Expert Quotes:

Five stars

Top Safety Pick

You can’t find a vehicle safer than the Ford Flex, according to the government and the insurance industry.

The 2011 Flex has been chosen as a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), receiving the top ratings of "good" for both frontal offset and side impact collisions. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gives the Flex equally strong scores, rating it at five stars for both driver and passenger protection, and at four stars for rollover protection.

The Flex's comprehensive set of safety features includes six airbags, anti-lock brakes, and stability control with anti-rollover technology. A rearview camera and parking sensors are available, as are a blind-spot warning system and adaptive cruise control.

Ford added its MyKey system to the Flex in the 2010 model year, and it’s back for 2011. MyKey allows parents of teenage drivers to set limits on the Flex’s top speed, stereo volume, and other entertainment features, while keeping systems like traction and stability control enabled.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
