2009 Ford Flex: Third-Row Seat

November 03, 2008


When not in use, the 2009 Ford Flex's 50/50-split third-row seat folds flat and stores in a fairly deep rear well. When the rear seats are raised, the well is exposed. It's perfect for securing grocery bags, especially if you're using the reusable kind.

A low-production-value video of me raising the third-row seat and operating the power liftgate follows after the jump. Why bother watching Marina's HotForWords on YouTube when you can watch this instead?

The power liftgate is one of the quicker opening units I've encountered recently. Plus, for the opening process, you don't have to wait for any beeping delay; press the button and it goes. Closing the liftgate does take longer, though.
