2009 Ford Flex Long Term Road Test

2009 Ford Flex: Hot Bath

September 27, 2010


Our 2009 Ford Flex was looking a little grubby, so I took it to our regular car wash late this morning and asked them to give it a thorough scrub-up.

I'm sure you've already heard all the whining from the West Coast during the past few days about our unusually hot weather, but I when I saw the Flex's ambient temperature gauge was reporting over 100 degrees in Santa Monica, I felt bad for the guys detailing the Flex.


Working on the black interior of a black car on what is likely the hottest day of the year is a total drag.

I tipped them double and quickly scurried back to my air-conditioned office.
