My wife was right when she insisted that we purchase our '09 Flex Limited with all-wheel drive. I have never experiened a more sure-footed vehicle. Have had several snows this winter here in Northern Missouri. Yesterday's snow was a real slick one--we made a 100-mile-trip to Des Moines and had no difficulty at all.

Yesterday morning my daughter-in-law put her '02 Windstar through a fence when she thought she was entering into a slide. That vehicle is not at all user friendly under slick conditions. We went down the same road with the Flex. (Her Windstar was my vehicle before getting the Flex.)

When I saw my son with his 4-wheel drive '04 F150 trying to get out of a snowdrift the other day, I was certainly glad to have AWD on the Flex. Of course, only two of his tires were not spinning--one on the back and one on the front.

So, this 69-year-old is thankful for a wise wife this winter.

Our Redfire Flex was purchased with the "Clunker Law" on August 7; it turned 14,300 miles last night at 11 pm when we returned from Des Moines. Retirement gives us more time to be "on the road."

We have yet to have any regret from purchasing the Flex--yes, some people think that it is ugly, but "what a vehicle." We happen to love how the Flex looks--can't please all the people all the time.
