Welcome to Ford B-Max Owners Club

Welcome to the Ford B-Max owners club and Ford B-Max Forum. On its global debut, the Ford B-MAX made an immediate impact with its unique new door concept. The car's key innovation is the introduction of twin rear sliding doors, which means unmatched ease and flexibility.

Eliminating the central door pillars has rarely translated from concept car to production. Not in this case however, and the result is an uninterrupted access of over 1.5 metres wide.

The sense of space is enhanced by the sculpted cabin, well-equipped cockpit and full-length panoramic roof. Powered by the ultra-low-CO2 Ford EcoBoost petrol engine with Ford Auto-Start-Stop, the B-Max delivers outstanding fuel efficiency and was launched in 2012.

The Ford B-Max forums are now open so you can begin discussing the new Ford, available options, test drives and ordering information will all be posted there so please feel free to join and post your questions and between us all we should be able to help!

Ford unveils the connected, accessible B-Max at Mobile World Congress

Mobile World Congress in Barcelona normally tends to yield a bumper crop of smartphones, tablets, and the egregiously-named “phablets”, but Ford has chosen the technology show to announce that it’s bringing the B-Max to Europe. The car was originally unveiled at the 2011 Geneva motor show as a concept, but it’s now getting a full release, packed with a surprising amount […]

IS B-MAX THE NEW BLACK? FASHION, FURNITURE, GADGETS INSPIRE NEW FORD SMALL CAR’S COLOURS

At meetings you could make tests. Is there anyone near you with a B-MAX? ...

USB Music

Tried that after adding a playlist to the stick and did what you said but when browsing there were no playlists available. The folder was there ok when browsing and selected it. Whilst it was playing a track I selected options and checked playlists to play random but that did not work either. I had already contacted the dealer and all they said it might be the stick but that is a load of crap. Strikes me unless I get an Ipod or something similar I can't see it working. ...

Wing Mirror Explosion!

I think you must try to pursue the wash owners first. However, most have a 'Get out' clause which says you wash at your risk.Having done that you need to be able to prove to some extent that the wash was satisfactory and the owner has not had complaints. A letter to that effect would be helpful.Then approach the dealer with or without the letter and ask for an 'under warranty' repair of a defective part. The dealer should be helpful if you go cap in hand rather than shouting the ...
