Awesome Famiy Hauler
by STR8 from Tacoma, WA on January 28, 2014
Wow! This car is awesome! I didn't give it an overall rating of five stars due to the fact that we've only had it for a few weeks now and I'm still getting used to it's unique exterior design. Performance is great with the EcoBoost Twin turbo engine and handling is quite agile and smooth considering it's size. All wheel drive is a plus as well. My wife loves the park assist feature and the Ford MY Touch system is awesome so far. The voice command is flawless if given the proper command. Read the owner's manual on this feature and you'll be able to operate your vehicle without touching anything except the steering wheel and the door pulls to enter or exit the vehicle. This vehicle is very driver/passenger friendly. Easy to enter/exit and load your cargo. Ford got it right! We really love the ambient lighting feature and you can change the color to match your mood with just a few touches on that big screen that can be easily reached. Ford and Sony got together and made the fonts larger than the previous yr/model so if you do need to read the screen while driving you can do so with ease. I do think this vehicle was a bit pricey but with all the end of the year rebates and zero percent financing we felt good with what we paid. You couldn't get a European vehicle with this option package under 60k! The Flex feels solid and the materials used on it's interior gives it a feel of real quality. The seats are very comfortable and the second row passengers have the heated seat option as well along with reclining and legroom adjustments. The fridge/freezer is a true friend and we love the power folding third row seat option. Fuel economy is adequate once break-in period is reached. We just don't worry about fuel consumption just as long as we are not refueling twice a week; we were interested in the space and practicality of this vehicle. Our choices prior to this purchase were the Lexus RX, Cadillac SRX, Cadillac CTS wagon and the Flex. We chose the Flex because it had everything we needed. The CTS wagon was just too car-like in every way but the Flex was both car and utility with the extra space. Yay! So, go for a test drive and think "inside" the box, this time, if nothing else it'll make you say, HMM, interesting!
