The 2013 Ford Flex is not your typical 7-passenger family vehicle. Its long and boxy silhouette is reminiscent of the big station wagons of the 1960s and 1970s. Striking and stylish as w...

Ford flex: my car is white with a black roof. It is the sel edition.

I have had this car since 2013. I have had to change the battery four times, luckily it is always been under warranty and I have never had to pay. But obviously there’s a defect in the batteries that Ford carries. The high performance tires on the car are absolutely horrible. I have to change tires yearly it seems. I have tried multiple brands but they are all the same. I cannot change the type of tire because this is the only one this car can have. It performs very well, I love the look of the car, inside is luxurious. I get comments about how nice it is inside. I also love the navigation, Bluetooth, voice command and the parking assist. One other issue I have had with the car is I love the tailgate.

It is not a matter of if the door sensors will go out. It is a problem of when.

The only problem with the 2013 flex is that the door ajar light malfunctions and then the interior lights will not cut off. This eventually kills the battery unless you fix or have it fixed. To have it fixed costs around 450 to 600 dollars for each door. I have found that this is also a problem with most Ford 2013 models. Also, if an oxygen sensor goes out causing the check engine light to come on, the resulting gas mileage will drop down to around 15 mpg. Which is ridiculous for a v6. Other than that, I have had no problems with the car. It has plenty of power and is very nice on the inside. The sell model that I have has 4 sunroofs. And leather seats. Overall, except for the door ajar light.

Amazing and wonderful vehicle.

Has been very reliable, comfortable and great on road trips. Plenty of extras including regular electric plug ins for appliances and a number of USB ports, rear climate control making everyone comfortable, ability to fold down both back rows of seat to tote large objects. Drives extremely well. Recently rented a new explorer and was so very happy to get back to my flex. I have long legs to the leg room is terrific and have been told the passengers have plenty of room also.
