2009 Ford Flex Limited 4dr Wagon AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
We have been driving VW (she) and Audi (he) product for over 10 years now. We had our first baby and needed a lot more room for passengers (Mom & Dad, Grand-Ma & Grand-Pa plus baby),The Flex caught our eye; we loved the styling and pricing. The interior lighting is VERY cool, the seats are VERY comfortable, the cabin is quiet the AC is cold and strong. Have limited AWD with white roof / cinnamon body. I was disappointed to see the overspray of white paint when open rear hatch, no telescopic steering wheel. Overall, we think we will drive this Flex for many years, and will likely purchase another one when the time comes. Vista roof is a must. Cargo area (rear seats folded down) carpet not great
Center console and controls - easy to use. Vista roof is very nice. Navigation with back-up camera is a must. Interchangeable interior lighting accents are fun. LOTS of cup holders and storage - well done! Courtesy lights under exterior mirrors are a life-saver.
Telescopic steering wheel would be an asset. Paint quality control (overspray). Could use accent lighting in rear doors, to see where handles are. Fuel consumption not as good as I thought or expected. Middle row seat latches difficult to release. Middle seat belt does not always release easily.
