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!
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.
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.
