I have a nickname for the Ford Flex. “The Converter”. And no, it doesn’t have a removable roof, nor did it cause me to change my religion.

2009 Ford Flex

Trim: Limited

Bearings and Brakes
Both front wheel bearings had to be replaced at 34000km.
Both rear wheel bearings had to be replaced at 41000km.

Although brakes stop car well, they make a grinding noise when more than moderate brake pressure is applied. Had all rotors machined and rear pads replaced (due to separation) at 41000km. Grinding noise continues when more than moderate brake pressure is applied.

Stable, quiet, comfortable and economical on the highway.
Transmission noisy. Higher than expected fuel consumption in the city.

2010 Ford Flex

Trim: SEL

Sweet Ride
We've had our Flex for 6 months or so, and are extremely happy. It's quick when it needs to be, but is also good on gas (getting 11l/100km with a lot of in town driving). It's stylish, and functional, plus the kids can easily get into the 3rd row with the power seat fold function. As for reliability, it's maybe a bit early to tell, but Consumer's Report rated it very good for predicted reliability, so I'm hoping that is true!

2009 Ford Flex

Trim: Limited AWD with FORD EXTENDED WARRANTY UNTIL AUG 2014
by ComputerDan on 10-15-2012
Has to be one of the nicest crossovers on the road today
The Ford Flex has been the best vehicle I have ever purchased. Not only does it seat 6 really comfortably, it also does it in luxurious style.

The built in fridge/freezer is such a welcome addition for those trips back and forth to the cottage or on a weekend getaway - or basically any day really.

The sound system is nothing short of awesome. Having Microsoft SYNC and bluetooth handsree/streaming is really great as well. The navigation system has never failed me either.

All in all, this has been a perfect car for our family. Having an extended factory warranty which covers everything from bumper to bumper makes it a no brainer for future owners. Having it takes the risk out of buying a used vehicle. And it's not a third party warranty provider either - you simply take it to your local Ford dealer for warranty work.

Love this car!
