I love the box shape.

I loved my 2002 explorer. It was great on gas, lots of room and traveling in it was perfect. It also lasted me 15yrs. I do not like the new curved look. I was so happy to find the flex with that box look I love. I am very pleased with my flex

I love my Flex

I wanted a Flex when they came out but could t afford one. Now that I have one I know why I wanted one so much.

5.0

Great ride and tech

AWD will be great in the winter, feels very solid. Mine is the non turbocharged but still has plenty of horsepower. It seems like people either love or hate the looks of this wagon shaped crossover suv.
