Great car with major design flaw!

Vehicle

2009 Ford Flex Limited 4dr Wagon AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)

Review

Most people won't care about this, but there is a design flaw in the Flex. I ordered one and felt the vehicle was ideal for me in most ways. I'm very tall and the headroom and legroom are exceptional. Which is great, except for the fact that a tall person (I'm 6'7") cannot comfortably drive this vehicle! Because it lacks a telescoping steering column, even my long arms are at full extension with no bend at the elbows. This became uncomfortable even during a short drive; during a long trip it would be unbearable.

Best Features

Good execution of Sync technology, much better design and fit/finish than previous Ford products, nice touches like large sunroof and rear refrigerator

Worst Features

Telescopic steering column, please! Also, better engines are required ASAP; the EcoBoost or a good Euro-style diesel would transform this car into something special!
