Traded my Expedition for C-Max Hybrid
« on: August 12, 2016, 10:41:57 AM »
Traded a 2009 Expedition (paid for) for a used 2015 Ford C-Max hybrid.  Wrote a check for the difference.  Was mainly keeping the Expedition because of 2-3 times per year hauling needs.  C-Max has half the cargo space, but will try to work around with a top of the car carrier and possibly a hitch cargo carrier.  Feels good to not be driving a 17mpg behemoth.

Felt like this was a good time to get more for my SUV with gas prices low, since if they go up again, I will get less for the SUV.

good work on dropping the SUV ... why such a new car on the other side though?

Wanted the hybrid wagon (has only been out since 2013, I think) and it still has manufacturer's warranty and fairly low miles.  Not quite ready to go for a true beater car since I have to make several long distance trips per year.  This is the first time I've ever bought a used vehicle.  Plan to try to keep this car for at least a decade.  Slowly letting go of my spendypants ways.

I just bought a 2013 C-Max Energi a few months ago after trading in my crossover and love it so far! Definitely adjusting to less trunk space, but I thought the same thing about demand for SUVs being higher than small/electric cars right now. Hope you enjoy yours too!
