Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Ford Focus C-Max MPV?

This isn't Ford's best-built car by a long way. Owners report problems with mechanical reliability, bodywork, interior trim and controls - and not just in JD Power customer satisfaction surveys. A read through the reader reviews on this website shows that you need to give the C-Max a close inspection before buying.

The electronic parking brake can give trouble and there has been a recall over this, so ensure that any remedial work has been done. Likewise, there was a recall on the wiper motor over concerns that it may overheat.
