Through BB&L rental in Hoofddorp, the Netherlands, I rented the C-Max from 21/09-09 til 30/09-09. Since I drive a 2002 Ford Taurus SES, it was an easy choice. And the car was equipped with the desired, Automatic shift, GPS and AC. Most impressive was the engine performance with 4 cyl., since my Taurus has 6cyl. The car was a joy to handle and drive on Hollands narrow roads. This in comparison to roads in the US. Very pleased with the frugal gas consumption. To sum it up, I can’t wait to purchase this vehicle when it’s imported into the US in 2011. Wish I didn’t have to wait that long. Best regards.
