I have a 2010 Flex with ecoboost and have very few complaints about our vehicle thus far. It's pretty good on fuel (when you don't put your foot in it, which is almost never) it's an extremely comfortable and versatile car and did I mention it has ecoboost? I'm not a huge fan of the marketing speak Ford used to describe this twin turbo direct injection engine, but this motor deserves every positive word said about it. I've done some light duty towing and the motor feels as though it is never straining. Passing power is where the powerplant shines. My only minor nits to pick would be a couple of trim pieces which have broken and a faulty O2 sensor, which were both under warranty.
- Ecoboost engine
- Ability to tow up to 4500 pounds with sway control
- Park Assist
- Price is a little steep
- Some questionable exterior trim fit and finish
- Roof rack should be made available with the vista roof option (which apparently Ford has done in 2011)
- For the price, other options such as rain sensing wipers and adaptive cruise should be available or standard on the limited and titanium trim levels
