2009 Ford Flex: An Ideal Location For Reusable Bags

June 01, 2010


The more I drive our long-term Ford Flex the more I've come to appreciate the space behind the Flex's third-row seats. To keep grocery bags from spilling their contents in most cars' trunks you need to either use one of those stretchable cargo nets (which never work very well) or buy some sort of cargo management accessory.

But the Flex's deep well behind the seats is ideal for grocery bags, especially the reusable kind. You can line up about five of them, no problem, and they all sit nice and snug. I will point out that minivans typically have this feature, too, so it's hardly an exclusive. But I like the shape and depth of the Flex's space a little more. Along with the power-operated tailgate, it just makes grocery shopping that much easier.
