2009 Ford Flex Long Term Road Test

2009 Ford Flex Limited: Tour of a Dirty Flex Part II

October 21, 2010


Yesterday we had a look at some of the Flex's not-so-finer points in the midst of a few weeks without being washed. But a closer look reveals some respectable details -- like the front seats, which despite time and neglect still look pretty darned good.


As a family hauler the Flex tends to accumulate kid accoutrement -- like this Wii game, or yesterday's rotting fruit. Gross.


There's no shortage of adult accoutrement, either. The center console is full of, well, junk. And it's the only part of the Flex I've run across that just doesn't work right. The latch has been broken for more than a year.

It might look a little beat in these photos, but I still find myself drawn to its utility and the genuine ease of use and high functionality of SYNC.
