Three major reasons... First, while the C-Max is flat towable it has issues since it is a hybrid. The 12VDC battery will go flat in a few hours as the car turns on and off electrical components automatically. This can be addressed running a trickle feed and some other work arounds but it is a hassle. The Active Shutters in the grill need to be removed. Plus the warranty issues that can arise. There is much better info on those issues on the C-Max forum
Second, I only keep cars two to three years. The cost of constantly setting up a car to tow would get old...fast!
Third, with the dolly I can load about just about any FWD car. My wife's Fusion is not flat towable so I can use the dolly with it.
It just worked out better to use a dolly when everything was considered.
