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.
it is a excellent station wagonvery good city and highway car plus mileage 20 tu 24 plus it is seven passenger
Happy Flex owner- I love this car and the features
Pros: The Sync system, no gas cap needed and hearing cell calls over my speakers!!
Cons: No where to put my purse when I have a passenger. Wish back cargo window opened to quickly put in small items. Would have preferred 7 passenger instead of the 6 passenger. Obviously nothing major that I don't like about this car!I've had my Flex for just over a year after owning 3 Expeditions. Love the size and modern features, memory seats, steering wheel controls, roomy feel, better gas mileage, etc. It has more headroom than the Expedition. We opted for 6 captains chairs and I do miss the bench in the middle when I have a carload of kids. It's like driving a luxury car, but easier to maneuver than a bulky utility vehicle and saves on gas.
Pros: Interior room
Cons: steering wheel mobility - sync system
Advice: buy itThis model ranks with my last full size wagon A 67 country squire, but with all the modern tech and safety equipment. It was excellent on my recent 2800 trip to Florida and back. with gas mileage exceeding 26mpg at normal speed limits. Great addition to the Ford line.
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.
