We're trying to get rid of our boat anchor of a minivan into something more economical with some $ left over. We bought the minivan thinking our family would continue expanding, but turns out we're sticking to us + the twins (6 years old) + 50lb dog.
The C-max caught my eye due to the large cabin area and EV range. 90% + of our daily driving would almost certainly be in EV mode. However, the after-the-fact placement of the battery is making things really difficult. Our other car is a 2003 VW TDI wagon and it's great, but getting long in the tooth. It's not as safe as the new generation of cars and, with 266k miles, not as reliable (thought it hasn't done anything to us yet). Thus, the C-max needs to be able to take our family of 4 with kids in high-back boosters + dog + cargo on a 6hr trip. I heard there is a cargo expansion thread here (referred by Mr. Money Moustache) so going to start poking around.
The ones we've seen / driven have been 2014 model year in the $12k range with about 30k miles.
Any suggestions / guidance / quick slap-downs-your-nuts-to-be-even-thinking-about-it are welcome.
