Great family vehicle! Lots of space!

I just bought this vehicle last week, and so far I absolutely love it. My favorite feature is the three row seats, and how the back row seating folds down just by a touch of a button, or it can fold backwards into tailgating mode. We just had a baby, so the how roomy this car is was the main selling point. We live in michigan, so winters are very cold, so the heated seats and auto start features are amazing! It also handles great in the snow. And the dual DVD players in the headrests in the back seats are great for long road trips. The only downside of this vehicle is the gas mileage. It is a bit of a gas hog, roughly getting 18-22 mpg. Other than that I absolutely love this vehicle.

Best car I have ever owned.

No problems. Drives easy, comfortable ride, lots of room for passengers and cargo. Just regular maintenance over the last 6 years I have owned the car. Sets up high enough but not as high as an SUV making it easy to get in and out of, especially for someone that is 5'2". My husband is in a wheelchair and is 6'2" and it is easy for him to get in and out of. We can also carry his portable wheelchair in the back. Good size back gate opening for chair to be taken in and out and still have room for groceries. I hate that they quick making this model. When I need a new car I do not know what I can get that will compare. I have never been more pleased with a car.

Ford focus flex fuel suggestions.

Aside from the recall notice the car is awesome. It fulfills my gas mileage expectancy, it's easy to drive. One thing I do wish that came with the car was a sunroof because I know hatches that have sunroofs. The stereo we have an issue with. Everything says it's in English. It's really in Spanish. I have to speak to it in Spanish and all I know is how to say yes. So that would be cool if that was an easier fix. When the low tire pressure light is on id like it to show what tire or inform us what tire it is.
