Best Family Vehicle Ever
Pros: Looks cool
Cons: wind noiseBetter than driving a mini van.
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.
Cons: Outside looksLove this car!!! Why doesn't Ford promote it more?? We hadn't even heard of it until we went in to the showroom to replace our Explorer.
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.
