Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Ford C-Max MPV?
Carefully check the car's bodywork for any dings or scrapes picked up in car parks and check the alloy wheels for kerb damage. Also check the operation of all the seats, especially those in the boot, and make sure the tailgate operates as it should. Ensure any electrical options work, too.
What are the most common problems with a used Ford C-Max MPV?
Electrical issues are the most common faults on the C-Max, with non-engine electrics being the main area affected. Most parts are shared with other models in the Ford range so are easy to source and relatively cheap.
