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

Review

The week after we bought our solid silver Flex we took a 4,000 mile road trip. Had many chances to check fuel economy with the cruise control on and came up with these numbers: 80 mph - 23 mpg; 70 mph - 24 mpg; 60 mph - 28+ mpg. Very pleased! The ride is really comfortable except (as others have noted) the head rests tilt forward. I experienced the same thing when we test drove an '09 Pilot. I talked my husband into this car - he's 6'3", I'm 5'0" and we both love driving it. Plenty of cargo space (musician hauling keyboards & amps). Can't answer as to reliability yet, but this replaces our '99 Explorer that had 175k miles on it. I don't expect anything less from the Flex

Favorite Features

Luxury interior feel, fold-flat 2nd & 3rd row seats, mileage for large vehicle, SYNC

Suggested Improvements

Head-rest setup is to prevent whiplash, but I see that others are doing what I do - raising the headrest, which pretty much defeats the purpose. If the rear cargo area was just 1" wider golf clubs would lay flat behind the 3rd row. Right now mine just fit, but hubby has to take woods out of the bag
