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.

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.

In order to lose something, you had to have in the first place. Right??

'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.
