Vehicle2011 Ford Flex SE 4dr Wagon (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
ReviewI decided to trade in my 2004 Jaguar XJ8. I went looking for an affordable crossover with comfort,room,standard features, and gas mileage. I have never owned a Ford. After driving the Flex I was sold instantly. It is comfortable, roomy,quiet,and great mileage. The list price was 32,000 but I was able to get it for 24,000. The options include second row club seats, sync, roof rails, and and tow package.
Best FeaturesI really enjoy using the sync. The third row will actually hold two adults comfortably. I really like the fold flat second and third row seats. My Flex didnt have a second row console but I was able to order the same console that is used in the Taurus X crossover. It is available from Ford as an accessory. It fits identical to the Flex console. It installs in about ten minutes. It was $ 230.00. Flex doesn't offer a console unless you buy all the parts to assemble it for over $ 700.00.
Worst FeaturesI am completely satisfied with my Flex. I couldn't find any other vehicle come close to what Flex offers as standard equipment for such a great price.

We are looking into either getting a Flex or Chevy Acadia/Traveres and trading in our Jeep Mountain. We really love our Jeep, but the gas mileage and backseat space is horrid. Anyhow, I was wondering...how were you able to negotiate the price down? Just hoping you can share :)Report it
