2009 Ford Flex Limited 4dr Wagon AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


My wife and I drove numerous cars before deciding to purchase our 1st and last Ford vehicle. At first it seemed to be the answer to all of our needs. We purchased this car new in NOV 08. Within 6mnths,we had to take the car in to have the "sync" systems wiring harness replaced 4 times and the touch screen once! Within 16k miles (2 years) we had to replace the front rotors and brakes. And now just 11 months and 10k miles later, we now need to replace the front rotors again, the rear brakes and the rear rotors! Ford Corporate was of no help for this non-warranty item stating "normal/routine maintenance". Not to mention the horrible screeching sound that comes from the brakes, also "normal"

Best Features

The amont of space in the 2nd row. The refrigerated rear center console. The vista roof.

Worst Features

better customer service, better quality parts under the hood and under the car, brakes, rotors etc. In addition to the problems with the brakes..the car also is showing signs of transmission problems now as well. We will never buy a Ford again.
