Dennis C. Boytim 5pts I live in northern Ohio and I am leasing a 2013 Ford C-Max and get only 34-36 MPG. I have over 3,000 miles on the car. When I complained to the dealership about the poor (compared to Ford's claims) MPG after driving over 1,000 miles, I was told that it should improve after the engine has 2,000 to 3,000 miles. However, although I got about 37 MPG when I first leased the car, after putting 3,000 miles on the engine, the MPG actually got WORSE--I now get 34 to 35 MPG for combined driving--I get the same MPG whether I am driving in the city or driving exclusively on the highway. That is, I get the same poor gas mileage (34-35 MPG) in town driving and highway driving. I tried all types of driving--under the speed limit; slow, careful accelerations; 35 mph, 55 mpr, or 65 mpr, etc. and I always get the same poor gas mileage. I contacted Ford Motor Company and complained about the poor gas mileage. The Ford rep. told me to contact the service dept. of a Ford dealership so they could check the engine to make sure that there was nothing wrong. I then took it to the Ford service dept. They checked the engine with their equipment and I was told that everything was fine,,,i.e., there was nothing wrong that could cause the car to get poor gas mileage. I am very dissatisfied with this C-Max. I over paid for this hybrid car (i.e.,it is way over-priced) because of the deceptive MPG claims (47/47) by Ford Motor Company. I asked the dealer if I could get out of the lease because of Ford's deception and the poor MPG. I was told that there was nothing that could be done--I would have to "buy out" the lease to unload the car. I hope I have the opportunity to join in on a class-action suit against Ford.
