2009 Ford Flex: Seat Comfort Gone Wrong

July 24, 2009


I love our 2009 Ford Flex's wide, cushy captain's chairs.

At least for the first 20 miles.

At that point, the luxury of driving from my couch mysteriously changes to piloting from a bean bag chair. You know, when the styrofoam pellets split to both sides, leaving just a washable vinyl cover between your behind and the hard floor. No amount of adjusting the seat eases that collapsed feeling once its begun.

So as much as I like the Flex's seating at first sit, our love affair only lasts a couple of freeway exits.
