After a couple years I still dig my Flex, however one thing has bothered me for a while. I have never had a vehicle that dirties the engine compartment so badly just from driving.  Anyone else notice this or take any kind of action? I see it all, leaves, dirt, sand, dust, salt spray.  Just wondering.

I just moved here from Las Vegas and my 2006 E350's engine bay was sparking clean.  So far, this winter in Michigan has made it a total mess!   :rant2:

 

I feel for you :(

I feel your pain as well.  But that's the thing, I've always lived here and I am used to the winter mess, but there's something about the design of this car that either sucks the mess in the compartment or it gets in somewhere from below or around the wheelwells. I am used to doing light engine compartment cleanups on cars in the spring because that's all my other cars needed. But man, right now, only half way through winter, the Flex is devastated already.
