Ford Motor Company allowed me to test-drive their 2009 Ford Flex November 25th – December 1st. I took the test-drive a bit further. I (along with the 5 men in my life) test-drove the Ford Flex on a road trip to Pittsburgh, PA.
500 miles. 5 states – Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. A 6’2″ husband. And 4 boys – 4 and under – all in carseats.
Ford has always been special to us. My husband and I met at Brown University. And one of the reasons he “stood” out to me was that he used to tool around campus in a Ford Econoline Van that he named “Shirly.” Everyone knew “Shirly.” And Miss “Shirly” stayed with us for 3 years – one of which being while we lived in NYC. And every single night we would drive around trying to find street parking that would fit “Shirly.” “She” was rough and tough and safe. Something we loved about her.
Well… we’ve come a long way since those days. And with that has come 4 boys.
We still need something rough and tough and safe… but something designed for a family.
Enter the Ford Flex.
