    My car

    I enjoy the sitting position and the versatility of rear seats, but rear axle noise is a problem even after a bearing change - it sounds as if it's a fault in the design, but this could be different tyres - I'm not sure.

    Road holding is great, and the ability to put 6ft-tall students in the rear is a bonus.

    My car

    I needed a car with a higher seating position because of medical issues. Having test driven various cars, I plumped for the 2.0 Titanium auto.

    I added cruise control, dual-zone climate control, traction control and the Titanium X pack (leather with power seats and bum warmers, 6-CD Sony stereo, privacy glass, and front/rear parking sensors).

    My previous car was a BMW 318i auto. The C-Max is brilliant in all respects. It is quiet, quick when required and very comfortable. It is easy to get into and out of it, especially with the leather seats.

    I did wonder if the fit and finish would be as good as my BMW and was very pleased - the C-Max is up there with the BMW.

    The auto box has the benefit of Tiptronic shifts if required. The car sits 'high' on the road but roadholding is first class.

    I must also praise Mark Kenny, the salesman at Paynes of Hinckley, for all his help and advice. Would I buy another one? You bet!

    My car

    I'm now onto my third gearbox in this Ghia Auto since it was new in November 2006.

    My dealer all but called me a liar regarding problems with this car! I would not buy another Ford again!

    My car

    I have had this car for two-and-a-half years. It had slight problems at first, but these were sorted by Polar Ford of Warrington.

    My previous car was a Vauxhall Zafira 1.6 - a good car with no problems. I had this car for three years but a Zafira is no match for the C-Max.

    It is not as well built and, being petrol, is nowhere near as fast or as economical as the C-Max.

    It's an excellent car - just short on seats.
