Great alternative to a minivan
By Husband with kids on
2010 Ford Flex SEL 4dr Wagon (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
We had to replace our Quest minivan due to a nice lady plowing into the back of it and were set to get another van when we noticed the Flex on-line. After driving a limited, I was impressed at all the features but not the price or the ride (those 20 inch hoops look great but you feel every bump in the road). We priced out an SEL with the 207 option package that gives you leather, power lift gate, Snyc, power memory seats and pedals, and a bunch of other goodies. We also got the tow package and power fold seats which are great but when you have a child seat strapped in, that feature is pretty useless. $200 over invoice before rebates. A great vehicle overall.
Sync and integrated blue tooth phone voice commands are cool. Ride is smooth and quiet with the 18" stock rims (noticable change for the 20" rims). V6 has plenty of power to get a fully loaded vehicle on the highway quickly while maintaining decent milage. Very comfortable seats!
Love all the cool features but WAYYYY to many buttons. Never had to read the manual with a car before but you'll have to to get the most out of all the features hidden in the Sync system.
