I bought 3 days ago a brand new 2011 Titanium Flex Ecoboost fully loaded top of the line, I was driving in an unknown territory the navigation system stopped working, the voice command is not picking up and the system shot down!
I was so scared! I don't know the place, thanks to i phone I was able to find my way out.
My husband called sync support, they instructed him to re-set everything, it did not work...he worked with them on the phone for 2 hours....it was not fixed and apparently our neighbor saw my husband struggling he told him to bring it back to dealership because he have a flex too and end up trading it because it has a lot of problem.
The car is 3 days old and it is giving me problem already...I don't know what will be next!!!
DONT BUY FLEX! DONT WASTE YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY!!!!

Our 2009 AWD Flex had a low growl that kept on getting worse until one day it wouldn't move. It turned out the transmission fluid was so low it didn't show on the dip stick. I think the Ford dealer ended up replacing some seals under warranty, after we put a lot of fluid in to get it going again.
#83 of 88 Clicking noise / recirc door
Sep 25, 2011 (7:15 pm)
Ford needs to get its act together with vent doors. After having to do the online blend door fix on my 97 Explorer (still holding), now my 2009 Flex makes a clicking noise whenever the air system is not on recirculation. I dropped the glove box door and the noise is definitely coming from the motor or actuator behind the glove box on the recirc vent. Has anyone else had this problem and can recommend a fix?

To tell you the truth we brought the Flex for all the options inside that we wanted but couldn't afford in another car. We weren't impressed with the style. But after owning it just a week we are in love with it. We even like the looks of it now. The roof rails, add to it and we are having the FLEX lettering added to the front like in the Titanium model. We just cannot believe the luxury and all the options in this car for the cost. Great value, hopefully we feel this way after a year or two. We needed the room for our extended family road trips and vacations, and now have it plus some.

Congrats. We love the flex too. I wish I could have kept it and get a new truck too, but one took priority over the other, so someone will be getting a nice Flex EB. Kids are mad at me though, I got rid of both their favorite cars.

I have a 2010 Flex SEL with the same problem. I called the dealer and they told me it is the actuator for the recirculating door. I am in the process of taking apart the dash/radio bezel to access the part but am struggling with the bezel removal. I have already removed the bezel over the shift lever and removed the 2 bolts from the radio bezel but can't get it to move. I am afraid to pull on it too hard for fear of breaking the bezel. Any thoughts?

No longer under warranty? I would let the dealer fix it, before you break something that can cost more than the actual repairs. Been there done that.

I agree 100% about the golf clubs!! How dumb is right!! We almost did not buy our Flex based just on that. Other than that (and it's a biggie) we really do love the vehicle. Rides like a dream.
