This is a great hauler that cleans up and has the luxury for a classy night out. As an avid skier, this AWD Flex has a low center of gravity, a long wheelbase, and a wide track, which all means it is very solid even on icy roads. Perfect for the mountains, the beach, and everything in between with plenty of room for whatever you want to take with you and great comfort for those who go along.
I can't say enough great things about this vehicle. It has great styling and wonderful features, is a very comfortable ride (even for back and third seat passengers) and offers flexibility in seating arrangement and cargo room. For a car its size it still gets decent gas mileage in town and on the highway. It's solid and dependable and I love it all over again every time I drive it. Get lots of questions from other drivers who want to know what it is!
Never thought I would ever drive let alone own a Ford anything. Bought this used. After test driving one with a the turbo engine, I had to have that feature. Roomy, comfortable, stylish, reliable, and very functional family wagon. Not great on gas mileage, but not that bad either (realistic 18mpg avg - AWD, turbo). Backup camera is essential; I wish they had it on the front as well. Opt for all of the bells and whistles, you'll be glad you did. The SYNC function could be better (maybe more frequent software updates) and I'd like to increase the harddrive size (10GB) on the jukebox feature, but at 50K miles with no issues regarding performance or maintenance, it's a great value. I'm quite happy.
