2009 Ford Flex Limited: Barely Showing Its Age

January 12, 2010

Last week I showed you the wear and tear on our M3's seatback bolsters. At the time the car had less than 15,000 miles. Certainly the seat in our Flex doesn't have a big bolster to rub every time you get in or out, but the fact that it shows very little wear is impressive at 44,500 or so miles.

More examples after the jump.

This is what the bumper guard and rear hatch area -- places where cargo is drug in and out of the vehicle -- look like after being cleaned up this morning. There's genuinely nothing to whine about here. There are a few nicks on the plastic panels inside but nothing major.

Even here, on the door sill, there are few scuffs. Ford has endowed the Flex with durable interior materials and it shows.
