Iam purchasing a B.Max this week, its a 1.5 TDCI Tiatanium Navigator ,5 door ( 2017 ).
It has 11,000 miles on the clock.
Low mileage as the car has been a Mobility car.
Is there anything i need to know/watch out for on this model.

the diesel cars tend to need a good run occasionally, helps them 'regenerate' the particulate filter.
this is equally important on a car that normally only does short journeys.

Thanks I have just read the AA report.
Looks like i will have to go out for more joy rides, I have some fast A roads not far away, but the nearest motorway is 25 miles away.
Iam selling my Dacia Sandero Stepway, only three years old, and was looking to up grade to the new model but there is a nine month waiting time for new cars.
The dealer gave me more for part exchange than I paid for my Dacia three years ago.
So I think I have a very good deal on a low milage B.Max

I have got my car now, well Pleased, I had to phone the dealer after getting home.
the tyre pressure warning light came on.. Checked the tyres at the local air pump, all ok.
Handbook not very helpfull, all it says is
press the ok button.
dealer got a mechanic to phone me and talked me through the settings menu, Now all OK.
on B Max specification it says Vented disks on the front and disks on the rear.
but I have drums on the rear did Ford change the specification.
