Perfect family car, 3rd row seat without the full size fuel usage.
2014 Ford Flex SEL
I bought my Flex because of the 3rd row option. I went with the trim package that allowed for captain seats because I didn't like the idea of folding a seat to access the 3rd row. I have 3 kids. Two are in car seats and because the flex has full rear doors you don't have to be crazy strong and get into a crazy position when loading an infant car seat. Our 10 year old loves having the 3rd row, because at this age being nears your parents isn't 'cool' . We've driven out to Yellowstone and had so much room for the kids and our belongings. The car hugs the road and drives like a dream! I am so pleased with the decision to purchase the flex. I have the FWD option and absolutely love the fuel economy that comes with it. We get pretty good winters in our area and have never had any issues getting around. The way you sit in the car, you surprisingly don't have blind spots. I highly recommended the flex to families who want the room a 3rd row vehicle offers, but don't want to go with a full size option.
