Sporty, Reliable, Bells & Whistles of expensive luxury SUV without the cost!
2013 Ford Flex SEL
This car has been absolutely wonderful in performance for me. It has been reliable, never had any problems with not starting, or mechanical issues at all. We had to replace the hydraulic door lift at the rear of the car. It was told to us that if someone forces it closed, it can cause the hydraulic to be damaged. Since I have replaced the hydraulic I have not had any problems. This car has a backup camera that makes a noticeable alert if someone or something is coming near or directly behind my car. It also has sensors to of visual alert when someone is next to me in a parallel lane. The alert shuts off when it is safe to move into that lane. It has enough pick up while driving to move ahead of slowed traffic. This car has enough room either for a third row or in our case, my son's wheelchair AND all luggage necessary for our trips to see family. The one and only issue with this car is the fact that since it is built on a 2 wheel drive Ford truck frame, it is not as smooth of a drive especially if you are riding in the rear of my car. But I have not felt necessarily uncomfortable while riding in my car. Freeway driving is wonderful, but in-town driving with bumps and dips in the road are where I notice any discomfort but on a scale from 1-5 with 5 being worst comfort and 1 being comfortable, I would put this Ford Flex somewhere between 1 and 2. I would most definitely recommend this car to any growing family that is not interested in a minivan. This car looks sharp and sporty. This is the first car that I have kept longer than 2 years.
