Looking forward to the pics and testimonial.

edit: ah you live in Mi.
Picked up the C-Max yesterday. We've put 60 miles on it so far. I'll post some pictures and an overview tonight or tomorrow.

So far it has been averaging 44.1 MPG. While I am well aware that many Focus owners have been able to get around 40 MPG out of the Mk3 Focus, our Titanium is currently averaging 31.8 MPG. I have no doubt that some of you could get 50+ MPG with the C-Max.

The 44.1 MPG is in suburban rush hour traffic as well as a short trip to the grocery store. On the highway, the cruise control was set at 75 MPH, just like I would do with my GTI. The six mile round trip to the grocery store resulted in an average fuel economy of 59 MPG.

This is my first hybrid vehicle. A year ago I wouldn't have seen myself purchasing one, but the C-Max was good enough to get me out of my GTI. More to come....
