Focus C-MAX 1.6 TdCI - opinions

Hi,
after focus station ghia (the first model) I steped in an renault megane 1.9 dci and after 15 months and 70 kkm I decided to switch back in to the ford,
this time in 1,6 tdci C-MAX (Ghia) manual transmission, expectet somwhere in may.
I'm looking for any opinions from drivers. I've found some bad news about the CVT transmission but not much of other opinions.
Regards Darek

Hi in an German forum about Foci and C-Max I found a lot of bad experiences some owners have. That goes up to two new engines while the first 16,000 km. But that is for the C-Max build in Europe. They have also reported squeezing and rattle noises from the doors and dashboard, probs with other things...
for those who can read German: C-Max 1,6tdci Trend, 17500 km
