The Dog Mobile
Pros: My wife thinks its the heated seats
Cons: There is nothing to dislike about this vehicleThe Flex is one great vehicle, we passed on a m/b for this one and we are happy we did.. It rides like a car and handles like a car but has the lots of room.
Best in Class
Pros: Very quiet ride, good interior layout, best technology
Cons: nothingWe're patient buyers and comped the Flex to the Honda Pilot, Acura MDA, Chevy Traverse, Toyota Highlander, Toyota 4Runner, and Hyundai Vera Cruz. All are generally in the same price range, although the safety ratings and rollover resistence on the Flex and Pilot are the best. When we test drove, the Flex outshined the rest in our opinion and the technology in the car was far superior. It's a big vehicle and get's decent gas mileage. Vehicle continues to impress us as we get to know it better.
No complaints at all... Excellent!!
Pros: Smooth ride and performance, incredible power!!Got the Flex EcoBoost with all options except dvd (didn't need that). Have had it a bit over two months. Very, very happy overall, even better than I expected... I cannot think of any complaints. The ride, comfort and performance are just awesome. It handles and feels sporty even though it is a very roomy car.
Pros: I love the looks and comfort
Cons: gas mileage not quite as good as expectedMy overall rating is almost the best. The vehecle is lacking in the gas mileage reported, I get any where fro 13 to 18 depending on how much highway driving I have done. I have yet to take a pure high trip to get the long range milage. This car has great looks I get compliments all the time. It is very comfortable to drive and the little fridge is a plus. I have the the Limited so I have all extras and this vehicle easily matches up with my previous SUV for about 20 grand less.
Pros: I am 6 ft tall and 230 lbs I like cars with more room form the door to the center console and this car has it!
Cons: The vehicle is a little shy on storage compartments.
Advice: Take a test drive the rest sells it self.This vehicle drives and handles as nice as the Cadillac SRX and better the Buick Enclave. You get more vehicle than those 2 and a much better price. The Flex has more head and shoulder room in the front and back and way more leg room in the second row. The cadillac does not have the 7 or 8 passenger options. The Microsoft Sync system out does anything any other car company has for it's nav and location assistance system.
