Hi all,

I have been lurking for some time on here while trying to decide between a C-Max and the equivalent Renault and Citroen models, and I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who contributes here.

Its a fabulous resource for the panicky car-buyer :)

Havent really decided on which model, but it will be with the 1.8 petrol engine as we dont really do many miles every year.

Actually the whole model thing is so far my biggest irritation with Ford, that you can only get certain fittings with certain models. Seems very inflexible to have to buy the Titanium for example, just to get rear electric windows. The other brands I looked at are far more flexible on what extras you can chose to have/not have.

The one feature I think, having had it as apparently an extra on our LX, that I would now go for again,is a heated front screen

The new C max I have been told is a big improvement on the old Focus c max model.

I have a petrol 1.8 04 reg Focus c max I know of someone with a 1.6 54 reg Diesal and someone with a petrol 1.6 (125) 07 reg.

ALL I MAY ADD HAVE BEEN NOTHINK BUT TROUBLE

I wish you luck because each of us have had endless problems with our cars.

Heres what I have had to replace in two years of owning the car and other issues aswell

NEW AIR CON CLUTCH
NEW ALTERNATOR

Well, after much soul searching I ordered one - in case anyone is interested 1.8 petrol, titanium, parking sensors, DEATC

How weird is it that a spare wheel is an extra nowadays, even though its free?
