Someone I am is waiting for my courage


I am considering buying a c-max hybrid, despite loving my m5, because my m5 has been staring to give me large surprise repair bills and has some issues that I can see causing more bills in the near future. And hey, hybrid!

I test drove one, and it seems decent, though I need the lower level trim because a touch screen in a car seems really badtm to me.

I found a slightly used one (this model year, 9k miles) and was about to haggle the price when I noticed it has been marked as "sale pending." There is another one, but it's 1.5 hours away.

Now I'm at a bit of a loss because I had almost decided to take the plunge (buying a car is not my idea of fun) but the goal went out from under me. A new one would cost 2-3k more, but I could get the color I want and it would be new, but the cheap in me says that's not the right decision.

And yes, I've considered the other hybrids and it's really the C-max SE hybrid or nothing at this point.

I'm also not sure how optimistic to be about the hands free features. They never seem to work for me as well as the product claims.
