2010 Flex Limited I've owned for 16 months. Great overall, gets tons of compliments on its looks, kids' friends love it. Sync is GREAT, stereo and navigation are superb. I have the second row captains seats, great legroom here. Beware, if you have the second row bench it doesn't move forward ( the captains seats do) so it leaves little legroom in the third row. I don't have Ecoboost, wish I did. Overall, very, very happy.

I'm 6'5" 215lbs.... This vehicle is PERFECT. I'm a "function first" person....I want things to do their job well...appearance is important but function is first. I get 20mpg from a super comfortable, very quiet, spacious machine that can carry 6 people comfortably or converts quickly to a big time cargo hauler. The Flex is kinda 'homely' looking, but its an outstanding machine.

Down size but keep the room with a Flex

I down sized from an Exposition to the Flex but haven't lost anything. Seven passengers ride in comfort. Amazing, but the fold down seats gives as much room as the Expo to move a college student. Easy to get in and exit. Changed from a truck ride to a smooth ride and quiet. We can talk. Doubled the gas mileage to 20 in town and 24+ on Hwy. The AWD will do fine in the snow and ice. This is a great vechicle for family and travel.

Excellent ride for tall guys

I normally do not leave reviews, but I feel like I had to on this vehicle. During a month long car search, I sat in at least 15 SUVs/minivans, drove 4 of them. I'm 6.6" tall and I could not fit in any of them! Very frustrated, I started looking into bigger SUVs such as the Flex. When I drove it, I new right away it was for me. I've owned it for about 2 weeks and love it. Plenty of power that I need, room for more passengers with seats all the way back in the front, lots of room for the golf bags. More importantly, plenty of room for ME! Purhcased the SE model, had enough bells and whistles on it for me. Would like to see more on the road, I can't see why someone would pay more for an Explorer which I also drove and had less room in it. It was nice, but again, why pay more for less? Unless you need the 4WD. Definately check out the FLEX. You won't be dissapointed, especially if your tall looking for a comfortable ride.

I ALMOST DIDN'T EVEN LOOK INSIDE A FLEX AS AT FIRST DIDN'T LIKE THE OUTSIDE SHAPE - BUT ONCE I TOOK AN INSIDE LOOK AND DROVE ONE - I WAS IN LOVE! EASY IN AND OUT, COMFORTABLE SEATS, EASING LOADING & UNLOADING GROCERIES. HAVEN'T HAD THE GRAND KIDS IN IT YET BUT I THINK THEY WILL LOVE IT TO. GAS MILEAGE IS AS PROMISED - AND EVEN BETTER BUT I KEEP IT AROUND 60 MPH!

Bought my Flex Summer of 2009. Over the past 21k its been from Annaplolis to westen NC countless times and on many day trips all over Maryland. The Flex is a fantastic road trip car with a POWERFUL 12 speaker sound system, an above avrage 3.5 V6, great space, and fantastic MPG. Currently we are getting 18.4 in 85% city driving. If more people would give the Flex a try it would be extremely popular. Its a cool minivan with slightly enhanced towing (4,500 lbs compared to the Odysseys 3,500lbs.) I would buy the Flex over and over again its so comfortable and has deicent steering for a large car. The Flex is for you if you have one or two kids, never go off roading, dont tow much or at all, need extra space, or are bored with minivans. Features to get are probily Sony sound, ambient lights, vista roof and if you can afford it Ecoboos although the base engine is far more then aduquate and can spin the tires of the FWD model easily.

After sitting in the 2010 Ford Flex that I purchased, used, I think my words were, "Wow! look at all the room!". After test driving the 2010 Ford Flex that I purchased, I think my words were, "Boy, this vehicle doesn't handle like a seven passenger vehicle." Upon exiting the vehicle and re-looking at it, I think my words were, " This is a little funny looking, but I really like it! It has bells and whistles that I have never had in previous vehicles. Love the Back up Camera!

I did tons of research to find a good replacement for our 2002 GMC Envoy, which was a real lemon. She noticed the Flex but we were afraid to buy American again. But the reliability is good, and there is no better car with the room, 3rd row seat, etc. It's terrifically roomy, and the Limited is absolutely loaded PLUS we got blue with the silver roof which is beautiful. The Microsoft Sync is awesome. I am 6'4" and I am very comfortable, AND I kid you not, the Flex is quieter than my Jaguar. Best car we have owned. Period. 22,000 miles and no problems at all. great technology.

After out-growing our Pathfinder, I did a LOT of research for a replacement. Came real close to buying a Traverse. Then, on a whim, I test drove the Flex. I was blown away by the ride, comfort, and features. My skeptical wife was too. It's been a year and 14,000 miles now and we LOVE this car. Driving 70 mph on I-5 or the 101 and getting 26 mpg! Our Pathfinder got 17. Our kids love the headrest DVDs and we love the quibbling they prevent. The ONLY regret (by me, not my wife) is not getting the Ecoboost. Maybe next time...if there is one. However, for 90% of the people out there, the standard motor is plenty powerful.
