Ford Flex has Proven Itself as a Great Family Vehicle
2014 Ford Flex SE
As silly as it may sound, we chose the Flex so that our aging, extra large dog would have access to plenty of room. She hasn't ridden in it however, because it is higher off the ground than it appears in passing, and her hips do not tolerate jumping up anymore. Having said all of that, we love the Flex. We have taken it to beach and to the mountains. I have a tendency to overpack and there is never a shortage of space! It rides better than one might expect and provides enough acceleration that I am comfortable in high traffic situations. If I could improve anything, it would be the mpg (24-ish) but I imagine that is to be expected with a vehicle this size.
