I initially liked the styling of the car. With a large family (6), we needed the space for everyday travel as well as vacations. I refused to get a minivan, and I already had a SUV with a third row, but wasn't impressed with the third row quality or the space left in the trunk when using the third row. This car satisfied all those needs, plus it has the Sync system, comfortable seats, quiet ride, and enough power when needed.
I love my car!!!!
2011 Ford FlexSyntyche Weber - Ripon, CA04/13/2017
I had my doubts about getting a Ford because we have always bought Toyotas and Hondas and they have lasted us well. However I fell in love with the Ford flex, so did my husband. It is one of the best looking cars that I've seen in a long time! I love that there are sunroofs all the way to the back. Low road noise, not sure what those other reviews are talking about that say it's loud, I disagree. Very smooth ride. Extremely comfortable! We travel a lot going down to Disneyland and up Northern California and are always very comfortable on our road trips. We have the titanium package so everything folds down with the push of a button. Even when I have to put the kids in the way back it is very easy. I love my car!!!!
2011 Ford FlexSurf Wagon - Charleston, SC11/16/2012
I analyzed several modes of transportation for my surf trips and taking Grandsons around town. The 2011 SEL Ford Flex met my spec's, the bells and whistles are useful and the quality of construction was very good. Driveability around town & tight spaces takes a cautionary attitude with parking bay approach and exit a concern due to its length (but I knew that from my evaluation prior to purchase). On the interstates and at or above the speed limit it is a great platform; smooth and solid. Added Thule roof racks to the factory installed siderails and a Hitch Tite towing unit for my Thule Bike carrier.
The only critical comment; the shift indicator should be in a heads up display in front of the driver. Having to look down to make sure of your gear selection is a distraction.
