I would like to say how impressed my family and I are with our 2009 Ford Flex. My wife and daughter were in the vehicle when they were rear ended by another car that didn’t even brake. The other person was probably using the cell phone, didn’t have the Sync system. Everyone was fine, a little sore but nothing a massage from Mike Rowe couldn’t fix my wife said. The other car was not drivable but the Flex absorbed the impact and the bumper performed as it was suppose to. There was a 5 gallon can of gas in the rear compartment of the flex that didn’t even spill upon impact. We have really loved our Flex and this was another reason added to it. Thanks.
