2009 Ford Flex: Sunroof Shade Drama Part II

July 07, 2009

Man, some of you people are dense. I was not prying the Flex's sunroof shade up or open with my finger or my Blackberry. That's the size of the gap, I was just using those things to illustrate the scale of its enormity.

By the way, if the ill-fitting sunroof cover doesn't bother you that's fine, but this is at $42,000 vehicle, and for my forty two grand I want stuff to fit right. And trust me when I tell you that this is not the way it should be. I drive hundreds of vehicles a year and the majority of them have sunroofs. And only this Flex and other Fords have this huge space between the shade and the headliner. Every other car company seems to be able to do it the right way. You would never see that kind of low standard in the interior of a Audi for instance, at any price point.

Why is that?
