Brake Noise – Front Grunting / Grinding

Defective materials can cause the center console latch to break. The latch on the console lid should be replaced.

A leaking axle shaft seal and / or PTU cover seal can cause transmission (red) or Power Transfer Unit (PTU) (brown) fluid leaks at the axle area. The axle shaft seal and / or PTU cover seal may be leaking and should be replaced as required.

Excessive heat from engine compartment when running (1 answer)

We recently bought a 2010 Ford Flex. When the car is running and you are standing next to it, you feel a lot of heat from the engine that blows on you. It that normal or is there something wrong? We have not experienced this in the past with our other cars.

Ford Flex Reviews

Good car overall. Also had Trans leaks and brake grinding issues. Transmission was given new seals and seems to be holding. Brakes were done under recall but still grind and surge. Been a good car to our family. Had a Vista roof seal leak but also covered under warranty. Not having the ecoboost was my only regret. 2011 Flex Ltd AWD
