2009 Ford Flex Long Term Road Test

2009 Ford Flex Limited: Two-Thirds of the Way to 100K

August 27, 2010


Our trusty 2009 Ford Flex Limited has made it two-thirds of the way to 100,000 miles, and it shows no signs of letting up. At this point, at least, if feels like it's going to breeze right past this mental milestone.

Which is a good thing because we like having it around. It's firmly entrenched as the go-to vehicle for any trip of any length, and it's great around town, too.

But please answer us this: Would you like to keep reading about this one? Do you want to see how it holds up all the way to 100 kilomiles, a true long-term durability test? Or are you tired of reading about it? Would you rather we sold it and used the money to buy something else?

Here's some stats to help you out:

We bought our Flex just over two years ago. Mileage acculmulation has averaged about 32,000 miles per year. Unless someone takes it on an extended sea-to-shining-sea cross-country road trip, as Mike Magrath is threatening to do once more, we figure that September 2011 is the very latest it'll hit 100,000 miles.

Should it stay or should it go?
