Pros

New powerful, efficient EcoBoost engine; three rows of seating; distinctive, aggressive styling


Model News

The big news for the 2011 Ford Flex is the addition of a new trim level, called Titanium. It takes over as the new range topping model, adding blackout treatment for headlights and taillights, black chrome grille, moldings and trim, polished aluminum 20-inch wheels, Charcoal black leather seats with Alcantara suede inserts, and four special exterior colors: Red Candy, White Platinum, Tuxedo Black and Ingot Silver with black roof.


Value Writeup

The Ford Flex is a crossover vehicle that actually has enough space for seven grownups and their gear -- and a 4500-lb towing capacity. Available all-wheel drive makes it a capable sport truck, though not a full-blown off-roader. The wide stance and aggressive 3-bar grille give the Flex a street-smart presence as well. It's a well-rounded crossover that starts just under $30,000.


Model Highlights

Ford plans to put its new EcoBoost engine in 90% of its vehicles by 2013, starting with the Ford Flex and the LINCOLN MKS and LINCOLN MKT. The 3.5L V6 is turbocharged and direct-injected, the first of its kind to be built in North America. Its power is comparable to a normally aspirated 4.6L V8 while getting V6 gas mileage.

The EcoBoost engine is an option on the SEL and Limited models with all-wheel drive. The standard engine for all trim levels -- SE, SEL and Limited -- is a normally aspirated 3.5L V6 with 262 hp and 248 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission, another fuel-saving feature Ford plans to incorporate into more of its vehicles.

Safety and handling systems include independent front and rear roll stability control, ABS, air bags including canopy and side curtain bags for all three rows and tire pressure monitoring.

Trim levels stay the same for 2011, with the exception of a new Titanium range-topper. The front-wheel-drive SE returns as the base trim, with features such as a reverse sensing system, capless fuel tank, rear climate system, power everything and rear reading lamps all standard. The Microsoft SYNC information and entertainment system is optional, as is an audio system upgrade.

The SEL adds standard niceties like a 10-way heated power seat, dual-zone climate control, SYNC and a universal garage door opener. Options include a rear DVD entertainment system, Sony sound system, refrigerated rear console, Vista roof and 20" aluminum wheels with the EcoBoost package.

The Limited adds standard 10-way heated power seats with memory function, a 110-volt inverter, second-row footrests, power liftgate, LED tail lamps, HID headlamps and power heated mirrors. Options are generally the same as the SEL, like the Vista roof and rear refrigerated console for beverages.

For 2011, the Flex Titanium replaces the Limited as the top-of-the-line model. Features include all of the Limited's equipment, as well as blacked-out headlamps and tail lamps, black chrome grille and trim, polished 20-inch wheels, black leather seats with Alacantara inserts, and four additional color choices.

Summary
Ford Moor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2011-2012 Ford Fusion vehicles without a 3.5L engine and Lincoln MKZ hybrid electric vehicles, 2011 Mercury Milan vehicles, 2011-2012 Ford Taurus, Ford Flex, Lincoln MKS, and Lincoln MKT vehicles equipped with a 3.5L GTDI engine and 2013 Ford Taurus, Ford Flex, Lincoln MKS, and Lincoln MKT vehicles equipped with any available engine. The affected vehicles have electric power steering assist systems that may shut down as a result of a steering motor sensor fault.

Consequence
If the vehicle experiences a loss of power steering assist, extra steering effort will be required at lower speeds, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will check the Power Steering Control Module (PSCM) for Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC). If dealers find any loss of steering assist DTCs, the steering gear will be replaced, free of charge. If, no codes are found during the PSCM inspection, the PSCM software will be updated, free of charge. Interim notices were mailed to owners on July 20, 2015. Owners will receive a second notice when the remedy becomes available. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 15S18.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Summary
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2009-2012 Ford Flex, 2008 and 2010-2012 Ford Taurus, 2008-2009 Ford Taurus X, 2008 Mercury Sable, 2009 and 2011 Lincoln MKS vehicles. The driver frontal air bag may improperly inflate during second-stage deployment in the event of a high speed crash. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 208, "Occupant Crash Protection."

Consequence
An improperly inflated air bag increases the risk of injury in the event of a crash.

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace the driver's frontal air bag module, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on June 13, 2016. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 16C06.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Frontal crash test results are valid for 2011 model year vehicles manufactured before July 2, 2010.

Male/Female Dummy Note
Male: Average sized adult male dummy in 35-MPH crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs. Female: Small-sized adult female dummy in 35-mph crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs.

Rollover Note
Dynamic (moving) test results (Tip or No Tip) and measured rollover-related properties determine vehicle's risk of rollover in single vehicle crash and its rollover rating. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is.
