Driver Jim is starting off with a positive reputation.
Desire: The Flex

One of these days, I'm going to buy me a Flex.

Are there any issues I should know about? How easy is it to maintain/work on? What are the owner's MPGs (which I'd believe over the EPA sticker)?

It's a sharp looking ride, just perfect for what I need.

Diamnd1 is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Get a sunroof! BAD wind buffeting if you do not have all windows down at or near equal height. It is hard on the outer portion of front tires. These are the cons I have experienced with mine. I have 2013 SEL AWD. Just drove a 4000 mile trip on vacay and it was like sitting in a super comfortable recliner. I got 22.5 mpg combined over the whole trip and that is about what I get at home driving around town. We love ours and would probably get another, just with a sunroof next time. I.E. we just came out of 4 straight Nissan Muranos all with over 100k.

'12 Limited AWD here with the Vista roof. We love this car, rides as nice as our Lincoln MKS with twice the space. I average 18 mpg around town, got close to 23 on a recent 2500 mile round trip to FL.
