I love my nerdy little car!
My Ford C-Max Energi was purchased as a last-minute decision because I was changing jobs, turned in my company car, and needed a commuter FAST! I bought it used at CarMax with about 60,000 miles on it and have LOVED driving this car! The fuel efficiency is great and I love that I can drive all weekend on battery only. When I'm sitting in soul-crushing traffic on the way home from work, I console myself with the fact that I'm using almost NO fuel in the process. I take her on road trips and still get 38+ mpg and the ride is smooth and stable. The battery takes up a bit of the cargo space, but I still find there is plenty of room for 2 people to go places with luggage. With the increased weight of the battery and good tires (Michelin Defender!!), this car handles extremely well. The electronics are some of my favorite features. Where did I park this time? There's an app for that! Gosh, it's hot out here - I'd love for my car to be cool and waiting when I get there. Yep, there's an app for THAT (remote start is a very cool features!!) I really would buy another car just like this one if I were in the market right now. It has been the perfect solution for my busy life!
