The base engine can be paired with front- or all-wheel drive, while the EcoBoost engine is only available with all-wheel drive. Not a fault of the turbos nor the design. People seeing the Flex for the first time generally agree it has presence and a variety of upscale cues. In practice, there are some limitations. Cornering is level and quiet. The exceptionally open cabin seats seven adults comfortably and its second-row seats are about the most spacious you'll find. Still would like to eliminate it though.
In the dash department, the EcoBoosted Flex moves out with crazy authority. In any event it is still broke. Mom tested and kid approved! The recommendation I made above before finding out about 3 stands firmly sell while you can. Cylinder washing from stuck fuel injector s could easily be a cause of scored cylinder walls and oil consumption. I really enjoy the Microsoft Sync system, It has the best blue tooth for smart phone ever.
New for the 2011 model year is a Titanium package with distinct styling pieces and colors. Farther down, the response is more linear. For a vehicle that starts right around 30 grand, the Flex is generally meant for the people-moving masses, a hipper depending on what you consider hip alternative to the minivan set, with lots of room for multiple humans and their stuff.

He replaced these with no charge to me quickly and politely. If you desire, you can push the paddle shifters with your thumbs in order to get a little more control over the six-speed automatic's shifts. I have also changed the coils, plugs and cleaned the sensors. The phone integrates with the vehicle seamlessly and the satellite feature is great to have. The 2013 Flex update brought the addition of variable cam timing to the 3.
So i have a 2011 ford flex ecoboost with 110k miles with 50k engine. I vacuumed out the intercooler and got a little dark fluid, not a load. Purchsed the vehicle used with 11,000 miles on it. We tested a front-wheel-drive Flex Titanium with a standard 3. The 2011 Ford Flex has angled its way into a rare phenomenon. Beyond the brightwork, the Flex has a series of small, horizontal, body-color indents stamped into the door panels.
This sense of confinement is exacerbated by all rear side glass being fixed, as well as the rear window. We called Ford to get the full story, and we're… It's easy to spend Lincoln money on a Ford these days. In the third row, a single glass pane extends across the seat from left to right. I would definetly recommend this car. The only noise you hear while underway comes from the mirrors, but even this is only slight and at speeds over 65 mph. A rearview camera and parking sensors are available, as are a blind-spot warning system and adaptive cruise control.
For a 4800-odd-pound boxy hulk, this Flex flat out flies in a straight line. My young boys comment every day how cool moms car is now! A self-parking system, capable of easily and accurately slotting the Flex into a tight parallel parking space, is offered as an option. The overall box shape suggests interior room and maximum space utilization. Adults can even get in and out of the third row easily. It outpaces even the Range Rover with e-gear like real-time traffic and movie times, an in-car refrigerator, and second-row footrests for your most important passengers.

While most cars show more attention and budget devoted to exterior design than interior design, it's clear the Flex interior designers were given free reign and considerable budget to work their magic and get things right. The driver frontal air bag may improperly inflate during second-stage deployment in the event of a high speed crash. The car has great handeling and fuel mileage is good and the performance is just as impressive. My husband is a big guy and it's the first car we've owned that offers him the room he needs.
