2009 Ford Flex: The Problem With Rear Seat Captain's Chairs

July 15, 2010


Encountered a slight problem with the Ford Flex yesterday. Needed a vehicle to pick up four people at the airport. Take the Flex right? Wrongo.

You see, once you add four people to the Flex, you're not left with much in the way of cargo room. With no center seat in the second row, that fourth passenger has to sit in the third row.

That leaves one folded seat and the rather small cargo area left for luggage. Think you could fit four suitcases in that cargo area? We took the XC60 instead, worked fine.
