Lots of good things, high costs for better model.

The Flex is an amazing mid-size SUV, wagon or van depending on who you ask. While it may not get the best MPG, the vehicle is responsive, quick (even on the non-ecoboost) and fun to drive. The styling is definitely it's strong suit, both in being unique inside and out but by also being very practical. Everything is setup in a very natural way, if you use select-shift it's very easy to work with and for two people above 6 feet there's plenty of room in front two row seating. My biggest concern for any potential buyers is the value. I would absolutely recommend a Flex to anyone due to it being very safe and fun but if you want it with more capability or with more features the vehicle can easily get into the higher $20k's and into the $30k's. I definitely recommend the EcoBoost, at the cost of a couple MPG it becomes a very sporty vehicle, but it's only an option on higher trims. 2013 got the updated front-end but I recommend newer years with a newer Sync system that'll support Android Auto/Apple CarPlay. Last thing is to watch out for is EcoBoosts with bad service records and Flex's without their water pump replaced at some point. Both are known to go bad if a previous owner didn't keep up with maintenance.


Cheep luxury with lots of room

Smooth comfortable and good value. Easy to use infotainment. Decent fuel economy for size. Roomy but handles very well. Love the retro styling. Enough torque to tow for my needs.


Practical, cool, slick ride

Great for family with multiple children, plenty of power and shines up really nice. Feel comfortable driving it anywhere. I’ve never been a FORD guy but I think we got a good one here.


Great riding car

This car ride is very smooth and runs very quiet. It is a joy to drive. I would highly recommend this vehicle to friends and family.


Spacious and beautiful!

Love all the room up front for passenger and driver and all the room in the back for passengers as well. My family of six has plenty of room. Stylish and doesn't look like a van but has the space of one.


Fix or repair daily

I've had nothing but car issues and repairs since I purchased my 2013 Flex from Ford only two months ago. Bad decision not adding bumper to bumper warranty.


We traded in a 2005 - BIG difference!

In excellent condition. It is very comfortable to ride, nice to drive, and beautiful outside. We enjoy being in it. Pretty upholstery. Plenty of room inside. Thanks to this dealer.


I loved my Flex so much I bought a new one!

This is the best car I ever owned. So much room. Made taking long trips a pleasure. When it was stolen the only thing I could do after I quit crying was to go out and buy a brand new one! I keep telling people, go test drive one and you will be sold!


Nice for used

Great "mom" vehicle. Lots of room for kids and groceries. Even oldest kid drove loved the way it handled. Nice style and comfortable interior! !!!


Love my Ford Flex!

Ford Flex met all my needs. Love the comfort and style plus all the extra perks. Fits my family and our busy lifestyle. Totally recommend!
