great wagon, bought to replace our Honda Odyssey
Our Honda was a good car except the rear tow bar was always scraping and bottoming out at the end of the driveway to Dunkin Donuts, mother-in-law's driveway, MdDonalds, etc. Whenever we would try to tow a cargo trailer the lights wouldn't work, and when we went to the Honda dealer to get it fixed, they couldn't fix it after making us wait a week to get it back. Got fed up with Honda and ordered the Flex. Just as much room as the Honda, a LOT quieter, and the seats are the most comfortable we have ridden. The Nav system with Sync works with my bluetooth cell phone. And unlike a lot of other systems we plug into the cigarette lighter, this actually works, and works well. We ordered with the Vista Roof, Power hatchback, and console refrigerator. We get about 28mpg on the highway if we keep it at 55mph. Drops down to 24 when you do 65mph. The Honda never did better than 18mpg, so a big plus on the gas bill. When we go to BJ's and Costco, can still load up everything we buy on a regular basis. A surprisingly well designed, well built car from Ford. Looks like a Toyota Scion on steroids. One issue is due to the aerodynamics of the vehicle: wehn your 5 year old opens the rear window while you're driving down the highway, there is a terrific wind noise. We keep the window buttons locked due to this. We've had it 4 weeks so far and no problems, and we are enjoying the car immensely. I just hope sometime soon they come out with a "woodie" version, so we can have the ultimate grocery-getter.
