I was looking for a car to transport 5 small grandchildren, and wanted something with lots of room but also wanted it to be easy to get kids and car seats in and out. I had decided I wanted a Ford Explorer, but after test driving, I decided even though it had the seatihg capacity, it was too cramped. This Flex is exactly what i needed, and the other thing i like is that it is low to the ground, and i don't have to "hop" in and out. Love my car!
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!!!!
Even though I have been told my Flex looks like a school bus, I love it. It has so much room in it. Even if you have to sit in the third row seating, you have leg room. The floors dip down allowing your feet to go under the seat in front of you. My style has the back up camera which is extremely handy. The blindspot lights also make life easier instead of hitting other cars. I love that the seat hugs you, making you feel comfortable. The adaptive cruise control makes taking a road trip a breeze since the car will speed up or slow down if someone is in front of you.
