Traveling, Pt. II

Nearly the entire transaction took place over text - how cool is that? Additionally, they gave us top dollar on the Ranger trade-in. Meet the 2016 Ford Flex Limited. Seats seven, eight cupholders, plenty of outlets for everyone's electronic devices, and there's more legroom in the rear seats than up front. The V6 has impressive power (though I am considering a K&N air filter for more horses and better gas mileage.

Equally as important, its a quiet vehicle. Driving all over creation and back this weekend was a absolute breeze. We'd originally wanted a dark colored vehicle with the white leather interior, but the price on this white vehicle with the black leather interior could not be passed up, especially given Spring Break approaching and Summer on its heels. We have a lot of traveling to do, and now we can do it in relative comfort. Given the opportunity, I will always buy my vehicles at Marmie's in Great Bend, KS!

Interesting! I'm starting to do research on getting a new SUV. This one may be a little large for what I want as I want something with a shorter wheel base than the Magnum. But I will take a look. Nice ride.

Try this, the smallest (read affordable) "luxury" SUV. I've read great things about it, and believe it or not, its a Buick?!?!?!

looking sharp and clean. sure, the white will show dirt, but it's way better than having a dark vehicle, which is just that much more of an oven. lol

I've had both black and white cars and the darker colored ones always seem to show the dirt quicker than the white ones. Sadly, this one does have a black interior, but tinted windows always help with that.

i never really noticed, because i'm not washing the car, anyway. lol yeah, you might get some sticking/burning sitting down, but hopefully the tint will help.

I FORGOT ABOUT YOUR AVATAR! How cool is that? Thanks, it really is. The entire vehicle is like a stress-free zone. It is so quiet, and so comfortable, that even driving in rush-hour traffic in Wichita is a non-issue. Its a total zenmobile. And this might surprise you - despite its size, it appears to have less roll than my Tiburon on corners. Crazy, right? More testing needs to be done :D

Since you've bought your Flex, I now have seen a couple. I like that they have a distinctive look about them. And I do imagine the inside is quite comfy.
