Currently a 2010 Prius owner (104K miles, 54.6mpg calculated average, zero issues with the car). Looking to add a new vehicle to the stable (Prius would be passed on to my son). Looked at the new Prius and although the ride and handling are improved over the old model IMO it is just too over styled (OK ugly) and over priced (29K for what we would want).
The C-MAX was on our short list but when we found that Ford was offering an $11007 incentive on a lease this vehicle moved to the top of our list. After a test drive we were very impressed with the ride, handling, power and construction. These factors have moved this vehicle to the top of our list. That said I have some concerns that I was hoping this forum could address:
- What are the major issues people are seeing with this car?
- Would you consider owning this outside of warranty and trying to put 150-200K on it (looking for something we can pass to our second son in 4-5 years)?
- Would you buy another one?
Thanks in advance!
