2009 Ford Flex Long Term Road Test

2009 Ford Flex: Land Bizjet

I had to go to Vegas this week for a quick conference, and as my bizjet G650 was in the shop getting fitted with anti-SAM flares (below), I decided to take our long-term 2009 Ford Flex instead.

The Flex is a terrific road trip car, with a comfortable, controlled ride, and spacious interior. The Navi is excellent, and the Sync and satellite radio keep you from getting too bored.

The only problems I had were a severe shudder in the steering wheel during hard braking from speed due to the warped rotors, and some instability due to some hellacious crosswinds (probably due to the vehicle's large size).

I stayed at The Palms Casino, which was just OK, but the view from Ghostbar is outstanding!

Let's hear about the Flex, and also tell us about your fav Vegas hotel.
