2009 Ford Flex Long Term Road Test

2009 Ford Flex Limited: Slide, Baby, Slide

April 22, 2010


Magrath posed this question a while back and had me mock up our Flex with a sliding door. The Photochop isn't perfect, I know - the rear seat perspective is off - but you get the idea. The doors on the Flex are pretty wide, and in a city where nine out of ten parking spots are marked 'Compact,' my passengers have been limited to the narrowest of body types. Pop on this slick slider and maybe I can have more rotund friends.

What do you think? Too much like a minivan, or should I have at it with my 211-piece Craftsman Mechanics tool set (laser-etched, of course)?
