With a distinctive boxy shape combining the elements of an SUV, minivan and station wagon, the Flex is a very functional and versatile vehicle. The base 3.5-liter V6 engine was updated over the years in an attempt to improve acceleration and fuel economy, but it still falls short on refinement.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Owner Satisfaction with:

Driving Experience

Includes acceleration and handling

What Owners Say

"Electric power steering is NOT as smooth as hydrualic. Somewhat difficult to feel the road. Ford apparently has issue with front-end alignment on electric power steering vehicles. As dealership checks front end on every vehicle brought in."

Anonymous, AL (2015 Ford Flex)

"Handling is amazing for a vehicle of this type. I dare say it handles as well as my Mustang! Acceleration for the base, non-ecoboost engine is more than adequate."

MICHAEL S., OH (2015 Ford Flex)

"For a big car, the Flex is very quick and nimble."

Richard C., VT (2015 Ford Flex)

"The Flex has a powerful acceleration when necessary and I do enjoy couple times to experience that feature. It seems that has a powerful turbo engine!"

Christian T., CA (2015 Ford Flex)

"It is a large station wagon. It handles, isolates, and drive quite nicely for a family vehicle."

Anonymous, GA (2015 Ford Flex)

"It handles great on wet, dry or snow covered roads. The crouse control is great, it adjusts as you come up to another car that is moving slower than me."

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
