| CarReview's opinion of the 2009 Ford Flex|
- Cavernous interior
- Unique styling
- Incredible fit and finish
- Lazy transmission
- Polarizing brick look - aka - biggie-sized Scion xB
- Some may think it's overpriced
Verdict: The highest quality, best built Ford we've driven in...dare we say...decades?
There's some dissent in the ranks of the automotive journalism world about the Flex. Some say it's yet another failed attempt by Ford at a new product, while others praise Ford up and down for finally doing something different and unique. We absolutely side with the latter. The Flex is a terrific machine. Yeah it has a weight problem, yeah, it is a little underpowered and yeah its fuel economy could be better, but you will be hard-pressed to find a better quality, stylish machine with so much room. It's really unfortunate that the Flex had to be introduced during such trying economic times, because if it was introduced five years ago, this machine would have been an overnight sensation for sure. In its first year Flex sales are lagging, but it surely isn't to the fault of the Flex. We love this machine, and for those who can justify the sticker price, it's a must drive.
