My Wife's vehicle
Pros: I Like the style
Cons: The noise from motor and underbody on High Ways.Head rest puts a lot of pressure to my neck during long rides. Lack of power (for that power, fuel efficency is not as good as I thought or viceversa). Trim materials look ship. Sync system picks always the wrong spelled phone number. Price of the vehicle is not low. Other than that, is my wife's vehicle and she feels ok withn it, so, let her be.
Pros: decent fuel mileage
Cons: rough riding off roadgood servicable vehicle
Best Family Vehicle Ever
Pros: Looks cool
Cons: wind noiseBetter than driving a mini van.
exelent quality vehicle
Pros: fold down rear seats makes room for my english mastiff to just walk in and lay down.
Cons: ?93000 miles and going strong. Cooper tires seem to be the quietest and longest wearing tires for this vehicle.
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.
Good vehicle and reliable.Car has been very versitile.
Cons: Noisey InteriorHad a 2004 went up to a 2008 Escape 2.3 automatic. We love it and fuel economy is wonderful. No air on and the vehicle will get 28 MPG with air 22.6 average. It does lack the power but using the transmission you can move out as quick as you want. Kind of noisey on the inside as result of all the plastic and carbon fiber. Great sound system and we love the Sat Radio. Solid vehicle, handles well and very comfortable to drive.
