The little wifey and I had a leisurely Saturday afternoon, so we moseyed on down to the local Ford dealership in my company Ford pickup to see what this new Ford Flex was all about. We test drove a fully loaded AWD model. It is a nice car. V6, but not too bad. Felt pretty good. The interior is the best Ford quality I have ever seen. About 80% of the Toureg quality, if you don't mind plastic faux wood trim. The Nav system is the best I have ever seen. After we came back to the dealership, the manager asked us what we were currently driving. I told him and he said he knew the owner of the local VW dealership and could get me a really good trade in price. I didn't tell him I went to high school with the guy. he he. Anyway, after he did all of his magic on the $43K sticker price, he offered the Flex for $37K. We went home and took the Toureg out for a little dinner drive, and I immediately lost interest in that $37K Ford. The Toureg is so much more automobile.
