Car has a great ride even on long distance trips. 2nd row seating has enough leg room as the front row. Priceless. City/Hwy average 19-22 depends on how much city driving you do. Highway I can get 26mpg or a bit better if I keep it under 80mph. I'll be buying another one of these
We bought our Flex used with 76,000 miles on it. It had obviously been well cared for. We drove it and were surprised by how well it handled for such a large vehicle. All 4 of us in the family are comfortable in the Flex and we have plenty of room and decent economy (again, considering the size). We also talked to people who owned or had owned a Flex and they all said they loved the vehicle. Haven’t owned it long but so far we are enjoying it.
I bought my Flex from a dealer. I put 100000 +miles on it over a five year period. no problems. Did all routine sevice at dealer. At about 110000, turbos blew. Replaced turbos with factory parts. Boom, blown turbos, blown engine. Blue book on this super loaded auto excellent condition 14k After engine blows lucky to get 2k at auction. Bummed! I loved that car but it sure took my pocket book for a ride. I don't know if this is a common problem or if I just had bad luck. I've heard that there are problems with the ecboost in general.
