( ) The 2013 Ford Flex and the 2013 Mazda CX-9 are both three row people haulers that are perfect for hauling families and all of their stuff on vacation. But what if you want to go a camping camping? In another fun TFLcar Mashup Review we compare the newest 2013 Ford Flex…


  1. Im not sure if they said it but these cars ride on the same platform and that would've been great to hear in the comparison

  2. They are doing something wrong. Especially sleeping in the back. I put a fridge in the back of my mkT and that's with a sloped roof. The Flex is a damn box. So yeah, this had to be biased.

  3. I worked for Ford service dept… We hardley ever seen flexs… For anything but oil changes…NEVER issues… I'm buying one.

  4. How to piss off a flex owner!! Don't put both big coolers in at the same time. Put one in and put the smaller cooler on top by putting it in on the empty side and sliding it on top of the big one!! Then put the other big one in!! This is what happens when you use chevy guys to pack a ford!! Thanks for wasting our time with this stupidity!! 4 alcoholics go on a camping trip and need 3 coolers!!

  5. A time when TFL Car was funny and fun to watch. They seem to have lost that dynamic.

  6. I can fit my 12 piece drumset in my ford flex 2013 . those guys dont know crap .

  7. the mazda is nice ok but where his family is going to seat to go camping flex wins but vehicles are great..

  8. Rarely, have I seen a video with so much wasted time. Was able to fast forward through most of it.

  9. Now if you had a 2010 Flex, your second row would slide

  10. Andre needs to go back to just speaking Russian.

  11. The Flex is a great vehicle, handles the highway so nice on long trips. It's low, wide and stable. Not to mention it's a cool looking vehicle. It's like a retro station wagon. Plus they are locally assembled not an import. You are providing work for Americans and Canadians. : )

  12. Yeah, I would've lost that bet

  13. This is literally the worst packing I’ve seen in a long time…
    I’d rather let my kids toss everything we need in for better results….

  14. Who takes 3 god damn coolers on a road trip?

  15. Flex is bigger and it Ecoboost come over it 365 horsepower

  16. that is a lot of crap not needed

  17. Андрюха красавчег.. только нужно наверное немного попустить этих умников) жги.. они все одно не поймут)

  18. Doesn't matter Ford Flex looks super cool and offers twin turbo very good awd and day to day more practical.

  19. Still, I would prefer the flex. Looks like Nathan got bigger since 2013?

  20. …SO where will all the Family SLEEP……..???….LoL……..

  21. This is comparing a station wagon to an SUV!!?!

  22. thanks guys, this was a very good test/review in my opinion. im thinking of living in a car for a while. and this clears alot of questions without going to the dealership

  23. Really not informative at all.  The Flex and CX9 are pretty different vehicles and the seat configuration they showed for the Flex was impractical.  Seemed more like a commercial for the Mazda and the "tests" were silly.

  24. My parents have one it has a good amount of cargo space

  25. these guys are pretty gunny. I want a flex

  26. I thought the flex would win in the beginning

  27. This seemed rigged against the Ford from the beginning. The Mazda looks like every other SUV (or whatever they're called now) in the market. I don't have either vehicle, although I am considering both for my next purchase. I'm leaning toward the Flex with Eco boost.

  28. The music ruined the video

  29. A 2016 Flex has a very inefficient cargo design for packing some things. The width is only 41 inches until you get over 8 inches off the floor.

  30. To me this flex is a better looking car but the Mazda seems more practical for moving stuff. On a side note when I got my wife her 08 KIA Rondo I was pleasantly surprised out how much cargo room and the storage features they put in such a tiny car.

  31. so you cheated with the Mazda and never showed a fair test. thanks for wasting 10 minutes of my time

  32. They have the same engine.
