Value Writeup

With the all-new C-MAX, Ford has given the hybrid world a shot in the arm. The C-MAX is a stylish alternative to more established players like the Prius, and its combined 47 mpg fuel efficiency will take you far. Even better, after a generous federal tax credit, the Energi plug-in model is the most affordable plug-in hybrid in America--besting high-efficiency competitors such as the Chevy Volt, Nissan Leaf and Toyota Prius plug-in.


Pros

Excellent efficiency and power from both the hybrid and the "Energi" plug-in hybrid models; small car styling with lots of interior space; competitive pricing


Model Highlights

The new C-MAX redefines Ford's endeavor in the world of hybrids. Two models in three trims are offered: the Hybrid SE and SEL, as well as the plug-in Energi. All are powered by a 2.0L inline-4 Atkinson engine with an electric motor, which total 188 total system horsepower. The difference in the Energi is its battery. That car utilizes a 7.5kWh Lithium-ion battery (vs. a 1.4Wh cell in the regular Hybrid). This means the battery alone can power the car, without any gas engine assistance, for a range of up to 20 miles. And whereas the Hybrid's smaller battery is recharged solely by the use of the gasoline engine, the Energi's battery can be plugged into either a 120- or 240-volt outlet for a total charge time of either 7 or 2.5 hours, depending upon the outlet's voltage. All C-MAX powerplants are mated to an electronic continuously variable transmission driving the front wheels. So equipped, the Hybrid is EPA rated at a combined 47 mpg, while Ford claims the Energi can deliver a 95 mpg equivalent.

Inside, a dual-LCD SmartGauge with EcoGuide keeps drivers informed with real-time system information, which helps ensure maximum efficiency from the C-MAX driving experience. It is fully customizable and easily control through steering wheel-mounted switches. The gauge indicates instant fuel economy and fuel economy history, in addition to other, more common features such as odometer readout.

Technology is infused in nearly every aspect of the C-MAX. Available on all models is SYNC with MyFord, which provides hands-free access to everything needed to keep the driver informed: a 4.2-inch LCD screen, telephone, Bluetooth audio, turn-by-turn navigation and more. SYNC with MyFord Touch adds even more great features, including an 8-inch touch central screen with dual 4.2-inch screens, WiFi capability and voice recognition.

The C-MAX Hybrid SE comes equipped power mirrors with integrated turn signal indicators, with 17-inch aluminum wheels, power one-touch up/down windows all around, 60/40 split-fold rear seat, dual-zone climate control, SYNC MyFord voice-activated communications and entertainment system and a leather-wrapped tilt/telescopic steering wheel with audio and cruise controls. In the Hybrid SEL and Engeri models you'll find power heated mirrors, fog lamps, rain-sensing wipers, a reverse sensing system, ambient lighting, SYNC with MyFord Touch, heated seats with 10-way power adjust on the driver's side, and much more.

Several packages are available on the C-MAX, including a Winter Package, Power Liftgate Package, a Premium Audio Package and two different technology packages.

All C-MAX models benefit from seven airbags, AdvanceTrac stability control, traction control, and 4-wheel anti-lock brakes.

After its introduction in 2013, the C-Max returns for 2014 unchanged in both hybrid and plug-in hybrid forms.

Summary
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2013-2014 Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ vehicles manufactured August 15, 2012, through September 10, 2013, 2013-2014 Ford Escape vehicles manufactured June 5, 2012, through August 12, 2013, and 2013-2014 Ford C-Max vehicles manufactured from July 23, 2012, through May 28, 2013. The driver and passenger seatback assemblies may have been produced with sub-standard weld joints used to attach the seat back recliner mechanism to the seat frame. The affected seat backs may have insufficient strength to meet the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 207, "Seating Systems."

Consequence
The back of the subject seats may become loose or lean while driving and potentially increase the risk of injury in certain crashes.

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace the seatback, free of charge. The recall began on May 30, 2014. Owners may contact Ford at 1-800-392-3673. Ford's number for this recall is 14C03.

Summary
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2014 Focus and C-Max vehicles manufactured August 8, 2014, to August 15, 2014. The affected vehicles may have steering gears that were incorrectly assembled.

Consequence
The incorrectly manufactured steering gears may cause impaired steering, including the loss of steering control, increasing the risk of a crash.

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace the steering gears, free of charge. The recall began on November 11, 2014. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-800-392-3673. Ford's number for this recall is 14S18.

Summary
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2013-2014 C-MAX, and Escape vehicles. In the affected vehicles, the restraint control module (RCM) may have errors in the programming software which may result in a delayed deployment of the side-curtain rollover air bag.

Consequence
If the side-curtain rollover air bag is delayed in deploying in certain rollover circumstances, the risk of injury to the passengers is increased.

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the RCM, free of charge. The recall began on May 30, 2014. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-800-392-3673. Ford's number for this recall is 14S04.

Summary
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2013-2014 Ford C-Max vehicles manufactured January 19, 2012, to November 21, 2013; Ford Fusion vehicles manufactured February 3, 2012, to August 24, 2013; Ford Escape vehicles manufactured October 5, 2011, to November 1, 2013; and Lincoln MKZ vehicles manufactured April 25, 2012, to September 30, 2013. The coating on portions of the Restraint Control Module (RCM) may crack, and when exposed to humidity, circuits on the printed circuit board may short.

Consequence
The short circuits could cause the frontal air bags, side curtain air bags and the seat belt pretensioners to not function as intended when needed, increasing the risk of occupant injury in the event of a crash.

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace the RCM, free of charge. Parts are not currently available. The recall began on May 26,2015. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 14S21.
