My current car, 2014 Focus SE was totaled in an accident a month ago. I have been looking at various replacement cars since then. I just located a 2015 C-Max Energi SEL with 32K miles about a 100 miles from me. I would like to hear what everyone things, and are there any specific problems I should look out for?

Would really be a good upgrade, and after 2013, I think they really got the bugs out. It's really been fun learning all the tech stuff about the car. It's getting cold here and the "my go time" is nice to get into a warmed interior without using any of the battery charge or gas to warm it up.

I could have sworn I posted an answer yesterday, depending on the price and the tax credits for your state you might want to look at a 2017 there are quite a few in Denver that Sticker for  28K Feds have a 4K tax credit (you have to pay not owe 4K in taxes to take advantage of it) and a 2K state tax credit.  That should bring the actual cost for the car down to about 20K for a new car with zero miles and 3 yrs of warranty.

 

Heck if you search far and wide you might even find a 2016 somewhere!

Even with a 4K credit (there are no state credits here) that would be out of my budget. The one I've been looking at is under $15,000.

While most people's batteries seem to be doing very well, call them before you test drive to get them to charge it up so that you can drive it on electricity, get that experience, and get an idea of the range.

 

Also consider getting a full BEV and renting a car when you have to go out of town. If I'd bought the Focus Electric on the lot next to my C-Max instead, I would have saved $3000, which would have paid for way more rentals than I would have needed.

Convenience of being able to jump into your car and not worry about whether it's charged up enough or not or do I have enough range to go anywhere is got to be worth a lot to me. :smile2:

My go time only does that if you are plugged in to a 220v charger. 110v doesn't have enough juice to heat the car for go time.

Thanks for the comments, but I ended up buying a Kia instead of the energi.

That's a $5000 CO state tax credit. I conformed it with my tax accountant.
