Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Ford S-Max MPV?
Despite the generally durable nature of the Ford S-Max, it is still worthwhile checking the interior for any rips, tears or stains in the upholstery. These cars tend to be bought by families and private hire taxi firms, so it's possible that many different people have sat in its seats – possibly those who don’t care as much about the car as you do.
Check all the cubbies to make sure the lids covering them work as they should. The seats should slide backwards and forwards just as easily as they did when new. Then check the rear bumper, because suitcases may have been simply dragged out of the load area, dropping down onto the top of the bumper and potentially damaging it.
