Good People Hauler Especially The 3rd Row. — If you're looking for a family vehicle that is a modern equivalent of the classic American station wagon, the 2013 Ford Flex could be the one. It offers seating for six or seven, a range of models and prices, available all-wheel drive, and a turbocharged V6 EcoBoost engine.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Plenty of interior space, very quiet and smooth. Interior is nice and refined. Plenty of technology options.

Cons: Looks like a toaster, Engine needs more power when put under strain.

Great "big Cargo" Wagon With Style And A Great Ride — One of the biggest, smoothest riding cars out there. A suburban style interior, in a station wagon body. Great fuel economy for the size of the car, (our front-wheel 2011 often got 25 mpg why). One the best rides. And I'm told that it's got some of the best reliability ratings and owner loyalties in the Ford family. We were quick to get our second Flex!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Huge car with a great ride.

Cons: AWD cuts into fuel economy by two points, as expected.

First Rate Family Hauler. — The ride and handling are awesome. Room is comparable to full size SUV models and the room for passengers is unbeatable. The Flex offers as much room as the full size SUV models yet achieves far better overall fuel economy.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Lots of room for cargo and people.
The all wheel drive system came in handy this winter.

Cons: Nothing that I can think of.

Get It For The Wife. — Decent power, great gas mileage (for its size). It is a SUV meant for a woman and not for a guy 6' tall, I can't get comfortable while driving it. My wife loves it. This is our second one so it cant be all bad.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great People mover.

Cons: Cant drive it with-out getting sore.

A Perfect Mix Of Crossover Meets Car — The Flex hands down, is by far the best vehicle our family has ever owned!!! It has all the luxuries of even the highest end vehicles while providing all the comforts of home. On the road, all the safety equipment and aides the Flex has leaves me assured that my family is safe and secure. Spacious interior makes it a comfy ride for my growing boys and their friends and even nice for the more vertically challenged like myself. The Flex is stylish on the road and easy to drive. The truck has several safety features to keep all inside protected. It has great pep in the V6 that provides rapid acceleration and hugs even the tightest corners with ease. The designers truly thought of everything when designing this vehicle. I wasn't sure about the quirky look when they first came out but I am now a true convert-when away from home, my Flex is most certainly the next best thing.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Extremely spacious interior in all 3 rows.  It makes the ride comfortable for very tall or even the horizontally or vertically challenged :). The safety features are excellent in providing many driver assist help to the amount of air bags providing protection for all inside.  The SYNC and screen provide ease of use for climate, phone, data and entertainment.  The backup camera and sensors provide added protection and visibility.  The Flex hugs the road nicely in any type of weather or on any road surface.  Even with the size, the Flex handles like a car with quick stop and turn abilities.  Gas milage is fantastic for a V6.  Getting anywhere from 18-22 mpg in city and 24-29 on the hwy!  The sensor cruise control helps with keeping distance when making that long distance trip.  Ford thought of everything when designing this vehicle.

Cons: Not one thing would I change!!! Other then maybe informing the Ford Sales staff more about how to use the SYNC computer in the truck

Perfect For A Small Family, As Comfort Cruiser, Or As A Mobile Office. —

As our Ford Escape lease was closing out we were shopping again. We really liked the Escape but wanted a more comfortable and upscale product. We shopped the X5, Q7, Grand Cherokee, Durango, Edge, Cross Country, and Evoque. Lots of great products, and my wife was set on another Q7 TDI, we'd had two before the Escape. As a last minute decision we drove the Flex and she instantly felt at home. Not saying she liked the Flex more than the Q7, but once cost was factored in, the choice was easy. At the end of the day she found the Flex easy to drive, very comfortable, and had a ton of useable storage. She works out of her vehicle and places a lot of value on those factors. Also, the way the second and third row seats reconfigure is simple to operate, viz is good all around, and all the controls are easy to figure and operate. This is our second Ford with Sync, so we know and now like the system...but there is a learning curve imposed by the system. Power is OK, I wouldn't mind having the EcoBoost though. One thing I really like about the car is how well its steering, ride, brakes, and throttle are sorted, all very linear and evenly weighted. No lurches or secondary movements just about every SUV imposes. Our mileage in about 40/60 city/highway has been around 23 mpg. Frankly, my wife feels the Flex is a special and unique vehicle, it fits her. As an update, we actually purchased our second Flex. Because we put around 25k miles yearly on the primary vehicle, it was time for a fresh start. This model was essentially identical to the first with one exception -- we passed on the sunroof. We like the airiness the glass roof gave the rear seats but we grown to hate the litany of rattles and squeaks that seemed to come from the roof area---a quick test drive in a roofless model clearly indicated the multiple glass panes and sliding screens were the cause. So no roof and the new Flex is completely squeakless after 5k miles. We also had a chance to take the Flex on a long road trip with kids and all the stuff that means. The journey reaffirmed our belief that this is the ultimate family highway machine...just incredibly comfortable, roomy, and with all the right toys.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Styling. Always a matter of taste, but we find the style different, refreshing, and clean. Very comfortable, with an feeling of strong systems integration--everything seems to work in concert with minimal discomfort or effort. The radar cruise control is like your first car with air or power windows, seemingly unneeded, then suddenly essential once you have it. Ford has done a great job bringing so much tech...practical tech, into its vehicles without it becoming distracting or overly complex, just seamlessly executed. For its size, competent handling matched with a supple, quiet ride.

Cons: We don't have parking sensors up front, should be part of the Limited package as standard...for that matter, a vehicle this big given its likely role should have them standard across the line. Gas mileage is just Ok, but that's part of the size equation. We wanted, but did not get the center console for the second row. We mistakenly thought the $100 option could be easily retrofitted. not true, that $100 option is a $600 (unassembled) post purchase expense. There's a huge demand the them for people in a similar situation.

Great Family Car — As a family man, this is my favorite car yet. The second row seat is truly vast. The back seat is more than useable while not on par with the larger suburban/expedition class of SUV. Braking is a little vague. I'd like it to be a little more assertive. The turbo ecoboost certainly delivers the power! That's the most impressive feature of this car. The most disappointing aspect is the whole entertainment/Bluetooth/climate control module. 30% of the time my phone won't connect automatically. Often times the stereo/streaming audio will give you fits. I just think it needs a whole rework to get it right. Overall however, this is a truly great family car. I travel a lot, and for poor road conditions, the awd is a very satisfying must.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Comfort, quietness, power

Cons: Sync, door sensors, braking
