Editor's Overview

The 2014 Ford Flex is not your typical 7-passenger family vehicle. The silhouette suggests the big station wagons of the 1960s and 1970s, and it sits lower and sleeker than a typical SUV...

The extremely versatile Ford flex.

My Ford flex has not disappointed. The third row is an exceptional help with three children. The storage options are plentiful from a large arm rest to cup holders in the doors in the rear. The third row fold flat seats are extremely easy to manipulate. Instructions are printed on the rear of the third row seats. You also have the option of folding only the back of the seats down which leaves a deep trunk-like area. Additionally, the large cargo area available with fold flat seats is great for grocery shopping or loading up all of our camping gear. We added cross rails and a hitch and are able to pull a large 8x10 foot trailer and add a cargo box to the top for vacations. The vehicle is very versatile. There are a couple negatives. One negative is the need for three alignments in six months. I am not sure if it is because of the vehicle or not, but I am a careful driver to avoid poor roads or potholes. Also, the vehicle is very cavernous and it is difficult to hear someone in the third row up front from the driver’s seat. Overall, I feel like we purchased the perfect vehicle for our family. The additional third row adds passenger capacity, but also allowed for conversion into more cargo space. The Ford flex drives really well with minimal road noise. The addition of cross rails and a hitch make this vehicle as functional as a pickup truck in my opinion. I am very pleased with our purchase and would recommend the Ford flex to anyone looking to purchase a vehicle.

My flex, the nicest car I have ever owned.

My flex has had few problems. I have done regular maintenance. I replaced the battery. Entry the car is the same as a sedan, it is not raised like most SUVs. My mom is 91 and it is as easy for her to get in the flex as the sedan she owns. I get better gas mileage than most SUVs. I have a heavy foot and do not baby the flex at all. It is very comfortable for five adults. I leave the back seats down for storage or luggage. I have owned a decent selection of cars, most were purchased new. I purchased my flex used, but it was very close to new. I have taken it on a trip to New England from Ohio. It handled well. No problems keeping up with the faster cars or in traffic with big trucks I'd describe the flex as luxury. You set the temperature and it either heats or cools to your preference whether it is hot or cold outside. With the radio off the flex is quiet unless you punch the accelerator, then you'll hear the engine. I do not use the radio to listen to broadcast news or music. I listen to music I have loaded onto a flash drive. I think it is the nicest vehicle I have ever owned.

Ford flex not good for the drive in. But a great car nonetheless.

Love it. Gas mileage is not the greatest but what do you expect for a 7 seater. It is super roomie, all seats are comfortable, no matter where you are in the vehicle. My only complaint so far is, you cannot turn off the dome lights and have the doors open at the same time, we have a drive in movie theatre in town and our car was the only one in the lot without lights on, I have spoken with other flex owners and they have the same experience. Also the car will shut off for battery saving mode every so often when in drive in. So it is not a good drive in car. But not many left I am sure. One more complaint, the 2 small plastic window shields in the back are always cracked on most I have seen, bad design.
