First American Car
By brian numkena on
2009 Ford Flex SE 4dr Wagon (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
This is my first American Car (I bought Nissan and Toyota in past), so I hope the quality is better than my parent's Grand AM (ruined my view of American Cars). The Flex rides smooth, looks nice and manuavers the road well. So far I average about 23 MPG, a disappointment comming from driving a Scion XB at 28 MPG. I bought for more room and safety issues when driving from Arizona to Californa. I have to say it is impressive, but then again I like to buy the base models because I don't want to pay for repairs of the electronics if they break. I hope my Ford Flex lives up to the quality standards Ford has been claiming. If it doesn't then this will be the first and last American car I buy.
Smooth ride, Interior space is plentiful, interior does not look cheap, Lots of cargo space, high off the ground, big enough for my 350 lb body.
The seats needs to be redesigned. Pushes my neck foward to far. Telescope steering is needed.
