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!!!!
This is perfect for families, camping, beach, taking dogs, sports teams, grandparents. It does it all. We've owned 3, and I would buy a 4th. We still own the first '09, the other two were company cars on a lease. My '09 has been the most comfortable and smooth of all the years' models we've owned. the '13 we have now has a much stiffer ride. This '13 will be turned in for a '16. At 75,000 the recycled-air trap door behind the glove compartment has begun to click (found the fix online, easy to do) and the rear passenger door (curbside door that is used all the time) electric lock/door handle is acting up. Those are the only issues I've had in 7 years.
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!
