We've updated results for the Flex based on owner experiences through June 30, 2010. Other sources of car reliability information won't cover the more recent months until the summer or even fall of next year.

Repair frequencies, in terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:

2010: 47

2009: 55

Both are about average.

We have two additional statistics, "Nada-odds" and "Lemon-odds," to indicate the percentage of cars with no repairs in the past year and those that required 3+ trips to the repair shop. We don't have these for the Flex yet, though, because they require a larger number of responses. So if you aren't already participating, please consider doing so.

In the case of the 2009 Flex, the percentage with no repairs is about 58, and the percentage of lemons is less than one.

A big thank you, once again, to this forum and everyone who has been helping. We'll have further updates in November and February.

We have some new pages that display all reported repairs by problem area:

2010 Ford Flex problem reports

From this page it's possible to select a different model year or specify a problem area.

We've updated our reliability stats for the Flex to include owner experiences through the end of 2015, about eight months ahead of other sources. In terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year--lower is better: 
 
2014 Flex: 81, high, small sample size
2013 Flex: 42, moderate
2012 Flex: 41, moderate, very small sample size
2011 Flex: 43, moderate
2010 Flex: 57, moderate
2009 Flex: 42, low
 
We have two additional statistics, "Nada-odds" and "Lemon-odds", to indicate the percentage of cars with no repairs in the past year and those that required 3+ trips to the repair shop:
 
2011 Flex: 71, < 1
2010 Flex: 62, 3
2009 Flex: 76, < 1
 
No stat, or a small sample size? Then we especially need more owners involved for that model year.
