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!!!!
Bought this car after selling a Nissan Xterra. It was a big change - the Flex is almost like a luxury car on the inside. I normally wouldn't want so many features (things to go wrong), but I needed something bigger on the inside and still AWD/4WD; this fit the bill. Got a semi-high milage car, due to budget constraints, and it does show its age, but not terribly. If I bought another one, I would want one 2013 or newer that has independent camshaft timing for better gas milage.
Everyone looking for a roomy, sporty, powerful, and fun to drive SUV needs to give the Ford Flex a test drive. We looked at many different SUV's, many with almost twice the price and our Flex was the clear winner. We decided on the Limited, AWD, with ecoboost engine and it has not disappointed. We live in the foothills and the Flex never loses power on the steepest of hills, wet, slick, snowy weather, not a problem! Room for kids, dogs, friends and luggage, as well as a comfortable spacious interior. Why the Ford Flex is not the best selling 7 passenger SUV is a mystery to me! Give one a test drive today and you will be sold!
