2009 Ford Flex: Oregon Day 4, Seagull Approved
December 29, 2008
Want to have some fun at the beach in your 2009 Ford Flex this winter?
Load grandma, grandpa and the kids into all three rows. Don't feel bad about those in the back seats, because all three rows enjoy generous legroom. Despite the flat roofline, the third row sits a bit higher than the second, which in turn sits fractionally higher than the first. Everyone can see out.
Take a couple of slices of stale bread down to the jetty and wait for the seagulls to gather. It won't take long; they know the drill. Roll down the windows a little ways and toss a bit of it out onto the ground. In no time you'll have a couple of dozen new friends.
If you have the multi-panel Vista Roof, toss a few chunks on the roof and all three rows will get a close up lesson in avian flight dynamics and pecking order behavior through the overhead glass.
Before long, certain foreign substances will begin to obscure the view. Head directly to the nearest quarter car wash and rinse thoroughly before it sets.
Or so I've heard.
