When the Ford C-Max Hybrid rolled out last fall, the Blue Oval made a big deal about the Prius-rivaling 47 mpg rating. Unfortunately for Ford, real world driving results were nowhere near Ford’s mpg claims, launching both lawsuits and a Federal investigation. The end result cost the C-Max 4 mpg, and Ford millions of dollars in restitution payments.
There’s a bit of trouble in paradise over the real-world fuel economy of the Ford C-Max Hybrid and 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid, which are delivering less-than-expected mpg numbers for many consumers.
