2009 Ford Flex: Broken Interior Trim

July 02, 2009

Suddenly the interior of our long-term 2009 Ford Flex is showing some age. The small chrome latch on the center console is broken (actually it's about the fall off) and will no longer grab hold and secure the console lid. Funny, the same thing has happened to our long-term Mazda 6.

And that's not all.

The lower seat trim has also come off and won't snap back in. I'll have to mess with it over the weekend.

Both of these items should not be broken after just 26,000 miles, but we should all keep in mind that they are also high use touch points. That console release is in constant use and that seat trim gets kicked everytime the driver climbs in and out of the Flex.

We'll get the console fixed when the Flex goes in for its next scheduled service. The seat trim too if I'm too much of monkey to snap it back in place.
