2014 Ford Flex - Hinge would not let center console open and very hard to close, then whole lid popped off. It was just held on with 4 small screws in plastic.
latch broke (or spring came loose). Dealer repaired under warranty. broke again at 46K I'm going to go buy the torx tools and take it apart myself
Center console had popping noise and resisance when trying to open it. This was with normal use and no missuse or damage. The whole console lid came off... Now I have to repair or replace
dealer would not repair faulty latch. one month out of warranty! also faulty brakes.
Ford does not stand behind their products.
VERY disatisfied with Ford.
Console hinge broke 2 days out of warranty. Sam pack ford Plano wont fix it. Been trying for 2 months to get them to deal with it. Nothing but run around
It was popping and catching. Now it has completely broken. I'm at the dealership NOW. And they are trying to tell me it may not be under warranty. It happened from misuse
