Ford Flex Reliability

You won't find Ford Flex reliability information like this anywhere else. Actual repair frequencies, not just vague dots. So you can tell how much the Ford Flex truly differs from competing car models in reliability.

These stats are promptly updated four times a year, to much more closely track Ford Flex reliability as the cars age. Others tell you how reliable the Ford Flex was a year ago, when the cars were a year younger and had 12,000 fewer miles on them. Only TrueDelta tells you how reliable the Ford Flex has been recently.
