Best By Far

2009 Ford Flex SEL 4dr Wagon (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
We bought the Flex after our Dodge Nitro was returned as a lemon. The Flex, which cost us about 3k more than the Nitro, is so much nicer I cannot put it into words. The ride is ultra quiet and interior feels very upscale. We test drove the Acadia, Traverse, Pilot and Highlander and the Flex stood out. Gas mileage on an all highway trip was 26mpg+. Averaging 19+ around town. Telescoping steering wheel would have been nice, but I can adjust the seat to accomodate (6'2"). 2nd row is huge. Love this car, I would definitely recommend.
Power Lift Gate, Sync, 3rd row seats flip backwards so you can tailgate/watch drive in movies, etc. and relax. Smooth ride. Sony stereo is very good for factory stereo. Interior Materials. Two-Tone Roof. Tons of headroom....TONS.
Telescoping steering wheel. The Eco- Boost engine (2010?) will make it a really big, really fun car.
