2013 C-Max Hybrid

OK, I get off work and when I get back to the hotel I park right next to a 2013 Ford C-Max Hybrid that has Michigan license plates that say "Manufacturer" on them. I've taken some pictures and will see if I can upload in a couple days.

The C-Max? I don't know if we're talking about the same model, but I think it looks great; it's not unlike the Focus, actually.

I have a C-Max on order. For me, it's cheaper than a compareable Focus or Escape. A-plan + $1000 rebate + $3000 from work for purchasing a hybrid + a discounted loan for purchasing a hybrid = C-Max wins. It has 85% of the storage space of the Escape, and gets over 60% better fuel economy. It also removes the bane of my recent existience, the Ford DCT!

Here are some fancy pics for everyone's reference. Looks a helluvalot better than it's main competition, the Prius V and Mazda5. Looks like the Escape and the C-Max gave birth to the Focus.

That's awesome that Bball's work gives him an incentive to buy it. Who do you work for, Al Gore Consulting LLC?

Kam, I work for a large financial institution. Al Gore Consulting probably pays pretty well though. You need money to be smug. I am not one to turn down money for something I was thinking about buying anyway. It eliminates the payback period vs the Focus.

Super deal, also besides the great cargo space the C-Max is a super drivers car, something the Prius will never be

Good choice

and also fold down seats without having to remove the head restraints
