Hello, I just purchased a 2014 C-Max Energi 1-7-19. I want a trailer hitch for a bike rack and cargo carrier. I live in Orlando Florida. I wonder what shipping would cost? How do you like you C-Max? So far I am loving mine. Since I bought it, I have only seen one other one on the road. Mine is fully loaded, with the fancy roof and everything. I am just learning how everything works. I know I have used very little gas. The hitch looks good on your car, not to noticeable.
Sorry, I sold the hitch quite some time ago.
Personally I have very mixed feelings on the C-Max. Mine has every option as well. I came from a 2004 Prius and also have a 2011 Sienna.
Part of my issue is that the C-Max doesn't have the EV range to get me to work, and once I start burning gas, it's not as efficient as the Prius.
Also, this is my first Ford and it just seems like things were made to "kinda/mostly" work, or just kinda finished enough to pass... So... While my Toyotas had keyless unlock/start, parking sensors, etc and I've yet to ever have a problem with ANY of them... Well, on the C-Max, the sensors don't tell me where the problem is and they fault every time there's any precipitation/dirt,etc on them. And the door sensors this time of year work about 40% of the time... The audio/navigation stuff in the C-max usually works, but once every few months some random hiccup (like the radio not tuning stations, or the volume just stopping responding, etc) will require climbing under the passenger side dash, removing a panel and then trying to get pliers around a couple tiny fuses to reboot the thing.
Things like air filters... On the Toyota the engine air filter is like 2 clips, swap filter. In the C-Max, you have to get out wrenches, screwdrivers, etc, pull a couple hoses, connectors, bolts, remove the entire engine cover(which there isn't technically room to do, you have to bend the plastic), then take out more bolts and you can finally swap the filter and reverse the procedure.
Cabin filter? Toyota: Press in the sides on the glove box, flip it down, one clip and swap the filter. On the C-max: Climb under the passenger dash again, get your flashlight, have a screwdriver, reach up underneath where you can barely see, remove a screw, then a plastic panel, then pretty much fold the filter in half(cause again... there's not actually room to get it in or out...) and get it out. Then, carefully fold up the new one and try to get it back up into the slot that's only half exposed, then try to get the cover back in(cause you can't see half of it), screw back in and THEN you can climb back out from under the dash...
The touchless rear hatch? That *mostly* worked for a while. Haven't seen any sign of action out of it in months at this point.(via foot anyway). Though of course when it WAS working, it would go up plenty of times I DIDN'T want it to, like while walking past with my head under it getting groceries out, or with a bike rack on the back that it would hit....
Just a lot of little stupid things where it feels like Ford just didn't care enough to finish up their work and it's just so much nicer in the Toyotas to just have everything work all the time and make things easier.
Sorry, I don't mean to make you question your decision. It's not really that bad of a car, it just ends up bugging me a lot. It's just not really the car for me. But as with most things in life, I seem to be the exception. Most everyone else seems to really like theirs. (:
