Dislike mpg. No room in front for purse. Dislike that it is being discontinued!! Dislike that there is no overhead handle on drivers side (bad leg). Dislike some of the entry directions. Dislike that I really needed a couple classes on driving flex. Still learning..... Love the interior room. Only vehicle that fits my big man that is not a truck! Love the interior room! Love the 3rd row lay down seats. Love the interior room. Love my color. Love that it is perfect height for me and elderly mom to get in and out because we can use running boards. Love keyless entry. Love connection to apps, weather radar, etc. Love backup sensor..

Choice between minivan or a flex.

The car drives very smoothly. It gives you a truck feel but not a rough drive. It is reliable but it guzzles gas. I drive a lot and I have to fill up every 4 days. I enjoy the cars head room but the truck space is not great. I have a double stroller and cannot do a decent grocery run with all the kids and stuff in my trunk. I don't really like the center console. I feel like it is too bulky and not much space for my purse between seats. It takes up space in the car. Overall, good car. But if you are going to decide between and minivan and this car. . . Go with a minivan.

It is a comfortable drive in town or long distance.

The Ford flex is the best car I have owned. It had a few recalls in the beginning but other than that I have no complaints. It has so much room, comfortably seats six adults and has more room in back for either luggage or groceries. I love that there is separate air condition controls for the front and back. The seats are very comfortable. The flex is a great family car.
