I average over 40 mpg; often 45 mpg. I suspect that will go down in the winter due to gas engine running more for heat. This car sits higher than alot of cars making getting in and out much easier. The interior is roomy and rich with lots of head room. It's quiet (little to no engine noise or road noise and little wind noise). It rides smoothly and solid. The gas and electric engines transfer without notice. This is not a Prius dog. It has get-up-and-go. Even at highway speeds, you can tromp down for passing. It's not a sports car but it is fun to drive and people are surprised (as I was) by its spunk. I believe this car offers more value than most. Try one out. You will be pleasantly surprised.
Took care of all needs quickly and professionally. I would highly recommend them to others. Went the extra mile to get my issue solved and me on my way.
The joy of a CMAX
by Bob Hamme from Elizabethtown ky

42 mpg, 13 gallons to fill up, as much leg room, headroom, shoulder room, as you could imagine us such a compact package. Very smooth ride that beats Cadillacs we have had. Zero repairs in 3 years ownership. Ford is discontinuing so grab one quick. Ford is killing this hybrid at the same time introducing models with less ride quality and interior room. Thank goodness they made the CMAX because not they have set a standard to try to meet in the future. Cost less than Prius and is far easier to get in and out of. Great car!
Skip asked us what we were looking for and showed us a few cars that were possibilities. No pressure. The paperwork flowed well. The loan they got for us was good too. The people we dealt with were nice, not smarmy. We have taken our vehicles there for service and repair. We highly recommend Van Drunen.

We bought this 2 years ago in November. We traded in our Escape and started looking at something bigger. The salesman brought this around, just asked me to sit in it to see if I liked it. First time I'd ever driven a hybrid. Since then we've made several long trips in it and average around 42 mpg. Other than repairing a HVAC blend door and radio touch screen, no issues at all. Very well built
Received a call from Shadi Salman about a specific car and incentives that was available. Went out the day, Shadi was kind, curtious, and very helpful. I will recommend Shadi Salman at Currie Gord as a salesperson to my family & friends.
We put 50,000 miles on it.

Great car. Sorry Ford decided to discontinue it. Their mistake, we would have purchased a new one. Only down side of this car was the turning radius, we would need to back up to re-align the car to pull into a parking spot. Other than that it was fun to drive and watch how well you brake and charge the battery. We got about 41 mpg.
I have had several vehicles including a Suburban and this Ford Edge is my favorite. I owned a Ford Fusion and loved that but wanted something with Awd and off the ground. My fusion has over 300,000 and still running that’s why I recommend Ford products.
First time buying online. Great communication throughout the whole process made me very comfortable with my purchase. I will recommend them to all my friends.
Is a great car for a traveling Nurse.

I love ’’ my red C-Max. Tan leather interior, style, is sexy and, when is being driven I get thumbs up ’. I got a Gord in memory of my late husband. He loved ford. We had edge, F150, explore. And a fiesta.
I bought a 2016 C-Max SEL model new less than six months ago, and it was one of the best purchases I've ever made. I've only put about 5k miles on it, but I average between 39-41 miles per gallon depending on the day and it's been smooth, quiet, head and leg room is great, generous cargo space for the size of the car, it has met all of my needs so far. Very happy with this purchase.
Walked in one day after previously looking at a new car in the lot for my wife. Within 10 minutes after talking to John Vanik and Tim Duda I received and excellent lease deal on a new Rouge Sport that I could live with.They gave me a rock bottom deal, much better than I had expected. A few days later I came back to lease the vehicle. They also gave me a great price on the paint protection package.
They were very courteous and helpful. I would recommend them and the dealership.
Love my first hybrid
by Owner of "Carl Ford" from Graham, NC

After owning many cars over the past 40+ yrs I decided last year to buy my first hybrid. After extensive research I chose a low mileage 2016 CMax SEL Hybrid over the more $$$ Prius. Besides saving $$$ & buying American I LOVE this car!!! Great look, average 48 mpg, excellent handling, rapid acceleration, high end features, great height, quiet/comfortable ride. Not one issue thus far. Can't understand why Ford does so little to advertise this great model. People contantly tell me they never heard of it, their loss & Ford's.
I worked with Jan from Carvana- she was able to explain to me the process, make sure I was comfortable with where it was at, was able to be reached and kept communication open. The pick up process went smoothly and I was able to sell my car without any glitches.
Great Accomplishment For American Iron
by Monkmoose from San Diego, Il.

A lot of technology for the price.
Great inside room for the outside dimensions.
Certainly as good if not better than a Prius....
I can't wait to see American hybrids of the future.
After visiting several of the typical dealerships I walked away confused and Unsatisfied. After visiting Carvana.com I picked out a vehicle to my liking and price point fill out the paperwork got approval I had my new vehicle delivered to my front door. Most typical dealerships you spend half a day walking away with an overpriced vehicle in an overpriced interest-rate. Carvana has made it an enjoyable experience and it can be done from the luxury of your Home. Thanks Carvana.
Best Big Small Car !!!

We love our CMax! This is the second one we have owned. We bought this one at Precision Fleet Services to pull with our Motorhome.
We wanted a small car but my husband is 6’ 4” We can’t believe how much headroom he has in the CMax!
I always say this car is bigger on the inside than the outside!!
The interior space is great even in the back seat! Plus we love the energy efficiency! We are getting about 40 MPG
This is a great car and I highly recommend it to anyone!!
My experience with carvana was and still is very good. I wanted to sell my can a few months ago and Madison was super nice. Undirtunately I had to cancel the sell bc of personal reasons. Now I???m again in the process of selling and Madison is super patient with me and so nice!

I was looking for a lease replacement when out of the blue I was shown this hybrid. I have never owned one before let alone drive one. One starting the ignition is all it took. It's a lot of car for the price. Mileage knocks my socks off. Biggest little vehicle I have ever owned and rock solid.
This is a terrific automobile. My first hybrid, and I absolutely love it! I also love all of the features, such as the automatic rear door lift, the amazingly-fast hyper-defrost, keyless ignition, etc.
Great customer service. My salesman Victor at the Elston location accessed my needs and helped me get the right car for me.
Great car, comfort, and great mileage.

I had a 2013 and loved it. I upgraded with this one got the leather and all upgrades. It's awesome. Has great pick up for a small utility vehicle and I average 42 to 44 MPH. My large dog fits in the rear with seats down and loves it. Takes the roads and mountains very well. Couldn't ask for better car for its price. Kudos to Ford. No split rear window like the Prius has.
My cousin and I visited Hyundai on 11/28/18 to trade in her money pit Cadillac. Dee Zavala was so helpful that she talked me into trading my 2011 Sonata . I can't express how great she and the staff were, especially since we didn't have the best credit. They made it happen for my cousin and I. I walked out with a 2018 Hyundai Sonata SEL and my cousin a 2018 Elantra loaded. FYI this is my 3rd Sonata from Napleton.
I am looking to buy...

and this is on my short list. The only draw back is it doesn't have AWD, but that is not a deal breaker w/me, my wife wants AWD. I'll be buying for me, to pass on to her when my driving days have passed. So her approval is important. About handling, it is wonderful and fast, rides like a much larger car. It is easy to enter, both front and back,and has plenty of trunk space, if you stay away from the "Energi" model.
When me and my wife entered martin nissan , you can feel that this dealership is different from the others they treat you not as a customer but as part of there family no pressure selling at all , then enters the most amazing man Mr.Tom Pazienza a great sales executive with the heart for the customer because he cares and listen to what the customer wants thats why , I didnt hesitate to get my dream car the 2018 Nissan Maxima SL . and you can see this guy has everything a customer want service with the heart . So if you visit Martin Nissan Look for Mr. Tom Pazienza , because you I and my wife can guarantee that you gonna be one very sattisfied customer 10 . And special thanks to there finance guy fred very nice and excellent in explaining all the details of the contract to us. jack and marichu
Most stylish & reliable car I've owned!

This car is awesome! The inside is everything I wanted looking for a used car at a reasonable price range. It's an awesome gas saver & super stylish
Great customer service! They are super friendly and helpful. That's the 5th time I buy/lease a car with Darwin P. Linsangan at Golf Mill Ford and I wouldn't go any place else!

This car is compact, yet very roomy inside. Very good fit and finish. It has a lot of power compared to the 2010 Prius I use to own. The car handles very well and big improvement in the viewing area, with wide viewing angles in the front. No obstructing pillars as in the Prius that often blocked my vision to pedestrians.
The side mirrors have a smaller viewing mirror that enables you to see your blind spots. Simple and effective. The gas millage is good, averaging 42.5. Not as good as the Prius, which got 50 MPGs in the summer, but would drop down to 40 MPGs in the winter.
The interior quality of materials is very good, and the seats have lumbar support. Very happy with the car so far.
This is the second vehicle purchasing from Golf Mill Ford and the service was excellent. Darwin was amazing and he was able to find an excellent deal for my mother, Darwin is very friendly, easy to speak and honest. Thank You Darwin.
Great little vehicle
by Canan from

I wanted a small, economical commuter vehicle. Nothing flashy, nothing that will signal to the world about the driver's insecurities and neurosis'... Just something that will reliably bring me from point a to b in a safe and extremely comfortable.
I checked in and they quoted me a price and stated it should not take over 1 hour in the half. So I stayed and waited for the service to be completed.

This car meets all of our needs. It is fantastic on gas we get over 4mpg and are very happy with it! Even though we have two cars and a truck, this is the car we use most often..My wife is short and love
The fact that the seat moves high enough for her to see to drive.
