Back when I got the mazda5 I took some pictures of me demonstrating the cargo space. I've tried to recreate that with the c-max. the results )

I want to write this now while I'm still upset so hopefully I can read back on this and laugh.

I gravely miscalculated how much cargo space I'm giving up. Not just all the little cubbies that the m5 had (Where I had the fire extinguisher and the first aid kit) but the fact that the read door slopes inward, such that even thought the measurement to the back of the seat is almost the same, the drum space is greatly reduced.

Now, I don't know if my future contains a car packed with drums very often, but this realization started to make me cry. So yeah, regret already.

Oh yeah, I bought the c-max.

We couldn't come to a deal, because my mazda5 is apparently worth 2.5k less than I thought it would be and 1k less than what would have made the deal work.

So looking like no car for me. I'm trying a few places to get a few different offers.

I would be scared to sell the car on craigslist for a number of reasons.

And I'm coming to the realization that they are not wrong. The stupid hood damage the 2nd year of owning the car I think is affecting the price more than I realized. The exhaust leak I knew about, but thought it was factored in to the price adjustment for car condition, but apparently not at this dealer.

On a good note, I liked the dealer and they treated me with respect. So thumbs up for my short experience with Wall Ford in Salisbury.

So looks like I have to get some quotes on getting my car fixed and I'll be driving it for another few years.
