Used 2009 Ford Flex Limited for Sale
Reviews for 2009 Ford Flex
We were searching for some very specific features on our new vehicle. The Flex was not something we had considered until we checked it out - it had everything we were looking for plus much, much more. We have only had it for a few days, but everything about the car is over the top. Great creature comforts, great ride and really a great looking vehicle.
The Flex is a fun Car
Many of us find different things in cars, from gearheads who love torque and displacement to the soccer parents who love easy in and easy out movement of carloads of kids. The bottom line is that what makes car good will vary from person to person. With that in mind, my review is from the perspective of someone who broke away from the typical SUV to get a really fun station wagon. It sounds so juvenile to recommend a car because it's fun, but that is exactly the feature Ford has bottled successfully with the Flex. It has a great interior with pretty much any amenity you could imagine. The console has options to download music from CDs into Jukebox, to connect mp3 players wirelessly, to play the radio, or to just enjoy the sound of a CD you pop in. I joke with my family that my Flex is really my four-wheeled ipod. The navigation system is great, and far more helpful than the ones we've had in other cars. Sync allows you to talk to the nav system while in motion, which has proven highly beneficial on a few trips. It's a user friendly system that quickly goes from intimidating at first glance to a tool I'm not sure I could do without. The seats are comfortable and the interior is spacious. My 6'7" friend sits comfortably in both the front seats and the middle seats. The car has plenty of get-up-and-go for my style, but I'm not one to try to beat the car next to me off the line. It handles really well while having feel of a large car. The sight lines are great. I was worried coming down from a higher perspective afforded by my previous SUV, but I see better out of the Flex than I did before. I appreciate the gas mileage, which is better than I ever expected from a station wagon. On a couple of occasions I've had all six seats filled, and to my surprise it handled well and people had their space. I've hauled 34 50-pound boxes on a 400-mile trek, and the car performed great, even up a steep 4000-ft elevation change. If I have any complaint about the Flex it's the somewhat flimsy feel of the trim. You can tell it's cheap in some places. I had troubled when my Jukebox option got stuck on a track it couldn't process, and that wreaked havoc on the entire system for a few weeks. That's been the only issue to date. If you're looking for that joy of driving feel you got when you first got your license, this car might just bring it back.
3rd row comfort w anti-minivan style
Easily the most comfortable 3rd row that I drove in it's class. Plenty of space in the back for an adult if need be with easy access. The ride overall is very comfortable and feels safe with a good heavy frame around it. Good to know my family could take a hit and be ok. This was our anti-minivan and we are very happy with our choice
