Flex LX V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 10,300 miles

This is the fourth time the "wrench" light has come on in my Flex. The first time, about 8 days ago, I was driving on the thruway going 55 mph. The light came on an I was no longer able to accelerate. I coasted to the right and ended up on a very small shoulder of the interstate. I turned off the car, and started it back up. When along, driving with no issues... until two days later. Driving on a side road, going about 25 mph, same thing. And repeat two more times. Called Ford, and they said there are no recalls, but I am taking it in on Wednesday. Hoping for a fix. Was alone both times, but this cannot happen with my three children in the car. Very unsafe.

  • Automatic transmission
  • 12,100 miles

Heading to work this morning, on the "Highway to Heaven" (narrow two lane highway) and lost engine power. A wrench icon popped up on the display, directing me to the manual, which indicated a power train failure. The car was towed to the dealer and have not heard any word back as of yet to what needs to be done. I purchased the car in February of this year and it is bit troubling that I am having issues like this. Hopefully, this can get fixed properly and quickly, with no more issues. Because, I had to turn off the car before I could get it towed. After reading through some of the complaints regarding this exact issue, apparently Ford has refused to replace parts if the warning light is no longer displayed. I am hoping that the dealership will recognize the issue even if the warning light is no longer on the display. I guess I will just have to wait and see.

Flex SE

  • Automatic transmission
  • 12,627 miles

I was coming home from church on the morning of 6-26-16 driving at 40 mph when the car lost power. Drivetrain malfunction/reduced power icon was displayed on instrument panel. I got the car off the road, put it in Park, turned the engine off, and removed key from the ignition switch. I waited a few minutes, put the key back in the switch, started the car back up, put the shifter in Drive and the icon was gone and I drove the car home. Currently waiting on a call back from the Ford dealership where I purchased the car to see what my next step will be. Paying a lot of money for a vehicle that is no more reliable than this!
