The Flex Demonstrates What's Possible
By Madlock on


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


Even if the Flex's "love it or hate it" looks don't appeal, its superior fit and finish, material quality, and carefully thoughtful design certainly should. And if its tremendous utility doesn't make a compelling-enough case, it's comfort certainly will. Ford took a chance with the Flex, making tremendous investments in quality throughout, and it shows. Its styling may not suit everyone's taste, but everything else about it should. Ford has engineered the kind of "German" solidity rarely found in American vehicles, and doors close with a rassuring "Shunk!" The Flex simply feels both solid and refined, and the Limited trim meets any reasonable standards for luxury that exist. Kudos to Ford.

Best Features

The Flex's best feature is its overall thoughtfulness. Nothing is frivolous, and the designers took obvious care to ensure nothing was "left out". All 3 rows are perfectly usable. It is simply a very well-designed, well-built vehicle whose comfort equals its other tremendous traits.

Worst Features

A telescoping steering column is perhaps the most notable addition that would benefit the Flex. Otherwise, much else could be added, but very little else could be considered to be "missing", especially with the Limited trim.
