Cons: "Poor mileage performance, especially the plug-in"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 3

"The mileage for this vehicle was advertised at comparable to the Prius V. Not even close. In fact Ford just came out with an amended mileage sticker reducing the delivered milage from 100/43 down to 88/38. With a $10,000 premium for the Energy, this is totally a waste of hard earned money. Should you drive 25 mph, then you may get reasonably close to this reduced mileage claim, but if you drive at posted limits or heaven forbid, you fudge by 3 or 4 mph, the best mileage will fall below the standard hybrid version. The best highway mpg that I have ever gotten is 29.8 driving on the interstate at posted limits. Around the city, you can expect about 50-55 mpge. Do your homework before buying the C-Max Energy... Or buy a standard Hybrid."
