After 2 months of research to replace my wrecked Honda Accord 4dr due to an accident, it came down to the Honda Pilot, GMC Terrain, and the Ford Flex.(Test drove all 3 vehicles) Cons about the Honda is that although it seats 8, they're all cramped up in the back. GMC on the other hand, although it gets better gas milage than the Flex is that it only seats 5. Might as well get a car. Flex became an easier choice due to having the capability to seat 7 full sized adults comfortably in long road trips. The 3.5L V6 is gentle and is easy on the acceleration. The power is there when you need it. The ride comfort is by far the best one I've been in. It is not too soft and definately not rough. I've had a Merc E-Class in the past and I thought that rode best on the road but this by far with it's low stance is better. The ride is very quiet even when driving on graveled roads. The navigation system w/ Microsoft SYNC is great and easy to use. You get to see live traffic, sports scores/schedules, weather forecasts, movie times/locations. MPG wise I'm doing 19.5-23mpg. Initially I was only doing 16mpg, but once I put 1000 miles on it...it got better. The interior detailing is excellent. Wood trims, very comfortable seats from the leather.
The only thing I'd doc on this vehicle would be the transmission. It sometimes it gets confused and can't make up its mind whether to upshift or down shift when overtaking on the freeway. It takes about 1 second to calculate on what to do. But I think it does this so it maintains the smoothness of the ride and not just jerk you as you accelerate. After it's done calculating and picks a gear, it accelarates very smoothly. The exterior looks of this flex is not for every one. Its boxy and its retro. It looks smaller than most SUV/crossovers. But it's 17 feet long, seats 7 w/ lots of room, and the 2nd and 3rd row seats fold flat if you wanna haul and occasional cabinet or couch. whats not to love!!!
