2009 Ford Flex Limited: Like an Old Couch
September 03, 2010
Yesterday, Scott blogged that our 2009 Audi A4 Avant was holding up nicely. The seats, he said, looked fresh, 'even the bolsters look new.' And it's true, they do. But that's an Audi Wagon. It goes back and forth from school to shopping plazza to beach to work to home. It's a fancy purse and as such, it's wearing like a fancy purse.
Our 2009 Flex, however is a workhorse. It's not a mining half-wagon, it's all van all the time and we use it.
And still, look at that seat! It doesn't look new because it's got over 60,000 miles of butt on top of it-- it's broken in. The leather feels better than it did when new. Like an old jacket or a comfy leather chair, the Flex just keeps getting better, tougher, more unique as the miles pack on.
It's got witness marks and history on that seat, but not a single tear, pull or inch of faded leather and that's what really counts, right?
