We were not completely sold on the Flex because of the boxy design. The test drive sold us within the first minute! This car is incredibly comfortable, offers outstanding build and material quality and even with AWD, still delivers a combined mpg of 19. Ford has proven that they can still build a great American car with attributes beyond the foreign offerings. At only 5 days old, someone hit our Flex while my wife was driving, she didn't even feel the impact. She only knew that someone hit her because she saw the other car (a Camry) literally bounce off the Flex. We'd drive through a hurricane in this thing!
Seating, space for our family, traditional "station wagon" design is welcome change over our old Villager minivan. Very comfortable.
After driving it - nothing. At first glance, maybe a sleeker, less boxy front-end. But, don't lose the character of this great car.
