2010 Ford Flex Limited 3.5 from North America


We love it!


New Car: Nothing has gone wrong.

Old Car: Passenger seat was terribly uncomfortable, drivers seat was a little better. Had noise in wheel bearings that could not be located.

General Comments:

We love the Flex. It is extremely comfortable for driver and passengers. It glides down the road. It handles wonderfully. A lot of storage. The Flex has style and comfort. After having 2 mini-vans, it feels nice to have both. A good compromise between a mini-van and a sedan.

I wish the passenger could set the destination on the navigation system.

I wish the lights could be run on auto during the day.

You can leave the lights on auto at anytime. Maybe you don't have daytime running lights though.

Leave your headlight switch on the Auto setting (with or without the fog lights on), and the lights will come on and off on their own. Even if it's daylight and you turn on the windshield wipers, the lights will come on automatically.

Smooth, roomy, comfort!



General Comments:

This, so far, is one of the best cars I've ever owned.

When this car first came out I thought, UGLY! But when I took this for a test drive I was sold. The exterior grew on me.

So far I haven't had any problems, though one of the doors seems like it doesn't close like the rest of them.

One thing I should mention is that if you have more than 5 people that you plan on hauling (assuming you have the 7 seater), the cargo area behind the third row is almost useless for long trips.

I went tailgating with 6 people including myself (I have a 6-seater) and it got pretty tight. Luckily I have rail bars on the Flex if I get into a pinch.

Other then that no regrets at all, I love the Flex!!

I just have to ask... Why did you bother driving it if you thought it was ugly? I don't tend to have any further interest in a car if I find it unattractive from the start. First impressions are everything after all... Just wondering.

Yes, My wife and I were at the dealership waiting to test drive a Ford Edge. While waiting, we got in a Flex and were really impressed. Then we test drove it, just for fun. We were impressed some more. The impressive ride and interior made the exterior styling not so hurtful on the eyes... to finally loving it, due to its unique look!

Sharp, you can't help but notice it


Plastic rear window moldings cracked (minor and replaced promptly), transmission shifting problem (working on/going in for), missing interior hardware around passenger door handle (minor).

General Comments:

Love the look of the car inside and out. It rides great. I probably would add tilt wheel as an option, I do get a little uncomfortable. I love SYNC.

Uh, no this design is not a good look, one of the ugliest vehicles made. Just terrible, can't even stand to look at it.

I agree with the commentor above me. The Ford Flex is by far the ugliest vehicle ever produced. I'd take a Pontiac Aztek over one of these any day (and those are hideous too).

Big, safe, luxury vehicle for your family


When I purchased the car, there was a small leak in the passenger back tire. This is a known issue from the dealership and they are going to replace the 2 back tires.

Otherwise, nothing is wrong with the car.

General Comments:

This is my dream car.

It's a truck. It's a mini van. It's luxury sedan. No, it's super CUV...

I have purchased the FWD version of this car. There is enough horse power to spin the front tires from a stand still. But the AWD version should allow more power to all wheels, preventing spin and extend your tire life.

This vehicle is a "head turner" and you will get a lot of looks as you drive around town. People have refered to this car as a Mini Cooper on steroids.

The front seats are great and very comfortable for my 5'9" frame carrying my 350 pounds of weight. My wife is 4'8" tall, and she doesn't have any problems handling this car.

I do find that the head rest are a bit "off", is about the only way to put it. I am sure that they are a safety issue, but they seem tilted forward and get my attention. So far, pushing the head rest all the way down to the stops, seems to have solved this for me.

12 speaker sound system is great for me. It will go louder than what I need to. I am no longer a kid that listens to my music at airplane take off decibels.

Make no mistake, I purchased over 5000 pounds of Detroit Steel, OK, in this car is Oakville Ontario Steel, but still, this is a BIG car. I didn't purchase this car to be a menace on the road, I purchased this car to be safe from the menaces that are on the road. Because of the size, this car has some amazing safety numbers. You feel "safe" inside this car.

Regretfully I messed up on the cost of operating the vehicle.

I had assumed that the lower the number, meant that it had a low cost of operating. So I am pretty sure that I messed up that item.

...No, it's called a station wagon, only nobody wants to hear them called that!

I am looking at one of these, do you regret buying it for any reason?

Ummm... it says Distance when acquired was 20,000 and most recent distance was 20,200. That means you have only driven it 200 kilometres. Either your numbers are out of whack or you are easily impressed. I'd say give it at least another 300 kilometres before submitting your report. Ha!
