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!
Been driving my 2010 Flex for over a month now and can't say enough about it. Great quiet ride, Plenty of power without eco boost. Rock solid mileage 20-24 per tankful and just enough retro look to make it cool. Just need a surfboard for the beach crowd.... Really, I had a Suburban, Chrysler MiniVan and this is better than both, although not quite the space of the van, its more fun to drive for sure. I'm a big guy, 6-5, 250 and I love the room...
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.
Great vehicle!!!! Love the styling like no other vehicle out there. Can't understand why Ford does not sell more of these.
Great minivan alternative
Replaced caravan with the flex. Had nothing but little problems with the 2006 caravan (only 60k miles when sold) and the flex has not given a single problem. Plenty of room, better real world gas milage by about 3 miles a gallon overall. Will not look back.
Bertter than a minivan
This car has all the versatility of a minivan in a much more stylish package. The interior quality of my SEL with leather is right up there with my Lincoln Continental. I am very pleased with my decision to purchase a 2010 Ford Flex SEL.
Well overall grading in the Flex is preatty good. The only low score I gave it was for the performance. It has a slow pick up and go and the shifting seems to sharp that you actually feel when the shifting is done. The interior with the full leather is supper nice and comfortable and the Sirius system is great. It's overall great vehicle for families and enough space for every day needs. If looking for the alternative of big gas gusler this is the one good gas milage 21 mpg currently.
I'm a believer
We recently bought a 2010 Ford Flex and love it. I was initially hesitant, wanting to go with a newer Explorer, but it was for my wife and she loved the Flex. I'm glad we got it. While the styling is a little boxy, it handles like a race car. The acceleration is immediate and it turns on a dime. The interior is incredibly flexible - we have two teens and three dogs and it fits everyone comfortably. It gets around 20 on the highway, 17-18 mpg in town. I would highly recommend it to those considering a mid-size SUV.
great car for big guys
This Ford Flex Limited is the ONLY car made now that I can get in comfortable and not hit my head and have leg and foot room to drive. I'm 6'4", 290 lbs,m 15 shoes. Bought used at a good price and absolutely love it. My other vehgicle is a Silverado that I love too !
Practically Perfect in Every Way!
Traded in my super sleek Lexus sport sedan (that I really loved) for the Ford Flex Limited and never looked back! I thought I'd never give up a luxury brand vehicle but Flex proved to be equally amazing. The Flex is almost as luxurious as the Lexus and very classy. It has tons of room like a mini van (without having to drive a mini van), feels sturdy like a full sized SUV (without the excessive bulk), and gets the same gas mileage as most V6 sedans! The Sync sytem beats all other GPS systems hands down! I could go on forever about the Fex but bottom line is it's amazing and everyone loves it!!
