After our second child and a need for our second car seat, it was obvious we needed a larger family ride that would afford us all of the luxury, newest technical gadgetry and efficiency. After comparing several mid to full size SUF's and minivans (which my wife refused to consider) the obvious choice was the 09 Ford Flex. It has by far the best voice recognition system available, and an awesome 12 speaker sony sound system. With amenities such as supple leather seats, Sirius satellite radio, enough cargo space (when the third row is down) to carry a double stroller and 12 bags of groceries, fuel eficiency (compared to other 7 seater suv's) and eye popping looks, this is an awesome ride.
The Sync voice command system is awesome. It was easy to set up all three of our cell phones (up to 12 can be linked) to the system and it even downloads your address book. The speaker phone is wonderful. The hidden touchpad keyless entry is awesome too.
My only wish is that the rear moon roofs opened up like the front moon / sun roof. Im sure its that way for a reason (structural support etc.)
