2009 Ford Flex Long Term Road Test

2009 Ford Flex: Fits Even More Stuff

June 07, 2010


It's Sunday evening. My wife asks me if we can go buy some house plants at Home Depot and then head over to Target. Sure, dear, it's not like there's a NBA Finals game on or anything. Good thing I have a DVR. And good thing I had the Flex; she neglected to mention she was planning on buying a towering Kentia palm.


I was planning on just shoving the thing in horizontally and dealing with the resulting mess. But then my wife, being smarter than I, suggested wedging the pot at an angle into the Flex's rear cargo well.


It worked great. Yes, you too can live the domesticated dream with your Ford Flex, nifty house plants and multiple packs of Pampers.


My daughter liked the drive home, though. 'Daddy, I'm in a forest!'
