nitpick, but there's a little more to it.As ofFeb7, 2011, all new models must have DRL. That doesn't mean all new cars must have DRL. It means that when a new model is presented by themanufacturerfor EU homologation after Feb 7, 2011, the car must have DRL. The new C-max is on sale since Oct 2010, the homologation was way before that, so DRL isn't obligated.But I too feel like Ford is taking advantage of the situation by charging for an item that is going to be standard soon anyway, and will make a new car look dated almost instant, simply by not making one item standard. Being so close to the obligation date when releasing the C-max, it would have suited Ford to make the gesture to it's customers by fitting DRL on every C-max. Instead it, again, profiles itself asgreedy. If I was in the market for a new c-max, I would demand DRL as standard, or shop somewhere else.

Johan! You are correct - I just checked with another sales person at my dealership. He explained exactly what you did. So, a bit less cheezy than I originally thought. It didn't make sense to me at the time, andannoyingthat the others at the dealership could not explain this to me, and that Ford Belgium gave me completely incorrect information (saying that my car would have DRL asa result of the new legislation).
This other sales person offered the option at no cost for me - only 25 euros - still a nice gesture.

Again, Johan, many thanks for pointing this out. I think I'm one of the very few who thinks that DRL is important!

Thanks to all who have replied to me. This one is for Trenny. Don't want to worry you to much but when I went to sort out my new C-Max I wasn't too sure wether to have the 2.0 or the 1.6 (which now has more power than the one I have now) I was shocked when he told me that the earliest I could get a 2.0 delivered would be in September( this was on the 17th March 2011 )and to make it worse he said that the way it was going it could be longer than that. He said there is some sort of issue with 2.0 engines globally. As in my previous email I have now ordered a 1.6 which has been given a date of June for delivery.You may want to have a word with your dealer to confirm this but I feel it must be right as my dealer would have made more by selling me the 2.0 but he said he preffered to be up front with me.

I think you will be happy with your new choice. Cheaper car tax and Insuranceand the MPG on mine at the moment is 48 to gallon and the engine is still tight only 927 miles.

Hi; I'm new here. Haven't ordered yet, but will be doing so shortly. C-Max in white with all the bells and whistles.
Gazza- 2 questions;
1. can you tell me how I go about getting daytime running lights "added", as I've spoken to newmerous salesmen and none seem to even acknowledge that they are an option!

2. Are they LED's? If not,can I get them as an option?

Cheers; Ash.

No not an option, and I think it looks great in frozen white with the dark tinted rear windows and tailgate.

They are not to my knowledge LEDs, but in the spec. they are marked as (in French & German)


Feux de circulation diurnes/Tagfahrlicht which translates as daylight running lights. They are standard on all three versions Amibiente, Carving, and Titanium.







Mine is still at the dealers for a few more weeks, so even though I've seen it I can't drive it yet!
